Default Best or favorite zero gravity chair

Starting the search for a zero gravity camp chair. What is your favorite or ones I should be considering?

I bought 2 at big Lots for $30 each on sale which was a deal, that was over 4 years ago and one is still intact. I inadvertently cured my knee pain using the chair. I had severe knee pain but after I used the chair the pain went away. I found out from a physical therapist that blood was pooling around my arthritic knee and that elevating the knee above the heart flushed the pooling blood out of the knees and into the lymph glands in the groin and thus out of the body

Hmmm, I got off the subject. My neighbor bought a really good zero gravity chair from a hunting supply catalog called Cabela's , I think he paid less than $50 for it and it is better than the one I had. The next one I get I will order from Cabela's

I looked long and hard for zero gravity loungers when I had my Great West Van. The ones I found that could fold up tight and fit behind our sofa between the back doors was a Cabelas Timber Ridge model. It was there least expensive and I bought them for $26 on sale. Now in my Advanced RV I can fit almost any of them.



This is how I carry them.




Inside, I designed my own electrically operated zero gravity loungers/beds.

Nice setup in your rv! You have the most comfortable loungers being zero gravity, and you designed them.
Yes, plenty of room for them in your Sprinter.
Now you got me going. I'm going to order a chair from Cabelas.
Thanks for your response and the pictures!

I am certainly an outlier on this, but I have never cared for the zero gravity loungers. I seem to need to move around when I sit, not set into a relatively fixed position. A comfortable folding camp chair, foot stool or picnic table seat, for my feet and I am happy. Feet up, feet down, move around. DW on the other hand, can sit in the same position for hours, and at home has a Cabella's zero gravity lounger.

By the way, i watched a YouTube video made by Advanced RV a few months ago and was your rv featured? I remember the unique loungers and I remember that it was the most impressive class b I'd ever seen. Was that you and your wife?

I love them and have several, but alas do not carry them. The only place they would fit was in the stowaway, and I vowed not to carry that much junk around again.

Yes that video was made when we picked up our B.

Zero gravity loungers can double as just sitting in chairs as in the photo I posted. They are bulky however to carry around. I just found most Class Bs are uncomfortable sitting inside and there comes a time weeks on the road where you just wish you could relax as you did in your stick built home. The zero gravity loungers satisfied that somewhat. Then I wanted the same relaxation inside my B.

Your self designed zero gravity loungers in your Advanced RV look like the ultimate way to relax. I've always preferred the twin bed layout in a class b but yours is a step further. I had a Leisure Travel with an electric folding couch in the rear and I didn't like it. The Leisure Travel was very well made but they built a lot of their units with the folding couch.

It would be great if some of the class b manufacturers would follow suit and offer loungers similar to yours.
