REI Kingdom Cot 3
Anything but your typical bare-bones cot, the fully padded REI Kingdom Cot 3 provides plush support with plenty of room to stretch out, relax and slumber until the sun comes up.

We fight for it because it is very RELAXING

Thanks for the reply. It really looks like a good one. I am looking for more of a chair with reclining capability as opposed to a lounger.

I also was looking for a recliner and came across a site that reviews the zero-gravity recliners.

http://zerogravitychairshq.com

After reading that site and several other online reviews of recliners, I decided that the best thing to do was to go to a sporting goods store and play Goldilocks. Some were too soft, some were too hard but none of them was just right. The section underneath my legs of the chairs was too long or too short on most of them, or they bent in a place different than where my knees bend. Besides comfort, I found that chairs like this differ in the way they close up. Some stay closed when you carry them, others act like a wild puppy that pulls you all sorts of ways when they spring open while you carry them. Some had flimsy nylon and some had weak-looking steel frames.

The lesson: Try them out in person before you buy. If you don't think that you could fall asleep in the chair, then it's not the one for you.

I really like this one. These recline (just lift arms and lean back), are extremely light and easy to move around, and fold very flat. They are very comfortable, without the "sling back" of many chairs that kills me after a few minutes. The mesh fabric lasts forever and is easy to dry. We've had a pair on the porch for years, and carry a 5 year old pair for camping. They cost about $100. They also come in XL, but normal is the size we have.

Unfortunately I don't see them for sale right now. Wayfair promises to have them in April, FWIW.

Where do you carry a chair like that (24" wide) in a class B? My Roadtrek aisle is ~21". A Zip Dee chair will lie flat in the aisle but it is not a recliner.

We don't carry them inside. We carry two zero-gravity chairs in the space behind our beds and the rear doors. It was deliberately designed that way.

Our Lafumas are not XL so they are 19.5" wide. We hang a pair on our ladder. They stack quite flat, I think about 6". Some people with rear beds seem to carry recliners in a slot by the back doors.

I would check Walmart. I was surprised to find that they had a really nice collection of quad chairs. We bought ones with a high back. We have two Coleman Rambler camp stools to prop our feet on. They make a nice “sit up” as well as a “lay back” chair.
