    Probably off to the Shepton Mallet on Sunday, and something we are still looking to buy for the MH, are a couple of chairs.

    Are there any pro's and cons regarding "Rigid" chairs versus the ones that fold up and pack away in their own little napsacks?

    I realise the fold-ups are lighter and take up less room, however, I reckon I could fit two rigids in the latrine, and hold them in place with a couple of Bungees.

    Any advice from the Funsters would be gratefully received.:thumb:

    I suppose you have more chance of scraping and catching stuff with rigid chairs, as you move them about. Unless, you are happy to sit in the latrine.:roflmto:

    I also would appreciate thoughts on the concertina type chairs, I have a couple of Lafuma folding chairs and they are awkward to manouver and stack within my MH. I have seen a few different types of concertina ones but they don't appear to be very robust. :thumb:

    I wont say how heavy I am
    Surfice to say acording to the body mass index i should be 8ft 7"
    I think for all round useability the aluminium and fabric Directors chairs with little table attached fair the best, very rigid, light and versatile
    Two types seem to be available but at first glance look identical.
    The ones to go for have the back fabric and seat fabric joined by another piece of the same stuff at about where the base of your spine will be when seated
    those without that extra piece are a tad cheaper but offer less support

    We have two types of folding ones, but I think the only way to know is to sit on it and if it's comfy for you guess what that's the one.

    hope this helps a bit

    got to agree with Geo, we have both directors chairs (prefered) and 'big boy' fold outs...the legs, base and back fold to form a 'stick' for storage in a cylindical bag.

    ask any show-going funster about my directors "drinking" chair.....folding table at one side, seven pockets at the other...each one big enough for a bottle of lager :roflmto::thumb:

    Fold up ones seem to takeva lot of space

    Even in an rv we find the up Royale take up a lot of space.. The square type fold to halfs together seem to work better..and i am bigger than Geo... The other sort are hard to get out.

    But you need to try them...

    we have the directors chairs as well and that little table is handy for your drink when you all get together at a meet. They fold up and they are not heavy to carry around. I found the moon chairs too low for me when it came to getting up again out of them
