Pico Chairs

Something that I keep forgetting to share with you all is Camp Chairs . I notice in most of your gallery's that you all seem to have them . I just ordered 11 more of the Pico Folding chairs for our travels and have after over 35 years found these to be the most compact sturdiest usable chairs that we have ever owned , and I have had some of the supposedly better chair's available , including La Fuma Customs and Kermit Touring as well as numerous others . Type in
Pico Folding Chair's and you will be able to check them out . The only exception might be the width for large individual's

I use Slumberjack, having broken about 5 different camp chairs in short order:


They are big (I barely fit 2 in the van) but comfy and most importantly weight rating is 325 lbs!

I need to get a 3rd because the arm is broken on one of them and as insurance to when they stop making them... but 15 chairs? Wow. You'd need to get the Pico just so you don't have to get a large trailer to haul them in.

I've been wanting to get a couple of them pico chairs for a while. I usually just use my spare cooler but my girlfriend always insists on bringing her giant camping chair. (typical collapsing chair in a bag thing).

Obviously the benefits of having a chair that folds that small in the van go without saying.

When they're folded up, how 'flat' would you say they are? would they fit in the 3 or 4 inches of space between the upper bed panel and the penthouse top?

Also, found 'em at amazon for $99, which is considerably cheaper than I've been seeing.

Pico Chairs

Buji ,
The dimensions are 20" x 3.75" x 12" weight 10.5 pounds . If you check Camping World site they have the You Tube video posted . This chair was even written up in the Wall Street Journal and can be had from $99.95 Sportsmans Warehouse to $129.00 from other source's.
I purchased ours from Amazon as I have had great luck with the numerous transactions done with them .

Jage ,
That is not even funny !!!!!
My 19 year old is currently looking for an older Quigley or SportsMobile for restoration and I can feel it now as he is inherited my Anal approach to life . On the other hand if you are good lad I will look into getting you another SportsMobile .
