A nice little portable gas grill. We like the Weber Q1200. Also a Good Sam membership is well worth the money. Discounts at Camping World, plus dump your tanks for free when there. Loren

after being out for a season, we bought a FireBowl ... propane fueled portable 'fire.'


for my $ the quick connect was a great ETI option - you have to fiddle with the propane endings to get low pressure fittings for whatever you hook to the ETI quick connect (things get technical - not a strength area of mine).

Jim's excellent "initial trailer outfitting" checklist is helpful. Post #3 in this thread. My own version is about post #34.

Initial Trailer Outfitting

I do. I've had lower back surgery. Most chairs are comfortable for about 5 minutes, then I feel like a hot poker is jabbing me in the back. Consequently, I like those old fashioned aluminum web chairs. They're hard to come by now, but I sit up straight enough my back doesn't hurt and the chairs are light enough to drag around the campground during rallys. AND, one paper towel and they're dry. Unlike canvas/fabric chairs that get wet when left out in the rain or because of dew.

Then there's a Lafuma lounger. Lots of knock-offs now for the zero gravity lounger. Comfortable enough to take a nap in

Donna, I totally agree on using a firm chair, as I just hate those cheap sling ones. Our Kermit chairs fit what you describe, with the exception that they are fabric. Ours are 4 years old now, still in great shape, and still fully supportive. Fairly light, compact and portable. Heck, we stow them in our canoe to take with us for luxurious backcountry use. Beats the heck outta sitting on the ground.

Not cheap, but worth it in my books.

That's not the chairs fault. I think we were near par, or maybe a bit better when I bought them.

Great chair though, top notch quality.
