When we bought our 2008 Tiffin Allegro Open Road, it was missing the barrel chair located behind the passenger front seat. We knew we wanted a comfy, recliner-style chair in that spot, but we couldn’t find anything that we liked and that would fit. RV-specific furniture isn’t really our style, and we wanted something laid-back with the ability to kick our feet up.
After weeks of searching, we decided to order a replica Eames Lounge Chair with an ottoman to see if it would fit. We have always loved the style and comfort of the Eames Lounge Chair, and this gave us an excuse to order the budget-friendly replica. And guess what—it fits and it’s so comfy! Even with the slides in, the chair feels like it belongs and doesn’t stick out. The chair gently swivels yet stays in place while driving. The ottoman doubles as a small coffee table and footrest for the couch too. Our kids clamber to sit in it and even cuddle up next to each other, it’s pretty darn cute.
So if you’re trying to replace your RV barrel chair and like the modern style of an Eames Lounge Chair, definitely give the replica a shot. We purchased ours from Amazon, and even though the quality is no where near an authentic Eames Lounge Chair, it’s a reasonable price for an RV chair.
