The other thought is that maybe your parents or loved one will want to sit and chat with like-minded sunbeds. The Dometic Camping Chair is for people sitting in your party who also like a sturdy, comfortable chair that puts those cheap ones to shame. It folds up easily, has a durable aluminum tube frame wrapped in heavy-duty fabric, and can hold up to 280 pounds, perfect for any old line buddies.
