Folding Rocking Chairs for Camping

Updated on August 19, 2014

Portable swinger chair for RV, camping and beach.

Tired of your regular camping chair? Lightweight materials make folding rocking chairs possible which are portable, comfortable and inexpensive.

If you like the sway of a rocker and make excursions by car or camp with a RV, a portable rocking chair that folds down and weighs about the same as a any other camp chair is what you need.

When I saw my first folding rocker I thought it was a prank joke. It looked exactly like a normal folding camping chair but it was standing on glides. I quickly learned however that these types of chairs are popular and have been around for quite some time!

Handy as an extra chair.

A folding rocker is also perfectly suitable for home use as a extra seat for guests or if you like to keep a tidy pool deck. Pull one out and use it, fold it down again and store it out of the way when finished.

Tree Swing Alternative

If keeping your feet on the ground isn't your thing, how about a floating chair-swing combo?

It may look complex, but getting in is just a matter of sitting down and putting your feet to rest in the foot harness.

My camping

When I was a kid we used to go camping every other weekend. Most of the time, we brought nothing more than a blanket with us - which is fine - but if these kinds of products had been available, I'm sure we would have gotten a few.

Sitting on the ground has a couple of disadvantages that these seats eliminate. The ground is often cold or not dry, bugs will come crawling, and let's face it: it gets uncomfortable after a while. Add to that the fact that the ones shown here let you rock back and forth while you doze in the shade and the deal is done!

What kind do you prefer?

What do you think about a seat that moves? - Would you take one on a RV trip?

      I'd like it if they made that cool Hoohobber rocking chair in grown-up size!
