Is there a fight over who sits where? Who would say that one size chair fits all? When the seat
is too deep, or too short in the back, all the squirming, scooting, and leg propping won’t make for a comfortable
RV Outfitters offers a full line of MCD shades and products. We are one of the only distributors in the state of Oregon, and offer custom installation. We can make a retro fit look like it was installed at the factory. Check out the manufacturer's web site for more information and a list of their full line of products.
To ensure a proper fit, measure just as if a garment is going to be tailored. With a yardstick and the partner
seated on a firm seat, measure the individual’s back frame. Note the distance from the curve of the back of the
head to the seat, and use this for the measurement for the seat back. Next, place the yardstick down on the seat
beside the partner to measure from the back of the chair to the back of the knees. This will indicate how deep
the seat must be to sit comfortably and not have circulation cut off by a cushion that is too deep for the length
of the hip and thigh. Last, using the yardstick, measure from the back of the knee to the soles of the individual’s
feet. If the chair does not fit in this last measurement, the person will have to sit forward with no back support
or curve the spine to rest the shoulders and still have their feet rest on the floor!
My husband and I went through two recliners trying to get comfortable. Analyzing the problem, I realized that though
we weren’t many inches apart in height, our builds made twin recliners impossible. For example, when we sit on a sofa
or bench, my shoulders are slightly higher than his so that I can put my arm on top of his shoulders very comfortably.
When we stand, his long legs make him more than several inches taller than me. When I picked out chairs, if they were
deep enough in the seat, his feet touched the ground, but mine were several inches off the floor, and if my back was
comfortable, it hit him too high. Having him pick out a comfortable chair took several trips and sitting in dozens of
chairs to find the best combination for a perfect fit to his body.
Hubby found quickly that he preferred leather to any of the fabrics. It breathes in warm climates making it cool, while it warms in cooler climates. It allows the fabric of clothing to slide as the sitter adjusts, shifts, or stretches to relax. While I am comfortable in the rocker chair I moved to our RV, I’m having RV Outfitters upholster it in leather to match the interior of our RV. I’m sold on the comfort of soft leather but like more padding than a recliner offered. This chair is a fit that keeps me from having to push myself out with my arms when my feet can’t rest on the floor!
