Chairs while on the road

Hi all!

What do you all do with your dining chairs while you're driving on the road? We've been laying them down on their side to prevent them from flopping around, but I fear long term that they're going to look like they've been flopped around anyway. They are beautiful cherry - I'd like to keep them that way! I was thinking we could wrap a bungee cord around them and secure it under the table - I don't know. Thought I'd seek some expert advice.

Thanks!

We just leave them in place at the table, they never move. The matching desk chair we put in the bedroom doorway since we can't get in there with the slides closed anyway. We take the litter box out of the shower and put it under the chair.

Yes, we turn them 180 so the backs are against the table, then bungee them to the cabinet. Certainly don't want them loose.

I know some who use bungees and pillow cases but I've run into three or four who really like the Chair Buddy by MorRyde. We've always had a dinette so I can't comment on anything first hand.

We use 3 inch wide Velcro that sticks to itself (not the sticky type). We wrap it around the right leg of one chair and the left leg of the other, above the supports, doing both sides, so the chairs are both connected to each other. We have never had them move and have no wear on the legs from the Velcro.

I loosely tie the legs together with a strap to stop movement should it occur. Up until we removed the couch, they were more or less confined to place but since we now have recliners there is more room for the forward chair to move about.

We don't do anything and they stay put. We have a chair side table that just sets on the slide carpet that doesn't move. If you don't have carpet I'm not sure what would be the best thing to do may be lay them on the bed.

Me too. We just slide them all the way under the table. We also have 2 folding chairs that we wrap in an old blanket and store under the bed. We've been using this technique for the past 130,000 miles (60,000 on this bus and 70,000 on the last one) and have never had a problem.

We cut down those stick on rubber pads on the bottom of the legs. That lasted for a short while, BUT, the sticky residue left behind after the pads came off have now held our chairs in place for the last 8000 miles or so. Plus, they don't leave any residue on the floor that we can see.

Wow, i am surprised by this

We all can drive very carefully, take corners slowly, etc.
But there are (or will be) times when you have a emergency manouver if someone pulls in front of you, or hard braking.

Seems like a big risk. When ours was new, I went over a pretty steep speed bump at an angle, and that was some rock & roll action, and a chair fell over. Tiffin chairs are a little top heavy.

Regards,

Dan

We used to loosely strap our chairs, but stopped doing that years ago, they don't move and we've never had a problem with them.
