Ideas on securing furniture

In our new TT we have 2 swivel rockers, we pulled it home and when we arrived the chairs had managed to slide clear to the bed room in the front. I never thought about securing them, and the dealer didn't mention it either. No damage was done or anything, but at least now I know that I need to secure them somehow. I can think of several things I can do to secure them, but was just wondering what different ways every one else has come up with? Do you tie them down? Lay them down?

I'm surprised the TT didn't come with ways to secure them. Usually with swivel rockers, the base is a tube circle that gets locked, for travel, into a bracket that's bolted to the RV floor. Can you see any such brackets on the floor of your TT where the rockers sit?

I have also seen swivel rockers in other RV's that you turn back to back & they are tied together with tie-down straps that are anchored to a nearby wall to keep them from creeping away.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Both of my motorhomes use a bolt that goes through the floor (big washer ... about 3 in diameter underneath the floor) with a metal strap that holds the base in place ...

I use a dogleash to secure the base of the glider ottoman to the base of the glider rocker

Perhaps you could do something similiar with your two chairs
