Lifting Chair

As I’ve gotten older (& creakier) it’s getting hard to get out of the chair by the door in my Dolphin. Has anyone “lifted” one?

If you want to replace the chair with a lifting model, I'm sure you can find one to fit the space. All lift chairs I've seen are 120v, so you'll have to power it through an inverter if you wish it to work when not on shore power or generator.

Sorry, maybe I wasn’t clear - all I want to do is figure out a way to build up the base to make it 4” or so higher. Sorry for the confusion.

Figure out how the chair is anchored to the floor. Build a platform of 2 x 4 and plywood, (cover in carpet or paint) and extend the anchors through the platform back to the chair. Not a difficult project, I'd just do it, not post about it, personally.
