Morning. Not sure I can help. Any suggestions I thought of would not support your weight. However a cushion my be your best answer. With leg issues I suggest that you don't sit for long periods. Do some walking. Not far, even 10 minutes and use a different style chair when you return.

I have the same problem and find these help, especially the short walk.

The dog like the walk as well. Lol

Look for big man's chairs. The ones I have in my camper are rated for 350 pounds. I am tall and large and they fit me well.

I like these Timber Ridge chairs from Costco. They scissor fold, have a pop up table and are quite sturdy.

Check out the Lafuma zero gravity chair, pricey, but very comfortable and sturdy

I got one of these from BassPro on line, on sale for $85. I ordered 2 but only got the last one in inventory.

Used it last week on our Great Smokey trip. Extremely comfortable. Unfortunately it is pretty big, even folded up and heavy. There is only one compartment in our rig that will hold it so glad they didn't have 2.

I'm also a big dude and got a chair like this from Academy Sports and I LOVE it!
Easy to set up and fold, lightweight and very comfy!

I've had two like this from Cabelas for about 7 years now. As you said, a little big even folded up. My previous motohome didn't have a bin large enough, but I was able to put them in the back of the Jeep we towed. My current rig fits them just fine stacked on one of the slide trays. Love them...can sit for hours in them or even sleep.

Was part of a hunting lease and once I brought those chairs, all the other guys went out and bought their own after sitting in them. Good thing since everytime I walked in the door someone else was sitting in my chair!

I find this chair much more comfortable and they also fold up much smaller and we are able to fit 4 of these folded in the same space as 2 of the first ones.

They handle my 250lbs very comfortably and my 325lb friend as well.

As much as everyone likes to hate Camping World, I bough one of these online for $25 last summer. We liked it so much, we bought 3 more this year when I found them on sale for $25 again. Very comfortable and does not cut into the back of your legs
