Read Practical Motorhome's expert review of the Blacks Recliner – is it a touring essential?

Overview

For £30 this fully reclining chair needs to be good, but it’s a mixed bag. The footrest and fabric armrests help make the Blacks Recliner a decent place to sit, yet the quality of fabric and lack of back support padding is disappointing. A headrest is attached for full reclining, but this chair couldn’t truly be used as a multi-purpose seat due to its size and weight. When on tour, a seat has to be as comfortable at the table as it is on site and the Blacks Recliner just doesn’t meet every need.
