Securing Rocker Chairs for Travel

We just picked up a new 27RLS last week and included with the chairs in the back was a partial cover for one and a strap. Now I have heard that some people stow the chairs back to back on either side of the small side table and use the cover on one back to prevent the chairs from rubbing and then secure the chairs together with the strap. I tried this and it doesn't work, in this position the widest part of the chair on the drivers slide is in the way of the slide. The only way to stow that chair is to turn it around so the back narrow part of the chair clears the slide. Thats fine because the slide holds it in position, but what do I do with the other one to keep it from bouncing around and rubbing on the table/walls? Any 26RLS or 27RLS owners out there that can enlighten me?

Welcome to you both! I think someone will be able to help you from their own experience.
On our rig, we figured out the best way after a few trips.

I just turn my rocker recliners to where they are facing each other, and then push them together. I put the end table on top of the couch.

Thanks for the link, sounds like there is no standard way to stow them.

I took a piece of hollow " foam noodle " and sliced it open, and use it to run around the edge of the little table to protect the backs of the chairs while they are turned sideways. Helps prevent rubbing damage to both table and chairs while in transit

My wife makes quilts so we have quilts everywhere and for every purpose. We throw a quilt over each rocker and that's it.

Excellent idea! I have a couple of pool noodles and some foam pipe insulation around here so I'll try that out.

Just got our 27RLS chairs sit in front of back door back to back strapped. Won't fit along side of the fixed table.
