These Retro Lawn Chairs Are a Relic From the Golden Age of Airstream Camping

Most comfortable with a cold beer in hand.


Vintage outdoor furniture — especially that in good condition — is hard to come by due to historically poor quality. The oft-overlooked outlier, however, is Zip Dee. Specializing in hard-wearing, American-made RV awnings since 1967, Zip Dee began applying its weatherproof, fade-resistant acrylic fabric to folding chairs to provide roadtrippers with seating to match their vehicle.

While a new set of Zip Dee chairs is priced at $339, vintage models — like this brown and mustard-striped duo — sell for much less. With chrome-plated steel frames and natural oak armrests, the chairs show minimal signs of wear; though given that Zip Dee’s fabric remains water-resistant for 20 years, these 1970s seats might need a touch-up.
