It was a gorgeous day as the Montana Owners Club Rally got under way. We did our morning exercise and took care of a few things in the morning.
In the afternoon, we made the half hour drive east to Lambright Comfort Chairs.
Lambright is a small Amish business that builds sofas and recliners and specializes in RV furniture for full-time RVers. Some of our Rally attendees had purchased furniture there and had brought brochures in for others. Our friends Butch & Karen from RVs For Less also raved about them.
Earlier this summer, we were considering replacing our three La-Z-Boy Pinnacle recliners. They are starting to get cracks and tears in the seams and they are getting hard to keep clean. But we just couldn't pull the trigger on spending the money on new La-Z-Boys.
So, we thought we'd take a look at what Vernon Lambright had to offer.
The showroom is divided into their residential section and their RV section.
We sat in and tested every recliner. The have several models and they can make them in high-back versions or low-back versions. They have wall huggers, swivel recliners, rocker recliners, and they can add a power-recline option to most models.
After testing everything, we determined that we liked the small, low-back, Lazy Lounger wall-hugger with Ultraleather Brisa Fresco.
But we preferred the Oatstraw color which was on this pair of recliners.
The Oatstraw is more of a gray/brown that goes better with our carpet.
Vernon spent a lot of time with us. He patiently asked us questions and thoughtfully considered our answers.
After a couple of hours, we were convinced about the quality of the furniture and we came to understand the benefits of the Ultraleather, a polyurethane synthetic "leather" which is a trademarked product of Ultrafabrics.
It wasn't our intent to order recliners today, but we did. They are more expensive than the basic La-Z-Boys like we have, but I feel like there is a lot more value for the money.
We liked the non-traditional look of the Lazy Lounger and it was very comfortable.
We determined that the low-back was more comfortable for us short people. :)
I thought that the rounded arms were a little too high, but Vernon told us he was re-designing the arms to drop them an inch to an inch and a half.
We ended up ordering two low-back Lazy Loungers in the Ultraleather Brisa Fresco Oatstraw. And we ordered a low-back double recliner (loveseat) in the same style. They haven't yet introduced their double recliner in the Lazy Lounger, so we'll be getting the first one plus we'll be getting the first recliners in that style with the re-designed, lower arms.
We'll pick up the new chairs on October 10.
Before we left, Vernon agreed to offer our RV-Dreams readers a coupon for a small discount. So, if you come to northern Indiana and stop by Lambright Comfort Chairs, bring the following coupon for your discount. :)
The coupon is only good at the Lambright Comfort Chair Showroom in Topeka, Indiana.

We drove back to the Fairgrounds and then attended the opening Meet & Greet at the Montana Owners Club Rally at 6:00. We just wanted to introduce ourselves, remind them about tomorrow's seminar, and explain the rig weighing process for next week. We got to do all that, but they also invited to get something to eat - very nice of them.
Well, that was about it for today. We'll do our seminar tomorrow and continue to do a little catching up. :)
