Camping/Folding Furniture Camping furniture is a great alternative to always sitting on the ground. And not just for holidays. A folding chair, for example, makes watching a race all the more enjoyable. All folding furniture is lightweight and compact, so it can often be suitable for carrying on your motorbike. Another tip: When buying a camping chair or stool, think about strength. Steel is a bit heavier than aluminium but is a lot sturdier.
