Bcf used to charge less, but they put it up to $24.99 about 12 months ago. It’s probably as cheap as any other place, less than swap and go with Bunnings $29.87

stumbled across these.
https://www.terraceboating.com.au/product/dometic-forte-180-armchair-ore/

I've been looking for a more upright chair for well over a year. We have chairs for "lounging in"... what I needed was an upright position chair that I could potentially work from, should I be working from the road while traveling. (more on that topic to come...) Also one that was *ahem* rated to a heavier weight.

These popped up in an email ad from another online seller, I did my research into the chairs found that the usual list price was around the $149-$159 mark... and my online seller had them for the discounted price of $109.

I did a further check and surprise... Google Shopping showed me Terrace Boating at Heatherbrae with them for $69.

One phone call later, confirmed stock and I *now* have two chairs for the price of one!!!

Ordered online Tuesday, in my hands Friday in Sydney.

Happy Dance time.

nice work on the bargain chairs.   I've tried some similar style chairs and they're pretty good for being more upright like you want.   

A mate has this one and while not a bargain it's probably the most comfortable camping chair I've ever sat in so if I ever see it on sale I'll be grabbing one.     Similarly upright and not 'loungy' but somehow really relaxing at the same time.   Packs up very small too.

It's a hell of a shame but places like this are struggling all around the world
A mate of mine picked up an iconic pup years ago for less than the land value
He got in a 25% partner that runs it and lives there, he takes nothing out or it wouldn't survive
He's also been buying up land around it for nicks
