Curb side sofa swap???

Has anyone ever swapped the terribly uncomfortable street sofa /sleeper for a regular fabric one? How does it look with the elevated floor under it? Any suggestions? We dont really need the extra sleeping space...just want one that is comfortable and deeper...

Larry, if you measure the existing frame mounting to the size of your new sofa and it fits I see no problem with a swap.
You need to fasten the sofa to floor maybe using same bolts or use them to hold clamps to new frame. The only problem you may have you may want to remove legs from arm ends to get frame attached to floor.

That bug is still with us.

I had my Flexsteel "futon" style sofa replaced, the one that folds in half and is really lumpy, with a Flexsteel sleeper sofa that fits really nice. This model comes in different widths and with the legs removed fits perfectly on the elevated slide floor.

I feel more like I did before than I do now.
