Hi All

My wife and I would like to replace the hide-a-bed sofa in the lounge of our 2004 gas Mountain Aire. (Hide-a-bed was Newmar custom install) The current sofa is a light ivory fabric and it's almost impossible to keep it looking decent. We want to change it to a light colored leather hide-a-bed. My question is how do I get the old sofa out and get the new one in? I've been told by a couple of people that the sofa will come apart and can be take out in pieces. Also, that the new one is brought into the coach in pieces and put together there. Is this true? Also, do you know if I could make an appointment at Newmar and have them change it out for me? I don't like the idea of having to take a window or the windshield out.

Thanks for your help.

Jack

I would take it apart just so you can get out the door more easy an not bang up the wood work.
You can call Newmar, its a good time of year, slow and smaller hour rate and they would know how to do the job. It should be able to go out the door. I have the leather coach and easy to keep clean. "007"

We did the same thing on our Kountry Star gas. Contacted Bradd and Hall in Elkhart, Indiana, and they scheduled a visit and had the couch there when we arrived. Did nice work, took the couch out in two pieces. They have a detailed web site.
