My delemma about replacing the factory sofa bed is that, other than being a little grubby and looking a little......old, it's not worn out. Its really high quality and comfortable.

I would hate to spend the money to replace if with something new, and find it to be less comfortable. I have shopped around and tried new sofa beds costing up to $4000 and my impression is always "yeah, that's ok, but it's not better than what we have now."
We considered reupholstering. The cost was about half the price of a new sofa, for a quality fabric or ultra leather, sewn by Flexsteel, and it was recommended that we replace the cushions as well. This would bring the cost up to nearly the price of a new sofa. The sofa was lightly used but still 15 years old and there were other elements we didn’t like about the sofa.

The replacement is a Flexsteel Boomer in ultra leather with a pull out drawer underneath. Cost for the sofa/ez-bed, drawer and shipping, with a 10% discount was ~$2600. I posted a photo on your “Old coach” thread. The arm rests are removable which creates a full length, flat bed that is 75” long. The arm rests are an ideal height for laid back TV viewing and we prefer the simple, straight, flat lines over the curves on the original.
