Ours has the jack knife type of couch, held down by 4 lag bolts which peridically need to be retightened. I have given serious thought to removing it, and replacing with another Recling chair and then putting in a little office area. We never use the couch unless watching a movie, and we hardly do that. But the BH said no to that idea, so I am soliciting ideas on how to anchor down the couch permanently so I don't have to worry about it coming lose. Several ideas have come to mind, but really need to run them by someone who knows how thick the slide is, because it's secured into it and it looks like a 2" raised pad area.
However, the couch can be unbolted, then laid out flat and then turned sideways and would go out any people door, it would take two people to move it out. We had one friend with a different coach just remove his and leave it outside with a free sign on it, it walked away the same day, then you can shop around for various brands of replacement made from any material you like.
