Swap couch for recliners

Hi, I have a 09 36 QSH. We want to swap the passenger side couch for 2 recliners. Has anyone done this, and was it difficult? Thanks,

Dealer did it for us on an '08 Bus and I've had the recliners in and out of the '13 a time or two. You may have to disassemble the couch, but easily done. I see stuff like this going in and out in the Tiffin repair facility a lot.

Thanks, I was hoping it wasn't too difficult. I'm looking for the correct euro recliners

We did this in our Coachman, the back of the sofa just slipped up & off then could be easily removed from the coach. The hardest part was getting down in side the sofa frame with the bed pulled out & removing the bolts that held it in place & that wasn't that bad just a little awkward for a big guy.

One suggestion I have about the Euro recliners, if you can find ones that are comfortable & have the leg rest that comes out from under the seat it will save a good bit of space. We did not give this any thought when we bought ours & we have a separate ottoman that can get in the way sometimes.

Below is what I swapped the Eurostyle chair and sofa/sleeper for. We had the table already and the double recliner loveseat fit perfect. I can even recline full length and go right under the valances. The sofa sleeper unbolts from the floor and the back from the bottom real easy. The hard part was getting the bottom piece out being it was pretty heavy. The loveseat plus table will be lighter than what was in there.

I like my euros with ottoman. They simply flip upside down on the recliner for traveling. Superbly comfy!

We got it at a Roomstogo outlet which is only 10 minutes from our house. It was a floor model and we got it for 70% off. Their website Roger Loveseat - Loveseats shows a similar loveseat (non-recliners).

The only issue I can see is the mooch (DW) and the mooch's baby (Yorkie puppy) taking over my section. I may have to build a barrier.

Looks just like ours, we flip our ottoman over also for travel then I use a cargo strap to hold every thing in place. I do like our recliner, very comfortable, got ours at a Rooms To Go warehouse in Charlotte NC. Bought 2, but when we bought the new motor home, we removed the Flex Steel recliner and replaced with one of the Euro's. Then sold the Flex Steel & the other Euro recliner.

I have one word of wisdom: Measure carefully! We have two Euro recliners like CampDavin in place of the sofa. They are so close together that you can't turn them left or right more than a few inches. Very cozy! One is right up against the wall of the slide, the other is close to the cabinetry. There is no room for a table between them for a lamp or to sit a drink on. So measure very carefully before buying if you want 2 recliners.
