Removing L Shape Couch

Any hints, tricks or advice on removing an L Shaped Couch from a Discovery 40D? Has anyone done a video of the removal?

I have one, it's held down with lag screws and bolted together. Shouldn't be any big issue to break it down and remove.

We removed ours on the second day of ownership. Lefty Lucy and you're done. I think it took about 45 minutes to remove the L sofa. It would have been faster but I didn't have my SAE socket set, I had to use an open end wrench. Once the sofa was separated into 3 pieces it easily when out the door. Getting rid of the L sofa was the smartest thing we have done so far, though the Sleep Number bed is a close second!

I removed .ine today.

8 lag screws.

3 nuts to seperate the J or L
End piece into two piece's.

The grandchildren hauled it out the door.

A 30 minute job at the most.

Now the kids have a couch, sleeper in the playroom to boot.

We also took ours out. Getting it apart and out was the easy part.

We built cabinets next to the sink as a coffee station. Then bought a new residential sleeper sofa that had removable seat and back cushions. Removed the sleeper hardware to reduce the weight until it was in the MH. I had 4 guys help getting it through the door! It was a very tight fit!
