Have 2016 Outlaw 37LS? Please help!

I won't note you with all the details, but we urgently need to know the following about the sofa in the 2016 Thor Outlaw 37LS. All these questions assume the sofa is in "sitting mode," not with the bed pulled out for "sleeping mode," and that the slide-out is pulled in for driving.
  • Are the armrests and/or the back cushions removable?
  • If so, what is the length and width of the seating area once the armrests and/or back cushions have been removed?
  • Is there any space between the end of the sofa and the wall while the RV is in driving mode (slide-outs pulled in)? If so, what is distance between edge of sofa sitting area and the wall?

If it helps, we're trying to figure out the maximum length and width for lying down on the sofa if someone were to remove the cushions and armrests, lie down with their head toward the dinette, and possibly even have their foot/toes hang off the edge (if there is space between the edge nearest the driver and the wall there).

Like I said, I won't bore you with details, but this is urgent and important for us, so your help is very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!

J.,
I believe the answers are:
*No, but the back-rest moves forward to make the bed
*If you unfold the seat pads, your butt is on the folded-up tri-fold sofa-sleeper rack between the armrests.
*The armrests are almost tight to the slide-wall.

BTW: The sofa-sleeper can easily be removed and replaced. It is a piece of furniture from a third party supplier just bolted to the slide floor. Could be replaced with any type seating...like a bunk (that would be about 75"-78" between the slide wall and the dinette back) futon, recliners, zero-gravity chair, etc.)



Best luck

Armrests are not removable, and they are tight to the side walls. Back cushions are removable to make a larger sleeping area, but you are limited by length of the sofa, which I believe is right at 5'. I can check, but you may be able to remove the recliner (just a single hand bracket that holds it in place) and still fold out the sofa when the slide is in.

Design of the sofa in the 2016 is different from the one shown in the photos Scarab added.

Thanks everyone. I thought it would be the same design as the 2017 sofas. My mistake.

Just checked the 2016 LS. You can NOT open the sofa bed when the slide is in. It hits the cabinets.
