Couch and love seat options.

Ok so I hate how uncomfortable the couch and loveseat
are. Have any of you replaced with real furniture? If so show me what you did. Where you bought it?
Thinking of driving up to a local furniture store and going for it. Chucking what's in here and replacing with the real deal.

Take your tape measure with you. Some MH doors are pretty narrow. We removed the horrible hide a bed couch and put in two euro recliners. Hated them after a while cause foot stools were in the way. Finally put in two wallaway electric recliners. Much better. Had a heck of a time getting them thru the door though. Any bigger would have to take out dinning room window to get in.

I looked around until I found a couch from another RV that was comfortable and would fit. It took a while. It was $200. Did not like the comfort of my seats as well. The new ones are from a honda odyssey. I did have a residential couch for a short time, I did not like it.

We bought a Lazy-Boy love seat off Craigs List and gave away the uncomfortable fold out couch.. Love it. I had already replaced the factory recliner with a Lazy Boy, so we are both comfortable now. The thing about Lazy boy, the back comes off, so it will fit through the door.

Check out this thread

We have no love for RV furniture, so we went this route.

If you're looking to get comfortable furniture

We took out the booth and couch and replaced the couch with wall hugger Lazy Boy recliners. I moved the table between the front seats.

Rv couches are terrible. We removed ours. Bought 2 $1600. Rocker swivel recliners. Leather. What a difference. Our dinette seats are terrible. Added a 3 inch foam piece. That fixed it. Every new model. seats are a disgrace. Even in the 4-500 range. Winnebago

About 2 years ago we removed the FlexSteel Extend-a-Lounge and installed a La-z-boy. Best $$ we have spent on our RV. Hardest part was getting the old sofa OUT; getting the new La-z-boy in was a breeze since the backs come off.

I removed then disassembled my stupid rusting hideabed couch that NOBODY could sleep on two nights in a row. Then had a day bed recovered and made it so I had storage underneath, what a EUREKA moment!!! I can actually lay on this thing (even fall asleep) and have tons of extra storage in my rig. I actually removed one of the settee seats so this could be installed but I'm 6'4" and 240lbs... couldn't sit at the dining table if I wanted to!! All this for $400 + upholstery materials.

I replaced the couch with my Recliner out of my House. I had enough room to add a computer desk that I modified and made to fit my space. I can set in my recliner and use my computer. Bottom line, my wife is happier with this area and that is the real deal. I purchased the small desk from Camping World and added a removable top to fully utilize the space. If you have any interest, I will try to send you a picture.
