Recliner / Dinette Renovation?

Howdy folks, Crazy here.

I wonder if anyone has ever figured out a way to turn the dinette table/bed into a recliner? Wouldn't want to lose the table feature, so I don't know how that would work. Not possible me thinks.

The reason I ask is it would be nice for more than one person to sit and watch a movie comfortably in my coach. I have a galley/table slide on the driver's side with the jackknife sofa on the curb side. So one person can lay on the sofa and watch a movie, but the other has to sit at the table. Not too comfy for longer terms.

I know, but what the heck, thought I'd ask.

You might consider a narrow single post table in front of the sofa. The recliner in place of the old dinette. The single post has a plate in the floor that allows the post/table to be removed when not needed. Bill

I bought one of those portable recliners from Camping World and use it to watch TV when set up in a campground. Store it under the couch.

I have thoughts of taking the current couch, which is 52" out and then taking the dinette seat that butts up to the couch and putting it along the back wall creating an L, then using one of the free standing tables so it can be moved to allow seating.
Then I plan on either having two recliners or a 72" couch in place of the old one.

Our MH came with a free standing table that is bolted to the floor & 4 dining chairs, and a sofa on the drivers side & a swivel chair on the passenger side. First thing we did was remove 2 of the dining chairs & when parked for an extended time I would remove the passenger front seat & put it in the position of the swivel chair & the swivel chair in the fwd position. We did that for about 2 years. Then next we removed one more dining chair, the sofa, & the swivel chair. Then we bought 2 european recliners with ottomans, a wide file cabinet & a leather office chair. Had to move the table about 6" for the office chair to fit. This works great for us, however we only have room for 2 people in the queen bed unless someone sleeps on the floor or in a recliner.
