Thanks a ton for the response. I'll ck out a Lazy Boy store in the Denver area. I am thinking power recliner(s), but I will still want to somehow support the back of the "his" recliner in the "bedtime" position each night; I ruined a (very old) "full up leather" Lane recliner in my sticks and bricks (bounced too hard trying to get comfortable with a very painful left shoulder.) It was so old, parts were not available. Later model recliners may be stronger, though.
I support the newer Lane recliner I have now (at home) with a "super duty" blanketed 2X6 "stand" that spans the back of the recliner (side to side) in the fully-lowered position.....no more problems; and steady as a rock. The "pleather" Lane I have now is anything but zero clearance ........ but it's real comfy. Seems like Lazy Boy is the "Gold Standard" ..... so many favorable reviews and only a small percentage of folks find problems.....mostly minor.
Safe travels............ Ed S.
