Sofa Replacement

We want to replace the older, uncomfortable Flexsteel jacknife sofa in our 1999 Bounder. We do not have slides and of course will have to deal with the 24" door opening. I have no intentions of disassembling the coach or windows to get the sofa in. Re-upholstery is not an option because everyone wants more to recover it than something new will cost. Because of space constraints, recliners will not work for us and we want to keep a sofa. Replacements are available from Flexsteel, but nothing we can get excited about, and of course we don't want to spend thousands on this. It does not have to be a sleeper but nothing else seems to be able to fit through the door. I'm sure others have tackled this and I am looking for suggestions on what you used and where you located it. Doing a web search brings up lots of options but also leaves lots of questions regarding quality, fabric and longevity. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Chuck

Thanks for the list but I have already looked at all of them. I do know how to use Google. Most have nothing of interest to offer, the downside of Google, and the others don't have enough information for me to make an informed decision, or even carry furniture. Which is why I have ask for others to provide some first hand information as to what they used and where they found it. Chuck

LazyBoy recliners are known for the ease of getting them into RVs because they come apart in two pieces. I've never looked at their sofas to see if any of them come apart but you might want to check them out. They also have chairs that open into a twin bed if that interests you. To get away from a big overstuffed sofa try looking at more modern designs - perhaps check out IKEA.

Surefit makes some wonderful, good-fitting slipcovers.

We considered the LazyBoys but really don't have the space for a recliner. I will look to see if they have a sofa. Mike, escape window is too small. Chuck

The other issue I have is that there is only 77 inches of width that I can use. Most regular sofas are well over 80 inches and it just won't work. Chuck

We just put a residential Flexsteel love seat with center arm rest in our MH. It has dual electric wall hugging recliners. The arm rest has cup holders. It was just about 77 inches long. All 3 backs pop off and it easily fit through our 27 inch door.

Do you have the model number and would it fit through our 24 inch door? Thanks. Chuck

We bought a love seat recliner from Shop4seats. Paid $230 extra for a quick build (2 week build). Couch wasn't ready on the day that I went to pick it up. I got half of my quick build money back & shop4seats paid to ship to me. The workmanship was awful. Took it back for repairs & they agreed to make us a new love seat. It was suppose to be done last Thursday & they would call to verify. Guess what no call & loveseat not finished as promised. Richard Valdez was going to make an arrangement to pick up loveseat today. I called this morning & nobody knows about the arrangement. Be aware they lie & don't follow through.

The new sofa is in. The decision was a LazyBoy recliner sofa. It's a bit larger the the Original jackknife but fits just fine. And man, is it comfortable. As it turns out, with the wall hugger model, there is plenty of room to recline. Thanks for everyones suggestions. Chuck

Rock wood;
Where did you get it at? I'm looking for that as well? Can they match your ultra leather as well? Regards

Sorry, we bought it from a local furniture company. But do a Google search for LazyBoy recliner sofas and you will get all kinds of info and options. You can also contact a local LazyBoy furniture dealer near you. Chuck
