Hey.... Thanks everyone for your posts and kind remarks. We feel very blessed indeed with both the coach and the Rubi.

I will post some pics of the interior with the recliners swapped in when we land in Texas tonight.

Here are some images showing the swap out of one sofa for two recliners.

I use a small table for my computer while sitting in the recliner. The recliner is BY FAR my preferred, most comfortable place to hang out (other than the BeautyRest Elite bed!) in the coach. My wife, on the other hand, prefers hanging out on the roadside sofa. She has a similar computer table for her MacBookPro as well.

These recliners are leather. One of them was purchased from an RV furnishings store. The other we ordered from a regular furniture store, that was a Best Chairs Furniture dealer. The recliners are:

BRAND: BEST CHAIRS
MODEL: PICOT
PRODUCT # 2NW79LV
BASE: Swivel, rocker, recliner
FABRIC: Leather and vinyl 41366 K-L Chocolate and 18366 K-V chocolate







Between the two front seats, the roadside sofa, and the two recliners, we can very comfortably seat six. Add in the two regular chairs at the table and it's eight. And with the two folding chairs added to the table, 10! Mostly, however, it's just the two of us with another couple or two at times.

I can't imagine how anyone could improve on such a beautiful rig, but yo have certainly done it. Hope you have many happy miles and memories.

DHart,
We spent 90 minutes in a 2012 Endeavor similar to yours. I sat there daydreaming of your mods and what we could do. The rig shows well.
AH, I'll just keep on dreaming.

Thumbs up

What a nice rig there.

I really like the two baths and a king bed.

I noticed your new SONY Tvs and your other upgrades.

The two recliners look great. How hard was it to get then in the door?

John, history, and Thomas... thanks for your comments. :-)

As for the recliners... the backs are easily removed from the recliners. With the backs removed, the recliners came into the coach with great ease. It was a little tight getting the sofa out, but it happened without any problems.

I guess manufacturers put two sofas in most coaches thinking that most people would want the two extra sleeping places, but for us... the seating and relaxing comfort is far more important than having a third bed.

I spend hours in one or the other of those two recliners every day and more often than not, nod off to a nap while reclining... and I love that! :-)

Beautiful Coach, sounds like you got it at a very reasonable price, were they reasonable on the coach you trader in?

Yes, we got a fair trade, for a trade. They liked our old coach.
