Thanks Joe, I wish I could take credit for the job but all I had was the idea. In hindsight, I wish I had done the same with my TV as you did. I gave up my couch for a dedicated computer desk. I really like the way you did yours behind the couch.

Thanks! We are really enjoying the new recliners with the TV directly across from us!

Agree, having the TV in front of you is kinda logical. Wonder why MH mfg. seem to think one should have to crane your neck to watch TV?
Our cabinet is just what we wanted (at the time) but regret giving up the couch.

Same here when we took out the rocking chair and hide a bed from the 5er. Bringing the Lazyboys was easy as the backs came off. Existing furniture went out without taking apart.

Easy out and in as the delivery company did the install.

Because they have morons designing them. Also when buying a chair look for a wall hugger recliner.

Any RV sofa be it a Jack-Knife or sofa-bed will fit through the door as that's how it came into the coach.

Here is my Lazy Boy recliner that I chose for my use. As stated previously the backs come off of ALL Lazy Boy recliners.

We had a dual recliner in the house that fit pretty good to replace the couch. I used 3/4 in ply to extend the slide floor. Will dress up the flooring later though.

Just remember that deceleration forces in an accident can be deadly. And the laws of motion don't change with the weight of objects. If you use household furniture in the RV, make sure it's bolted securely to the floor. Getting hit in the back by a 60-lb recliner dong 45 mph wouldn't be much fun.

Yup. Bolted and secured. Also I used the middle seat belts to secure the frame and there is a seat belt fed through for each chair seat. No guarantees but definitely not loose. And much more comfortable.

We bought a Lane 'Snuggler' for our now gone Titanium. The floor display unit had a removable back - the one we got didn't but at least it was bolted together and the fabric stapled to a wood panel. The hideabed being replaced must have been installed in pieces as it too needed to be disassembled. No biggie, but a 15 minute job became a 2 hour project.

Our new 5er came with a pair of really uncomfortable, extremely heavy clunks for recliners so they were replaced with a nice pair of La Z Boy wall huggers. The only caveat that I can think of is make sure that there is room for slides to retract without interference. Ours just clear but I take the backs off for another 3-4 inches and strap them down in case of a sudden stop. As far as cost - got 'em on sale for about a thousand dollars the pair.

Hi Richard! Glad to see you're back with us! That recliner looks comfy!

Is there a weight difference that my effect the slide?
We are entertaining the idea of changing out the sleep sofa and would need to hunt down a sofa with cup holder in black.
