Never knew how hard to find a used RV Sofa- Bed

Our Cruiser came without a Sofa bed. My wife winced at another 850.00 in the camping budget for a new Flexsteel so being a smart husband I just kept looking for a used one. To make the challenge even better the sofa needs to be 60"-64". Boy I need a hero to help me out on this. If you have any input Id be very grateful!

Not sure what u mean about a sofabed?

Most are air matress, and they suck.

I prefer a jacknife, my coach has 2, they pop out easy and require no additional setup.

We took out our sofa bed and replaced it with a reclining loveseat, love it!!! Most reclining loveseats are mounted on a bar, just unscrew from bar to bring in thru the door, then screw them back to the bar. We have a queen blow up mattress for company, it's much more comfortable than the sofa bed ever was. Best part was, we didn't have to buy a new loveseat, already had a white leather one in the home office of our stick house.

A few weeks ago I took the hide a bed out of our rig and replaced it with two La Z Boy recliners. Had to pretty much dissemble it to get it through the door. Since the fabric is pretty much a Newmar specific pattern I'm not even going to try and sell it so don't ask! Our six cats like the mattress to sleep on though!
Did get an air mattress for the grandson to sleep on though since he can't sleep stomach down on the chairs!

I always wondered how the sofa air mattress combo really worked out for sleeping.

thats a loaded thought
ours SUCKED at best.
then after it sprang leaks, was replaced under warranty then leaked again, we replaced the mattress with an OLDER air mattress we have had for what feel like eons
its thick vinyl and tough,

We are a couple hour drive from Elkhart Ind which we refer to Elkhart as the land of RV's since there seems to be a manufacturer's, dealers and RV's everywhere and I mean everywhere. We found an RV surplus supply that had a warehouse loaded with a whole lot of I think everything.

We purchased a pretty nice leather (imitation leather) jackknife discounted to 515.00 that matched the camper interior. Luann was happier with that than doing 850.00+ for a sofa-bed. So were ready to roll out on Friday finally with a couch to fill the hole in the Cruiser and go camp for the weekend...Right? Nope. Ever have plans to get away for the weekend and things at home keep popping up and rain on your camping parade?
