I would love to replace the sofa in my RV with a recliner, but space is limited. The sofa is very uncomfortable that came with the NorthTrail.

Our FlexSteel sofa is like perching on a board...no way to get comfy at all. I really want to remove it and put either 2 recliners or a reclining loveseat in its place. I'm just having a difficult time "visualizing" the removal of the sofa.

We removed the sofa, swivel chair, and 3 of the 4 dinette table chairs. Added 2 European recliners with ottomans, a leather desk chair at the table, a book case, and a filing cabinet. If I were to do it again I would be sure to get the recliners with the ottoman that folds up under the chair. However now the DW wants a sofa put back in. Not sure what we are going to do, possible upgrade the Coachman to a Winnie Journey.

One thing about my DW is when she was living full time in our sticks & bricks, she would rearrange the furniture every 6 months, she can't do that in the motor home and I think it drives her a little crazy.

I knew that was doing and well deserved. Sorry but I am at work and I don't have those photos on my tablet. You'll just have to use your imagination!!!

Lambright makes chairs and loveseats for RV's.
You can see a selections at Bradd and Hall . I bought ours from the Lambright factory showroom at a good discount.
Another good choice is a La-Z-Boy Harbor-Town.
Our first chair was a Euro. It was comfortable. But ottoman always seemed to be in the way.
Both of these recliners fit well in the space we have in RV's.
Good luck taking out a sofa. Depending how they were installed. There may not be much left after removal. Ours ended in the weekly trash pickup.

We had thought of doing this replacement as well but after taking a couple of measurements, it didn't seem it would work very well. First the couch is 72" wide. Most recliners are 36" wide and that's just putting them side by side. We wanted ours at an angle from each other with maybe just a small table between but it just won't work. The other problem is even with a wallhugger you need at least to keep them 4" from the wall behind the chair. Don't have that room either without having the chairs now sticking further into the room. I suppose we could get ride of the dinette table to make more room but we use it mostly for our computer station and the extra size of the station allows for the computer and printer all in one location. We do have one euro recliner with an autimun and by turning the driver and passenger sets around we just live with that. Now it's time to watch some tv and have some .

I replaced my worn out couch with another couch. I need the couch for a bed for guest. They probably wouldn't like to sleep in a recliner all night.

We have taken very careful measurements and find that two La-Z-Boys will fit in our space fine. Our existing sofa is the FlexSteel "extend-a-lounge" and it's pretty big, especially with the extension out....



We will likely have to remove those window trim things (lambriquins??) in consideration of the "distance from wall" measurement. The current sofa is about 5" from the wall to allow for the bed fold-out.

That sofa looks comfy. We have a couple of those inflatable mattress things that we could carry for guests, but truthfully we never have overnighters. If one of our grandkids is with us, the dinette converts to a bed. My prime concern is comfort for the two of us, lol. (And the Flex "STEEL" lives up to its name.)
