Bolting Furniture to Slide Floor??

We have removed the uncomfortable hide a bed sofa from our motorhome slide and will install a reclining loveseat. Does anyone have any advise how to bolt the loveseat to the slide floor? The old sofa was just screwed thru the carpet into the slide wood base. Should we do the same? Seems like I read where there are clips for this purpose???? Where do you buy them??

I would have confidence in the old mounting method_ IF, the loveseat did not have to be moved out for the full-recline position. If it does have to be moved way from the wall to fully recline, I would install an "eye" screw in the floor at each end and use a simple polyester strap like the one used to secure reclining chairs that do require moving in order to use them.

It depends a lot on how much clearance there is between the underside of the slide floor and the floor of the RV when the slide moves in and out. The ones I've seen have very little clearance. You might have to fabricate some clips that can be screwed into the plywood floor to secure the recliner. If you do secure the recliner, be sure to get a recliner that will clear the wall when reclined.
