I bought the 60" not the 68" now I'm building a night stand type storage area for the free space. The unit comes in one big box in three sections that just clip together. The backs of the chairs are separate and slide on, so no problem getting through a 24" door.

Just finished building the stand, have to sand it and stain it. Cup holder insert is on order. I put in 2 shelves books, umbrellas, some tools, etc.

Nice job. Are these recliners manual or electric recline? We are very interested, our couch is so uncomfortable, we have a small slide where couch is, anything we need to be aware of for installation? Read somewhere that sometimes couch is needed for proper movement of slide. Doesn't appear to be any wires that we can see under couch. These recliners look so comfortable.

They are manual chairs, don't know if they make electric but you can get heat and massage. No problem with the slides. They come in 3 pieces and the chair backs are off. They show specs for the 68" but not for the 60". I got the 60 because I wanted the chair closest to the front to be back enough to view the TV and also wanted a storage cabinet to store stuff. Here is their web site. De Leon Double Recliner

Is yours leather or fabric. It's hard to tell in the pics. The arms look like leather or vinyl. What is the color combination on yours?
Thanks.
I'm wanting to buy one, but the wife say she won't buy anything unless she's sat on it to see if it fits her. Cal is a long way from Texas just to sit on one to try it out...

I emailed the web site to see if they have a showroom and found out they do. We live about an hour away but feel it will be worth it to check out the chairs, they said they would even show us how they are made so we are going tomorrow.

Yea when you work on a flight deck on a carrier as a plane captain you get use to it.

We did the same in a previous Flagstaff trailer. Makes all the difference in the world as far as comfort.

We went to where they make these chairs, Alex showed us a deLeon dual recliners that were ready to ship, we got to sit in them, they are beautiful. They will send you all the color samples. We chose chocolate and went with just a single color in the soft leather so not to conflict with are captain chairs. We have a small MH and do not use table to save space. We were able to order burlwood trays for each chair that fit on arms so I can loose the TV trays. 68 inch fits for us but they will customize the length. These chairs do not make into a bed. The couch in our MH now makes into small bed that is pretty much useless, so uncomfortable, better off using air mattress on floor.
