Well, I pulled out the sofa and sold it today. A few observations on the removal. It was really simple once I started taking it apart. Every part of the sofa unbolted and came off. The foot rest, both arms, the back, and lastly the seat and frame came out as one piece. I couldn't believe how light each of the pieces were. The arms were molded plastic with metal bolt plates inserted. The wiring unplugged, and the motor that actually turned the rods that raised and lowered the back rest was tiny!

The whole couch couldn't have weighed 50 pounds. An air rachet and a few bits and the whole thing was in the driveway in 30 minutes. I had removed the passenger seat thinking that I would need to in order to get it out of the door, but it wasn't necessary. With the seat back removed the seat bottom and frame were carried out easily.

The rig does look a little funny now with that beg empty space, but the new leather Euro Recliners will be ready in a week. We are looking forward to the versatility of turning, reclining, and swiviling each chair as we like. I maintained the floor mounted seat belts for the new chairs if they were ever necessary.

The one issue that the new recliners will make possible is that if we wind up in a spot with a great view out of the curb side window like last weekend at a beach with a sea wall we were parked parallel to, we can turn the recliners to get the view out the picture window while we have the morning coffee.

I will post a few pics of the new recliners when we get them in.

Depressing to hear how light the sofa is.

We just went through the same process as SargeW. We pulled our Rest Easy out to have it recovered from cloth into leather. I was surprised how easy the job was, and, I too, removed the passenger seat first because I thought the Rest Easy came out in bigger pieces. The new upholstery job came out great--wife loves it, so there. Ours is in the street-side slideout, and we sometimes use the bed position in a pinch.

Enjoy your new recliners, SargeW.
