L-shaped sofa question

My wife and I are considering a larger RV than our ACE 30.1 and love the Fleetwood Bounder 33C. Our only issue is the L shape sofa that is so firm it is not comfortable.

ARe the L shaped sofas in the Terra or other Fleetwood models softer?

They're all the same couch in the gassers. They won't be any more comfortable from one model to the other.

Do what others have done, chuck it & put a La-Z-Boy in there.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We have a 2015 Bounder 33C with the l shaped couch and love the firmness and feel of it. Now I have a bad back which might contribute to me liking the firmness of it. By the way the floorplan of the 33C is awesome for us!

funny We also like the flexsteel furniture in my bounder 35K. It was one of the features my GF liked most over the Tiffin, forrest river, allegro and Newmar. It was just more comfortable, oh btw she has a bad back as well

L-shaped sofa question

My wife and I are looking to move up to a larger Class A gasser than our current ACE 30.1. We have found several units with floor plans that we love but have not been happy with the comfort of any L-shaped sofas that we have tried.

Does anyone know of a 36 ft or less Class A with a soft/comfortable L-shaped sofa?

Dennis,
check back with us in a couple years,my wife and I both have back issues,and both loved the L-sofa 3 years ago,lately not so much. On our to-do list is a sofa similar to the one Sarah posted pics of,in our terra we have a built in sofa table/cabinet behind the couch,which my wife loves,so when the time comes,I hope all measurements work out.I don't know about everyone else, but we don't spend a lot of time watching tv,so it has not been a priority.Early morning and late eve we watch the news on the bedroom tv,rest of time cd or radio is always on.

We have a 15 Expedition and could not get comfortable on the L-couch to watch TV. I reluctantly took it out and added two recliners and it is great. I was reluctant because they look so nice, but the recliners made the home much better. YMMV

Mine is in pieces ready to be sold. It's on the classifieds on irv2. That is how much I like it.
Replacing it with a Eurorecliner and free standing dinette.

Ours is comfortable except for the one removable cushion that is taken out when you close it up. That cushion is like a rock. My sister just took delivery of her new 2016 Fleetwood Southwind this evening with an "L" shaped sofa. Sure enough, that one cushion is just like a rock. Both hers and ours are made by Flexsteel.

Our 35k sofa has been fine. We replaced the mattress though.
