Remodel, hard to find what to do for inside...

I searched threads. Looks like other people have same issues. Where to find furniture that will fit. We currently have two couches that face each other. We have a slide out so we have some room.

We want to replace one of our couches and get some sort of reclining furniture, either love seat or recliners.

We like to order things online since we have nothing local to us, and haven't found anything reasonable. The best prices on ebay or elsewhere seem to be from a vendor that many people have had bad dealings with.

Anybody have any other ideas? We are going to drive to town today to find some furniture stores and see what they might have. If they have something small enough.

When we decided to replace our sofa with recliners we knew they needed to be a little smaller than the large house type. We also knew we wanted to sit in them to see if they were comfortable. I don't know where you are located, but we found some recliners made by "BEST" furniture. They were a little smaller and would fit. We went to "Haverty's Furniture". They have lots of stores in Florida. We ordered 2 chairs and they are great. Very comfortable and are smaller so they fit find.

I would never order furniture online without being able to try it out. We looked at lots of chairs and there were many that just weren't comfortable, or didn't fit us.

Yeah, Flexsteel and Villa are going to be expensive - they are top-of-the-line pieces. You didn't mention what places you already shopped and found expensive, so hard to suggest alternative.

There is no reason not to use standard furniture in an RV. Try a La-Z-Boy Boy store or some such. And Google 'recliner' to find numerous models and sources, including amazon.com

Thanks Ya'll. We are out in the country in west Texas. We did find a love seat today at a furniture store that was smaller than most. May have been made by "Best". Now we need to get a foot rest for the captain chair for co-pilot seat.

We looked at Villa, and Flexsteel. I was trying to find someplace I could order flexsteel items, but that was not an easy task either, so I gave it up. We liked the item from discountvantruck, but too many negatives about them. We are 350 miles from Dallas, and 400 miles from Austin or San Antonio. So we would like to find a good online source or all RV stuff. We do buy some from camping world online.

I could have saved money by getting a custom built from Villa. Because we couldn't leave the local furniture store without new bedroom furniture, and new couch and table for the house. Oh well.

We replaced the OEM RV sofa bed with a Lazy Boy reclining love seat. It fits nicely in the space and moves away from the wall when reclining. The backs are removable on all Lazy Boy recliners so getting it in the coach door was easy.

We also replaced the OEM rocker/recliner with a nice leather euro-type chair with ottoman. We ordered that from discountleatherchair.com. Some assembly was required but we are very happy with the quality and comfort of that chair.

You couldn't find a source to order Flexsteel furniture? Just Google Flexsteel and there are many. Bradd & Hall is one of the major sources for RV items and they even have a "close-outs" section.

RV Furniture, Boat Furniture, Flexsteel, Flexsteel Furniture, Villa, Palliser, Lafer, Lambright, Leather Furniture, Bradd & Hall
Some others...
