The Flexsteel Magic Bed is in the form of the "jack knife" bed where one's head is oriented either toward the front of the coach or to the rear and this is the one I want.Most sofa beds position the sleeper transversly(across the coach) and this is the one I do not want! The one I need is 72 inches long MAXIMUM and covered with cloth upholstry fabric rather than the more common cream-colored plastic material.Anyone?

Went to your Blog. Very nice job on the floor. We have a table & 4 independant chairs from the factory for our dinett. They used nylon webbing straps & a hook for & aft in the wall to secure when traveling. You may consider this but with heavier straps than the 1" they used in ours. It has clasps on each end so the strap can be removed when not traveling.

allure flooring

i looked at all your pictures and post and instructions on the allure flooring, we want to remove our sofa and put in recliners and also do the flooring. we must live close to you, we live in arlington and many of the parks are within a sort distance of us. i have been going to kolomoki mounds since i was a child. would love to see your motorhome.

We found two smaller recliners that are 32" w, 34" deep, and 37" high, at Haverty's Furniture in Fl. They are made by "Best" furniture. They came in two pieces and easily fit in through the RV door. Other furniture stores sell them as well, but the ones we got were made to Haverty's specs and had heavier fabric and thicker padding.

There is a sign by our our old sofa that said not to be used when traveling. I assumed it was because the people would not have been facing forward and could have caused greater injuries in a collision.

We need our recliners to be able to move a little.

JeeperJohn... I can't find the brand name of the chairs. We purchased them from American Furniture in Colorado. They are a large furniture outlet in the Denver/Colorado Springs/Pueblo areas. Maybe you can Google them and find the chairs. There are a lot of other manufacturers who make similar chairs. Brad & Hall offers Flexsteel chairs which are very similar, although a bit more expensive. www.braddanhall.com As far as comfort I really like them, however my wife doesn't so I guess it's just a personal thing.

FATMANAR... We purchased the dining table chairs at a furniture outlet recommended by Beaudry RV in Tucson. When we bought the coach from them it had a booth/dinette which we didn't like. We had them remove the booth seats as part of the deal. We picked out the chairs and they paid for them, but we couldn't find a table. When we got back to Colorado I found an unfinished furniture supplier who had the table I liked and I stained and finished it too match the decor. As it were, the table I found is almost exactly like the one Fleetwood puts in at the factory if you get that option. But if you find one of your own it'll be a lot cheaper.

Elkhartjim... We advertised our large recliner chair on Craigslist last summer and a lady wanted it. When she came over to pick up the chair she saw the matching couch and wanted it also. She didn't care that it was out of an RV, meaning it didn't have a closed back and needed some type of feet made for it.

Bob, appreciate the info on the chairs. Took a look at the American Furniture Gallery site but did not find those exact chairs. We have found the Palliser models that look very nice and also found out that some Haverty's stores carry them. We are going next week (after Bike Week) to look at some at Haverty's in Daytona. Even if they don't have our exact color, will be nice to sit in one before we order on line if need be. Thanks again for your help and hope everyone keeps posting their upgrades.

We have the same recliners, but don't use the foot rests. You can always find somewhere to rest your feet. Our only issue to date is the need for a narrow table to go between them.

I found this on the web. Quite interesting and maybe would work in an RV.

Try this place, I bought this table to use between two recliners. The quality is amazing and the prices, there so cheap! No kidding, this is a very high quality company, we were very surprised at the quality of the wood, craftsmanship and finish.

That little table is great, Jim. I've seen solid wood ones, similar but without the slide-top, in local Amish stores for twice that price. Thanks for the info.
