Driver and passenger chairs

Just curious do people utilize the front coach seats as recliners ? Or is there a worry of wearing them out I mean back support etc. Thinking which way to go for seating in 4369 sofa, or sofas or fireplace etc. If the driver seat will last. This will be used my bad back loved the driver seat. Thanks safe travels to all

We have a 2002 4090. Took out the couch and put in two La Z Boy recliners. We like the recliners far better.
We looked at the 4369 and 4372 and we'd still go with the recliners. Now the DW likes the 4375. Might go with that and have recliner/rockers instead of the short couch on the passenger side.

We too have a 2002 4090. PO took out the couch, and we put in two Lazy Boys.

Our driver's seat back reclines, but there's no footrest. On the road DW (when not driving) uses the front pax seat in full recliner mode. I can't-- legs too long.

When parked long term we turn the front seats around, and they are fully used when we have guests. So we have four individual nice comfy armchairs, three of which fully recline.

When the grand son goes with us he uses an inflatable bed on the floor although the last time out one of the cats put a claw through it, need to get it fixed before school is out next spring.

We did the same with our couch and removed the overhead CRT, made it into a cabinet and had a new cabinet made across from the recliners with a 32" LED TV c/w lift that recesses into the cabinet. No more craning ones neck to watch TV.

I would post pics but since the new Apple 8.0 upgrade, my IPad has gone berserk.
If you have not done the 8.0 upgrade, don't. Your life will be better.

Hey, thanks Les. I will never figure out why they have to fix things that aren't broken.

Because the geniuses at Apple don't respond to market demands. They sit around all day thinking great thoughts, and saying "Whoa! Wouldn't it be sweet if........."

Then the Apple True Believers all rush out to buy the new features they didn't ask for and don't need, and they all exclaim "Whoa! Sweet!"

;-)

We found the recliners to be really comfy so that's what we have on our order. The L shaped couch is small and uncomfortable especially the pull out section. Also we didn't care for the fake fireplace and although it's a heat source, felt it unnecessary with the addition of the heated floor. JMO

Sargee,

I use the drivers seat turned around towards our TV daily, I love that I can tilt back, use the electric leg rest, the works. Been doing it for over 6 months. So far the seats have held up well.
