Does anyone have any idea if they really need a base and why?
We do not have a plan for anyone to sit there while driving so I didnít know if that is the reason.
The only other reason I could dream of is the couch deeper than the slide out?
Options would be greatly appreciated
What couch are you talking about, the one on the Passenger Side or the one on the Driver Side. If it's the one on the passenger side, it's not a normal couch, but has a notch of 5" about 8" back from the front of the couch, to go over the slide out floor. The driver side is a normal frame couch. Both can be mounted if they are the correct couch to the floor, and seat belts can be attached as well.
