Electric L Shape sofa / bed

Got a Newmar and bought the Flexsteel L shape sofa, looks great, but Big mistake the most uncomfortable piece of furniture I ever owned like sitting on a park bench. I am now dismantling and installing two recliners. Very expensive mistake. FYI if you think you want make sure you sit in one for a while.

If that's the one behind the passenger seat, it may have a raised ledge up to 5" which might make other furniture choices difficult. Have you removed the "L" shaped sofa to check it out?

My wife is okay with ours, (she normally sits on it) but I think it's as hard as a rock. There is a joint at the bend that is like sitting on a metal bar. If we were to order a coach, the "L" shape would not make the cut.

Wife and I are both tall. We like firmer sofas that don't swallow us when we sit down - its not nearly as hard to get up. We like the L-sofas we have sat on, but have not sat on the joint. Don't know about that. We'd like to have one in our next coach.
