Sofa with Recliners?

Do any models have an option for a sofa with recliners built in?

Not that I'm aware of. What others have done is called Villa to have an ottoman custom made to match your sofa fabric (leather), that can then serve as a footrest and storage inside.

Order sheets for the Essex and King Aire models show sofas with built in footrests, but I doubt they recline as a traditional recliner. You can see pictures on the website of them. As nice as these would be to have, I suspect they would not be allowed to be ordered as specials for lower models to keep product distinction.

There is a company located about 30 miles east of Nappanee called Lambright Comfort Chairs. They will install in your coach a replacement sofa with built-in recliners at both ends, either mechanical or 120v ac electric. Lambright is able to match your original fabric. When I got an estimate in August the cost was just under $2k for manual, and just over $2k for electric.

But if you want that Lambright recliner sofa, you will have to buy it twice, as Newmar will not sell you a coach without the sofa installed, even if it's a factory pick-up. (at least they wouldn't for me)

I replaced the sofa/bed in my Tiffin with a loveseat/console with recliners from Lazyboy. The odds are whatever we get in a few years I would do the same thing. I was hoping that some of the upper class motorhome options from Newmar may have this instead. I guess I would have to get the basic sofa and then replace it.

Maybe an ottoman would work and cost less?

The Ventana LE 4044 has the sofa and the recliner. I would steal the recliner and the DW will have to deal with the sofa. But I would have to see how good or bad the recliner is. I am 6' tall and some recliners are to short. The European recliner that came with my 31SA got replaced real quick. I have a bad back and a recliner is the only thing that I can sit in for long periods.

I have one in the J-lounge........never use it as the back is so low(Sofa height) and then it even gets lower in the back as you recline it.......would work for a small person I suppose.
I would think it would have to be one with the "Wall Hugger" design to actually recline.

I saw a unique reclining sofa in an Ultimate Freedom (03) - as it reclined the footrests could be used as footrests or be used as small tables to eat from. It was electric and massaging.

Here is a recliner couch on a 2017 King Aire 4519 for sale at NIRV. Alas the footrest looks warped?! The vinyl slide floor trim looks warped too.

I don't think that is a recliner couch, just a couch with a footrest. That is what came with my coach, and we never use the footrests because without a reclining seatback, the footrests are very uncomfortable and therefore useless.
