Removing JackKnife Couch

I am about to remove my jackknife couch from my 2003 Fleetwood Storm for reupolistering. I want to remove the couch without opening my slide if - at all possible. I have attached a diagram of my floorplan to give atleast a vague idea of my dimensions. Has anyone done this? And, is this possible or will I have to open the slide?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

On my 31ft class C winnabago I had to open the slide to get it out. Replaced with 2 swival rockers. Liked it much better.

I removed my jackknife couch in my storm just by opening it up and hauling it out the door. My MH doesn't have a slide but the floor plan looks like yours.

Removing Couch

Thanks for the advice. Hopefully this will be a relatively easy removal. I also have to reinstall it after it's been reupolstered. Once that is out, I am contemplating removing the carpet and going with some other material (not sure yet as to what will work best).

Planning on removing the jackknife couch and building in an entertainment center in my Discovery. This subject has surfaced elsewhere - don't anticipate any major obstacles.

Hey Bob,

Fleetwood usually bolts the couch through the floor with about 4 sets of nuts and bolts. You will most likely want to slide out for ease of access to the nut and washers below.
