Moving Furniture in/out

I've been studying the online offerings for a new recliner for our 08 Monaco Cayman.

Is it possible to carry these chairs in and out through our entry door, or does the windshield need to be removed every time?

Any thoughts on good sources for furniture or new covers?

Some recliners have a back that is able to be taken off, this helped me get mine though the door on my rig!

Lazy boys are famous for this.

I sure wouldn't R&R the windshield just to replace a chair. There has to be a better method.

I have an 07 Neptune with the recliner however I have never taken it out. I would think you could hold the chair sideways with someone holding the seat back and someone holding the base and twist it out the door. As the person holding the back will worm towards the back of the coach that allows the base holder to come out. Again, I haven't done this with mine, just use to deliver furniture in college and thats how we got into tight areas.

Hi, I have an 07 40skq and have removed the leather sofa, love seat, dinette counter and table and also brought in 2 new LB recliners all without any problems. If you have a "American Furniture Warehouse" near your location it's worth a look! The prices are great and they have a very good selection of name brand furniture. Take DW shopping, Good Luck!

Thanks everyone!

I took out my old "made in Canada" tape measure (It belonged to an old uncle- probably more than 50 years old?) and did some checking. I'm sure our door is wide enough to easily do this job.

don't take out the windshield. When we need to replace a large refrigerator we will remove a large side window. It is easy to do. You can do it with a buddy and not worry about paying for a front windshield that cracked in the removal. Hope this helps.
