I have removed the sleeper sofa from my coach. And put it back in again. Why do you ask?

Most RV furniture can be dismantled so it fits through the door, unlike home furniture. Should come apart is several pieces, bed mechanism, back rest and sides.

I am planning to remove mine and wondered if there was a video or instructions on how best to do it.

I removed mine and it was very easy. There are 4-6 bolts on the floor and 3-4 on each arm. The arms come off easily and couch comes out. Really easy simple job. YouTube should have videos but it wasnít hard.

1) I disassembled the sleeper couch in our coach into these pieces:
a) front
b) arms
c) rear
d) mechanism and frame

2) Each of these fit out the door without problems. It's easier to carry the mechanism and frame with two people- not because it's heavy, but because its awkward.

3) You may want to use a strap to secure the mechanism in the frame, so the mechanism does not try to open when carrying.

4) I used a socket set for most of the disassembly work.

5) As you take the couch apart, record the order in which you do the work. Also, mark bolts/screws and where they go, so you can put them back in their correct places. Pay particular attention to see if one or more fasteners are a different size than the others; for instance, two of three bolts on an assembly are one length, and the third a different length. I took to bagging fasteners for each assembly, such as the couch arms, and labeling the bags.

6) This is very important: If you unbolt the couch from the floor, and the floor is carpeted, there is a very real chance you will not be able to find the original holes when the time comes to bolt the couch down again. If that should happen, all kinds of unhappy compromises/results can ensue. So, find a way of marking/measuring/divining/whatever it takes so that you better your chances of using the original holes.

Those are all the hints and helps I can think of at the moment.

You can move almost an entire houseful of furniture and all your belongings after removing the sofa and the dinette. Been there and done that with the Allegro 31IA.

I have an experience in removing my old sofa from my RV, a 2008 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 32la and replaced it with a new one. The first task is to remove the arms and heel plate before beginning to disconnect the sofa from the RV floor. Then the bed of the sofa is folded out and bent the sofa headrest in a forwarding direction. Also, ensure to remove the seat belts from the floor. There are a lot of bolts to loosen in order to remove arms from wood. Then it is easy to remove the sofa from the RV after separating wood pieces from the bed mechanism. I have given the sofa to furniture removal service because of the concern about nature for the proper disposal.
