Wall Hugging Recliners

Hi All,
We have a Jayco Melbourne 24L that has the full wall slide out. This model has a curved dinette with storage under both ends and converts into a bed if you're so inclined to punish somebody. On a scale of 1 to 10, we would give the seating a 2 for comfort and 3 for utility. It's time for a change.

Since it is only my wife and I, we opted for the Sprinter model without the overhead bunk (it has storage cabinets) and are now looking at converting the dinette into some comfortable recliners.
Has anybody have any recommendations for this conversion? I would guess we would loose the underneath storage and table but could see using pull out tables for dining or laptops. Any other ideas come to mind?
Thanks in advance.

Look at Rec Pro. They make RV seating that will fit the slide. It will even match the interior. I hated the Sofa in the slide and didnít want to pay the price of the factory option.

I replaced my Manual Recliners with Thomas Payne Seismic models. Loved then. I could only find online that they weighed 168 lbs.

I caution that you should Watch the Weight Difference of Anything you put on the Full Wall Slide, as it could cause stress on Mechanisms when Bouncing Down the Road as well a trying to retract or extend the slide. (This could have caused some issues for me, but I think my biggest problem poor repair the previous owner had done)

Anyway, know the weight before you buy.
