RLS Reclining Chairs

Have 2019 24RLS. Assumed when I bought it that the chairs would be a wall hugging type. I was wrong. In order to recline, I need to slide these things in and out Which isnít easy - especially when you must be careful not to mark up the floors. Just looking to see what others are doing to deal with same situation. Thanks

I feel your pain, initially we liked the recliners but for all practical purposes moving and securing them is the proverbial "Monkey Mating with a Football" scenario.

It seems others have had good luck with these: https://www.recpro.com/recpro-charle...BoCm4gQAvD_BwE

We had the same issue. We replaced them with the Recpro chairs as described earlier. They aren't wall huggers either but they are much easier to move. Still have a little bit of problem with the base of the chairs sitting partly on the carpet and partly on the vinyl flooring but haven't gotten to test it due to Covid.

Not in your rig... We opted to go with La-z-boy recliners. Their delivery was directly to our RV storage lot and the delivery guys assembled and put them in our trailer.

We've been pushing and pulling ours out from the wall for 4 years.

We cannot justify spending a thousand dollars or more for rv furniture. We don't live in it full time.

They (Lippert) are crap anyway....peeling fake leather after 3 years of light use. Next owners can replace them.

We just deal with it. Bought covers for them.

Our Lippert started falling apart within months.

That plus the difficulty moving them around meant we replaced them with the RecPro.

The RecPro are lighter and a bit more comfortable. They are not perfect. But something that has more support would have been too big to easily move around and it was important to be able to turn them 180 degrees to watch nature outside the rear window.

RecPro

And I assume the RecPro is narrow enough to fit behind the retracted Slide?
Model/Name?
Thanks

We went with the recpro because they were "Significantly" easier to move, so we could both watch TV. Our floor plan 280RKS is hard to watch TV and be comfortable. The Recpro chairs are a back saver.

I am curious about the RecPro some of you have now.

How long have you had them, how much use do they get? Are they holding up better than the Lippert junk?

Anything we use has to swivel so the slide will go in.

Funny that they sell the RecPro RV Suprima Leather Fabric by the yard on their website.....makes you wonder.

The painted on coatings are thinner than an onion peel.

Thanks.

We went with Bestfurniture recliners. Had to order what we wanted. Took about 7 weeks or so.
Wall huggers in the style and material we wanted. Can't stand pleather as it's either cold or sticky in the heat. We went with a fabric cover. Had similar Best recliners in our previous 5th wheel and they held up up great. They make many different models to fit your space or your rear.
We replaced our Trifold sofa in our 25RDS with Best recliners. Easy to move around to watch TV. We're not full timers but we still do spend a day every now and them sitting in them if the weather outsides pouring.

We have the 24RKS which came with the sofa. We wanted recliners but did not want to deal with the various issues. Instead we purchased a dual recliner sofa from https://shop4seats.com/ and the quality seems very good. Ours is a wall hugger and only requires a small gap behind. Just another option.

We got these in the vinyl. Seem to be holding up better than the Lippert and fit fine for the slide in our unit.
