I am looking at used 5th wheels online (shorter/lighter ones) and I note that many floor plans that interest me have the two "easy" chairs at the far (rear) end of the 5'er. I would wager that those chairs are firmly bolted to the floor.
For the last 8 yrs or so I have had to sleep in a recliner (not uncommon for us really old dudes, I am told) but I am wondering if there is room width-wise to utilize a pwr recliner in place of one of the existing recliners/easy chairs there at the end of the trailer (maybe by removing the "end table" that is usually installed between them.)
Also, not many recliners have a "zero wall clearance" feature.....I doubt that any of the power recliners do. I did notice that one "5'er for sale" ad showed one of those 2-piece Euro recliners with its ottoman sitting "side saddle" where the 2 chairs were originally. Looked clunky, but was perhaps the only way it would work for him.
My only RV experience was with a little 20ft Terry "stick trailer" I bought new in the 60's (for $3,500).......pulled it thousands of miles and it cost me the whole repair sum of one new tire
I do remember though that I had to secure things inside pretty well before I took off with it. So, whatcha think? Would it be feasible to use a recliner out away from the wall at night; scoot it back during the day, and then perhaps engineer a way to clamp it down before "heading out"? I just think I could make it work. Heck, maybe you RV folks do this sort of thing all the time........
