Suggestions Replacing Sofa With Recliners

Just bought our first used RV. Switching out Jackknife for loveseat recliners. I've seen so many pealing even the ones that have been replaced after only a couple of years of partial usage. Any thoughts? Recommendations?

Don't buy FAX Leather, Patchwork leather, Bonded Leather etc

Buy Fabric covering (Real leather is $$$$$)

Buy some Lazy Boy Wall Away recliners. They're good quality and you can pick a matching material.

Many of the peeling chairs were made by Flexsteel. They peeled because the RV Manufacturer spec'd out the cheapest fabric.

Go down to you local better quality furniture stores and actually look and sit in some recliners. IMO you need to spend $1000 each to get decent quality.
Stay away from Ashleys type stores. They have cheap junk in nice blinged out displays that make it look like quality.
If you plan to spend much time in the recliners it's important to fit test them.
Stay away from RV furniture.

Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

We bought a powered loveseat with rocker/recliners from Ashley Furniture. It came it 3 pieces so no problem getting it into the MH. We paid them $69 to deliver and install it! Super comfortable!
