Yep, think of it as a real cheap Futon.

Usually you lift up the front of the seat and the back drops back flat...leaves about six inches hanging across the front of the seat section with no support under it - very uncomfortable

Our floor plan is also different than yours. Our Jack knife is on the curbside at the entry door. The dinette and fridge are on the street-side slide out.
Looks like it would work if we removed the dinette, but would hate to loose the storage drawer space.
We have electrical appliances stored in the drawers. We would have to rethink an area for those items.
I would like to remove the Jack knife sofa and put Euro chair in its place.

I am wondering if the love seat sofa would be too heavy for the slide out, since it is the same slide out as our fridge is on?

My unit has a refer, stove and sofa bed on it, seems to handle it okay weight wise. Those slides can hold a lot of weight, I almost didn't buy it because I thought it would give me problems, but so far so good after 3 years.

We have a 2013 3171ds and are doing some RENOS to our needs ,so out went the jackknife sofa and dinette. Replaced it with a electric recliner loveseat and are buying a small dinette . We put the sofa on the slide and it was too high our feet wouldn't touch the floor . We decided to put the recliner on the other side behind the passenger seat and we extended the floor on the slide , that worked out nicely .We also took out all the flooring and the rug from the dinette area and replaced it ourselves with allure vinyl plank flooring . Its so much warmer looking and easier to clean . We also took out the bunk beds and are going to do the same flooring in the upper area and extend the slide out in the spring ...... ran out of warm weather . We are not too sure what we want to use the bunk area for . Might build some shelves and a table for crafting , for now its storage area .have the whole winter to decide . We are planning to live in our beautiful class c in a few years so we are getting it ready
