We have yet to take a trip in our 3011, but I fully expect to replace the couch after our first season. We decided against the factory recliner for two reasons. First, at the show they were not as comfortable as I would have liked. Second, there are a few aftermarket couch style recliners for not much more money that give you the option of folding up the middle section so that three people can be seated as opposed to just two with the factory recliner.

Where do you purchase the recliners that you can flip up the center section? When our brother in law comes to our house, he always sleeps on the couch even though we have beds so I'm thinking it could serve that purpose as well. Hmmm. Its a big purchase, big decisions. Nothing life threatening though thank God. These are the good decisions in life to have to make Thank you everyone for your input. Really appreciated. The main reason we like this floor plan is it seems to have the most floor space and room to move around if we have the 3 big dogs with us. We have dogs that have to be close to us or touching us at all times…lol

We got the LZ Boy reclining love seat. Doesn't have a center arm. It's not theater seating that come as a option. You can go to any L Z boy store and pick one. We got the James Collection. You will need to modify the slide floor to get full recline.

My wife and I just bought a 2016 in August model 3011DS and absolutely love it. Love the bigger fridge especially for longer road trips. Don't need a cooler for the extra food and drinks. We feel the u shaped dinette is much better than the normal dinette more room. We have a dog and 2 kids and find we have plenty of storage for our food without having a pantry. We looked for a year and several class C and loved the forester the second we walked through the door. We like the pull out couch feature but I know when our kids don't camp anymore we will replace the couch with 2 recliners.

Get the 3011 with the big fridge (you can always store non-fridge items in there...but you can't store fridge items in a pantry). Then get the regular dinette...if I recall, the regular dinette is smaller and you get a pantry in the slide then. Best of both worlds.

Rekwiat, we went with the Sunseeker 3010DS, Big Fridge, Recliners, U shape dinette. Power driver seat to aid in fatigue control and swivel pax seat for an extra coach seat.
Ours came off the line this week and will deliver to 3 way campers in Marietta soon. Remember, there is a ~12 foot long line of overhead cabinets on the dinette side slide for storage in addition to what you have on the kitchen side. An often overlooked feature of the U dinette is that it is longer in bed mode than the booth dinette is, if you need an adult size extra bed that doesn't involve a ladder.

Gidyup,

We have a 3011 with the same driver/passenger seat configuration as you;

"Power driver seat to aid in fatigue control and swivel pax seat for an extra coach seat."

Quick question, on the driver side power seat, does the joystick switch work in the opposite direction of what you expect? i.e. if you move it up the seat goes down?

They must of installed the Chinese module... <pause> you, know, other side of the globe..... It would be correct if you were in China....... Ok, I'm back. Sorry, but we haven't picked ours up yet.
I will add that to our PDI now, so thanks and I will let you know. Just guessing here, maybe there are a couple of screws that you can remove and spin the controls 180?
