378 slide area dimensions

Ready to put that shiny new tape measure from Santa to work?

I need the measurements of the living room slide areas on the 378 (height, width, depth). On the driver's side, I just need the area forward of the kitchen counter (where the sofa starts). I've searched FR and this forum, can't find 'em.

Also, can't find any weight restrictions for the slides. In case you swap the furniture for something heavier, how heavy can you go? Or are you OK as long as you stay within the GVWR?

As always, many thanks for all the help here. Great forum. Hoping to start my path toward becoming one of the wise elders here in 2013!

I'm thinking someone wants to replace the hide-a-bed and recliner with a couple of big comfy Lazy-Boy like recliners??????????

Possibly. Or maybe a deeper, longer sofa sleeper. I'm 6'3", would be nice to have one where I can stretch all the way out between the arms (those are rare). And I doubt I'll be able to stand upright in the slide, just wondering how much I'll have to hunch over to keep from bangin' my noggin' on the top of the frame. Do they make bumper pads for those things?

On that subject, how's the shower experience for you tall guys and gals?

I'm looking around for 2 wall-hugger recliners to replace the couch. Then a table between. Any good ideas or pictures would be helpful folks.

Slide length=98", sofa is 69" and chair is 29". There's no room left over. Slide is 29" depth, sofa over hangs by 3-4". Height is 69" but you mst subtract 12" for overhead cabs. Unless you levitate leaving chair or sofa you cannot strike your head.
Dining space is similar with no overhead cabs. Hope it's useful.

Sure....found a "home theater" combo with center storage. Have room at the end for a table with a file cabinet for all the important papers. We also have a lamp there, makes it look like home. Notice the lack of carpet. You can just barely see the runner that we use down the center of the living area.

Thant is what my DW is looking for.
Is it a wall hugger?
Where did you buy from?
How much?
I also noticed the pole lamp. Didn't know that that wall had an outlet.

Found the "home theater" seating at a furniture outlet on sale for 50% off. Cost us $1100. All real leather, too. We just lucked out. We had been looking for awhile but they were all way to expensive. And they do recline, are wall-away style and in fact, they sleep great! We have a duplex outlet on the exterior wall close to the kitchen. That is where the orginal hide a bed air pump was plugged in.
