Furniture Replacement

We have a 2008 Georgetown 378TS and really didn't need the couch/bed that came with the unit. We decided to replace the chair and couch with a pair of swivel/recliner/rockers in black leather. They are bolted to the slide and ride without any problem. The recliner lever is situated on the inside of the chair near the right seat cushion so activating it does not require having additional clearance to allow for an external handle. The chairs have adjustable headrests and if we remove the travel bolts they will extend almost flat to provide a single sleeping arrangement. The rocking function can be turned on and off so that they do not rock while traveling. I have a locking pin arrangement that will be installed shortly to keep the chair from swiveling while moving and have installed the seat belts on the slide floor so they can be used by any additional travelers.
The chairs were purchased at Urban Barn and are manufactured by IMG Norway. Home - :. IMG - Norway .: if anyone is looking for a local retailer. These chairs are not cheap and are extremely well built. I will attempt to download a couple of photos.

Nice chairs and arrangement. So did they make the chairs for you or did they have a show room that you visited?

The chairs were in a showroom as they are essentially house furniture.
