L-Shaped Couch

We purchased the 335 in April and never opened the L-shaped sleeper until last week. It was impossible to sleep on. I can't believe they actually call it a sleeper. The middle third of the bed is several inches lower than the outside two-thirds. Is this common?Click image for larger version

I got a 377 and it is the same. The most ridiculous thing I ever seen. Useless. Even my dogs don't want to sleep on it.

I reached out to Forest River and they essentially said"Yea that's the way it is. Try memory foam". I can't believe they continue to put these things in their motorhomes.

The dinette makes a much better bed. We use a Coleman inflatable mattress for the couch, which is easy and comfortable.

I will have to do that too. It's too bad we have to do that just to be able to sleep on it.

We just ordered a double recliner last week. Will take out the L-couch and just throw an air mattress on the floor if need be. Our new recliners -recline all the way flat. Probably small kids be able to use it to sleep on ??

L-shaped sofa

We made the same mistake and didn't fold it out. Ours looks exactly like that. It is horrible. Just contacted Forest River. Will post any positive results.

X10 on how bad it is. I tried it on a trip last year with memory foam that helped a bit but im thinking a blowup mattress would be better. Blocking the walkway for those in the bedroom is another issue.

Air bed on top

Tried memory foam but still uneven and uncomfortable. Got a queen Intex air bed with built in inflator and it works great. We set it up every night and watch the large TV from the bed and stow it underneath the sofa during the day. Very comfortable now.

No pull strap for the sofa. Remove the back cushions, grab the front of the sofa at the bottom, swing up and out, fold down the back and place the cushions in the middle to fill the space. Not difficult once you get the hang of it.
