Yes you should have no issue with that, we replaced our with dual recliners with a center console and have a end table. These were purchased at furniture store and not RV specific. We also replaced our dinning room table and purchased a 36" tall table works better for us.

Here is my double recliner after getting rid of that piece of junk sofa sleeper.

Yet I did and it weighs less than the sofa sleeper.
I found one that was a wall hugger type with a metal base that doesn't go over the edge of the slide.
I measured from wall to edge of the slide. Then I went shopping and found one perfect fit for $499 that the back and side arms came off so it easily fit thru the main door.
I also sold the sleeper couch on Craigslist for $450 to a guy remodeling his 5th wheel so we all were very happy.


I also got rid of the Euro Chair and replaced it with a perfectly fit small roll top desk I also found on Craigslist for $250. See picture of both. I also attached the desk with L brackets and screws.


Oh shoes should not be longer than the true thickness of the slide floor. 3/8" - 1/2" is ok if I remember correctly.
It doesn't take much to hold them in place.

Great information...we hope to sell the sofa and chair on Craigslist as well..hard to believe you got that much. The sofa we are looking at is a 2" deeper than the slide so we are thinking we will have to raise the front of it on a block or something while taking the slide in and out. We have found it not easy to find one with the right dimensions that will fit through the door and the slide.

Where did you find this? Looks like a match for the sofa in our Crusader that currently has two swivel recliners in the opposing slide

Would like to replace recliners with theater seating

Sorry it was a little local furniture store here in Avondale Arizona and not a chain.

Iggy have you by chance changed out or moved the Tv mount over the fireplace? Would like to have one with a bit more movement and perhaps back a bit so that we could add a sound bar
