Replacement furniture

I finally found a replacement couch I liked at a good price, so I ordered it today! Went to Lazy Boy and they had a full size couch (Pinnacle Line) with dual recliners and a fold down center shelf with cup holders and a tray. It is regularly $1500.00, on sale for $1150.00. You can get any color fabric or leather you want to match your coach, we ordered the Platinum (grey) to match the black and tan interior. The dimensions of the couch will fit with 15" to spare. It will take 4-6 weeks to build, but at least it is built in the USA (Redlands, CA). Looking forward to a confortable sit. Even though you lose the bed, the recliners are comfortable enough to sleep on (I do at home sometimes anyway).

Anyone want to buy the stuff I take out? Almost new.

Happy Trails, Forrest

Are you taking out a hide a bed or a jack knife type couch? I think our hide a bed is a pain. Prior owner never used it. We are new to this so have no idea how they come out. Are you located any where near Seattle?

Coupevillefish we are in SoCal. The couch has the inflatable mattress which is easy to set up and very comfortable. Our issue was with the Faux leather couch that we did not care for.

Now the $64,000 question. Will the new couch fit through the door to get it inside the coach? Just wondering, I know the newer units have larger door openings than my 2007. I've seen a few things on TV about manufacturers that have to remove the front windshield to get the full size refrigerators out when they have to be replaced.

Typically the backs come off Lazy Boy products so shouldn't be a problem to get in door.

cf, the answer is yes, it will fit. The couch without the backs on is 23" high, and the door opening is 28". Worst case scenario is I will have to remove the inside assist handle to get enough room. Even with the handle in place, I have about 26" clearance. I may have to take the closer off the door and let it open as far as possible to have plenty of clearance.

Good point though, from what I have read on this forum the hardest part of the job is getting the old one out the door. Lazy Boy will deliver the new one INSIDE the motorhome.

along the same lines, has anybody removed their night stands and queen bed and replaced with a king bed? if so, how much 'remodeling' was involved.

That's good to hear. I'm sure removing the original will be an adventure. I moved a sofa/bed years ago and thought there were a couple bodies folded inside the stupid thing. The weight is an issue but the arkwardness of turning it will probably be your biggest thing to deal with.
As for Lazy Boy delivering it inside. It doesn't get any better than that. We have one of their big recliners in the house and it's beyond comfortable. I could live in that thing if I could get my wife out of it.

I haven't changed mine but I have had it apart a few times looking for an electrical junction box. In my case the bed is within a slide-out. The night stands are just screwed in place. I would think you could keep the base but just change the plywood for the new mattress to sit on once the nightstands are removed. The overhang wouldn't be bad enough that the plywood would bend on the edges.
