Please post pictures of your upgrade.

We have a 2300 SunSeeker and I wanted to replace the U shaped dinette with a love seat, wall hugger recliner. I noticed that on one of the 5th wheels that FR manufactures the love seat, wall hugger was manufactured by Lane furniture. Has any removed a U shaped dinette and how difficult is it? I did notice that the seat belt bolts going through the floor had nuts attached under the coach. Some were accessible and a couple were inside the spray foam insulation. Also should I be concerned about weight distribution? Thanks for a response!

I have a 2013 3010DS and we opted to replace the sofa with a Lazy Boy, Love Seat, double recliner, Carter model. The opening on the slide is 66" and the love seat recliner is 65" wide. Fits nice. I was able to secure the love seat to the slide platform using sheet metal screws thru the metal frame. The love seat had a 7" to 8 " overhang on the front of the slide platform and I fabricated a 2"x4" brace with 3 rollers attached and works great with the movement of the slide.
