Sofa comfort??

We are seriously thinking of purchasing a 3050. Could some of you please give me your opinion on how comfort the sofa is for watching TV. Neck pain?? Long term watching comfort for like a football game?

3050S sofa comfort

Get some good pillows for the sofa and it should be fine...for one person. Sitting and watching is not that comfortable, but not terrible either.

But what do i know, i dont go camping to watch TV. The other creature comforts in the 3050S far outweigh an awkward viewing angle of the idiot box.

We are also looking to buy a 3050S and have the same concerns. BClemens suggested attaching an additional swing arm to the existing arm to enable the TV to be adjusted to a better angle to the sofa. We have also thought about attaching the TV to a flip up/down mtg bracket and sacrificing one of the overhead cabinets above the dinette and mounting it either under the cabinet or directly to the cabinet door and permanently securing the cabinet door to function as a mounting base for the bracket. Not sure if this will work, but until we actually get the MH, can't really tell for sure, but it's a thought anyway.

Having sat on a sofa in a Motorhome with the overhead entertainment center on a dealer's lot, I can tell you that it is even worse from the sofa, especially from the one end of the sofa nearest the cab area.

If you don't have children or grandchildren that go with you, we highly recommend the overhead entertainment center. The 42" TV can be seen from any angle in the coach and the cabinets are roomy. One has a slide out drawer and the other has a shelf.

We have the 42" overhead and love it! Got rid of the sofa altogether and going with two swivel recliners. Much nicer that way for just the DW and me.

Any special considerations on the recliners (i.e. anchoring them down)? Also, is there room for a small end table in between them? Does the foot rest extend all the way to the dinette?
