Why the 2013 mid year furniture change?

DW has seen an early 2013 Sanibel 3600 pics of the air mattress couch and recliners with the pockets. Our 3600 has the standard mattress fold out bed and the more "plain" looking recliners. DW wants to know why the change in style of furniture.

Manufacturers have the right to make changes in things, says so on the back of every brochure. Maybe the furniture supplier made changes to the design of the sofa and recliners, hence Sannibel puts in what it gets. Maybe there was a switch in furniture suppliers.

Most likely, you are referencing the change in furniture brand. We are now using Lane Furniture (a new supplier) in the Sanibel. This was a mid-year change that was not driven by the model year.

Sorry for the confusion.

RV Guy....I believe that Prime Time is now using the Lane Furniture in the Crusader. We have a 2012 320RL and very very much dislike the sofa, the trailer was so nice but that sofa was terrible and they really skimped on it. How can I go about purchasing one made by Lane?

You can order a Lane Sofa thru your dealer - lots of current owners have gone this route.

Angry Useless Sleeper Sofa in 2012 3400

We bought this trailer new in February of 2013. Wasn't until we had an overnight guest for the first time late August of 2013 that we opened this sofa up and noticed it was lower on the head end then the foot end by about 3-4 inches. Totally unacceptable and extremely uncomfortable to sleep on. Needless to say the next time we had an overnight guest they slept on an air mattress on living room floor. I would not put anyone on this useless excuse for a bed. Anyone know of a replacement that matches the recliners in the unit, that does not cost an arm and a leg and that would fit in the space...thanks for any help or suggestions on this matter.

You have a 1 year warranty I suggest you make the factory fix it.

No reason for you to pay for their mistake.

Yeah I don't think that will happen. We went to our dealer once already about another problem and the reply was and I quite "I guess your just going to have to live with it". Not impressed with our dealer or Primetime :-(

The squeaky wheel gets the grease. I wouldn't set back and take it, I'd fight. If the dealer won't help, it's time to go to FR and get help.
