Salon recliners

I was reading the threads last night and saw where someone had replaced the recliners in the Trilogy for a pair of more modern scandinavian with ottomans. Can someone lead me to that post so I can contact the owner. I wonder if I can relocate the sofa to the rear also

Can't help you on the modern recliners - we personally prefer our big Lazyboys.

But we DID move our sofa to the rear before we even took possession of it. It just barely fits between the window valances. That means you have to leave it exact center and also means a vent is covered up. It never moves in transit and the slide easily closes in front of it.

We have the same set up with recliners in the rear and can't close the slide unless we position them side ways. It's a pain in the butt, the couch will not fit in the rear. Is there an issue with covering up a vent? I plan on finding a couch that will fit in the rear and remove the cheap recliners and purchase another brand and place them where the couch is now

furniture placement

so does the sofa fit in the rear or not? What make are these modern scandinavian recliners? It is true that positioning the recliners for travel are a pain. We use a blanket between them when positioned sideways and then restrain them with bungees. The valence has to be cleared or they will detach.

Chaimemet: Whether the couch will fit in the rear or not depends on the trailer you have. We previously had a Cedarcreek and we had to buy a smaller sofa to fit in the rear. However, in the Trilogy, the sofa fits perfectly in the rear. We like that sofa because it has a built in inflatable mattress with springs. Very comfy. Except ours slants. We have to find out why.

Bottom line - the sofa MAY fit depending on your trailer which you don't list.
