Sliding couch

Any ideas on how to keep our couch from sliding around while driving on twisty roads?

Open it up and add straps from the frame to the floor or if it doesn't open, unscrew the back legs and add a strap to the screw in the leg and re-attach.

My Spartan came with L-brackets on the 2 front feet of the love seat. They were screwed into the feet and floor.

Thanks for the ideas. I am concerned that the screws may go too far through the floor an scrape the floor when the slide goes in and out

I put these non slip furniture pads under my loveseat dual recliner that I installed:

It doesn't move at all. The loveseat I put them has a heavy metal frame under it so that might have helped mine stay in place. I can't push it around when I try!

Thatís fair. I could have used that lesson on my last camper. I rebuilt some draw supports and the screws poked through and tore up the floor in the bunkhouse.

Iím pretty sure the screws Spartan used were 1/2Ē but that wasnít on a slide.

Measuring the wood is pretty easy.

A 1/2" long screw should do the job.
