1. Not really. We are actually making the slide floor a little deeper so your feet can sit there. If you're talking modifying an existing unit, two recliners would take up the entire slide floor so there would be no damage to repair. In the middle we have a cabinet with table top, which you could make any depth to cover the whole floor. I'll see if I can get a picture.

We could fit a 32" TV up front, but the 28" we use has a metal cabinet and is not as deep. So it makes it fit really well up there and if you want to use the swing arm to move the TV around, you are grabbing a metal frame, not a plastic one. A 32" would fit however.

Yes. We have backer in the floor for a table pedestal. You would just need to cut the hole and add a leg. I can certainly get you a print of the location.

My issue with a reclining sofa is that its not really a reclining sofa. The legs kick up, but the back does not recline. So it really is not all that comfortable. Our dual theater seats, the legs kick up and the back actually reclines almost all the way back...so you could take a nap there. Mouth open and snoring, but a nap none-the-less (or maybe that's just me)

Here is the print for the hole location. The front to back is the crucial part, as it fits right in between two aluminum tubes.

We use a Springfield recessed floor plate. Fits the exact same tube from the dinette table.

Thanks so much for the info. I would love a pic of the prototype to show DH. Sounds like he would be very comfortable there also. Is it a sure thing that the dinette can be swapped for the recliners or are you still working thru the details? And in the 2016/17 would we still have room for the table in front of the recliners or would that have to move/made smaller? Just want to let DH know the right info. Btw, we were both impressed with the niceness of the Isata 3 FW. Didn't expect to be but we think it is a great option for those who are downsizing from a Class A.

I'll get a picture.
The recliners can be swapped, since that basically what we did for the photo, but they will sit high. For orders, we will extend the slide floor about 5" to give a platform.

As for a table, we don't have a good solution there. We could go in the floor, but then it is not functional when the slide is "IN". If we can, we'll look at a small table that sits in an arm. Soooo, I guess that means we're still tweaking things.

Those look beautiful. I guess another solution is to eat from the front swivel chairs using the table there. Do you by chance have a pic of the table between the front chairs?

Unfortunately I do not. But really, TV trays would work for that application. It would also allow you to get up and down from the chairs.

Agreed. Just showed DH prototype pics. He liked them also. So timing wise, etc this may work out.

Two quick questions. How much outdoor storage (cu ft) is there in the FW model? And underneath the bed (2 shoe boxes, milk crates, etc). We did not look behind that door.

Thanks so much. You have been extremely helpful!

The exterior is storage is not our best, but it is inline with all the other floor plans similar to this one. The bed has a decent amount of storage.
