Lazy Boy recliner option

Wife and I examined 2 new Flagstaff units, a 832IKBS and a 831RKSS. Both of these units had the optional Lazy Boy recliners. We very greatly disappointed in their functionality. They only reclined a couple inches backwards and the footrest seemed "limp" leaving our legs angled downward. Kinda lame for almost a $1200 option. Has anyone discovered the same results with these chairs? They were very comfortable just to sit upon but very disappointing as recliners. Wondered if both sets that we tried had been abused by dealer lot visitors or is this the norm? Hate to spend $35 to $40K on a new trailer and then more $$$ to replace the recliners. Any real experiences on this subject are welcomed.

Our 8529IKBS came with the Lazy Boys.
Once you pull the lever, take both hands and push back on the armrests, pushing the chair back. You can recline to a point where you are almost laying down.
We love ours!

We had them . . .

. . . in our 2014 Flagstaff 832IKBS, and we loved them. Very comfortable, and when pulled from wall, they recline like any recliner. And, they were solidly built. No issues whatsoever. Hope this helps.

I have a 832IKBS with the recliners. They are very comfortable and as was stated earlier. You move the lever to recline and then push back with both hands on the rests. You can literally almost lay flat. I like them. Time will tell if they hold up.

YMMV

Ours came with the Pinnacle model Laz Boy recliners. You need to move it away from the wall and push/rock back a little while pulling the lever. This puts the leg rest up higher when you open the chair. I also attached furniture movers on the bottom base to make them easier to move out and stow for towing. They are very comfortable for us but each of us have our own fit.
