C'mon folks, has any one removed the factory chair from a Flagstaff? Other than cutting it up, how do you get it out the door? Bill

Check to see if it disassembles. If so, thereís your way. Maybe post some pics so some of us may have an idea as not all of us have those chairs.

The trailer is in storage until September, so I really can't take pictures right now.The replacement recliner is for comfort, not necessity, the original chair is reasonably low backed, perhaps the back can come off, I've never had reason to examine the chair closely. I'm SURE they did not build the trailer AROUND the furniture! So my thinking is they either some how maneuvered it out the door or perhaps came through the "escape" window. I'll have a chance to examine it closely in a week or two. Oh, the new recliner definitely breaks down to two pieces. It is the same width as the old chair, but of course much taller. Now, if you REALLY want a challenge---We may be upgrading the sleeper couch. THAT job will go to a professional. Bill

Chair Disassembly

Most seating systems will allow the removal of the back from a chair, even a recliner. You need to look at the area between the seat and the back, there should be a connection that is spring loaded. I'll take a picture of some I have here at work.

I work in residential and business seating, and the standard for a chair is fairly similar. I can't believe that a stand alone lounge chair would deviate much from that.

Most RV furniture has a two piece "slide on" piece of wood for the backs. Try just pulling up the back away from the seat. It got in there, they didn't build the unit around it. It will come apart, I'd bet. We got new big couch and they got it in without trouble. I've moved recliners several times in and out.

I agree. When I purchased a new Lazy Boy last year the back and seat base were 2 separate pieces.

Rockwood furniture can be removed out the door, some require release of the back! NOW if your future list happens to include a "Residential Refer" a large Window must be Removed! Youroo! !

The release should look something like this. If it has a spring latch, you can just force a screwdriver in there and it'll release.
