It's a good idea to check to ensure that they haven't moved before you put the slides out. If they have shifted forward, the recliner could get caught on the slide fascia and damage the chair and the fascia. I don't know if you can get to the back of the camper with the slides in to check though.

Oh, I WILL find a way to get there. Bring out the monkey in me. LOL

I've had that happen with other rigs, and not fun. Fortunately no major damage.

I will be taking the two standard chairs out, and putting in one relatively small recliner. I'll also look into some sort of strap to ensure that it stays in place.

But thanks for the heads up.

RodeoGeorge, We have a 8288ws and absolutely love it. As I am only semi-retired we liked the idea of having a desk so I can work as we travel. As for your Recliner chair question, they turn upside down and interlock into the couch on the superslide. There are pre-mounted floor rings and straps that hold the chairs firm. Although we have not traveled great distances, I have never had any shifting of the chairs, nor anything else.

George, I have a 8288WS and have traveled 8500 miles around lower USA with it. I have now exported this unit to Australia. The 2 recliners are a tight fit but one is placed in front of the entertainment unit and the other turned sideways at the rear wall. I also have the collapsible dinette which is handy for an extra bed.

In the 2604, there is plenty of room for the chairs without stacking. Turn the backs to the door with chairs side by side. They never move. Not sure why anyone would stack them. Jack
