Question Theater seating or Recliners 8325

My husband and I currently own a Rockwood 8329SS and due to an issue with the flooring, are trading it in for the 8325 model. We are wondering if anyone has any opinion on the theater seating versus the 2 recliners. I did not care for having to turn and strap them down every time we camp (which is a lot) but wonder how comfortable the theater seating is since the backs don't recline.

Thanks!

We love our theater seating.. Only problem was rockwood put a 72 " theater seat in a 70 " so the 2nd time we reclined it torn the leather. So make sure you have the space for it. They do stay in place.

We have the 8325SS with the leather theater seating and love them.
I usually sleep half the night in them before the dogs wake me up to go to bed.

Cheers!

I just re-read your comment: "since the backs don't recline."
Ours recline, so my original comment still stands...Now if they didn't recline I may have a different opinion.

Cheers!

What kind of a flooring issue?

We have an 8329, and found that removing the table between the recliners gives much more room for them. We set drinks on the tables in the corners, and there are reading lights overhead so the center table light isn't needed.

It's also much easier to position them back to back for travel this way. We also ordered ours with minimum carpet and this makes it easy to slide the recliners.
The 8325 was our second favorite layout, but we like the larger rear window and more open feeling with the recliners in the main part of the trailer.

You might try removing the center table and see if that helps you stow the recliners in the 8329, good luck.
