251RKS Upgrade to loveseat recliner

After our maiden voyage 3 weeks ago, the wife and I decided to upgrade to a loveseat recliner, the sofa bed just wasn't comfortable for sitting for us so here are a few pics after installing today.

Looks great! We are having trouble with the stock recliners in ours not wanting to close, this may be a good option if FR cannot fix them.

Nice work.

One of my peeves in RV design is the HUGE, space wasting, useless dinette. (the retro winnie they came out with a few years back, frex)

We buy only those with table/chairs.

Then.....we replace the couch with two big, soft, individual recliners.

After all, aren't comfort and convenience the goals, here ?

Loveseat

Have just ordered two recliners for our Coachman to replace the two tub chairs. Hope they look and fit as good as your love seat .

The love seat looks good. We are going to do the same thing because the ont that comes with the trailer is too uncomfortable. I have the problem of being 6'6" and most recliners are too small. We'll figure it out. Having the same model what do you use the cubbyhole in the bedroom for?

Spread M, Yes this is a regular love seat we bought from a furniture store.
I measured what max length and width and height I would need and went shopping.
