Remove sofa for two chairs

Has anyone replaced their sofa in a SV264 with two chairs.

Questions:
1- Can the change be made by an non-master tech?
2- Can you use non rv chairs?
3- With the small width of the door, can the sofa come apart?
4- Is there a need to buy extra carpet for floor?

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

We've thought about doing the same thing.
I'm following this one.

The two recliners went in easier because the back and seat are not attached

The problem is that the SV264 doesn't have a 'flush floor' slideout...the bottom of the couch is the bottom of the slideout to fit over the wheel well. I looked into the same idea when we had a Rockwood 2605 TT with a similar slide set-up. I couldn't come up with an idea to swap out the couch.

If you used flush mount carriage bolts ran up through the bottom wouldn't that work?

No...the problem is that the bottom of the slide is about 13-14" above the floor of the camper when it's pulled in.

Look at the non-door side exterior picture and you'll see what I mean about the height of the slide.

I have a 2010 year model. Is there a difference in the slides?

It's real easy to tell looking at the slide from the outside. Some of FR campers are lower to the ground so the wheel well extends above the floor surface. They hide the one side usually under the dinette and the other side under the couch which then requires that style of slide.

If I was able to change out the sofa in our Rockwood 2605 TT with recliners, I would have probably kept it longer. Unfortunately that's the negative of that stye of slideout.

I got a chance to look under the sofa today, and you are correct it is part of the slide-out. (darn). May need to trade for another TT.
