Lazy Boy for our Wildcat

Would like to change out the folding couch in our 24RL to a recliner. I am not sure the is enough room between the rear of the camper and the kitchen counter cabinet?

We have a Cherokee 28bh. I removed the 42" couch and found there was not enough room for any recliner unless it was a very expensive specially built RV recliner. So instead of buying one of those, I removed the 8' dinette and now have two cheap Rooms to Go recliners. We are on the road now and the set up is working very well.

Wish I could help, but from the floorplan, looks like it may be a little tight in the reclining position.

We have a 25RL and just had the dealer take the couch out so we could have a La-Z-Boy recliner instead. We have the "big man" recliner which does fit into the slideout space (along with a TV table) -- no room for anything else in that space but my husband's medical issues make having a comfortable chair a must. The recliner is not a wall hugger so it protrudes into the limited "living room" space but its a choice we willingly made.

I took the couch out of my 30'QB class C and put in a recliner. I too wondered about whether or not it would fit. Before beginning the project, I picked out a Lazy-boy, (zero clearance) measured it in ALL positions to make sure I had enough room. Caution, zero clearance isn't really zero clearance when fully reclined.
