Out with the "Jacknife" sofa / bed

The couch in our Sabre was the typical built in jackknife type that opens up into a "so called bed"....not bad for sitting on but for sleeping it was a poor excuse for a bed...ok for children or small adults.. occasionally.
I removed it .....moved our 2 existing lazyboy recliners into the new space....and added a queen size sofa bed (with air mattress) into the space vacated by the recliners. I had to completely disassemble the new sofa bed to get it into the trailer and then re assemble....not a big job at all. We are very pleased with the result.

I like the idea. Got any pics?

I'd like to replace my pleather jack knife with a real sofa bed.
