Are the recliners RV after market, or did you find a way to mount something purchased from a furniture store ?

Chairs

Yes my wife and I bought them from a furniture store. We measured the RV door to make sure we could get the new ones in. I did have to make a strap to hold them together while traveling. We just turn them back to back and strap themGood luck

I have the Flagstaff version of that tt. There is a platform under the couch. You cannot remove that
I tried because the couch is uncomfortable.

Not a Minilite but a 26' Arctic Fox. Replaced couch with two Lazy Boy wall huggers. Sure is more comfortable

I just remembered. The mechanism for the slide and other electronics are under the false bottom. If you figure out how to overcome that let me know.

This is what discouraged me from swapping the couch for recliners in our 2109s. The slide motor is under the couch. Not sure how recliners would work around this.
