Replacing Jackknife Sofa

Want to replace the jackknife sofa with acouple of recliners or a reclining loveseat. Please post your solutions. I saw that Forest River has a new loveseat but have no idea how to find out about it. What have you all
done ?

I replaced mine with 2 Lazy Boy wall hugger type recliners. Had to build a 12" deep platform, to make slide floor even with dinette, for the front legs to sit on, put casters on it and carpeted it to match. I left extra carpet on back of platform to lay over slide floor where sofa sat and stapled it over the original carpet. It moves in and out with the slide. Much more comfortable than the sofa. I have a 3010DS Sunseeker MH.

Here's what we did to our Lexi 283ts. Removed the jacknife and replaced it with a dual recliner from Shop4Seats.
First pic is old jacknife, rest are new seats.

If I can learn how to post a picture, I'll put it on. Just got a smart phone, and can barely take pictures, let alone do anything with them! Trying to get a grand kid to show me how, it they ever come over.
