Looking for suggestions for replacing the couch in our 3010ds with recliners. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Unless you are prepared, sticker shock will get you. I was going to change mine in my 3010 DS and decided against it. Would have been pricey and shipping was outrageous. I bought a couple collapseable foot stools from Amazon. Not the same as recliners but serves the purpose. Very cheap.

We did the Amazon footstool....helps but not the answer. Planning on going camping as much as possible in 2021 if this covid19 is over and really would like recliners if affordable.

From the research I did, if you can get away with 2 grand and are happy with that go for it. Add options and the price goes up really quick. I was getting quotes of $300 to $500 for shipping alone.

Also, that was me doing all the work myself.

I picked up my Thomas Payne recliners (made by Lippert) from a dealer at an RV show and saved a bit and no shipping. I had room for the two chairs with heat and massage and the wide console in my 2801QS.

I picked up the Recpro 67 inch dual recliners with center console for $ 1,115.00 shipping was free and installation was fairly simple. The wife found a 5% discount code online or the price would have been $55 more. I posted my process online.

Ok, I apologize, I just checked my receipt log and the 70" recpro Charles dual recliners were $1,192 purchase price and shipping included.

Bought them in October 2019.

Previously I said they cost "about" $1,000, I am not usually that far off in remembering costs.

Was the install negotiated as part of the purchase?

Probably like most people I searched the web for something that looked good and had good reviews. I was going to replace the sofa myself but asked my rv dealer if I bought it, would he install it? Without hesitation he agreed. So I ordered it myself and changed the ship-to to my rv dealers address.

Here's all the items I had the rv dealer do, with one charge for labor:

Install Winegard T4 automatic in motion satellite
Install 2 wally receivers
Custom install tv wall mount with pan / tilt for 43" tv
Install Furion Vision S backup observation camera
Remove/replace booth dinette (for new flooring)
Remove/reinstall booth dinette 110 outlet
Remove/reinstall booth dinette seat belt anchors
Remove Jack knife sofa
Install 70" recpro Charles dual recliners
Strip flooring and prepare subfloor for LVP flooring
(LVP flooring labor and material performed by a flooring subcontractor)
Retrofit old sofa trim onto slide out base
Install new matching baseboard trim
Caulk flooring to wall in kitchen and bath wet areas

Total labor to rv dealer:$2,257

I think you got a good deal for all that work. Good negotiation on your part.

My original post was really just about the install but it was appalling to see people being quoted $300 to $500 just for delivery. Recpro prices with free delivery for a good quality unit was my point here. Thanks for helping make that.
