Rockwood 2703ws - sofa swap for dual recliners

We recently purchased a Rockwood 2703ws and have decided to replace the sofa with dual recliners. We have found one we like but the depth dimensions have us questioning if it will work. I know we have seen where others have replaced their sofa's with loveseat recliners from Lay-Z-boy. The cost for this option makes it prohibitive for us at this time. We would love to hear from others with this model that have made the switch and what they went with - brand and model # would be much appreciated. Dimensions of new furniture would be great to know for comparison. Thanks in advance for all the input.

Trying to do the same with a 2702ws. Assume the same stock sofa in both trailers? Need suggestions on best replacement for dual recliners. Camping world has a number of versions, just not sure of size and comfort.

We were communicating with Sheri Dunlap at Forest River to see about theater seating option that they would recommend for the swap. Figure they may have one that is used in similar models that we could get. This way we would not have to worry about size and weight and it would be what would work best. This is her reply;

"In checking with our production manager, your unit does not have the theater seating option. The reason being, the depth of the slide out with the theater seating will cause damage to your flooring. The theater seating two front feet will sit out the front of the slide out on the flap of slide carpet. When the slide out is moved in and out, the feet will wear through the carpet and damage the linoleum flooring underneath as well. "

We know there are options out there but we now know to be very cautious on the placement of the front feet in relation to the front slide. Seems like the depth is the main concern here. Our search continues.
