Jack knife sofa replacement

We are looking to replace our jack knife sofa with something more practical. Possible recliner. We lived in our cruise lite for a year before we found a property and the sofa did not fair well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

You can select any recliner design you want as long as ......

MEASURE MEASURE MEASURE. Exact measurements side to side assembled, and try to get one that does NOT require a lot of distance from the wall to recline.

Most units will come in two sections per recliner......the back usually separates from the seat portion. You need to measure these dimensions also, to make sure it’ll fit through your doorway.

Happy hunting.

Replace jack-knife sofa

We have a Cherokee 23MK and are replacing the sofa with two reclining chairs purchased from Camping World this past week. YES, we measured and remeasured.
