Furniture question

I am looking for furniture ideas for my fifth wheel. I am considering removing my dining table or the 2 back recliners and installing another sofa/bed option for my oldest son.I currently have a couch now that folds out but we are one bed short. Any recommendations or sites to visit? thanks

Could you replace the recliners with a residential style sofa/sleeper? I would recommend keeping the dining table if at all possible. It may come in handy for eating/playing board games or cards on a rainy day.

"Could you replace the recliners with a residential style sofa/sleeper?" Might need to think about actually fitting it through the door! lol. I've seen folks use a Futon but I know they don't make a comfortable couch or a bed.

I would keep the table and go to a furniture store with the measurements you need. You will find something I am sure. A hide-a-bed or jacknife sofa would be more durable than a sofa with an air bed.

My only recommendation is to use furniture from a "regular" store. RV tagged furniture is either very expensive or very cheaply made. We replaced our Jayco chairs with furniture store recliners and are happy we did.

I agree totally. We did the same thing.

I have a few pieces in my home that have removable backs, couches and chairs. Most Lay Z boys have this feature which makes getting into tight doorways a lot easier. Ask the sales people about companies that offer this feature. As far as a sleeper with this option I cannot comment as most have a different type construction that may not offer this option.
