Removing the sofa on a 35S

Has anyone removed their sofa, or had it removed, as it came from the factory?

If so, how hard was it and how did it come out of the coach?

What did you replace it with?

Would like to know if I can do it and then replace it with 2 wall hugger rocker-recliners I can attach to the floor or a recliner sofa. Thanks!

Many of us have removed sofas/loveseats and thrown them in the trash. Takes about 10 minutes just start removing screws. It's light too so I can be a one man job. I replaced with residential furniture but to do over I would get RV theatre seating. It's lighter and easier to install. Also the dimensions of the RV furniture take compact spaces into account. All of the furniture bolts together in smaller pieces and can be assembled in the coach.

Will start measuring and find a suitable replacement that fits. CW has a Seismic Series heated, illuminated, power reclining w/seat massager theater seat for about $1,600, so that could be a possibility to start looking. They indicate installation is $112 but don't mention removal cost or if it's included. Will start finding out and end with pics of the process when done. Excited!

Our '16 35S has a really comfortable sofa and people that have slept on it when opened to a bed say it is comfortable to sleep on. We'll keep it.

Removing the sofa on a 35S

Ordered electric recliners with center section from CW. Need some guidance on removing original sofa bed on our 35S prior to their arrival. I promise pictures here of the whole process. Please share your comments, opinions and suggestions. Planning to start on May 1st.

Don't know if it's like jack knife loveseat on 31 ul. I just removed cushions, opened up bed, and unbolted middle from sides, sides from floor. You'll end up with a handful of bolts and washers. Due to the center being bulky you may need someone else to help you get it out the door. I opened my slide and dismantled right there.

We’ve gone down a very parallel path, I removed our “L” shaped sofa and replaced it with the Thomas Payne theater seating from CW.
Sofa removal was pretty straight forward. The back has a clip mechanism that allows it to be removed from the bottom. Examine the sofa back hinge. My clips were covered with a fabric flap that was velcro’d In place.
IIRC the half of the bed portion required a couple of bolts to be removed and it then came out. The bed end of the sofa was screwed to the “L” portion which was screwed to a short wall that divides the living/kitchen areas. None of it was attached to the floor. I started by looking for things that had to be removed to get it into pieces and once I got going it was pretty simple. To simplify things I cut the back cushions off and removed them separately (the whole thing was headed to the dump anyway).
We already had a couple of recliners which we “recline” in but watching anyone trying to be comfortable on the sofa was painful. I may or may not attach the new stuff to the floor. The recliners are not attached and don’t move around in transit so I’m not in a hurry to screw down the new sofa.
We started with the 3 pieces that make the sofa and I found I had enough room for one of the center armrest piece. It should be delivered today. I found removing and installing to be a 2 person job.
Very pleased with the new sofa, very comfy!

I ordered the power recliners with a center section and looking forward to getting them. Also have massage, heater and lights. CW promptly hit my credit card for the full amount. When I enquired about delivery, was told 6-8 weeks. Called Lippert and they confirmed it would be a while. Wonít start disassembling sofa until I know the 3 sections are in their way. Patiently waiting... not!

Congrats on the purchase, Palms! I bought thru CW too and discovered mail order apparently doesn’t have any real inventory, of large things anyway. I asked about shipping to the local brick n mortar store hoping to avoid shipping costs but they said they couldn’t. After a week or so I emailed CW about my stuff and they got me a tracking number so I was able to watch it crawl towards me. Fortunately I had other projects that kept me from “standing at the stove waiting for the pot to boil.
I ordered a 3 recliner sofa which arrived in good shape. Then discovered I had room for a center arm rest which I ordered (got them to give me a break on shipping). When it arrived it looked like it’d been harpooned, huge hole in the box and the armrest. I contacted CW about the damage, sent them pics of the box and armrest damage. They seem to be handling its replacement. Waiting on it’s arrival.
I may have room for a second center armrest which will be great.
