Would those fit over the furnace that's under a jackknife sofa?

This is such a great idea and would love to make this change in our trailer. But there are water lines underneath the jackknife sofa in our 24FBS, so I don't think it would be possible.

That darn sofa is so uncomfortable and there is no where to put a "cold one". Really love the cup holders in your seats too.

This MOD is the top of my list. The jackknife loveseat is very uncomfortable and my wife hates it....so much so, that I think I can get this MOD approved by the powers that be

That said...MadDad got the deal of a lifetime for getting those specific seats for $895 with shipping. I can't find that ANYWHERE. I have scoured the internet.

BUT, I did find this site...where you can pick a model that you like and then go to several websites to find the right configuration and color.
Seatcraft | Home Theater Seating & Sectionals

Hope this helps.

Gbowenva,
We are deciding to get the Greyhawk 29MV, and want to replace the sofa as well with recliners. Did you find replacement chairs to fit?

I have a 2016 Greyhawk 29MV and also looking to replace the Jackknife sofa with recliners. Has anyone looked at the RecPro seating? They have a model that is 58" long that looks like it would fit right in. They want $700 with free freight. https://www.recpro.com/products/recp...oveseat-toffee. You can also buy them on Amazon.

ButchC, It looks great, but is it the "kick to close" foot rest? The one I'm looking at is the manual pull handle along the side, and it is 58" wide also. I have the kick to close type sofa in our home, and has days/years go by, it is getting much more difficult to accomplish the task.

Butch - quoting from the website "Parachute style pull handle is attached to an all metal reclining mechanism that is smooth and easy to operate", so it looks like one of those where you reach down beside the cushion and armrest and pull a handle. That makes sense, because in an RV the fit is so tight that the normal outside handles would be difficult to accommodate.

Mike, I'm not familiar with that type of mechanism. In your opinion would this be good in an RV (providing it fits)? Also to answer goldenbetty would this "kick back" to bring in the foot rest?
Thanks,
Butch

I found it necessary to put a strap on our mechanism because it seemed buried between the seat cushion and side of recliner arm.

Dansy,
Take a look at RecPro.com. They have several sizes in diferent colors. I am interested in their 58" model and emailed them for further info to make sure it will fit in my Greyhawk 29MV. Camping World also has their Thomas Paine line on sale as well, but their prices are much higher even with the sale.

We were able to call the company that made our sofa and they had the same material and several theater seats of different lengths to chose from. Check the tag.
