I put a Lambright recliner in my 29 MV. Very nice wall hugger and it swivels.

Are you looking on adding or will this replace something? I've been leaning towards RecPro to replace jack knife sofa.

I took out the uncomfortable jack knife sofa with two recliners fit perfect in the space when I am set up I pull them out and place them where I want, when I put them back use seat belts to hold them in place

I was told you could order other colors, we just chose one that went with the rest of the coach.The one thing that was nice the backs pop right off easy in or out the door to clean and yes they are not as big as your home recliner at I am tall and still can stretch out in the recliner for a nap.I looked at some other cheap recliners but would of been a pain to get it inside since the backs were fixed on the recliner and quality was not good.

With my two recliners I just take one belt for each recliner and belt it in like a person buckle is in the middle of lower part of the recliner, as far as the jack knife sofa that was easy I unbolted the back and the bottom cushion the took lower frame out the door saved for later if I want to reinstall

X2 on the RecPro - we replaced the useless, uncomfortable jacknife in our 31DS with a RecPro double recliner. No trouble getting it in the door or installing it. We anchored it to the floor by bolting it to a piece of 5/8" plywood and then using the original anchor bolts for the jacknife to bolt the plywood to the floor.

We used lazyboy for our greyhawk, just not fond of them being up on the platform.

dgantz, nice looking installation! It appears you have the same or similar Greyhawk as mine. I have a 2016 Greyhawk 29MV. I purchased the 58" RecPro recliners last fall but have not got around to installing them.

If you don't mind I would like to know the detailed information as to how you fastened your Lazyboys to the slide platform surface. Also I have window valances that run down each side of the window. Your picture shows you don't have any. Did you remove yours, and if so was it difficult? Was it necessary to get the recliners closer to back so they don't hang over the front of the slide platform?

Any info you can give me would be very helpful and appreciated.
Thanks,
Butch C

The slide platform had 4 bolts installed from bottom up securing the couch in place. Carefully removed nut and couch, reinstalled nuts and snugged down to prevent loosing the bolts. Bolt pattern was larger then loveseat frame so I drilled and mounted a 1/2" plywood base 2" larger than the original bolt pattern. Allowed a cutout for electrical box mounted on slide. Drilled holes to match original bolt pattern and fastened loveseat and base to old bolts using another nut. Yes I removed the valance sides interfering with reclining. To have reclining space it needs to set very close to the slide inside edge. Hope this helps. Good luck

Thanks for the info but I am a little confused. If you were able to bolt the loveseat down using the original bolt pattern, why is the 1/2" plywood base even necessary? Couldn't you have just set the loveseat directly on the carpeted slide platform and bolted it down?
Thanks,
Butch C
