Our 31.5RLTS came with swivel rockers and no straps. The Tech who gave us the walk thru said to just put them back to back up against the stationary table that is between them and they will be fine....... WRONG!!!!
When we got to our first stop on the way home the chairs had both fallen over and put holes in the side walls on each side of the trailer. I was so mad and disappointed until I came up with a fix that works. I put electrical blanking covers over the holes on each side and they are sort of behind the chairs and just look like an access cover. I'd still rather not have the holes of course.

As for transporting them now. I put a pillow over the table between the chairs and lay them down over the table facing down so that the tops of the chair backs are touching each other and I run a bungee from one chairs steel leg to the other. This has worked well for us.

Never knew until this thread what that strap on the couch was for, if only the tech who did our walk through was a bit more knowledgeable about such things.

Chair strapes

I have a 30.5 RLS with the same type of chairs. our couch has two strapes one on either side of the couch. the chairs get tipped onto the couch, so the back of the chair sits on the couch and the front of the chair, that would normally hit your legs as your seated sits in the floor and the base faces away formthe couch. The strape runs through the loops on the bottom of the chairs and attached to the strapes on the couch. Maybe look under the side of the couch on the inside of the cushion for strapes.

Our last fifth wheel and our current both have had recliners. We have never strapped the chairs down using the "D" rings in the floor. What we do is turn them sideways so they are parallel to the length of the trailer with the back of one of the chairs snug against the opened foot rest of the other one. They seem to lock together that way. We then put our lamps in the seats and surround them by the sofa pillows. Nothing has moved or jumped out of place so far. I'm not saying to use the straps but so far we never have and have been using this method for at least three years now.
