Question Stupid Question

As in most RV's the entry door is kinda narrow. Now for the stupid question.............

I have a 2008 Jayco Eagle 341 RLQS. If i wanted to put in a new couch how would I get it inside my RV?

There are no stupid questions...
Was asking myself the same thing when looking at used TTs before I bought mine

Honestly? Dissemble the couch or remove a slider.

John is correct. RV couches usually have an easily removable back, in my experience.

Never thought about removing the slide. Bet that's a real task.

eh.. its not too bad if you take your time. You can have them off in about 30 min or so, with the right equipment.

This is the rub. Who has the right equipment just laying around to remove a slide? I guess you could rent it maybe? But I would do absolutely everything else before trying that myself; and that includes abandoning the project...

Do you think you can get the sofa through the door if you set it upright on one of it's ends, put the back or bottom through the door first and then turn it to allow the rest of it to come in/out? RV sofas aren't generally as long as a residential length sofa so, when set on end, they should clear the doorway in height.

If the sofa is longer than the height of your doorway, or you have a stairwell inside your doorway, then you might have to resort to trying one of the methods mentioned above.

I have a reclining chair here at home that's wider than my doorway and that's how I get it through.
