Wanting L-Shaped couch removed

Without checking I think it's a 2006 Designer 36 RLTS, (I'm old so bear with me)
It has an L-shaped couch that has a fold out bed. I was wanting to take this out and replace with some else, how much of a pain is this process

Thanks for your time

Not sure about your unit but I have the L-shaped sofa with pullout bed. The non-bed portion is screwed to the wall and to the bed portion. I didn't check to see how the bed portion is retained but I would guess screws through the back and into the wall.

If you have the underseat storage area in the extension look inside for screws. The couch is two pieces in mine.

I have the same unit as yours. The short end of the L couch has pulled loose twice which causes the opposite slide to hit the couch and not close. I had it repaired twice under warranty and it is OK at present. I was wondering if others have had the same problem?

Mine broke the screws and came loose. Until I got home I had to lift the end of the unit so the DS slide could go underneath. They were just the cheap construction screws that are used wherever a staple isn't used. I replaced them with a #10 screw of the same length and put them back in close to where the old ones were.

We have the same floor plan (i.e., L-Shaped Couch) and have had the same problem, DS slide floor hitting end of couch inhibiting the slide from closing / pushing the ODS open.

We had it fixed under warranty.

As added protection to ensure it doesn't happen again I made 2 - 1/2" boards wrapped with carpet and always put one under each foot of the couch's L-Section after the ODS is in (retracted) to ensure there's proper clearance for the DS slide floor to go under the couch.

I remove them before extending the ODS slide.

We have considered removing the L-Shaped Couch and 2 recliners and replacing them with an 80" Tri-fold sofa and theater seating.
As we get older we're finding it harder and harder to move the recliners into position on setup and back against the wall in preparation for travel.

Any of you with similar floor plans have thoughts or ideas on this?

Thanks

We have considered removing our L-Shaped coach and replacing it with a Tri-Fold Sofa also.
I don't think it would be that big of a pain to remove the L-Shape couch.
I've looked at it closely and it seems like the couch would come out fairly easily by just removing the screws. The L-Shape portion is attached to the Tri-Fold bed portion, so each would be removed separately (L-shape portion then the Tri-Fold bed portion). I guessing the backs would come off to make it easy to fit the pieces through the door.

Camping World has a Destination Tri-Fold Sofa that comes in 80". This also comes in 62"; 68" and 72" lenghts.

This is the largest Tri-Fold Sofa I've been able to find.

The space in our floor plan would be ~96" once the L-Shaped couch is removed. So, depending on what size couch you get, there might be room on either side of the couch to put a small end table.

Hope this helps.

WE took ours out and just use recliners. Plenty of room now and can look at the TV straight on. If you get theater recliners can you see the TV from the ODS wall?

Just a caution. The trifold sofa in our smaller unit was very uncomfortable to sit on. We never tried sleeping on it. Replaced it with recliners.

How did you get access to the screws and where are they located? I need to remove the L section and the only 2 screws I seen were in the box under the couch and are screwed into the wall just above the floor. I have not removed them yet.
