Quality of Furniture

I have ordered a new Jayflight 28RLS. It is being mfg. on 5/13 so the excitement is growing! This unit has the two recliners in the rear by the large window. My question is this--how sturdy are those recliners? I am a pretty big guy------Will I be comfortable in the chairs? Are they strong enough to hold a heavier person?

They are a tad narrow, and are so so as far as construction goes. I am about 250 and have no issues. Depending on how often you use your RV will determine how long they last.

Enjoy your new RV !

Most complaints I hear are on the width. Don't expect a Lazyboy. I do know they have several different quality of recliners and of course that is determined by which model you get.

Our Eagle recliners are OK.

Do you happen to know if I can upgrade to a better chair? Mine is not being mfg. for another week.

they are good enough to hold my 250 lbs, but I would not get too carried way with them. Sitting straight up and down will keep them intact, I can see problems if you are a leaner to one side or another.

Same as the other posters. They'll hold you, you just won't be comfortable with the snugness. I gave one away and brought in a very comfortable leather Lazyboy from our house. The other one usually sits in the corner with "stuff" on it. Bought a new one for the house. I'm happy and DW got a new piece of furniture. It's only money.

I sat in them at a RV show and decided they were not acceptable for my new order. They are too narrow for me and would drive me nuts. We opted for Theatre seating instead

I don't know but a call to your dealer would be the only way to find out.
