Replacing sofa sleeper w/Recliner. How to remove from RV?

Recommended Posts

We are looking to remove the sofa sleeper from our Class A Windsor and replace it with 1 or 2 Stressless type recliners. If you buy the ones designed for RV's, do they come apart so you can get them into the RV? How about taking the sofa out? I don't need to remove the windshield do I? Thanks a lot for any advice.

 

PS: Suggestions on where to purchase the chairs we are thinking of?

We have both a Stressless recliner and one of their sofas. Both fit through our front door without any problems. We did wrap the sofa in heavy plastic and put tape on any possible protrusion around the door, but there were no real problems getting it in. Ours is only ~72" long so it could be stood up going through the door. Quite a few pieces (arms, etc) can be removed from both the chairs and sofas, if necessary, to make it easier to get them in.

Removed the sofa yesterday and put in one (of the 2 (backordered)) of the new recliners. Pull out sofa (older) came out with a rachet and set of sockets. Recliner went in in 2 pieces (shipped that way, no special order). Took longer to find the tools than to do the job.

 

Well, also added 2 more receptacles in Wiremold behind the center table and the 2nd recliner. That took an hour or so.

I have pulled out sofas from 2 different motorhomes. Also put the sofa back in one MH when I went to sell it. I had to turn them on edge (not vertical) and they came out the door easy. Well they are heavy, but fit through the door fine. Putting a new one back in, well it depends on the size. Need to measure carefully before buying. The sofas did have to be unbolted from the floor.

There was no way our sofa-sleeper would fit through the door opening, plus, that thing was really heavy. The back folded forward to make into the bed so that meant there were two pivots. I turned it over and removed the bolts that were the pivots. We then had two manageable pieces that went through the door e-z-p-z,


Good Luck - we don't miss that sofa at all.

We replaced our dual recliner-love seat sofa. Backs came off the recliners and was able to take unit out in 3 sections. Pretty heavy. Replaced with an apartment sized sleeper. It's 82" wide but the trick was to find something that would fit in a 29" door. The apartment sized sofa was no problem...it was close. We love the new look. Brighter fabric and eleminated some of that dark leather-like look.
