Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

RV sofas

Well, I just posted a question about prime spot for TV viewing under RV accessories, but thought I might put this question here...around campfire.(thought more gals might respond!)

Do you, that have MHs with 2 sofas that face each other in den area, wish that you could replace one sofa with recliners?( one, maybe 2 if you had room) and be able to turn them to watch TV over dash? Or do you not mind watching TV from the sofas, turning your heads to watch TV?

Some of you may have a Euro recliner/s.(instead of the second sofa or loveseat) Do the Euro recliners, move so that they can be positioned more in middle of room space when doing serious TV watching? then be moved back over where they normally sit?

My hubby and I are headed to Stone Mt.Ga for anniversary/birthday long weekend. Just the two of us.....no kids and we can't wait! Our teenage daughter thinks we our crazy to go off for our anniversary, camping. We think it will be fun and romantic to get away from the hustle and bustle of Holiday season, in the quiet peacefulness of Stone Mountain. (I'll have to throw in one full day of shopping!!! You can't go to Atlanta and not go to at least one major shopping mall!)Tom would be happy just spending half a day at Bass Pro Shop and the other half at Dick's Sporting Center.

Merry Christmas to All, Happy Holidays! and Happy New Year!

Well we don't have a MoHo but we don't have a Rv sofa either.   My opinion they just don't make good Rv funiture,  recliners or sofa's.   We gave a Sofa and 2 recliner rocker to Goodwill that had never been used.   Replaced it all with Lazy Boy recliners and a glider rocker.   Call and got replacement cost for Rv recliners and sofa,  the replacement cost will blow your mind,  it's a total rip off.   Good Luck and GBY....

P. S.  The  above is my opinion,  your taste could be totally different....

Agree totally with the $$$$ cost of RV furnature.  But the limited source for the RV furnature make the $$$even worse (shipping$$).   CW estimate runs almost $1K

My MH does not have a slid so I'm limited to a jack knife sofa. Want to buy a new sofa instead of reupholstering the one the one we have.     Cant find a source in this part of the USA.      Have tried RV dealers to see if they have a take out, no luck, they just want to sell you a new one.  But even buying a new one isn't easy, pay first and take what they give you. 

Anyone have a suggestion for obtaining a new jack knife sofa in the north Texas area.? .?

I've considered removing the big, heavy sofa bed with 2 chairs or a chair ottoman. I'm not a big fan of recliners because they never seem big enough. You seem to sit "on" them not "in them". Crazy huh! The sofa doesn't seem practical to me (espically the sleeping option). How often do you have over-night guests. If you get rid of the sofa you can move your furniture all around, especially if you have a free standing dining room table. Just MHO!
