Need a little help.

I have seen several threads on replacing sofas in our RV's and I am looking at replacing the sofa/bed in our 2016 31L Chateau with recliners. Having trouble finding a correct size.
The sofa in there now at the widest outside to outside on the armrest is 66 1/2 inches and that is how wide the space is that it sits in in the slide. I cant seem to find the correct size recliners to fit, they are either a little wider or quite a bit narrower. Any suggestions?

Thank you Axis Earl'

This is what I am looking at
https://www.recpro.com/recpro-charle...oaAmEsEALw_wcB

Here are some dimensions.
I have 66 1/2" in width to work with, and from the wall to the end of the floor that slides is 33 1/2" in depth.

The sofa/sleeper a full fold out bed not a jack knife is 35" from back to front and sits 3" from the wall, sofa over hangs a few inches.
If you need any more measurements let me know.

Just to let you all know I ordered the sofa/recliner today from REC PRO. Talked to them on the phone to get some more measurements and we confirmed it will fit. Some of the recliner like the foot rest will over hang the slider floor but that is not an issue.

The question was will the frame fit on the floor with the recliner set 3" from the wall, and it will with about an inch to spare.
The frame is 22" X 22" and with the recliner set 3" from the wall that makes the back of the frame 10" from the wall and then just measure another 22" forward and you have where the front of the frame will be.
In my case the floor is 33 1/2" deep from the wall to the edge of the floor. Measure 10" out from the wall and that leaves 23 1/2" of floor left to the edge, and then take off another 22" to front of the frame and that leaves me with about 1 1/2 left to the edge of the floor. About 6" of the recliner will hang over mostly the foot rest.

I will let you know how it goes when it gets here, probably wont get shipped till after the 20th of this month.

The reclining love seat from RECPRO arrived today Took about 2 hours to take out the sofa/sleeper and install the reclining love seat. It fit just fine with room to spare on the sides, there are six pads under each section that sit on the floor, the front pad over hangs about 1 inch,I could get it to fit on the sliding floor if i take down that fabric covered window trim that would allow me to push the recliners back, but its a non issue. There is about 3 inches from the front pad to the next pad so the front is supported fine. I will take some pics tomorrow and post them.

Correction to what I typed earlier. There are 8 pads under each recliner not 6.

Those look pretty nice, and the delivery time is outstanding! I had to wait 7 weeks for my furniture to be shipped, and then another 10 days for transit. You did good!

Thank you, and they are so much more comfortable than the sofa. Was worried about the install and having to do some modifications to make them fit, but it was pretty simple and had plenty of room. I have them attached to the slide floor way better than Thor had the sofa attached. Thor had 5 mounting points on the sofa, I have 11 on this set up, they should stay in place.

Gritz, I have not looked into that yet, but plan on doing something about it. Hopefully this week I can look into it and will update with what I figure out.
