Theater seats vs sofa

We have a 2017 Thor Quantum WD31 with a jack knife sofa. Given the awkward viewing angle of the TV in the main area (located in the bunk space), we would like to replace the existing sofa with two zero-clearance swivel recliners. The challenge so far in our research is finding recliners that will fit into the existing sofa space. The sofa is 70 inches long, and the smallest chairs we have found so far are listed at 28 inches wide for each - 56 inches for the pair with no wiggle room. That leaves just 14 inches total clearance for two chairs to try and swivel. Has anyone else done what we are contemplating? Advice?

The spacing might work out for you...
Did you ever really figure to spin the chairs, so that the two of you are directly facing each other?

No, not facing each other, but able to swivel a few degrees to the left to somewhat align visually with the screen. The other question I have is if anyone can recommend a location that did the installation for them. When I open our sofa, it appears there are just two anchor braces, one at each end, with the open floor space in between unencumbered. So, would think it not too difficult to attach chairs to the flooring for support. We would keep the sofa and reinstall if needed for resale - it would cover any holes from the swivel mounts. Make sense?

I think it would be pretty straight forward to "Lag bolt" a new one to the floor. Just look at what was used from the factory. I would like to do the same, but we take our Grand daughters out with us every summer. That would take away one of their beds.
