You cain't but your Thor MC dealer can. Plant 750 interior furniture is usually sourced from LCI. Remember each Thor factory is independently managed (what happens at Jackson Center - Airstream, has nothing to do with Wakarusa's most expensive product - Tuscany). Each and every Thor MC made is ordered by a dealer before construction is started.

OK, here's what I'm doing,... ordering the theater seating from thorÖ. it's made for the raised floor, exact match to the rest of the coach, cup holders and foot rests..it is the one for the 34r hurricane... I know this way is not for everybody, but what I wanna do, just another option...

if you look at the second pic, you can see why the fold out beds are so un comfortable..the theater seats angle down towards the back on the seat... and the sofa bed is flat, that makes you lean forward more, and then it makes the back rest at too much angle to the seat... I come away with a back ache after sitting there

Maria says she has no problem sitting on the recliner. Yes her feet dangle a bit but if sitting on it we both always have it in recliner mode

I have the Miramar 35.2 which has the same layout as your Hurricane. We had the original theatre seats removed and replaced with Thomas Payne seismic theater seats. Difference is night and day, electric, fully reclining, heated, massage, etc. Just need to add the electrical outlet.

We have a 2018 Miramar 35.2. When we purchased it new the existing theatre seats were broken. We didnt like them anyway, very uncomfortable, limited leg lift, didnt lay flat and were manual. We had them include the Thomas Payne units in our original deal and are glad we did. If they had the trifold bed in stock I would have replaced the existing jack knife couch as well, but will be doing that in the near future.

The new ones are extremely comfortable. You can tell the original ones were made very cheaply. The leatherette on these are soft compared to the originals. For us it was a no brainer.

Ours has the cream color interior but the new seats are oxford tan. I have no taste when it comes to decor but my wife really liked it and thought it matched well. The coach is on our site down the shore, I will measure it when I go this weekend. I can tell you my wife does not notice any difference in height. They are about 2 inches more toward the center of the coach but that was to allow for the full recline. Does not affect the walkway when slides are in.
