Weíre planning to replace the jack knife sofa with recliners in our Freedom Traveller A27. Nothing under but storage ( and very little of that). Does anyone have experience with this brand?

https://shop4seats.com/rv-furniture/...h-console.html

Weíve got 68Ē of space. These need 67Ē. I havenít looked at attachment to floor. Wondering about quality.

I did Shop4Seats awhile back and I'm very happy with their furniture. Here's a thread where I put photos of my conversion:

I replaced the dinette with two recliners and also replaced the cockpit seats.

How did you anchor them to floor. Iíve got mine in. Just havenít secured them. If I screw them to the floor, the same way the jack knife was, do you figure Iíll be ok. As long as screws arenít too long?

We didn't anchor ours and haven't had any problems.

Jerry,
They look comfortable enough for a nap nd a half!
Ours is at the dealership for Winter storage, and the swap out of the uncomfortable couch; for the recliners.

We had ours bolted in and kept the seatbelts available.
We traded our 2016 Vegas 24.1 in this past winter on a SOB (2019 Nexus Viper 27V). It is 3 ft longer with almost 1 ft of that in the shower! It has a layout like the Vegas 27.7 but without the drop down bed (we only used it 6 times in the 4 years we owned the Vegas).
Wishing the best in your travels to all on Thor Forum. Stay Safe.

Ours have wood strips bolted to the floor and the seats are bolted to the wood.

recliners

I don't think I saw anyone speak about hooking up powered recliners. I'm considering it still, but wondering if the power source needs to go through the inverter so that when dry camping you can operate the recline feature using just the batteries.

Our recliners are powered. They are just connected to the normal 120V wiring--our coach doesn't have an inverter. Thus if we want to recline while boondocking we have to fire up the genny.

Ours will be powered, and will be "inverterized"...

So if you want to sleep in one, how do you turn the genny off after operating the chair? My aim is to eliminate:
1) climbing the ladder to go to bed;
2) getting down from the overhang in the middle of the night to use the throne!

Well in our use case: we don't because we rarely, if ever, sleep in one. In addition: my goal with the recliners I purchased was to keep the center position for seating and also allow for the recliners to still be used as a couch for sleeping. So if its just one person sleeping on the recliners they just lie down on it like the couch that they are.
