Still there, although the table legs do rub on the back of the headrest of the lounger. I will make a small mount to re arrange their position.

Is this recliner in 3 pieces? I am really considering taking out dinette table and adding recliners. How did they bolt it to floor? Thanks

Yes, there is a right chair, a left chair and we chose a center console. The tech said he had to figure out which to fit in first, but then they just fell into place and were bolted to the floor of the slide. With two seatbelts set up.

Thanks Doc This is what I have been thinking about since it's only 2 of us. We can relax and not have to deal with sore backs sitting at our dinette seats. I will take measurements and contact company.

Will the new recliners fit thru your door, or do you have to remove the slide out?

we have 2014 vegas and are wanting to do the same mod.

When you replace the sofa with the recliners do you lose the storage space behind the sofa where the tables are stored?
thanks

how wide is the sofa in the Axis/Vegas 24.1?

How wide is the outer arm to outer arm sofa in the 24.1? I love the look of what Doc did, but I thought the 24.1 was only 60" wide? Looks like the chairs with the center piece would be at least 66 or 68", Doc can you help me out? Also, I tried to find the specific chairs on line, and it appears CW does not carry them anymore. Anyone know who else does?

Thanks!

Vegas sofa swap

I just had to recline the new chair fully to get them through the door.
