Remove Jack a knife Bed

How do I remove the Jack Knife bed in my 2017 ACE 30.1 I'm going to replace it with Tri-fold bed. It looks like 4 bolts and it's out but, I would like to hear from someone that has done it. I hate to give good money to Camping World to install it when I think it's something I can do.

I removed the Bed/sofa on my Vegas which was on the slide and installed a dinette in its place. As best I can remember, it was bolted down and the bolts went thru the floor of the slide at least on the seat belts. I also took the bed apart to get it out. Once you get it unfolded and taken apart it should be easy to see how to remove it. For easy removal out of coach; it is a two person job.

I removed the jackknife sofa in my ACE 30.1 last week to replace it with RecPro recliners. It as simple as removing the 4 lag screws that hold the sofa frame down to the slide. I then took the end pieces off of the sofa (5 screws on each end) to make it easier to get out of the coach. I’m not sure you can get it out without removing the end pieces.
