I also have a 30.1 purchased about a month ago and I'm ---> <--- that close to replacing the couch with this:
De Leon Double Recliner
It should fit just fine. That little shelf behind the standard couch is just screwed to the wall and should be really easy to remove. Besides, the double recliner has it's own cupholders so I wouldn't miss the ones in the shelf.
I'm still double-checking measurements but it should work. That site also has some fancier couches as well..
