Nobody ever said you had to buy “RV” furniture. As long as whatever you buy fits through the door in the space. Quality of the furniture is up to you to decide.

We replaced our recliners with La-Z-Boy recliners. DO NOT buy any of the recliners below the Pinnacle series. The smaller and lighter ones are JUNK.

Skip the "RV" furniture. Extremely overpriced and quality is nothing to write home about. We replaced our recliners in our LS fiver immediately with theater seating upholstered in cloth. We got it at Wayfair for $700. Sofa will be more difficult due to the depth of most sofas. That was a challenge but we found one.

We plan to purchase quality furniture from a furniture store when ours starts looking bad. RV stuff is typically less quality and higher price.

How do you discern which ones are below the Pinnacle Series? Is it the price point below $759?

Also are the backs removable on all these to fit thru a narrow 5'er door? Unfortunately La-Z -Boy does not have a specific RV line and you can't rely on what a salesman may tell you to make a sale.

The backs are removable on the La-Z-Boy recliners. The Collage series is below the Pinnacle and are pure JUNK. The Collage chairs are slightly smaller than the Pinnacle and are just plain cheap. They will start to fall apart in a few months.

We originally bought Collage and after fighting with La-Z-Boy for a year and one repair due to collapsing foam, they refunded out cost against the more expensive Pinnacle series. We have had the Pinnacle recliners for about 2 years and they are doing great.

La-Z-Boy is sold through distributors. Find our who is the distributor in your area and check their BBB and reviews. For the SE Texas it is LEBCO and they are horrible. To get satisfaction, I had to go back to the manufacturers main office.

Take your measurements and go to the furniture stores in your area. You still may have to order but at least you can sit in them.
99% of the furniture in RV's is not meant for anything more than weekend and a week or two a year use.


Stated another way......(IMO) RV furniture is junk!...[emoticon]

Go to LazyBoy or other furniture store advertising recliners. Try before you buy.

As others have stated - make sure the backs are removable (it's pretty much "standard" - and easy to do).

BTW - thought the factory sofa would be a PITA to remove.....until I realized with a bit of "persuasion" the back came off also. Remove the fold-out bed assembly - and it's easy to do, preferably with a helper.

Factory recliners = gone!
Factory table & 4 chairs = gone!
Factory sofa = gone!

Didn't replace the sofa, but other replacements a *great* improvement over the factory stuff!!

My recliner from Williamsburg Furniture looks like it had a very bad sun burn, the spray on bonded leather is peeling off, while the wifes chair is still good, go figure

We've gotten really nice things at American Furniture that were made to come apart and go into RVs. Craig

Do you have to fasten down the new furniture? It appears the junk in our Montana is bolted to the floor on a steel frame under the furniture??? Don't want the furniture to be rearranged riding on our fine infrastructure.
