Why compromise?

What I really want is a special edition where instead of AS teaming up with Eddie Bauer or Tommy Bahama they team up with Lazy Boy, joking not joking, lol. Until then, this is how I roll. Thought you all might enjoy the photo. I store my wonderful Lazy Boy Maverick in my tow vehicle (it comes apart in two pieces and fits nicely in the back of my Tahoe).

There is no need to compromise, if you are willing to pay for what you want.

Plenty of folks have ordered new Airstreams with room to install one or two recliners. Others have had recliners installed in their modified units:

There are a number of after-market firms that will do the work, and do it well.

Just a question of money, planning and time.

Good luck,

Peter

Hi

At least for us:

Number of camping days that have involved more than two people (no we aren't counting dogs in this case): 0

Number of camping days that have involved the recliners (both of them): > 300

Indeed seating *is* what moved us from one model to another.

Ken at Airstream of Scottsdale showed me a brand new modern/2020? recliner they were installing for someone, it was awesome. Wish I had a photo of it.

I also saw a gentleman the other day with a 25fb who had removed one corner of his dinette booth and the dinette and added something similar to an Eames Lounge Chair.

I have the Lazy Boy from my former life and just couldnít part with it. Iíd like more info on whatever Ken had in his office at Airstream of Scottsdale though, the recliner was a beauty.

I am in the middle of an installation of this:
https://www.recpro.com/recpro-charle...-with-console/

As I progress I will be updating this thread:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f38/...-a-195228.html

But first - flooring. Then I will be out of commission for a while so the sofa project won't get much attention until July or August.

RecPro has been great to deal with, even if their shipping service has been spotty. Two of the three components arrived damaged. RecPro shipped out a complete replacement sofa in one day. Hopefully I will get the two pieces I need out of that shipment.

Thanks for the RecPro link . . . looks great. Instead of levers on the side to recline, they say that there are parachute handles inside the armrests to use instead. Have you tried reclining this unit with body pressure alone? Our recliner at home is electric. Nice to be able to fine-tune the angles of support. Did you consider any electric models?

Thanks,

Peter

Hi

Stock recliners in the 30' Classic. Indeed the center section *has* been highly customized. Eventually I'll get around to doing a post on that. Right now it is in it's normal mode. Piled with junk in all the little custom cubby holes.
