So we went today to our local dealer and looked at a 27EB, 27 FC FB, 27 Serenity FB, and a 28 Serenity. Happy joy, the 27FBs taped out to 92" in the bedroom, plenty of space for the RQ Tempurpedic. Te 28 taped out at 87", a little tight.

The big surprise was the couches. In all four units, my wife DQ'd them because they were so uncomfortable. Flat, non supportive.

So I guess I need to think about recliners. A couple of questions:

Are the Classic 27FB couches better than the ones we saw?

Was/is the Classic offered with recliners? The salesman gave me copies of the order sheets, and I don't see a Classic offered with recliners.

I'm thinking 30 with recliners is the way to go.

As our table is easily removable in our EB, the solution is much simpler. Just a simple "narrower" seat fabricated that is the same width as the side cushions (fits across the back on existing seat supports) and gives a comfortable sit. DW has made a trapezoidal foam cushion (that fits across the back) that we use on the sides and in the FB as well. Sometimes we like to just leave the rear EB door open and watch movies with a breeze. Of course, the easy solution is to simply retire to the FB and watch the vids there.

Should have added more detail regarding the couches. In the EB, the couches are 1-1.5" taller/higher off the floor than in the FC or International. The extra height left my wife's feet swinging like little Edith Ann's in the big rocking chair. She's 5'4" tall -- about average I guess. The cushions in the EB and FC were hard and uncomfortable. The International's were definitely better.

We definitely liked the EB rear hatch but we don't have large cargo to carry in the back, so we're willing to trade the hatch for more comfortable seating. That's what led me to ask for comments about the Classic.
