Hi, did somebody figure to replace the sofa by two swivel chairs and keep the table ?

Chris.

Recliners in 2014 30ft

We just looked at the Recliner model in the 2014 30 ft Flying Cloud. My wife was comfortable however she is 5'3 I am 6'2 and Recliner was was too short and too unstable. We are ordering it and struggle with want the recliners but not sure they have the right product yet for us average size people. It is a $1,200 option only to take them out- at least one of them and replace it. If that is the case we might as well go with the couch at the present time. Heck, maybe a person just two Airstreams, one stock and one to modify.

OUT with the Goucho Couch - IN with the Recliners

We removed the Goucho in 2012 and replaced it with two recliner chairs. My wife is 5'5" and I'm 6' - they work great, give us more space in our '85 25-footer. We travel a lot and normally don't have visitors staying inside the rig with us - so it works well. The table between the chairs folds down and slides under the oak "credenza" that's under the front window.

We also removed the refrigerator bulkhead table section that normally goes under the street-side window where the stock AS folding table attaches. If you have kids - this is not the option for you. See the pix below...

If you're asking about recliners replacing dinette/lounge seating, extremely happy. Wish we had done it right away instead of suffering backaches and crooked necks for two years.

It's important to know we are retired and in our trailer 6 months a year.

Source of covering material

Can you please tell me where you got material for the cushions that so closely matches the chair?

Did you have the cushions done locally?

We got the cushions recovered locally at an upholstery shop. We picked out a material that Airstream uses (and many yacht, high end RV, and jet manufacturers use). It's Ultraleather, a synthetic product that is very soft and durable. I found many photos that show how Airstream does their stitch patterns and provided those to the local upholsterer so our sofa would look like it came from the factory. The material came from Gulf Fabrics (the upholsterer ordered it) and is Brisa Distressed 3024 Chamois. Two years later, we're happy with all of our decisions (recliner, table, curtains, and sofa redo). Russ

Click this link to see the specific fabric in the Ultraleather line that we chose:

Russ and Linda,

I'm awaiting a reply from Dennis concerning the cost of a conversion like yours. In the meantime I made the changes that are shown in my avatar.
Sorry we missed you guys at Alumaflamingo.

Excellent. Thank you for the kind reply. That is good fabric / material.

If only Airstream did not randomly strew the imbedments such as the heater randomly within the cabin and instead place them in clusters to make remodeling easier. That darn heater in the 27FB just clutters up the place. I wonder if there are some regs on spacing of fired units?

I've arranged and rearranged many times and have four workable floor plans that are more functional than the dinette.

Eddie Bauer - Love the look BUT

Those recliners are so comfortable looking. I've been toying with modifying the dinette table so that it would be narrower with folding leaves... then I decided to just make it about six inches narrower AND to get a second set of table legs so that I could set it down to coffee table height. (and lighten it so storing it would be easier.) In addition to having it coffee table height I'd make a cushion to put on top of it to flop my legs up on when watching TV. I'd also toss the funny wedge cushion next to the door and add some big pillows to make it really comfy.

Then last night I was channel surfing and hit QVC right as they were selling a bean bag chair with a rectangular liner that can be used as a floor mattress.... Hmm. Talk about an easy, quick, cheap, flexible, easily reversed modification. Bean Bag Chair.......
"Groovy Man!", said she toking gently, dreaming of Colorado.
"Where's the lava lamp?"
Could even make it myself if I ordered about 3 yards of matching fabric from the factory.

We want to go with this modification on our 2008 Classic 25fb since we are planning on get a queen to twin bed conversion and new flooring soon we might as well get the living area done.

I have some questions:
What are dimensions of the foldout table?
How wide is the table?
Can two sit opposite each other and put two normal sized plates or do you have to eat staggered or can two eat on just the one leaf pulled out or do you have to use the extension?
How wide and deep is the top on the table base?
How far out does the table extend with one table and when the extension is folded out?
How high is the table bottom to the floor?

Does the table frame mounted to the rear wall allow access to the electric sockets/TV satellite jumper?

Does the recliner stay in one position that allows you to eat and also swivel around to watch TV or do you have to adjust its position so as not to hit the table or wall. We are thinking of this recliner that only requires 2 1/2" distance from wall to recline and has built in foot rest.

Thanks

Kelvin
