Recliners

We have a 2014 23ft Intl trailer that we have taken coast to coast in North America (approx 40,000 miles). Before our next big trip, it is time to change the benches in front to more comfortable chairs / recliners. We have read some posts about what others have done but we could use some more information.
Size is key in a smaller trailer. Suggestions on brand of recliner?
Is this work we could do ourselves? We are handy.
How do we anchor them to the floor?
We live in Ontario Canada so would prefer to source here due to the value of the CDN$ right now.
Photos would be appreciated.

Lambright Recliner. Here is one site that sells them but several just contact the manufacturer. No price difference though. I'm planning to get one of these covered with matching Ultraleather.

Putting in a pair of recliners is somewhat dependent on what is under the bench seating, furnace or convert/charger or water heater, and if it is reasonable to move them.

Our 25 RB was fairly open in front with the benches out, so we asked Airstream Service to install the components from their 30' Airstream Recliner model in our 25, and build a cabinet over of converter/charger.

Here's some in-process photos.

Factory Service replace sofa with recliners

2015 Classic with sofa that we would like to replace with swivel recliners. We would like the factory to do the work, but a couple of questions. Not certain that we would use the Villa model recliners, but like the Euro style, hopefully some more options. Would there be room for small storage compartment on each side of the recliners? Does anyone use recliner with an ottoman? What do you do with the sofa after it is removed? I have already talked briefly with AS and they don't want it, is there a market for it?
Thanks

This looks great. My wife and i were waiting for the right recliner model to come to the market before we bought. Too bad Airstream killed that option, but yours looks great!

replaced sofa

Follow up on our sofa replacement. We ended up using the Villa recliners, although the recliners are black, the sofa and dinette are beige, it still looks good to us. Airstream built and installed the counsel in the center, and did an outstanding job along with some warranty work. Thanks Airstream and Artie in particular. Found a new home for the removed sofa, and everybody is happy, no hate here.

Nice looking RBS. You should sell the sofa. Interestingly I had Villa make me a Classic sofa recently. I should have considered buying one from someone like you.
