Well, we pulled the new couch out of our 2008 30" Classic; Praline fabric NOT ultra suede.

That's the good news. The bad news is that it is in Shady Cove, Oregon.

If you are willing to research the shipping/cost then you can make me an offier I can't refuse.

The big issue will be getting it wrapped/covered such that it will survive the shipping. Perhaps a moving company would be best suited for this.

PM or email me and we can go on with this if you are interested.

Jim

I just purchased an Airstream which had the couch removed and 2 smaller size lazy boys and a table with a lamp in between. We think it's great. We do, however, have a dinette which can be made into a bed. Happy Airstreaming.

Replacement "Couch"

I suggest you go to craigslist and do a search for an Ikea futon. I found one that fits perfectly in my 61 Safari. The seat portion was orginally supported by two 8' legs which I replaced with longer legs to fit my AS. The seat portion now slides out and the back rest then lays flat and makes a very nice bed. I support the back rest with velcro when in coach mode. I discarded the frame/arm rest portion. I would be happy to send pics if you send me contact info.

Ikea makes a wide variety of futon styles and colors by the way.
