I took out my couch and put in two la-z-boys not hard but you need to check out what is under or behind couch first. The only thing under mine was the solenoid and wires and a cover over, that I took out and painted. I used the ends of the arms of the sofa as a templet and made storage areas with a lift off top a good place to set a drink or the remote. Good camping Rand

It is the perfect do it yourself project. Only tool needed is a Phillips screw driver.

Do you know what a learning experience is? A learning experience is one of those things that says "You know that thing that you just did? Don't do that."

The best thing we have ever done to our trailer (I have a bad back). The gaucho was an uncomfortable couch and a more uncomfortable bed. I removed the gaucho and side arms, very simple. There wasn't room for the fold up table with the recliners installed so I removed it alongside with a shelf assembly and cabinet, cut the cabinet in half, and moved everything aft.

I had a couple recliners in a home theater and I just moved those into the trailer. I haven't secured them yet as I plan on replacing the floor. But they don't appear to have moved at all after a few thousand miles. A nice bonus is that the former cabinet is just the right size to store two Airstream folding camp chairs.
