Well Doug I believe you are RIGHT. I pulled up a picture of the recliner from the 30 ft Signature on Colonial Airstream - and everything matches but the color. Impressed you found it! Thanks much. Price isn't TOO bad either.

We've had the Lafers for about 3 years. I've removed the covers and added more soft hi-loft foam, etc. and have made them tolerable, even made a bolster pillow. Biggest complaint is the footrest operation and reclining mechanism. Next biggest complaint is they are nowhere close to being wall huggers.

Hey Bob - could you go to goodwill and find an old ratty looking recliner with a good reclining mech and .... naw .... way too much work!


Well Doug found the ones Airstream is using. At his link they only have them in a dark coffee brown, but Glastop Home has them in 4 colors including Cinnemon & Taupe. $745 plus shipping. Or of course if you're in Elkhart Indiana you could probably pick them up. Surprise Surprise. Bet if I call Airstream they'll be $1200!
