Love how our recliner update took shape. Use pvc sheeting to cap couch/bed end.

Looks great. How do you secure the chair while traveling? What is the table between your chairs? Where did you find the PVC sheeting? Sorry for all the questions. We are in the process of completing the same.

We looked into RecPro in Indiana, but before we drove down there from Michigan we thought the new Kathy Ireland models at our local Camping World. They looked the same and after trying them we thought they were very comfortable. They are fairly light and should at least get us through a couple of seasons and prove our concept. If they don't last and we like the set up, then bumping up to stressless brand will be next. They are only $375 each if you add the 2-year unconditional replacement guarantee ($50). They sit on a rubber-backed rug and we've added felt feet to their bases. They seem stable enough, but can easily be moved into the "kitchen" area for travel if they bounce around significantly. We haven't hauled to test yet. We sourced the PVC board at HomeDepot - it's back in the lumber/trim section. It's cut and sanded with woodworking material. The table is from a local (Grand Rapids, MI) Scandinavian design furniture shop. It was kind of pricey ($230) considering. Probably something on Ikea would be similar. We figured we saved on chairs why not get something nice for the table. Again it's welded brushed metal base with a glass top. So the base will go on one bed and the glass on the other for travel.

We did a similar replacement but our chairs have a separate footstools. Having the detached foot rest is a bit of a pain. We like that your’s are attached to the chair. On the positive side, our chairs weren’t expensive and they are 360 degree swivel and rockers.

We use ratchet straps to secure the chairs together and bolted rings to the floor to hook additional straps to the floor. Easy to setup and very secure. We have taken a couple of trips with some very bad roads...Oklahoma and Colorado. Popped a couple of ceiling rivets on both trips but the chairs didn’t move.

I have looked at a way to mount a flip up table between the chairs. I like your approach as we could move the table to the sofa, facing out, or to the back.
