Please tell us that this couch comes with it's own refreshment fridge and food bar. Please also tell where you purchased it from. Our foam is no good in our 242RESL and this looks so much more comfortable.

Ha... well, no, I'll still leave to walk across the room to the fridge for snacks & drinks, but somehow I'll manage.

Seriously... I saw these in a furniture store about a month ago when I was buying my brother a new chair, and they are COMFORTABLE!! Not only that, but they are wall-hugging power recliners that can be set in any position... so they can sit right against the wall in my slide where my others did. The headrest is also power adjustable.

The main complaint I have with my rig's supplied recliners is that there is no place to store anything (like the remotes, magazines, laptop or iPad), no place to set my drink... and when I pull the recline handle, it's all or nothing. Either fully reclined, or fully straight up. Plus, when I go RV'ing, it's just me. I don't need seating for 4 people.

The only bad part is... I waited too long. I wanted it in brown, but can only find them now in black. It's a discontinued item from Lane Furniture called the Transformer. It's also available as a wider 'sofa' version with seating for 3... and when you don't need the center seat for someone, the upper portion folds down to make a table with a power port. (shown below)






You can find them at various furniture stores here & there. I first found it at a place called Haynes Furniture in Virginia Beach, VA.... and their price for the loveseat version I got is around $1,200. That said, since I'm not in VA... I ended up ordering mine from Amazon.com for a little more, but no tax & free shipping. By the time I figured up the cost of gas for my truck to drive up to VA & back, meals, and a hotel bill... it was just about the same, so I ordered it.

I have intentions of doing something similar. The supplied couches aren't very comfortable. My concerns with the 3750FL is going to be getting the new stuff through the door. The main door is the only access and I don't think something like this will fit. I'll have to do some measuring and shopping to see what's going to work.

I was just looking at upgrading the seat cushion foam as ours is severely lacking. It would be nice to swap out but has anyone removed the couch or J section to see if its possible?

Also has anyone upgraded the foam in a couch? I've tracked down a few places and some are really expensive for foam depending on density.

Will you really be able to get those chairs into the RV? Seems like you would have to remove the slide-out, install the chairs, and then replace the slide-out.
