After a couple of months of hanging out on the couch Karin decided that it was getting kind of saggy and NOT too comfortable. The decision was made to replace it with a very comfy reclining chair with ottoman. The pros to this were: less of that dated fabric in the RV, a more comfortable seat and a roomier feel to the living area. The cons were: loss of available seat spaces for guests, loss of the guest bed and then of course the expense of the new chair.
We decided that the only overnight guests we were likely to have might be my grandkids and they could sleep in sleeping bags. As for the additional seating, we should still have plenty. We can still seat six people comfortably inside. We find it doubtful that we would really need to seat anymore than that. And the added cost? Worth it for being comfortable!
Here is what came with the RV. A reminder; just click on the pics to see 'em bigger!
Next came putting together the new chair. This is what we had purchased: Thank You Amazon! :) It was relatively easy to assemble. It came with a grand total of ten screws. Unfortunately there were no written instructions; only pictures. A couple of the steps took some serious playing around to figure out. Like that? Serious playing??? I live for that stuff. :)

The chair is super comfy. It rocks, swivels and reclines. The ottoman rocks too. This will mainly be Karin's chair because I have my computer set up on the other side on a little desk. This kinda sucks for me. Even though I'm a lot more comfortable now than I was. I may have to kick her out for movies and TV I'm thinking. Fair is fair, right???
