    Recliner sofa change out

    After talking with my dealer they said to contact GD on the cost of/feasibality of changing out the recliner sofa with a sleeper sofa in my 369RL. Of course this was the same answer I received when I asked about obtaining doors for the upper cabinet area in the bathroom.

    so
    1) What is the cost/feasibality of changing out the recliner sofa with a sleep sofa?
    2) How does one obtain a set of doors for the upper cabinet area in the bathroom?

    Great Questions

    We would also be interested in changing out the recliner sofa. I will watch this conversation and hopefully GD will respond.

    We contacted GD directly and they shipped us one cabinet door. I might check into getting a second one as it would make that space look cleaner. Although the lower shelf is where we set the toilet paper because there didn't seem to be a good pace to mount the tp holder.

    As far as the doors are concerned I contacted our dealer. They had doors shipped to us--two of them--but it cost us $175 for them.

    Keep us posted on whether they can get a sofa through the door. I would be interested in knowing. I think these things are sometimes built around some of the furniture. A friend of ours pretty much had to destroy a sofa in order to get it out of his Wildcat.

    Before we bought the 369 we had only seen it with the sofa bed and thought that there was no other option. So I was surprised to find that our dealer only orders the Solitudes with a recliner sofa!

    We asked the dealer if it could be exchanged and they said no... unless we purchased the sofa bed and paid for shipping from the factory. They did have another suggestion... a blow up mattress that is placed in top of the recliner sofa. Click image for larger version.

    Guess we'll be using a blow up mattress on the floor in front of the the recliner sofa when we have overnight company!

    I was really hoping to avoid the air mattress as it will probably be my wife and I using it to sleep. Her parents (82 & 80) want to go with us, and I don't see them using the air mattress.

    The Sofa Recliners will come out in 3 pieces and there should not be any problem putting a sofa bed in now. They are bolted down to the floor. We watched them install these at the factory and the furniture was one of the last things that they put in.

    Navigator ... Don't buy the blow up bed!!!

    Our dealer recommended it to us as well and we purchased it ($300)... No returns allowed! Well the problem is the cushions do not come off the sofa; therefore the sofa is way too tall. The end part of the blow up curves way up instead of laying flat as shown in the pix. we now carry two plastic containers and turn them upside down to support the top part of the mattress, using the taller end as the "head" of the bed. Wish we had waited!!
