Does anyone have a toy hauler with recliner's?I have been researching all makes and models and don't find any!Maybe we could have one custom made but don't really have the time for that. We hate our wrap around sofa and are thinking of tearing it out and replacing with the recliner's.

Absolutely no problem. Go to your local furniture outlet and pick up a couple of recliners that are comfortable to you (and ones that have a color your wife likes).

Get any recliner of your choice as they don't have to be narrow enough to fit through your rig's door. Drop your ramp, put them in the desired location and enjoy.

LOL, we looked long and hard for a toy hauler with the comforts of a regular 5th wheel. Some have recliners, but in the garage. If you are only gonna haul 1 bike or 1 atv then Open Range has a regular 5th wheel with a small garage on the back. Most regular toy haulers the living area is too small for a recliner as it would be in the way. We were going to try and get one of the toy haulers with the larger sliding glass doors between the garage and living area and put the recliners in the doorway. Also on most toy haulers the TV is in an ackward place too. In the end we opted for the comfort of a 5th wheel and just bought a Montana with 2 recliners and still leave the bike at home :<(

We purchased a couple of Ekornes Stressless recliners for our toyhauler. They have a relatively small footprint and are relatively light. We have had them three years now fulltiming and they show no signs of wear. Very comfy. They are however quite spendy. Our son put a new Lazyboy in his rig and had problems with the footrest mechanism breaking after two months of ownership. He was without his recliner for four weeks having warranty work done on it. Maybe it was bad luck but the parts that broke were plastic. Even though you might pay more for quality, if you fulltime being without your recliner sucks.

We found it's cheaper to replace furniture (mostly with LazyBoy) than to replace the whole 5er. Take some measurements to a furniture store and test each one to see what fits and is the comfortable. Most salespeople are happy to watch.

Wow- You guys are reading my mind. I've always thought about putting a recliner in my rig.

VERY, VERY common with Lazyboys. We have broken 2 foot rest on our Lazyboys recliners. We have gone to another brand.

Take a look at Bradd & Hall. We found a pair of very reasonably priced, locally made recliners there.

Thanks for all the responses!We have a 40 ft toy hauler so no problem with the room(if I remove the sofa) and the tv is up on the wall in the front so no problem there.We would even have room for small dinette.The sofa takes up the whole slide so I guess I would just have to be concerned with the weight of the new stuff.
