2106DS Couch replacement

I have a 2106 2106ds trailer. I want to change out the coach with a couch with recliners. I was wonder if anyone has done it before or know if it can be done.

Be interesting to see what response you get. I have seen many folks that have changed out the dinette on the larger Minnies but not the 2106. I have a 2106DS and would love to get rid of that jackknife sofa.

I was thinking maybe small recliner chairs would fit there but we haven't had the chance to see inside one yet, only a 2108DS with a dinette.

If you look under the sofa, you will see that the wheel well hump is an issue plus there is little in the way of support to install other types of furniture. Maybe someone that comes from a furniture or cabinet making background can come up with a custom set up but I don't think we can just buy one of the off the shelf pieces of furniture.

I've been thinking of something more like an ottoman that could have storage inside...easier to build

I thought that I had seen a posting where some one modified the kick panel on the jack-knife sofa with a hinge setup so that they could use the area under the couch for added storage. I tried looking for that thread but am unable to find it.


Has anyone modified their Micro Minnie with the sofa so that they could use the space under the couch for additional storage?

I havent modified the kick panel under the jack knife sofa, but looking into it, that kick panel is mounted under the sofa by 3 or more brackets and screws accessible by lifting tge sofa up to expose the screws. But looking behind that panel, there will be no room for storage with the wheel well and an electronics box [slideout motor controller?]. If, by removing the kick panel, you might have more floor space and transport area which will have to be cleared out once the slideout is extended. Effectively non-useable space.

I modified ours using a continuous hinge and four 1 1/2" corner brackets. I screwed the corner brackets to the plywood base under the sofa and mounted the continuous hinge to the kick panel and the brackets. I mainly did it for two purposes, to retrieve cat toys that end up behind the kick panel and because the screws that held the kick panel in place kept pulling out of the OSB backing plate of the kick panel. Here are a couple pictures. As Blubugger stated, there isn't much additional storage behind the kick panel.
