Well, I really wanted one of the Ekornes Stressless recliners but wasn't going to spend $1,300 for something for occasional use. So the wife talked me into ordering a knock-off (Benchmaster)off EBay...about $400, free shipping. Actually, we like it. It's comfortable and should last as long as we are likely to keep this rig.



Actually, we like it so much we ordered another one for the house.

After reading your post it got me thanking how my recliner that came in my 36G is not really all that comfe. It must be made for someone under 5ft. Do not have a lot extra room for huge recliner. Any idea's

I replaced my recliner in my prior Journey with a Lazy-boy. Took the hoop off the recliner which came in the Journey and mounted it to the Lazy-boy. Fit perfectly. I could then still mount it to the floor for travel.

Don...great idea. We've got three Lazy Boys in the house but all of them are bit big for the motorhome.

Bob: agree that the OEM Winne recliner is small. I'm only 5'7" and my feet hung off the foot rest some. At least with the Euro recliner and separate ottoman, you can move the ottoman to whatever location fits you. You can get larger Euro recliners but we didn't want it to take up too much room in the motorhome. This one is just about right.

Don't get the Ekornes Stressless chair.

I have one, and it's too darn comfortable. I can't watch TV at night without dozing off.

Dirk:

I hear that. I was trying them out at a local furniture store and they are absolutely fabulous. If I live long enough to retire and spend more time in a motorhome, I will have one for sure. Butter soft leather, headrest that adjusts as you recline....you know.

It only costs a little bit more to go first class.

Yea, I went out and bought a 'small' Lazy-boy recliner. Nice thing is the backs come off, so it was easy to get into the rig.

The chair is about the same width as the OEM recliner, but with the taller back it did hit the dinette and wall when sitting in it w/o pulling it out.

So when I wanted to recline I did just that -- pull it out from the wall.

Which model did you get I'm waiting until I get back from KW to get a Monterey, they are out of stock in black with the dark base. How sturdy are they, I'm 6'3" 260 so need something that will hold up.
