However, finding the right chair to fit your RV that also fits your taste and your budget can be difficult. That’s why, with this review, finding the right recliner for your RV will be that much easier.
Replacing RV Couch with Recliners
Replacing a standard RV couch with recliners, whether they were made for RV use or not, can be a difficult undertaking. However, if you take it slow and make sure to measure everything several times, then you should be able to replace your RV couch with little trouble, though it will take some time and research.
Review of the RV Recliners
Who this is for: This is best for anyone that wants a sofa to replace the couch in their RV but you want your new furniture to have reclining functions.
Why I like it: This reclining sofa by La-Z-Boy offers not only powered recline but has individual control for both sides. The console in between the two chairs remains stead to provide support for drinks stored in cup holders, etc.
The upholstery of this RV double recliner couch is a soft but durable leather-type in a dark brown color. It will clean up easily and be somewhat resistant to dirt, stains, and spills if they are taken care of sooner rather than later.
For the La-Z-Boy brand, the price of this recliner is also very reasonable. For the size, it’s a good value compared to other options. However, it’s also slightly larger than most RV side-by-side recliners so make sure you have the space before you invest.
Who this is for: This is a great loveseat-styles side-by-side recliner set. They come in several color options and are made for convenient install and cleaning.
Why I like it: Available in three shades of brown as well as grey, this pair of connected recliners will fit in just about any RV or camper at just 58 inches wide. The faux leather upholstery is durable and easy to clean. If you want to cover it, make sure you find something with a non-slip backing, especially when your camper or RV is mobile.
These are “wall hugger” or zero-clearance type recliners, so when you recline, they need to be about 3” from the wall. Pre-drilled slots in the frame provide easy to access anchor points. Other than that, assembly is a simple process of snapping the pieces together. The total weight is just 166 pounds and each piece weighs about 35 lbs.
Who this is for: This is great for anyone that wants a more classic type of recliner for their camper or RV.
Why I like it: First, you have four upholstery colors to choose from. Three shades of brown and one grey. These are all in a heavy, faux leather with a high-quality polyurethane finish. They will be easy to clean as well as resistant to spills. They won’t attract any dirt, dust, or lint. If you take your RV or camper off the beaten path, these will make things that much easier for you to relax about.
Beyond the upholstery, these individual RV recliners are able to be anchored using pre-determined anchoring points on the frame. Each chair weighs roughly 96 lbs and comes in two sections. Installation is just a matter of clicking them together.
These chairs also swivel and glide some, though there is resistance and they are unlikely to move when your RV or camper is in motion. Fully reclined, each chair is 62 inches long. They need a foot of wall clearance, at least, to recline fully and not damage your walls.
Who this is for: This is a great RV or camper recliner if you have plenty of wall clearance and want one, two, or three units that can sit side by side and look well put together.
Why I like it: Not only is this potentially the most stylish model, it’s also the best value for your money, if you can afford the 16” wall clearance needed to fully recline. Of course, if you don’t intend to recline fully and you pad the wall behind you, you can cut down on this clearance requirement.
Fully reclined, this chair is 64” long, that will accommodate a lot of people at different heights while providing the most support possible. The armrests are also a radial style to provide full support while both sitting up and reclined.
This chair is easily assembled with the included hardware and comes in several pieces for easy installation. The recliner can then be brought into your RV or camper and secured to the floor by taking advantage of the chair’s construction.
