Speaking of chairs

I didn't want to steal anyone's post so I'm asking.
Has anyone replaced the factory chairs in a 3400, with ones that you don't have to move to put the slides in?
We don't care for swivel rockers, but do like recliners.
The smallest ones we found so far were just 1 inch too deep.

We have the Ekornes recliners with ottomans. Very easy to move for cleaning or any other reason you would move them. They do swivel, but are not flimsy. You have to want to swivel them. Never had a flip out foot rest recliner that worked for me, so the ottoman is best. The ottomans are stored in the seat of the chair for travel and are light weight, but sturdy. You can explore this option online.

We have Flexsteel Euro Recliners with ottomans we just put the ottomans up on the chairs and turn them and push them towards the wall and they are light.

We too have moved away from the big chairs and went the Euro recliners. We purchased from https://chairlandfurniture.com/ and found the quality and customer service outstanding. Also very good pricing and free shipping. We saw these chairs at the Tampa RV show and again at DeLand RV show and was able to sit in and test them out. Had the chairs shipped home to NJ and they arrived as promised. We will swap out the chairs when we arrive home next week.

We bought RelAxers (I think that is right). They are smaller and lighter with reclining feature. They also rock even in reclining mode and has an ottoman. Like the others we put the ottoman upside down in the seat of the chair. Be sure to put the ottoman so it rocks side to side. We had one fall out of the chair during travel when we had it front to back. Rough road... We turn the chairs back to back for travel and put a strap around them.

With our Lazy Boy we just push it back about three inches and away we go. It is light weight also. We are looking into a Lazy Boy dual reclining love seat for the main slide and place out recliner in the back window along with a desk for me. Just need to select a pattern, fabric and figure out where to have it shipped or where to pick it up.....

We don't have a 3400 but we didn't like the chairs we had so we took a tape measure to several furniture stores and found a couple of chairs that would work in the space we have. We found small wall huggers that worked just fine for us.
