Measured our furniture yesterday. Need to replace the junk. Please give us as much info as you can. Delivery?? Dealer said it may cost as much for shipping as it does for the furniture (Lippert). The "cloth" furniture in our first two Montanas held up well. Not the fake leather in the 3611. Like others have said any advice will be greatly appreciated.

It would be great to see some photos; thinking about the same thing.

We did the same. American Furniture Warehouse had a matching gray leather recliner couch and recliner loveseat—twice as comfortable as factory, very inexpensive, fit well with a few inches to spare.
Another hint, the original and the new couch bounced forward on the road, and I rarely remembered to climb through and push it back before opening the slideout. The living room side slideout trim on the rear of the slide was just brad-nailed in, and frequently popped off during opening. After several times of repairing it, I had a great idea: I put the couch in place, pushed it back far enough to clear the slide out, marked a pencil line on the linoleum at the front of the couch support bar, then painted and screwed in two sections of 1” x 2” pine to hold it in place on the road snd during setup. Once the slideouts are open, I tip the couch over the wood guards and it is ready to recline. No worries since.

I don’t know anything about RecPro furniture - but Amazon has some recliners with a reasonably quick delivery time - free delivery for Prime members.
The second screen shot is for powered seats and evidently is available in fabric in a gray or tan color - it says leather in the screen shot but there is a paragraph that was not captured in the screen shot that describes the fabric. Again - I know nothing of the quality or comfort of these chairs.

We replaced our dining table and couch with 5 recliners from Recpro. Installation was easy and we love the results. The backs on the 3 middle recliners fold down for you to have cup holders. We don't miss having a table, it was small and always cluttered with stuff. The service from Recpro was great! (Sorry that first picture is sideways!)

We got rid of our old furniture and replaced with two recliners and a couch from RecPro.
We got the power recliners and they have a USB plug in them. The couch is a jackknife couch as we don't have room for a hide-a-bed. The furniture arrived in several pieces. It's easy to put together. The furniture is light weight and seems to be durable. We're happy with the finish. We bought extra material and my wife re-upholstered the dining room chairs and redid the accent panel above the entry door. Headed to AZ for two months after the holidays. Will get a good test then. We did do a week long trip in August and enjoyed the furniture.

How did you get that sofa in there? Should have a video of that!

Not sure we could do without the table, but if it works for you that’s an impressive upgrade!

This is actually a great idea! Our recliners came with a strap what we put on before travel that keeps them from moving. That strap goes around the outside of the recliners on the seating surface.

But, now I'm thinking, why didn't Keystone put that strap down low on the base/frame of the recliner, so that you never had to take it on or off, or worry about whether it was strapped in?

Or, if that doesn't work, take your wood block idea, and put the wood blocks so that they capture the frame of the recliner in the back, and then you would never have to worry about them moving, something like the red block:

Each piece of the sofa was separate and really easy to get it into the camper and attach all 5 pieces together. My two adult daughters were able to do it in about 3 hrs.
