    I would like to replace the existing cloth couch that is a sleeper bed; with a theater seating with cup holders. Is there somewhere where I can get a step by step process on this unit?

      Hello Janet,

      Thank you for contacting us.
      We don’t have a step by step process anywhere but I can tell you the easiest way to do this. It is best to disassemble the couch you have now first before trying to remove. The bed frame usually comes apart at the hinge. Remove a few bolts and it should come apart. You then need to remove any mounting brackets, some use L brackets secured to the floor and some don’t use anything. You should be able to carry out the couch. For recliners, the backs usually come off for easier install. Take the bases in and then install the backs. You can secure the legs to the floor with screws if you want. If securing to a slide floor make sure the screws don’t go all of the way through the floor.

    I submitted this question to the website last week with no reply. I am advised to have anti-sway bars installed on our trailer but have no clue as to what I need. Brand? Size? Cost? Any info would be helpful.
