I Want To Replace My RV's Jackknife Sofa with a Fold Out Sofa Sleeper
(Clarkston, MI, USA)
I have a standard Jackknife sofa sleeper. To get more sleeping space, I would like to replace it with a traditional fold-out type sofa sleeper. It seems there are none. Good Sam Extended Service Plan is mechanical breakdown insurance for your RV, 5th Wheel, Trailer, and Tow Vehicle! FREE Quote
ANSWER: Hi Craig if you are talking about the old type hide-a-beds that you opened up to reveal a double or queen-sized bed with a thin mattress that you could feel a Pea under, then I would advise for comfort sake that you keep the jack-knife bed.
That being said; Flexsteel who manufactures furniture for RV's has a sofa called the Flex-O-Bed Sofa
. It works just like a traditional sofa bed except when you open it up there is no lumpy thin mattress; instead it creates a platform that you can put a Standard Queen Size Inflatable Mattress on.
Depending on the air mattress you purchase, you may end up with a bed that is more comfortable than the one you use at home.
I hope this helps.
