RV sofa

Unread postby PDW on Fri May 30, 2014 10:23 am

New here so not sure where to post this.
We just purchased a 2006 Zinger 29RK 5th wheel. We've discovered that the sofa bed is VERY uncomfortable. We want to take some family with us when we camp so really need a bit of comfort. Having trouble trying to figure out what to do with it. Can't seem to find a new sofa to fit the space which is 66" long and 38" deep. Or we go with a new foam mattress and plywood under it for support. The sofa itself is in good shape and matches the décor so I hesitate to change it but it is hard to find a foam mattress that is 48" x 66". Has anyone dealt with this problem and /or can you suggest a solution.
I was actually looking at 2 flip flop chairs side by side which would fit exactly into the space and would fold out to 70" which would give us 4 more inches in length. However these are in the US and would cost a fortune to have them shipped to Ontario.

How about buying a memory foam mattress at say walmart and cutting it down??
Have a good one

X2 on the foam to make it more comfortable.
That is what we did to the double bed in our unit and it works great.

We just purchased a "new" sofa on craigslist. It's basically brand new, only used twice. The people we got it from said they needed something better due to back problems. They said they got their new sofa a Raymour and Flanigan, which is a regular furniture store.
