settee/couch

Doing some thinking(carefully)/research about putting a sleeper coach in the salon. I would like to get something light weight, to be able to move it about. Haven't found to many options. Either to heavy or to bulky. Any ideas??

We didn't have the room to fold one out all the way and already have a dinette that can convert to a double so we went with one of these for general lounging/ occasional overnight guest use:

It's somewhat movable, and we thought it had a great name to boot!

We used a futon, believe it or not from Walmart online, that was great. They list all the sizes and show them open/closed. Around $200

Ours is a Flexsteel model, and the back comes off so it'll fit through the main saloon door. It's manageable, as to weight, but I dislike it... and have begun shopping for two zero-clearance recliners as replacements.


Anyway, if you haven't looked, Flexsteel makes such for boats and RVs...

Another vote for futon here, seems to fit all your stated desires.

When we had our 34' Mainship, we had one built. We went to an RV superstore. We picked the exact size and fabric. It was comfortable to sit/sleep on plus it had a large drawer underneath for life preservers and linens.

Try the L shape couches from Ashley they have the ones for a smaller homes and we put one on our Defever 49 for about $450 and it worked great during the whole loop .

Had a futon on the last boat with a medium priced mattress...absolutely fantastic for that boat and very comfortabld to sleep on.

For this boat I wanted a slightly better looking arrangement and found a Click Clack couch that fit perfectly and had enough storage under go hold all of our linens, towels, comforter, etc.

It folded flat to come through the small door and sleeps 2 very well.

Futon with a thick mattress was our choice on the previous boat. Second shot shows wood retainers that kept it in place.
