We had those very same chairs in our Bighorn when new. I thought they were very nice chairs but for us they seemed to become uncomfortable after a couple of hours of TV viewing. We now have one Lazy Boy recliner and a Reclining Loveseat. The Loveseat replaced the sleeper. I suggest you go shopping and find what you like and just replace as you see the need. Most of us that spend any length of time in our rigs have done it. Have fun shopping!

We have those very chairs with the ottomans. We are looking to replace them with one Lazy boy. We would be willing to sell both chairs and Ottomans, if your interested, PM me.

Larry, we replaced ours with 2 postion recliners from JC Pennys. The are made by Lane. They are light weight and small enough to fit in the Horn. I know they come in different colors.

I bought Benchmaster chairs & ottomans to go in my former 5er. I still have them and they work for us. Have been looking at Stressless but don't want to put that much money out. There are several companies that make this style including Lane, Ashley, MacMotion, etc. Just do a search on the internet for stressless and you should fine lots.

We replaced the OEM with besthf.com. Good stuff.

We replaces our heavy recliners with Euro chairs that we bought locally. They are made by Lane and when I turned them sideways for traveling, they fit within the dimension of the slide edge and the back wall. This makes the third coach that we have used them in without any problems.

I like the look of these chairs and checked Lane's website for them. We only have 31-32" clearance to the slide edges. The chairs I found were all 34" +. Are yours a recent purchase, and if so, do you know the model? I like the way yours leave plenty of room between the chairs for a table etc.

Thanks,
Sue

We ended up buying 2 Lazy Boy recliners that fit in the back and we have enough space left for a table between them. We put sliders on the lazy Boys and they are now easy to move into position. We accidentally discovered that we don't need to strap them in when on the move. We have been on some very rough roads and they don't move.

Hi Sue.
I've been looking at Lazy Boy but the only ones that "measure to fit" are electric. May I ask which recliners you purchased and the measurement?
Thanks,
Sue

We bought the Pinnacle model. It is a wall hugger recliner. Besides the slides we put on some handles high up on the back side so we could turn them easier.

gjackson - sorry it took so long to get back with ya. We bought the chairs about 5 years ago after a long search. Keep looking, they are out there. We saw many chairs that were wider than the dimension but when I found them, it was like they were everywhere. Unfortunately they were not cheap but they have been worth it. Good luck.

Sue and Tom, what model of Lazyboy did you purchase? I'm looking at Lazyboy as well, so I would like to know what you decided on, and that way I know it will fit in our 3055 as well. Thanks for the info.

oops! Just refreshed and saw that you bought the Pinnacle. I'm looking at the Anderson model, so I will compare the two. Thanks.

Just make sure you measure and compare sizes. Who knows, Lazyboy may have changed them for some reason.

Google "ChairLand in Oldsmar Fl." we just bought 2 Euro recliners from him....He is at the Tampa RV Supershow every January.....They are easier to move around and when you recline they stay reclined..They do not come back up by them selves with you in them like the ones that come in the Big Country do....

This might be a silly statement, but the 3055 and the 3670 are the same size in the area where the recliners go, right?

I would never "assume" that. That is why I say measure before getting ordering anything. The Pinnacle fit in our trailer and many others but mfg. change the dimension of trailers as they see fit.

Exactly. Some have claimed that they can close their slides with the sofa in the rear, where the recliners normally are. No way in our 3670. Even the recliners are a close fit.

On another note, with the "new" Flair recliner pads under them and strapped down, the recliners did not move while in transit from the CG to storage, a distance of 200 miles.

I know exactly what your saying - when we were shopping for our 3670, one salesman told us they could be swapped around. Wrong!!!

Thanks for the good chair ideas. I like both the Pennacle, the Rialto, and the Anderson by Lazy-Boy. I also like the Benchmaster Euro Recliner. Unfortunately there are none in our immediate area to give a "try out". Decisions, decisions, decisions.

We discovered, by accident, that the recliners do not need to be lashed down. We have been on some pretty rough roads and there have been no problems. I do keep an eye on the slides as they go out.

We just returned from a week vacation and moved the sofa and Euro chairs around. Really like the set up but the sofa was too big to leave it there so we put furniture slider under it and moved it back and forth.

We also just replaced the heavy, fairly uncomfortable recliners in our Big Horn. We purchased Lazy Boy leather recliners.... they just fit! We were pretty happy with that.

Ditto for us. Last Wednesday La-z-Boy delivered our two new Pinnacle Glider Recliners. We love them! We moved our sofa to the back wall and placed them facing the TV. We're thinking if we flip the sofa on its back and remove the legs we'll be able to close the slides. The jury is still out on that - we'll know on 11/17/11.

I'll be very interested to see what you find out.
