Can somebody explain to me the recent obsession with theater seating in RV? Honestly, do the manufacturers really think you want to sit on top of each other all the time?

Randy told us at the CHR that we could swap out chairs for theatre seating. I know what you mean. Another problem with theatre seating is im short and my feet don't touch the ground in any of those theatre chairs. At least in my recliner I can touch the floor.

I wouldn't have one if they paid me to have it. I do a lot of crafting...hand sewing, crocheting. To not have a table next to me is outrageous. Saw one in a rig, no table next to it and no center console. UH UH. Lighting...with the theater seating you need to make sure there is room for a lamp next to you (at least I do)....the lights way up there where I can't reach while seated are NOT adequate!!!!!

We are looking at a new unit and both the boss (wife) and I agree that we do not want the theater seat. We will settle for one recliner with a end table first. :cfire

I agree with the post. My thoughts are that it would be nice and refreshing to see OR/HR allow you more flexibility on the interior to order ala carte.

Yes I realize it slows down the assembly line process, but maybe you redesign that process and also get some women involved in the decor selections. Had to throw that in to keep in good graces, but OR could use some women's touch. Love our OR, but come on they could use some pop.

Livin The Dream!

The theater seating looks great in our 346 that's about the extent of that, and we have the center console that has a lot of storage, we do not FT so don't need the space. Wish we had the option for recliners at the time of purchase, the theater seats do not recline just the foot rest pops up. Down the road we will replace with real recliners.

We asked for two recliners instead of the theater seats and since it was an order it wasn't a problem although a little tight to reach the recline leavers.

This is the company that made the furniture in our 5th wheel.
We actually stayed right across the street from their showroom while in Shippy.

Love this quote from the website. "In sum, if you can imagine it, we can make it. Give us a call and put us to the test!"

I can't imagine all of the trouble I would cause myself if I advertised with that statement.
