keeping furniture in place.

I have a 36RE that comes with an ottoman which, when the slides are closed, keeps the furniture in place. Some of the other floor plans don't have the ottoman (31SL, 36FB, 38RE, etc.) don't come with an ottoman to hold things in place. Are the couch and recliners held in place by straps, or just sit there? If they are strapped in place for travel, how are they attached? Inquiring minds want to know. Thanks.

My ( SOB) fifth wheel had a strap that had to be placed over the chairs to keep them in place , I assume that is because they were swivel/rocker/recliners... On our 38RL , the chairs just sit there .. our almost 3,000 mile break in trip and they were in the same spot when we got home as when we left . .

No straps & very little no movement in almost 3 years of travel. We only have carpet on the recliner slide & the couch doesn't move & we don't have to flip up the cushions.

Nothing really moves in our 36RE.

We don't have the Ottoman. Our stuff is probably heavier than yours. 2 recliners and sofa bed. However our dinette chairs don't move.

Thanks Mark. We have the sofa bed and two recliners as well. Sounds like its no worry, as our dinette chars stay in place too.

On our 31SL we added an ottoman and we place it on top of the couch when we travel. The couch and the recliners don't move. The dinette chairs moved, I bought the big rubber bands that the movers use and one 4' band straps the four chairs and table together. Problem solved for us.

After 3 fivers now, nothing has ever moved. I don't even put the coffee maker away. Sits right on the counter. Living room recliners never go anywhere. Maybe on carpet helps that too. I guess I would think a Redwood might only ride better yet.

Hello Andy ,
