Sofa Sleeper

We want to buy a new sofa sleeper for our Redwood 38GK the maximum depth from the wall can only be 36". (Has to miss the slides) The front door is only 28" so we need one that the back will remove to fit through the door. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have googled and looked at hundreds that won't fit. Thanks Jim

How high are the doors, could it be put in standing on it's end and then rotating? It was my understanding from the factory that all the furniture fit through the door.

It may work that way. The door height is 75" and the couches are 85 to 88" so that may work. Thanks

You might have temporarily remove a window to create a large enough opening for the sofa sleeper. Pretty sure a residential refrigerator won't fit through the entry door opening. Sofa and refers are usually in place before the slide outs are secured. Which would involve removing the Valance and the trim around the window. Don't break the heavy window either.

Thanks, that could be an option. Ours is a RW38GK and the interior around the window is wood and looks like this could be a problem removing the window.

Is there a reason you want a sofa sleeper? We always end up with one from the factory and hate it. They are just not comfortable. We always found that if we just purchase a nice blow up mattress and have it available for guests it makes sleeping for them a lot more comfortable and a lot less expensive. Just food for thought.

Agree with R&M...
our previous 5er had a NICE sofa sleeper that was an air mattress,
but we opted for a regular sofa in the 38gk for a couple of reasons...
previous 'regular' sofa sleepers were not comfortable,
and we didn't want guests to feel TOO comfortable !

what's that saying...
Guests, like fish begin to smell after 3 days

We needed a sleeper sofa when we bought our 2014 38RE. It had a regular sofa so the dealer took it out then charged us $1800 for one which was shipped from the RW factory. It's the absolute worst ever!!!!! Not even my grandchildren can sleep on it much less an adult. Wish we had gone with the blow up!!

WOW....I've had several people sleep on mine without an issue. Some even returned for a couple extra nights. We've got the one that came with our trailer with the memory foam mattress.

We went with the regular sofa this time, because everyone we had to stay just preferred an air mattress on the floor in front of the couch.
