seilerbird needs a recliner
« on: November 07, 2012, 10:45:58 PM »
I have a full sized electric guitar, a full sized acoustic guitar, a full sized bass guitar, a 76 key synthesizer, two guitar amps, and a set of electronic drums in my RV. Plus a 46 inch TV and a 5.1 surround sound system. It is easy to put it all in my RV. I merely removed the dinette set and all the living room furniture and turned the living room and dining room into a music room. Gotta set your priorities.

Sounds great!  But did you save room for a recliner? ;D

Well I do have a chair that is sorta like a recliner in the living room that I watch my TV from. I hope some day to get a real recliner but so far I have not found just the right recliner. The biggest problem with finding a recliner is finding one I can fit into the motorhome. My door is 23 inches wide and most recliner won't fit in.

Here is a thread of mine that shows off the interior. The round blue chair is no longer there, it fell apart, so I have a different chair that is only temporary. There are photos in the first three posts.

The first post shows off the way the RV looks when traveling and everything is put away. The next two posts show my "parked in an RV park" mode. There is a hatch that covers the stairwell so I have the maximum amount of room for watching TV.

Have attached a store pic of my recliner, Tom. As you know, I placed it beside the front door of my rig where your current chair is located in your rig. To get it inside the door that is probably the same width as yours, we (needed help) turned it on it's side rather than going straight in, then curved it in as such. Thought I might have had to remove the base (6 heavy bolt type screws), but that when in as well. I put the foot stool in storage as it took up too much room.

My only problem now is that so far, I can only sit for 25 or so minutes without falling asleep. But then that's what a good recliner should do . . .  :)

Bob - The whole problem with a recliner like that is the arms. I want a recliner without arms. It is too difficult to sit in a recliner with arms and play guitar or bass. It is the only seat in the living music room so it has to be without arms.

Lee - That is what I am looking for. However I won't pay $439. The $20 chair I am using now works fine.

Ah -- and that makes sense, Tom. I just looked thinking the arms might be easy to remove - but I see the whole reclining apparatus is tied into the arms.

My recliner is made more for us trumpet players . . .  :)

I have a recliner like Bob's.  When I want to play while sitting in it, I use a 2" cushion.  Provides just the right elevation to keep the chair's arms out of the way. 

PS  I like the set up of your RV!

Some recliners have backs that can be unbolted and removed.  That makes them much easier to get through a narrow door.  All you've got to do is start checking used furniture stores until you find one you like with a removable back and you'll have it made. :)

Hi,
You might think about a Captains chair with tilt/swivel base (about $25 as I recall). Then you can just swivel the arms out of the way when you want to play.

Thanks Ernie - I did a search on Amazon for Captain's chair and none had swivel arms and none were even close to $25. Do you have a link?

Tom,
No, the $25 is for the base (bolts to a standard MH Captains chair). The arms on all of these swivel up out of the way. We have two of them and Tara always swivels one arm to the vertical position (or backwards) when knitting. Note; we bought our bases at one of the outlet stores in Elkhart.

Tom, You might want to look at salvage yards for captain chairs. My Captains chairs recline and the arms swivel up out of the way. With a foot stool I can sleep in them.

Okay that is one of the most awesome conversions I have seen. I really LOVE seeing an RV taken completely out of it's cookie cutter element and made into something entirely unique.  When I see the pix of yours it looks a lot like a friends sound studio when he was living in it in Studio City. Totally fun hangout!

I was shocked and amazed when I saw the cranes in Yellowstone.  Heard before seeing, we knew them well from Florida, had nesting pairs in the yard.  (big yard/RV resort)

Bill - I have not seen SHC at Yellowstone, but I did photograph a pair with a juvenile at Christian Lake at Grand Tetons.

Don - You lucky dog you. The only Pink Flamingos I ever see are planted in the yard of RV park full timers.  :(

How can you play golf without a camera, When they say nice shot, what would they mean?

Probably didn't have a collapsible fishing rod with you either.

Did they say Nice Birdie?

Tom S - you need to go spend a winter in Everglades / south Florida. The best birding I have ever experienced.
I did spend some time at the Everglades 8 years ago and I have been dying to get back ever since. I also spent fall on the east coast of Florida two years ago.  I will be in northern Florida for the last two weeks of January, then two weeks at Disney World. Then I head down to Fort Myers for a month. That is right next to Sanibel Island, home of the Ding Darling National Wildlife Reserve, one of the best I have found in the US. Then I will be going over to the Atlantic side and spending a month in Fort Worth. I have a friend who is a bird photographer who lives in the area and he knows lots of spots to take me.

So I will be in Florida this winter for three months and I am looking forward to seeing lots of birds.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I guess I should be shot for not taking a camera golfing and I don't hear "nice birdie" much anymore and the collapsible fishing pole just wouldn't hold the fish I see nor the crocadiles and gators. Lots of traps on our courses here.

Tom, I hope you are planning on spending a couple days down here. Sure would like to meet you.
