Think we found a "good one" BUT may want to replace a 2 seat couch with "theater seats". (2014 Thor Citation Sprinter). Where is the best place to look for these. We can DIY! Does it have to be from an RV store or if a wall hugger sofa wall hugger  recliner can be bolted to the floor would that work?

Doesn't have to be "RV furniture", and maybe doesn't even have to be "bolted down", depending on the piece and the RV layout. I suspect, though, that a theater seat would be afixed to the floor somehow, just so that it doesn't vibrate/move around during travel. It should not be difficult to put a couple clamps of some sort on the legs, but the specifics will depend on just what it looks like underneath.

I Googled 'theater seat RV' and got several sources, and you can do the same without including 'rv" to get a wider selection.

As Gary states, does not have to be RV furniture. We replaced the very uncomfortable love seat in our coach with a genuine leather love seat from Foot Hills Furniture in Yuma,AZ.

We took out the sofa bed and installed two recliners that we purchased from LazyBoy. We did not bolt them down and they rode fine on our last trip.

We took out our jackknife sofa and replaced it with two small zero-clearance recliners.  We just put a small stop, screwed to the floor just in front of the legs and for two years they haven't moved yet during travel. We picked up the recliners at the Sears Outlet store by our house.

I met some country folks that decided to get off the farm but weren't sure if they would like RVing or not so they chose an econo method of testing it out.

They bought a very old Class A, tossed out the beat up worn out furniture, then shopped at Walmart, believe it or not.

They bolted down the new cheap stuff, then went on their travels.

They put a couple of recliners on one side of the coach and a big huge dresser/credenza type thing on the other side as they felt like they needed more storage and the older rigs tend to come with a lot of generous windows.

They bought a regular flat screen TV and screwed the base down to the top of the dresser.

They ripped out the dining  booth but left the table attached to the wall, then bought swivel chairs on wheels for that area. They used a bungee cord system to tie the chairs in place when driving so they didn't roll around the rig.
