Picked up new Recliners

We went into Tallahassee this morning to pick up our new recliners for the motor home.

It was supposed to be clear today, but when we left it was cloudy and looked like it could rain any minute.  We knew we couldn’t bring them home in the truck if it was raining, so we were hoping it would clear up.  It did and it ended up being a warm sunny day.

We went  to lunch at Five Guy’s Hamburgers for lunch.  They make a pretty good burger. 

After lunch, we headed to  Haverty’s to pick up the recliners.  They were in boxes and thankfully both boxes fit nicely inside the truck bed.

Once we got them home, we were pleased to find out they were in two pieces so they fit easily through the small RV door.  The back snapped right on and they were ready to go. The color was what I had expected and they were as comfortable as we remembered.

I worked on the trim around the dinette set, and Al worked on the trim around the stairs.  We finally decided how to trim that area. I still need to put the Allure down on the sides and fronts of the steps and then once we get the new rubber stair treads that part will be done.

Al needs to undercut a door jam in the bathroom and I have a small little piece that will fit in and I think I will call the bathroom good.  I have about decided not to do the upper level of the BR….but that can always change.


  1. Chairs look good, what make are they?
    We also ate at Five Guys for lunch today,(we love em), except ours was in Chattanooga.

  2. Jim n Cathy,
    The recliners are made by "Best Furniture." We also found that brand at Kanes Furniture and Badcocks. The ones we got at Haverty's were a little more expensive but we were told they were made to their specs and had a little more padding, so we opted for those. Regular size recliners would not have fit.

    Great minds think alike, huh? We just discovered 5 Guys and were glad to find them in Tallahassee!

  3. The recliners look great! Love the color. You must be feeling like you have bought a new motor home. You are really going to enjoy your modifications when you begin full-timing. The recliners look comfy enough for a nap.

  4. Those chairs look very nice against your new floor! Great choice of color too.

  5. Margie,
    Yes the recliners do look comfy enough for a nap...too bad I haven't had time yet!

    It does feel like a new MH. We got the stair tread in today from Brad & Hall, so hopefully we'll be able to get the stairs done soon.

  6. Your floor and chairs look very nice! Fab job!

    Five Guys - we have several near us when we're at our cottage in Delaware. We'll have to check that out this summer!
