Default Power reclining sofa bed?

The jack knife sofa in my Showhauler is not comfortable enough as a sofa or a bed. I was hoping someone had seen a powered reclining sofa bed? Or has anyone added a power actuator to their jack knife?

Never seen a power one. I looked long and hard for a jackknife sofa that has foot rests. Couldn't find one anywhere. Mine is not very comfortable either. Those sofas with incliners built in I don't think fold out flat for a bed. If you didn't need the sleeping ability that might be the one to look for. I ended up getting some cheap plastic tables that we fold out and use as ottomans.

Nevermind. I found the perfect dual reclining sofa that matches the black ultra-leather. It was an exact fit and only $700. I'll post a pic later if I remember.

But does it turn into a bed? I often need the jackknife for sleepers so I can't switch to something else unless it also makes into a bed. And, I can't use one of those hideabeds because you can't fold them out unless the slide is extended. Often we need to be able to sleep on it with the slide in.

It's a couch which can be slept on and it's 2 full recliners that can also be slept on. Anything beats the jack knife.

Do you have a link to it so I can look at it? Manufacturers name and model?
