Default looking for a sofa

Since I took the wife last year to Destin in Grande Rojo, she has decided that she wants to go actual camping. Well that consists of redesigning the truck less utilitarian and more family friendly. SO, I need to replace the sofa. The problem is everybody wants 6 to 8 weeks for delivery and I have three till the next vacation. any suggestions?

Bontragers Surplus Inc. |

I've been up to Bontrager's a few times, they usually have a nice supply of surplus rv sofas in stock. Give them a call, they should be able to tell you if they have something in stock that would fill the bill. Not too far from you, may be worth the trip if the price is right. go to the rv surplus section of their website and there are some pictures scrolling on the bottom which include their furniture section. probably not current, but it gives you an idea.

Default Sofa

The RV surplus dealers in Elkhart, IN have sofas too. About 40 miles down the road from Bontragers. All kinds of styles and colors.

I have called them twice and they have yet to respond. They say they will call or email and they never did.

They have web sites. Enter RV surplus in any search engine.

Thumbs up

I did the northern shopping tour yesterday. RV surplus, Factory RV surplus, and Bontragers. IMHO, there was no comparison. Bontragers had more inventory than the Elkhart shops combined. I got a new sofa for $225. Cant beat that. I found all sorts of doodads as well. I will definitely call them first next time i need anything.
