Since the Jackknife has become standard over the years, RV manufacturers put them in, but don’t necessarily consider who will be using it, or how often. And because of the built-in design or feel people are willing to settle for whatever quality or lumpiness this standard brings. If it is just being used temporarily or in a pinch, then how much time are you willing to invest in rejuvenating it?
At RecPro, we understand temporary and quick fixes, but you have to wonder what happens when temporary becomes permanent. Or what if you are going to switch to full-time RV-ing and will be using that Jackknife on a more regular basis. What then? Our philosophy is that anyone who uses the furniture should be blessed with a great night’s sleep, restful nap, or luxurious sit, be it temporary or permanent. Are you and your guests worthy of such a simple pleasure?
Where Design Meets Comfort
If you have a Jackknife that is just not living up to your expectations, or you have a space that needs seating that converts to bedding, then consider upgrading to a RecPro Charles Jackknife. No matter the size of your rig, you can include this stylish sofa to create the perfect floorplan that conserves space.
Comfort and convenience at your fingertips is the basic definition of a Jackknife. Designed to provide seating options by day and fold flat for sleeping in a matter of seconds. A Jackknife should be easy to use, not clunky, bulky, or involve several steps. And it should be just as easy to convert back to sitting when no longer needed. But beyond that, we believe it should offer supreme comfort for our customers.
A Jackknife from RecPro has a tough metal bed frame for sturdiness. The easy to use mechanism is engineered for efficiency and durability. We also use 6 inches of foam for support and generously pad the head and back cushions for additional comfort. We could lump this in with our wall savers because it too only requires 3” of space from the wall in order to unfold and fold. The slender and lightweight design that is inherent in all of our Charles luxury furniture is fundamental in the Jackknife as well.
When you look at your existing Jackknife, you might think “this is going to be a bear to replace”. But when you upgrade to RecPro furniture, you will find it easy to install. Possibly even easier to put back then it was to take the existing one out! And once in place, you will have a roomier layout and homier feel that will provide years of comfort for you and your guests.
Choosing Your Look
Our Charles line of luxury furniture is expertly styled to blend with your existing interior so you can mix and match as you please. We also offer a multitude of options to give your décor that personal touch that you are looking for.
First, we offer traditional Jackknife sofas (with arms), and sofas without arms. For the stand-alone sofa needs, you might go with the traditional option. But if you need the built-in look or have obstacles to maneuver around, then the armless version may fit the space better. With the multitude of internal designs that are offered in RVs today, sometimes you need legs and sometimes you don’t. We get that, so on our armless Jackknife, you can decide if you want legs or not. Now you can stylize your sofa to fit the size, space, and restrictions without skimping on comfort.
To further bolster our collection, we have two fabrics to select from. The furniture in most RVs is polyurethane due to its durability and resistance to water. However, not all of them live up to the longevity or harshness required for our customers. That’s why our Product Research team selected Suprima Fabrics for our polyurethane offerings. Suprima Tiona offers water resistance, tear resistance, and has a thicker polyurethane layer and woven polyester backing. It melts around our patented foam fill to offer softness end to end.
But, if you are tired of polyurethane, we understand. We had a number of customers who wanted a homier feel and request cloth so we have added RecPro Cloth. The understanding that our furniture is being used in moving and stationary dwelling was key in the development of our cloth and our team has found what we believe is the best on the market. With tear resistance woven in you’ll find RecPro Cloth to be just as durable as your standard polyurethane. One added benefit of our cloth option is the ability to resist harmful UV rays so it does not retain heat resulting in breathable comfort.
Lastly, once you know what type of fabric will fit your style, you will need to select a color. We currently have 5 to choose from and will be adding more. We encourage you to request a Furniture Swatch Sample to help determine which color will best outfit your sofa. And if you aren’t ready to make the leap to a new Jackknife just yet and want to take the fabric for a test drive, we understand. Our exclusive fabrics are available by the yard for any reupholstering needs.
Whatever style and color you select, this sofa can be an accent piece or covert operative for your interior. A Jackknife from RecPro can give any room superior functionality and bring a sleek contemporary vibe to the environment. It is just that easy!
