  1. Prepare the area and furniture

    Examine the area of the RV where the couch is to be installed and the piece of furniture you are preparing to install. Using your measuring tape, make sure that you have a properly sized piece of furniture for the RV space. If you attempt to install a sofa without a proper amount of room, you may damage your vehicle.

  2. Remove the existing sofa

    Using your wrench, remove the bolts that hold the existing sofa to the RV. If there are any screws, remove them with your hammer and screwdriver.

  3. Bolt the new sofa into the ground

    Align the new sofa so that it's directly over the area the old sofa used to cover. Before doing anything else, make sure that the holes in the base of this sofa match up with the pre-drilled holes that you originally removed the bolts from. Once everything is lined up, use your wrench to reapply the bolts to the sofa and fix it to the floor.
