This looked like exactly what we wanted to replace the swivel rockers that had to be moved every time we retracted the sliders. W...e replaced our old fold out sofa with the recliners, which we love, so needed a sofa bed. We purchased the leg kit and put it together. It was unstable in every direction. After bolting the legs the floor, and adding strapping for additional stability, the first time I folded it down and sat on it, it ripped out of the floor.
I purchased this sofa to install in a custom camping trailer I am building. The sofa looks and works great, it was exactly what I ...expected, and is very nice. It might seem flimsy and unstable at first, but that's because it's meant to be permanently installed not free-standing. Once it is properly bolted to a solid support structure in the trailer/RV it is fine.
Pros: Ascetically pleasing , Comfortable , Exactly What We Were Looking For
Couch was as expected. As another person said, it's very wobbly; Like all jack knife sofas though. I bought a 3 foot piece of alum...inum strip about 2 inches wide and built a strap to keep it from wobbling side to side. 20 and 30 minutes and its so much more stable... Also it states it doesn't come with a leg kit. Well I ordered the leg kit separately as suggested. The leg kit came in three days, the couch in about 3 weeks.... and it came with its own leg kit. I also ordered the kick plate maybe that has something to do with it. I'd suggest not ordering the leg kit, when the couch comes if it doesn't have one, order it separately.
Pros: Ascetically pleasing , Fit Our Space Perfectly , Exactly What We Were Looking For
The cushions are easily removable, 4 nuts each so the frame and cushions can be loaded independently, then reassembled. This sofa is very wobbly, from side to side, even when firmly mounted to your unit using the leg kit, so I added a pair of cross supports to the rear side with 1/4-20 bolts and nuts. Works just fine.

This sofa is one-piece, so it will depend on the size of your door opening. The dimensions are 28" x 23" with three different width selections (62", 38", 72").

Can arms be purchased for this and is the kick board a drawer for storage ?
No, bolsters/arms are not offered for the Jackknife sofa. Only a kickboard is included.
