No... No!!!! Don't even say it!!!!  :o  LOL...  I wondered what I would do if it wouldn't go in the door.  I installed a sleeper sofa in a 26' RV once, and the armrests came off which allowed me to make it through the door.  I'm hoping for the same success with this.

Well "Big Red" has finally settled into her assigned parking space.  I had to take down a tree and trim several others to make way for her.  I have two driveways, and the neighbors on the side where she was temporarily parked are rejoicing now that her profile no longer eclipses the sun from their property.   ;D.

Boy, backing into the drive will take some practice!  On the third try I finally got the correct angle to cut the turn.  Black&White backup camera doesn't help much when all you see are trees and bushes.  Glad nobody was watching while I worked it out.  LOL... Well, my wife was watching, but we don't get embarrassed around each other.  She sure didn't want to be the one backing her up!!!!  Now we are on the road to pick up a new leather sleeper sofa to replace the house style day bed the PO had in there.  The fun begins!


You thought nobody was watching...

Hmmmm. . .

Suppose the reason that bus couldn't make the turn was because it's a VanHool?

Well that guy makes me feel better... LOL. 

What's tricky about my driveway is that there is a ditch on either side.  One much worse than the other, but both will bottom out the bus.

Before you remove the windshield, see if the couch will come apart. Nearly everything in ours had to come apart to come inside. Still easier and safer than windshield removal...Cable
