This jackknife sofa lets you kick back and unwind in your RV or camper. This sofa can convert to a bed, which makes it perfect for napping, watching TV, or simply just relaxing after a long day. The padding on the backrests allow you to sit or sleep in ultimate comfort.


Converting the Sofa to a Bed

Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofa Converted to Bed

Convert this sofa into a bed in 3 easy steps to provide an additional sleeping surface in your RV. Lift the seat up, pull it forward, and then push both the seat and the backrest down until they are flat. To turn the bed back into a couch, use the same steps but in reversed order.


Universal Leg Kit and Kickboard

This sofa includes a universal leg kit. This means that is it designed for RVs and campers that don't already have a pre-existing platform or frame. Because of this, some minimal assembly is required. Hardware is included.


Once assembled, there is a storage area underneath the sofa, which allows you to save room elsewhere on your RV. The kickboard installs along the front of the leg kit, and it's removable so you have easy access to your belongings.


Low-Maintenance, Stylish Upholstery

Thomas Payne PolyHyde Euro Upholstery

This sofa has luxurious PolyHyde Euro leather vinyl upholstery with a polymer coating. This is a low-maintenance material, which makes it extremely easy to clean up after kids and pets. The interior of the sofa is made up of high-density foam components. And the simple, high-contrasting stitching pattern offers an overall clean and stylish look.

Video Transcript for Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa Review

Hey there, cozy campers. Today we're going to be taking a look at Thomas Payne's RV jackknife sofa. You can get these in either Oxford Walnut or Cobble Creek, which we have displaying here today. They also can come with or without legs. If you do opt for the leg kit, you get a baseboard with that, as well. Thomas Payne's jackknife sofa is a sit and sleep option.

It easily converts from the sofa you see here to a bed with one easy step. It's large enough to sleep one adult or a couple of kids. Now, I will say, after laying on it you can definitely tell the difference between the firmer seat cushions and the softer backrest cushions. It is a little awkward at first, but I could still fall asleep on it.As a couch, it also has a folding center console with two cup holders. One thing customers don't think about with a jackknife sofa is all the storage space that you have below it.

This is a great place to keep your pillows and blankets, so when you want to covert to a bed they're there, and if you have any other bags or clothing items they can store down there, as well. The Cobble Creek color comes with an easy to clean woven fabric. If you've got the Oxford Walnut, that will have an easy to clean Euro PolyHyde leather. The cushions sit on a steel frame. We've got ours bolted to the platform below it.

If you purchase the leg kit, you still have a sturdy steel frame below it and the sturdy steel legs will support it.We currently have the non leg kit sofa installed in our RV, due to how it mounted. It mounts directly to the platform below it on our RV. You can see the existing baseboard from the previous couch that was here, and we did not replace it because it didn't come with our sofa. If you opted to buy the sofa with the leg kit, you'll get a baseboard included with those, and even if you have a setup like this, you could choose not to use the legs and then take the baseboard that comes with it and install it, replacing your original one. For demonstration purposes, we won't be installing our baseboard, but it's good to know that you have the option to ensure that your couch seamlessly integrates into your RV and everything matches.Now, you're probably wondering where can I fit this in my RV I've got some dimensions to help you on that decision.

The overall dimensions are 62 inches wide, 28 inches deep, and 23 inches tall. As a bed, it measures 60 inches wide by 42 and a half inches deep. In order to convert your sofa from sitting to sleep mode, you'll want to make sure that you have at least one and a half inches of clearance between the wall and the top back of the sofa, and nine inches from the wall and the bottom front of the sofa. If you've got a platform in your RV like we do, a jackknife sofa's really your only option. So this is a great unit for updating the interior of your existing RV or for replacing a damaged unit. If you don't have a platform, then picking it up with the leg kit is going to make a great option to add some additional seating and sleep area to your RV.Your couch will come shipped to you in a box just like this. We'll go ahead and remove our couch from the box by lifting up on the top half. Your couch comes as one piece and will easily fit through any RV door. Once inside, we can set our couch into place. If you purchase the kit with legs, you would install those now. If you purchase the kit without legs, you would simply provide your own hardware and use that to attach it to your base. Use some self-tapping screws and go right down to our base here. There are several pre-drilled holes in the side of the frame to make it easy to have plenty of options for your inaudible 00:04:10 mounted. If you purchased a unit with legs, you can now hang your kickboard on it, and now you're ready to relax. Thanks for hanging out with us and checking out Thomas Payne's RV jackknife sofa.

Do you have a question about this RV Couches and Chair?


  • Recommended Jackknife Sofa or Recliner for Small Travel Trailer
  • The build up over your wheels where your current Jackknife sofa is will likely rule out the theatre seating or sofa. There are a few possible options for you. The jackknife sofa is the only option that will keep a bed option. We have many options like the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa, Center Console - 68" Wide - Oxford Walnut # 195-000075 add leg kit # 195-000017 or # 195-000013-017.

  • Availability of Sofa with Storage Area
  • I have a possible solution for you but unfortunately none of our sofas, like the Thomas Payne RV Trifold Sofa # 195-000005, have a roll out drawer for storage. If you check out our 68" Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa part # 195-000016-017 you can see that there is a front panel. This panel is actually not a supporting structure so it does not need to be installed. This allows you to retain some storage underneath the sofa. The legs sit about 11-1/2" tall and the sofa is 68" long so you...

  • Could Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa with Leg Kit # 195-000013-017 Fit 2016 220RBS RV
  • If you have room for the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa with Leg Kit # 195-000013-017 that you referernced you certainly could install it in your 2016 220RBS. This measures 68" long x 28" deep x 35-1/2" tall. You'd need to measure the available area in your RV to determine if it will fit.

  • How Much Wall Clearance Does Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofa Need
  • The leg kit of the Thomas Payne Jackkife part # 195-000013-017 that you referenced is 11-1/2 inches talI. If you wanted to fit this over your 13 inch battery boxes it would not fit. To use this in the sitting and sleeping position you'll need to have it 1-1/2 inches from the top of the sofa to the wall when in the upright position and 9 inches from bottom of the sofa. With that clearance it will fold down to a bed and work fine.

  • Availability of Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa in Black Color
  • The Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa with Leg Kit - Melody Walnut # 195-000013-017 referenced in your question is going to be closer to brown than to a standard black color. For something closer to black, I recommend the Thomas Payne # 195-000016-017 in Poise Dark Chocolate. This color is more a mixture of a black and brown color. I have attached a video demonstration of this specific product and color so you can get a better idea as to what it actually looks like. I checked with my contact...

  • Availability of 72 Inch Long Jackknife Sofa

This sofa measures 68 inches long, 28 inches deep, and 35-1/2 inches tall. It is also available in Poise Mahogany # 195-000015-017 and Melody Walnut # 195-000013-017. These are really nice jackknife sofas that also include a matching kickboard and leg kit. I have attached a short video demonstration on this sofa that you can also take a look at.

  • Is There Gap Created When Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofa is Folded Down
  • I attached a picture that shows what the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa # 195-000013-017 looks like folded down as a bed. In it you can see there is no gap created. For this sofa without the legs you'd want the part # 195-000009.

  • Can you Use Seat Belts on the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofas
  • I spoke to my contact at Thomas Payne RV and RecPro, two of the largest RV furniture companies and they both informed me that none of their sofas/couch are specifically setup to be used with seat belts. Generally speaking, the majority of RV furniture will not be specifically designed to incorporate the use of seat belts but that's not to say they can not be used with them. Since seat belts are generally bolted to the floor, you can probably find a way to use them. Most RV couches such...

  • Will a Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofa Fit in a 1997 Airstream B190
  • None of our furniture is custom fit for any specific vehicle so it is really determined by you and if you have enough room in your 1997 Airstream B190. The Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofas come in 2 different lengths; 62" and 68". The 62" long options are 28" deep while the 68" options are 29" deep so there really isn't much of a difference there. Most people prefer to get the leg kit with their sofa. Our 62" options include the following colors: Pivot Harvest - # 195-000009-017 Poise...

  • Replacement Jackknife Sofa for 2005 Forest River Forester

Each of our jackknife sofas are either 62" or 68" long and require 9" of clearance from the mounting base and 1-1/2" from the back of the sofa. You can also choose from a variety of colors: - 62" Poise Dark Chocolate # 195-000011-017 - 68" Poise Dark Chocolate # 195-000016-017 - 68" Melody Walnut # 195-000013-017 - 68" Poise Mahogany # 195-000015-017 I've added a link to a video review of...

  • Sofa That Fits 33 Inch Slide Out
  • I would love to tell you there is a way to fit the Thomas Payne Momentum 195-055-056-057 sofa in the space you have, but it is 35" deep and also requires 13-3/4" of clearance from the bottom of your wall. A slide out that is only 33" deep and raised off the floor isn't going to allow the sofa to fit; it would be tilted downwards. I wish I could come up with some creative solution for you but your space simply isn't quite big enough for this sofa to fit.

  • Side Cover for Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofas
  • The Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofas like the 68 Inch Long # 195-000013-017 are typically installed against the wall, so the exposed sides will be covered. Because of this, there are not any side covers or plates currently available that will work on these sofas.

  • Overall Frame Width Of The Thomas Payne 68 Inch Jack Knife Sofa For RV
  • The Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa - 68" Long - Melody Walnut # 195-000013 is made by Lippert. They cannot give me the exact frame dimensions, but they can tell me that when it is folded for a bed it is 68 inches by 42 inches. The frame folds on top of itself, so you won't need more than the 28 inches deep measurement from the wall. It appears there are only a couple inches on the wall side of that 42 inch dimension that is not supported by frame, so the frame would be somewhere between...
