Video Transcript for Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at the Thomas Payne 68 inch jackknife sofa. This is for RVs and campers. It's available in five different colors to complement your interior. For Beckham Tan, part number 195-000012. For Melody Walnut, part number 195-000013. For Pivot Harvest, part number 195-000014. For Poise Mahogany, part number 195-000015.

Finally Poise Dark Chocolate, part number 195-000016. This stylish sofa is a perfect upgrade or replacement for your RVs existing sofa. It simply mounts on the platform your old sofa was on. You see that simulated here with the wooden blocks. It's made with a PolyHyde upholstery and high contrast stitching for added style. It's not just a comfortable couch. It also converts to a bed with one easy motion.

The soft padding and the high density foam make for a comfortable nights sleep. If you're concerned about accessing your drawers or anything you may have underneath, the kickboard is easily removable. While we have it folded up, I'd like to point out that there are numerous mounting locations here at the base. You will have to provide your own hardware. We'll give you some measurements to help you determine if this is the right fit for you. It sits 24 inches above whatever platform you have it mounted on, 28 inches deep, and 68 inches wide. The base measure 20 inches and the kickboard extends 10 inches below the base.

In the bed position you get a 40 by 68 inch sleeping surface, and it extends 10 and a half inches from the kick board. You'll need at least an inch and a half clearance here at the rear in order to fold it out. If you'd like, a leg kit is available and sold separately. You can find that at the part number 195-000017. That's going to complete our look at the Thomas Payne 68 inch jackknife sofa with kickboard for RVs and campers. .

We removed a low quality dinette from our RPOD and built a platform to set this atop. The sofa is high quality and is a great addition to our little camper. 654030

Review from a similar Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofa in RV Couches and Chairs


Easy to assemble, looks like quality materials, the leg kit could have fit more accurately but I was able to stabilize it once I fastened it to the floor and spread the legs from bowing inward. My eTrailer rep, Dena was helpful and responsive throughout the process as we did have an issue regarding the couch being back ordered and delayed in our expected delivery. It was not as smooth a purchase as I would have preferred but it is in our motorhome and it looks good. And eTrailer did the best they could with what happened and delivered superior customer service. 732575

The quality of the material is outstanding and the installation took less than an hour. I have recommended this sofa many times on the FB group I belong to. 5 starts for sure from me. 725111

  • Do I Have a Thomas Payne Sofa in my Forest River Wildwood Travel Trailer
    I spoke to my contact at Thomas Payne and they informed me that they did not supply Forest River with the jackknife sofa for your Wildwood X-Lite travel trailer. Therefore, if the sofa you have is an OEM than it is not a Thomas Payne. I have not personally sat on the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa part # 195-000016 but we have customers tell us all the time how comfortable the Thomas Payne collection is and they even use them in their homes.

  • Will the 68 Inch Wide Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa Fit In a 67 Inch Slide Out
    The width of the metal bracket on the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa part # 195-000016 is actually a bit larger than 68" and there isn't any wiggle room here. Therefore, the best option for you would be to use the slightly smaller 62" version, the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa part # 195-000011 or part # 195-000011-017.

  • Does Back Portion of Thomas Payne Jackknife Sofa Sit Higher than Lower When Laid Flat
    The back portion will be a bit taller on the Thomas Payne RV Jackknife Sofa # 195-000016 when laid flat. The lower portion will have a firmer padding in it that is shorter in height whereas the back portion will be softer yet thicker. What that means is that you wouldn't sit up higher on side of the sofa if you tried laying on both sides.
