I love this bed! it's so elegant, lots of storage (enuf for a queen size aero bed with sheets, several blankets and pillows and room to spare, and the pistons on the bed a very strong. I had my GF lay on top while I lifted up the bed to access the storage, she's about 110lbs. It was very easy to lift up, I was so shocked.one bad thing was assembling it. you need 2 people. since the pistons are very strong, the piston brackets do not align properly with the bed platform. you need a person to hold the platform and another one to bolt on the platform to the piston bracket. other than that, I was able to put the pieces together myself.Another obstacle was placing the center rail. This was my fault. the post are not symmetrical, so I installed this incorrectly. if you do install this wrong, you will notice you cannot lift up the bed. the post that holds up the bed interferes with the bed platform while opening. I had to re-install the center bar again. this was my fault. I didn't notice the orientation of the center bar on the instructions.PLEASE READ THE DIRECTIONS AND SEE THE ORIENTATION OF THE CENTER BAR!other than these assembly problems.. I LOVE THIS BED! everyone I show my bed to think it's the the best! they are all JEALOUS.. and i love it!if you want to get a bed that everyone is jealous of, GET THIS BED!
