I wanted a rollaway type bed that would carry more than 250 pounds. This is it. Great for kids, grandkids, and adults. The bed is well made and the mattress is thick enough for comfort. I add all kinds of pads to make it even more comfortable. As far as storage, the metal stand compacts and for those naysayers of the mattress, I got a plastic mattress bag from one of the truck rental places, inserted the mattress and store it under a bed. No problem! In fact, it just may be more compact than a standard rollaway. The quality blew me away for the price.
