Bought as a guest bed. Very pleased with the quality of the product. At 69 I knew I couldn't put it together myself so had my handyman do it. He was able to do it by himself in 2 hours, even though at one point the directions said to use 2 people. It came in 3 packages, 2 of them heavy, so I made a point to be home on the day of delivery and asked the delivery guy to bring it into the house because I knew I could not lift the 2 heavy boxes. Everything was intact. The mattress is covered in a wide wale corduroy, very attractive. I tested it out that night and it was a VERY comfortable sleep. I have never had a futon before and did not realize that in the sitting position the seating area kind of slopes backward and I personally find that uncomfortable, but since the main purpose is as a guest bed this fills the bill nicely.
Got the 6" Futon Mattress to put on the double sized bed in our camper as the mattress was pretty thin. The Futon Mattress was great for the first couple of nights, but it flattened out and did not come back to the full 6" during the day. It is better than just the camper mattress, but not exactly what we were looking for. Will keep using it in the camper, but will probably get another piece of 5 to 6" foam to put under it for next Summer. This Futon Mattress would probably be okay for a room where it was not used very much, but for everyday use it would not hold up as I am sure a person would want it to.
It took a while to decide what to get for the guest bedroom - sleeper sofa, day bed, or futon. This was the right choice at a good price. I like a pretty firm mattress, but have had experiences with a relative's futon that was like laying on a rock - we had to put an air mattress on top. To be safe, I got a mattress pad with a good amount of fill in it to help soften it for sleeping. I slept on it three nights and it was comfortable, and a guest used it two nights and agreed. The color is darker than I wanted, but I got a cover for it anyway so it could be taken off and washed (it does take some good effort to get the cover on and I'm sure taking it off it will be the same). Folding and unfolding the unit itself is not too difficult, but the added cover does make it tougher; to change it back to a sofa I have to slide the mattress toward the foot, fold the unit back up and push/fold the mattress back in place. As a sofa it is a nice place to sit and chill for a while. The side trays and storage drawers are great to have for a room with limited space.
