No. The box calls it an over-sized twin. I'd say it's probably in between a twin and a full.

Question

can we use a foam topper or mattress pad in couch position?

My son just bought this futon and is complaining that its hard to sit on. I was wondering if I could go out and buy a thick mattress pad or mattress foam topper of some sort, put a sheet over it and still be able to use comfortably as a couch. I see posts where people put a mattress pad, but only as a bed. I don't want to go out and buy this additional stuff, if it won't work in couch position. I was hoping someone had some experience with this.
THanks so much!!!!

I use a mattress topper on mine. However it cant be to thick. Because it would be harder to bend when using in the seating position. The one I use adds about another 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thickness.

It's very easy to assemble, but very poorly made. I put it together in less than one hour. Regretfully, I didn't realize how flimsy the build was for several months, until someone tried to sleep on it. A 135 lb. woman managed to have one of the legs buckle and break while she slept on it.

Yes. It will just fit. Also note that this thing is SUPER easy to disassemble, and the additional set of legs fold into the futon. You could easily tilt this on its back and store it in the trailer that way when you are on the move.

Question

Is there a slipcover available for this sofa?

I bought this sofa in the leather version a few years ago and it is a little scratched up by my cats. I'm hoping to find a fabric slipcover for it. Traditional futon slipcovers do not fit this couch as it is fixed to the base. We're currently using a fitted full-size sheet, but it's way too big and not ideal. Thank you.

Not sure about a slipcover, but twin sheets fit on it good. And cover comes off, wonder if there are replacements. Cover goes through washer just fine. Little tricky getting cover off, took 10 or 15 min and a little unscrewing and about the same going back on, but not as bad as i would expect.

Only if the adults are small. Also you will need to place something under the backside when it is in bed mode. The legs are in the front and middle but no support on the back when laid down. I only had one adult for two nights and she said it was ok.

I wouldn't recommend it for two adults. The futon wouldn't be wide enough for two fully grown adults. I fit nicely on my son's futon alone after it is let out and I am 5'10 150lbs. Maybe 2 medium to small teenagers could fit snugly on one futon.
