Aluminum/metal frame and some other framing to the backside off all cushions and encased within the cover, but can't see it to describe it in better detail. Aluminum/metal frame under the seating area which the legs are attached to which is in addition to the internal framing within the cushions. Pretty sturdy but does specify a limit of 300 pounds.

answer 6
It uses between a full or large Twin size. The full may be a little too big but the excess simply hangs over the top. Whether the back is up or down, the excess can't be seen. As a matter of fact, you can change the decor by buying nice sheet sets, using the fitted and cutting the flat down the middle, sew simply curtains and voila! you've got yourself an ensemble!!

Hope this info helps.

It's 3 feet wide, and 2 feet tall. It should fit most car trucks. Also, it is in 2 pieces, so if you take it out of the box each piece weighs less than 25 lbs.

Its a big box but you can fit it in a car. It will use up most of the space though, so dont try it with too many passengers since I think depending on the size of the car it might fit in the trunk or u might need to put it on the backseat.

Unless you have a pick-up, or a decent sized SUV, it won't fit, I used a small trailer to get mine home. The futon is not that heavy, but it is bulky. I was able to do the loading and unloading, and was able to wrestle it into my house by myself, but I wasn't able to shrink it small enough to fit into a car.

Probably not. If your talking about in the box before putting it together, it was quite large and pretty heavy. Looking at a standard house door, the box comes up to about 3 quarters of the way from the bottom, and it's fairly wide.

Not at all. The support system of this furniture isn't like the 'old' futons with the mesh-style backing. It's a steel grid that has built-in center support, backed up with a center bar that connects the two halves of the sofa. It's very, very sturdy.

It doesn't need any added support. There is an aluminum frame with crossbars under the seat cushions. There are two of those crossbars a few inches apart down the middle, then another crossbar between those middle crossbars and end of frame crossbar. Hopefully you can picture what I'm saying. My teenage daughter and friends use the futon all the time. They love it and find it very comfortable. Since it's in the "game" room I haven't really sat on it much but for the few times I have it was comfortable to me too.

The futon is about 40" x 72", and a full size is 53" x 75". Personally, I don't think you can sleep two adults on it, never mind comfortably, but if you want to try, they better enjoy sleeping very close together.
