Needing a cheap but nice and comfortable futon for extra bedroom for when we have quests come over, just for a night or two. wont be used too much but need something to have just in case.

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.

answer 2
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.

When you open it, it comes as two pieces. you put them together by inserting two bars and screwing it tight... and then it becomes a one piece (sort of how a back seat in a van operates)

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.

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.

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.
