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.

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.

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.

I would say you can't. The "mattress" is the sofa cushions and they are permanently attached to the frame. This is NOT as futon. It's a fold down sofa.

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.

There are two bars with four holes, 8 screws. You need to lay them down flat, cushion facing down. Then insert the 2 steel bars with 4 holes, screw them in all holes, then that's it. The four legs are the easiest to install.
