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.

This Sofa Bed having build-in metal strong frame and do not need any special extras to support the middle sections.

Try to re-read the descriptions is exacly to find how the bed supports are made etc.

answer 3
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.

answer 6
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.

If you're going to sleep on it every night for an extended period of time, I would suggest a thick mattress pad. It reminds me of sleeping on a hide-a-bed. You can feel the frame through the padding in spots.

So far I've had no issues. I like sleeping on this futon. There is a bar in the middle though that is uncomfortable if your butt is right in the middle. Depends on how you sleep also it is kind of short for the average person your feet might hang off a little if you are tall.

Unfortunately we've already thrown the box away, so I don't have exact dimensions. But it should fit through your doorway/hallway because it easily fit in the back of a Pacifica car with the back and middle seats folded down. NOTE: The box isn't that long since assembly is required -- the pieces/parts fit into a box about one quarter the size of the futon when fully folded out for sleeping. Hope this helps.
