answer 1
The mattress that comes with this is a full bed size.

answer 2
The mattress should be a full size. But a mattress that fits a bed will nt work on this frame. It takes a foam mattress with a cover. It has to be able to fold in order to be used in the sitting position.

If you use any other mattress besides the mattress that comes with this you probably won't be able to fold it back to sofa. The mattress that comes with this can be folded.

answer 5
I just got this futon. I love it! Mattress is great. Only thing is I can't put it in upright position by myself. I have the 8" mattress. It's too heavy. I have to take the mattress off, put the futon in the upright position, then flop the mattress onto the frame. You need 2 people if you're buying the 8" mattress. But I still love it, it's great.

Anyone else know a better way to put the futon from the flat position to the upright? Need 2 people or take the mattress off to do it.

This frame will take a six or eight inch thick mattress. I would think if you tried a heavier mattress, it would be harder to lay out or fold up.

There are two metal handles attached to the front of the seat frame that stand upward. When you place the mattress on the frame you adjust it to rest on the handles.

answer 1
It comes with an 8 inch thick mattress. Very nice thickness! I think it is full size mattress, because I used my full size sheets for it. You will have to take the sheet loose or off in order to fold it back to sofa.

answer 2
Futon mattresses seem to be pretty standard. We used one we had from a previous futon. The mattress is better than the one I saw at WalMart when we were shopping for a replacement frame. I would not use just a regular mattress because of the bending when the bed is converted to a sofa.
