My husband and I purchased this stow away bed when we began having more people stay the night such as friends who may have had too much fun at game night and could not drive home. It was nicer to give them somewhere to sleep that did not take up our couch. This bed was fairly quick and easy to assemble. It is lightweight and very simple to move about the house from room to room wherever it is needed. It is also great for use during a sleep over with my kids by putting it in their rooms' for a friend to sleep on. The bottom has castors to easily roll when folded up but when unfolded the legs keep it in one place without fear of it being unstable. I was afraid the mattress would become deformed or uncomfortable in the middle where constantly folded in half while storing when not in use but no complaints so far. It is also light enough to carry between me and my husband when relocating to another floor of our home.
