This has been a bit frustrating. I look on youtube and Pinterest and still can’t find something that will be easy to go from bed mode to couch mode and back. I can’t have it open and close from the sidewalls, it needs to open from the back wall towards the front. I have looked at Ikea, Walmart, RV stores, amazon, DIY sites…I feel as though I have exhausted my options. If you have any ideas as to how I can make a bed/couch, please please please please send the ideas my way. I need something simpler on my back to open and close. Our mattress is great. But going from bed to couch and back to bed is just killing my back.
