This one is also quite unique. Twin over futon bunk bed means that you can convert the bottom couch into a bed, and vice versa. It’s perfect for those who want an extreme space saver for their room. It basically means that you get 2 beds and a couch – it’s pretty awesome!
If you checked the details, you probably noticed the 600lbs weight capacity for futon… unfortunately I wouldn’t give it that much. Metal bedsteads can withstand a lot of pressure, but not when the bed itself is that inexpensive.
200 dollar bunk beds cannot withstand as much, and by looking at how customers react to it, it’s true.
The problem is, you may put 600 pounds on the bottom couch, but after time it will start to bend- it’s just unavoidable. DHP probably didn’t test it that long, or they might have with higher weights and then concluded that 600 pounds is nominal. It is not.
If you are going to use this bunk bed, I would recommend using weights at around 300 pounds max for the bottom, otherwise, it will start to turn into an upside V.
In terms of sturdiness, I’d give it a solid 7/10. This metal futon bunk bed is quite heavy, and because of that, it tends to stay on its original axis. It will keep being solid as long as you don’t push it to its weight limit too much.
As with similar double beds made of same material, it can start squeaking. If you’d only know how big of a headache it can be. At the time of writing this article, I am at my friends’ place, and his metal bed for quests is so squeaky that I blush every time I turn to my other side. It’s just horrible.
You may run into the same problem if not careful. Try not to tighten the screws too much, or they might start to make noise, or even worse, break.
Still, despite me being negative towards it, it’s nice to see a twin over futon bunk beds. They are quite rare and an unusual sight. Do remember though that price does not include a mattress. The mattress is something that many think comes with the price, but it’s not the case, especially with this one. This double bed requires a special futon mattress to be effective.
