Sofa Bed Sagging

We recently purchased a used MH that has a Flexsteel Sleeper sofa. The sofa is in excellent condition with the exception that the bed sags in the middle. The mattress is supported by a trampoline type fabric stretched with springs. There is no adjustment for the springs nor trampoline. Does anyone have and solution for this problem. We thought of a new mattress, but it would sag because of the trampoline. Don't want to buy a new sofa to fix the problem.

The springs that support the trampoline are probably stretched out & need replaced.

We had a similar problem in our previous MH. What I did was cut some 3/8" plywood pieces that were long enough to rest on the two side rails. I also had two pieces which were laid on top of the other two pieces in a criss-cross pattern. This was placed under the mattress and made the bed much firmer. All 4 pieces of plywood were stored under the queen sized bed in the bedroom. It was a little bit of a hassle to make and tear down the sofa bed but it made it useable.

I have yet to see a sofa with a conventional mattress that is comfortable to sleep on. I keep an Aero bed on board and if I have someone sleeping over it's easier to set up then messing around with plywood or any other thing.

The fabric is called polypropylene decking. [moderator edit].. there is a company called PlanetBed.com (or BedPlanet...can't remember) who can sell you a replacement.

We purchased a twin size 2" memory foam mattress topper at WalMart, placed it on top of the mattress and folded the whole sandwich into the sleeper sofa. No more sag and the mattress is a bit more comfortable if it has to be used as a bed. Works very well.
