Sofa bed frame

Recently had my sofa bed re-upholstered in our 2006 Fleetwood Providence 39S and when we got it back together it seems that the top of the bed frame is elevated (slanted) about 4"-6" above the base of the bed. This places your head slightly above your body. I've examined the frame and can see nothing out of place. So I'm wondering, is this the way it was built and I just never noticed it before. I've looked on the net for sofa bed frames and there are some styles that seem to be built like this. So am I crazy or is this the way the bed was BEFORE the upholstery job and we just never noticed?

"cmb3231"......Some sofa beds do have a raised head area and some have an arm that will prop it up and can be lowered. Take a closer look.
