2011 Tradition Sleeper Sofa

We have the Villa sleeper sofa with the air mattress. When the bed is out and the mattress inflated the foot of the bed is about 4" lower than the head. I am sending pictures to Villa for an answer. It appears that the slide is higher than the floor causing part of the problem.

Has anyone else had this issue.

I do not believe it is the sofa designer's problem... it is the coach maker that took a stock sofa and put in in the slide of the coach without correcting the length of the legs.

I put a new sofa sleeper with air mattress in the slide in our MH and the end of the bed is about 2 inches lower... hasn't seemed to bother anyone that has sleep on the bed but if it does then I will cut a set of small blocks to put under the legs.

We have (had) the same problem, I went to the Home Depot plumbing section and found thick rubber like couplings about 4" tall, when bed not in use they store underneath, I use four of them 2 under each post that flips down, they are also easy on the floors, no scratching or sliding around
