ok..here is what I got from the supplier.
Originally the sofa legs were about 3.75". This seemed to make the sofa bed flow downhill, made it difficult to secure the sofa to the floor and it sat too tall for shorter people. At some point, someone suggested taking those legs off to solve those issues...but as with any good deed, it did not go unpunished. That made the sofa sit low....which shorter people are just fine with...but when made into a bed, makes the bed slope towards the heads.
So, in a perfect world, they say tell me that 2" feet under the sofa is the way to go.
