Trifold Sofa - How do you make it comfy?

I'm curious what some of you have done to make the trifold sofa more comfortable to sleep on? Was it supposed to come with an air bed? I placed a memory foam topper on it but it is big and bulky to store when not being used. Any ideas that you have would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Just slept on the sofa bed for the 5th night. Now I can live with it. Yes, bought a cheap foam mattress topper from Walmart, $15. to $20. range so it isn't HUGE, Put it into a cloth duvet cover so I won't tear it but most important, SLEEP WITH HEAD AT FOOT where the couch seat would be softest. Also you can tuck in bedding so it doesn't pull up. There is one hard bar but as long as it is at my waist, it isn't felt. To store roll up and stuff at foot of bedroom queen. Now I need to find girls' stretch headbands to maintain tight roll. Big rubber bands leave marks. Help, where are you placing bathroom towel racks?

I like your idea of sleeping with the head at the foot of the bed. I use Velcro straps for keeping the mattress pad rolled up closed. I have a metal hanging towel rack that I got from Bed, Bath & Beyond. It holds all of the towels (2 set) and hooks over the shower door. We keep it on the bed when traveling so it doesn't bang the glass door.

Our daughter and son in law had a horrible night on our tri-fold sofa, so we bought an Intex air bed, full size. Sits right on the tri-fold between the sofa arms perfectly. Now it is comfy. The cost was about twenty bucks, and deflated, it fits under our bed in the storage compartment.

I use an air bed which has a built in inflate/deflate pump, then a 2" memory foam top and a padded mattress cover. Very comfortable.

Isn't it a sad state of affairs when you can't just make down the sofa bed without adding time-consuming blow up devices? Corporate officers for the manufacturer should be required to sleep on their product for a week! I just want to pull it out, but on linen and blankets and go to sleep.
Thanks for velcro strap advice, I will shop for some.
