Futon for sale! - Need it out ASAP
Okay I'm in kind of a predicament.

I have this futon I got from my mom for Christmas last year to use as a bed because I have such a tiny room. I've since gotten an aerobed and am wanting to use that instead but I need to get rid of this futon first and it's proving to be very difficult.

It was originally $300, it is brand new, scotch guarded, barely used really because I'm gone so often and I sometimes like to sleep on the couch when no one's home.

I tried to post it on Craigslist for $250. Nothing. It's been 6 months, I don't think anyone on Craigslist wants it. I tried posting ads at the laundromat, my next option is school.

So I ask, is there anyone out there who would like a pretty much brand new futon for $100? I don't have the money to Uhaul it somewhere and I don't have a truck. I pretty much just need this thing out of here but don't know how to get it out for cheap unless I sell it/give it away but I'm really loathe to just /give/ it away because i spent so much money on it to begin with.

It's seriously a really nice futon and makes a great couch/guest bed for folks with not a lot of space.

Is there anyone in SoCal who might want it? i really just need it /out/ of here so I'm willing to negotiate, especially if you have your own means of getting it out because I really have absolutely no way to do it myself.

I'll ask rocko and zotter because we're all moving in july. I'm sure they might need the furniture since I'm taking all mine when I get my own place with Noname.

Unfolded (bed mode) it's 4 X 6.5 feet

What's it made out of? My futon's pretty much shot to shit, so I'm considering replacing it...

Wood. I keep wanting to say oak? But I'm not entirely certain on that. The pattern on the cover is beige/Route 66 pattern but it unzips and is replacable with a similar sized cover, I'm pretty sure its standard sized.

I think it needs to be unscrewed a bit to be taken apart. It fit in the back of my ex roommate's pick up truck.

I have not a pickup truck, but a Chrysler. Hm...

I'd like it, I wouldn't mind making a weekend trip to get it... would you be opposed to me checking it out sometime soon, and then seeing if it would fit in my chrysler, then me popping down the following weekend when I won't have guests?

I'd have to take a few spesific measurements to see if it would fit where my current futon is (As in how wide it is when it's folded up) but if it would, I'd be interested, provided I can fit it in the chrysler...

Dude when do I ever mind you visiting? :) Problem is the weekend after my birthday I'm going to be gone camping, so if you decide you like it and want it and wanna come get it the following weekend, I'm going to be gone (May is a busy busy busy month for me) but I'm not opposed at all to leaving you a key (or better yet, making you a key to keep cuz I don't trust my neighbors)so you can go in and out as you please!

When are you coming down for my birthday you think? Cuz we are going straight to Palm Springs Friday afternoon and are coming back Sunday afternoon or evening. If anything I can just make you a key to give you when were in PS so if on your way back you wanted to stop over if we're not there yet you can :) I'm totally open to anything!

Personally I'm hoping to leave Thursday night after work. ::Grins:: But, as I've got two passengers, I've gotta poke them and see what's up as well. I don't mind driving through the night, you know me! But I've been needing to stop and nap recently (A few hours), but since my gall bladder's been out I can usually make the trip just fine!

And sure! I'll be able to tell you then if it'll fit (As my room fits together like a tetris tower, lemme tell you. ::Grins::

I'll let you know when I see it, and then we'll make plans with the key. ^_^

Probably would help a lot if you took detailed pics of the frame and mattress and posted it to a webpage for observation.

Yeah would make sense, I just wanna clean my room first XD I have a photo of it around here somewhere but I'm having a heck of a time finding it.

Thaler says "Eew, we don't want your sex stained couch!"

But I say it'd be a nice replacement for the two lame chairs we have in our bedroom. Though it looks like you've got some other offers there. :)

Hey I'm taking offers until it's out my front door.

:)
