The bed is perfect for a short person like me. It doesn't creak at all which some people have faced. I have put 2 thick mattresses on the top so O haven't faced any difficulties of rods digging into my back. Material seems sturdy, but I don't kniw whether it will rust in the near future or not. The bed is definitely a value for money. I was searching for a foldable bed(unlike the other camp beds where you use ply on top and the material is made up of wrought iron) and I stumbled into this. The product description says that it is made up of durable steel, so hopefully it won't rust too quickly. Overall I am very much satisfied with the bed, as ot solves my purpose.
