I love this bed. It is extremely sturdy. Only downfall is that it is very tall. I didn't account for that. Luckily I was giving 2 inches of wiggle room between the roof & ceiling. Make sure you are set on the location because once you set it up, you won't want to move it. My girls love it. We put a queen pillow top mattress with 9 inch box springs without a bed frame and the girls have plenty of room for their heads.
