Sleeper chairs are generally heavy. Before moving a sleeper chair, it is important to have two strong people who can lift and maneuver the chair.
Part of the sleeper chair's heaviness is because it has a bed hidden inside its frame. The weight of the sleeper chair depends on the bed inside it. For instance, some types of sleeper sofas are hybrids that house simple frames intended for air mattresses, making it both lighter and easier to move. Conversely, some sleeper chairs are sofa beds that can recline and have footrests. Obviously, the larger the sofa chair the heavier it is.
