      Dave beat me to it again! We encountered the same problem and got pretty good results with the square aluminum tubing under the webbing.

        x 2. It worked well. We used to feel like we were sagging inward towards each other. You can buy the aluminum tubing at Home Depot or Lowes.

          We also,did the aluminum tube fix to ours. It solved 90% of the funnel effect but still needs a bit more. I intended to put some hardboard under the mattress but when I saw the edge of the frame was an inch above everything else, I opted first for the tube fix. I still may put some hardboard under the mattress.

            We got a 2" bunkette board. It solved the funnel effect, but the matress was still very uncomfortable, so we replaced it with a memory foam matress.

              We layed 1/4" plywood under the mattress and that did wonderful!
