Still searching daily for a hi-lo with tilt-out sofa bed, dinette bed, and swing away bunk. Open to other configurations that sleep 6+. Tow vehicle is a Yukon XL. Open to suggestions other than marketplace, craigslist, ebay, camper finds, this forum...Thank you for any tips!

Default Things to consider when needing sleeping for six.

We tried sleeping two adults on the dinette. It was very uncomfortable and crowded. I think the bunk has a weight restriction that would only work for young children. Best of luck in a rig that will work for your family.

I believe the drop-down bunk had a 300-pound weight limit. That's assuming it was factory installed properly.

I've searched the posts for the weight limit of the drop down bunk; have seen 350# (stated from the manufacturer) and 200# (mentioned by a forum member). Since we bought our 2006 Towlite used, we never spoke to a salesman and have not found anything printed in the owner's manual.
Looking at the mechanism I can't imagine putting 350 movable pounds on it; 2 medium sized children perhaps.

I'm with you, sojourner! We've put our Grandchildren up there when they were younger. I weigh just under 200# and I would not want to get up there. I certainly would not want to be under it with a 350# behemoth up there.

We've got a 1999 TowLite in Racine, WI we'd like to sell. We're asking $3,500. You can see pictures here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/zqkHhTdunMjs4Nsz7. Two on the front couch, two on the back (almost full size) bed, one on the dinette, and one on the drop-down bunk. Like the others were saying, I'd put the lightest person on the bunk, just to be safe.

Things to know: There's a bow in the wood frame from when a cable snapped right after we got it. We replaced the cable and had no trouble. There's also some water damage in the roof because of a bad hailstorm. We've patched it up and again, not had any issues since. I've got a thread submitted in the for sale section, I'll update when it gets approved.

I thought the pull-down bunk had a weight capacity of over 200 lbs.? Like 250 or something. Mine looks pretty solid but I would need a ladder to get up there and check it out. I could be wrong. There is a lot of different info. out there seems like.
