Default Bunk bed capacity

Hello. I have a 2008 HiLo Towlite 15T trailer. It has a bunkbed that swings down for additional sleeper(s). Does anyone know the weight capacity of this device? Thanks, Jerry

It's been posted here, that the capacity is 300#. I weigh about 200, and would not feel particularly good about getting up there on ours. It was fine for our two Grandkids when they were younger.

I have used my bunk bed a couple of times as have a couple of other adults. Only one adult at a time each weighing from 140# to 200 #. I would not recommend two adults at the same time. A step ladder is helpful since the single board that extends the bed past the table is too weak to stand on. I had mine reinforced with a piece of steel covering most of the underside of the board. I still would not use it as a step up.

When down for the bed the table is slightly narrow which I learned during the night while camping in Montana. I have since screwed a piece of wood the length of the seats on each side so now my bed will not drop down on either side. Lessons learned while camping.

I anticipate selling my 1509 Hi Lo this fall after visiting my son in Montana. My right shoulder has become significantly worse with my doctor recommending more surgeries. I don't think I could manipulate the bunk bed any more. I already have limitations with my right shoulder but hope to delay surgery as long as possible.

A different but relevant topic recommended by Jack. Today I purchased 30/20 amp and 15/20 amp circuit breakers from Mr. Breaker in Denver as backups since I have previously replaced my 30/20 amp breaker. This was much easier than attempting to locate one after it has gone bad and either the air conditioner or other electrical outlets/appliances are not working. You Tube has an excellent video for replacing one in your/my home which I have done and is the same process.

goyer; you did not mention whether you were asking about human weight or if you were thinking of removing the mattress and storing 'things' there. I believe I saw where someone removed the bed and made shelves for storage. Please clarify.

I have had guests at 230 lbs up there and slept under them with no issues on my 1994 FunLite. I've never used a ladder, but I do have the double bed underneath, so stepping up from the couch corner to the lower half rim seems to work fine.
