Sofa Bed Weight Limit?

I have a 2014 390RB-60 Berkshire with the (I assume) standard sofa bed. We have some relatives that may visit for a few days but are concerned whether the sofa bed has a weight limit since the combined weight will be somewhere around 550-600 lbs. I certainly do not want to offend them but also do not want to break anything.
Anyone know whether the bed will handle this?

Sofa Bed Weight Limit?

I do not want to be in your situation. I have the BH model which may be the same sofa bed. I would think that it would hold the weight. But I do not know of any weight limits. Good luck!

My son in law is a big dude, he goes about 6'5" and about 265, my daughter is average size. No problems with them sleeping on my sofa bed.

Have you ever slept on that fold out sofa bed?
Have you folded it out and laid on it?
No one we now has been able to sleep on it.

Yes Dan I have, I never slept on it though. We keep a 3" foam pad in the bunks, we roll that out over the sofa bed when in use.

I have laid on it but not over night.... I assume you are talking about the blow up air matress. I found it quite comfortable and I am a "svelte" 250 lbs.

My son has slept on over night for 4-5 nights and said he slept quite well.

HOWEVER, putting upward of 500+ lbs on it will like cause a severe "blow out".

Boowho??

Do you have the sofa with the big drawer underneath? That is what we have in our 2012 Berk 360 BH. Our blow up mattress and pump are stored in the drawer. Never used the mattress. I have not seen another with this sofa arrangement.

I'm not sure we are all talking about the same style fold out bed.
Our 2014 390RB-60 (like the OP) did not have a blow up mattress,
and the sections are not level to the other.
It ends up with a big dip in the across middle of it that we had to try to fill in with pillows.

We did buy a good air mattress that helps, but I was actually just trying to give the OP an 'out'.

I would really love to have a regular sofa bed that has the metal frame and a mattress that you can make up and just pull it out and it is ready to go. This is what we had in our '08 Berkshire. Now, as I'm sure you know, we need to unfold the sofa, take a rolled up air mattress with a foam topper that we keep in the area behind the pullout, blow up the air mattress that we took out of an Air Dream mattress (https://www.airdream.net/) and then make the bed up for sleeping. A real PIA if you ask me. This combination seems to work well for sleeping but not so much for convenience.

Correct Dan, this is a different sofa bed. It folds out to form the bed, it uses the sofa cushions. It is a little hard and it is not a level surface once in sleeping position. This is why we keep a foam topper stored in the bunk house and use that on top of the sofa bed.

I have the same sofa in my Columbus I would think it would be hard to sleep on but my son and my brother and his wife both sleep on it like baby's. If this is the one you are asking weight issue about I believe you will be fine my brother tips at 350# and his wife at 300.
