She had knee replacement last year, she hasn't been climbing anything recently. Plus she was in a car accident last year as well which tore her shoulder muscle and screwed up her back and I want to make sure she's comfortable.

Hate to say it but, you may need to give her your bed and you sleep on the overcab. The wife and I slept there when the arrangements called for it. Older sister and husband could not get up there due to age. No bad sleeping.

Oh, I think it has been posted before and I remember a 600lb limit. I know it is fine with 400lbs. See above post.

I am curious about this as well. We purchased a 2011 3170ds last month and the manuals and paperwork are hit and miss. I've looked everywhere I can google and still coming up on empty. There are no stickers anywhere that I can find. Assistance appreciated.

Posted in another thread about the upper bunk by FR rep BClemens;

"Yes, the "official" rating is 300 lbs. Here's the thing. That is a one piece side wall. We use 1 1/2" aluminum tubing to frame the wall (most of our competitors use 1"). We then laminate fiberglass (exterior), Azdel Composite (under that) and Vinyl covered lauan (on the inside of the wall). That is all glued together and vacuum laminated. The bottom would fall out before the side cracks...at least then you land on the roof of the cab."

Thanks for your help with this. I don't know why this information has been so hard to come by. Good people on FRF come through again!

Speaking of M-I-L suite, I once saw a fairly large CAMPER pulling a regular travel trailer. I wondered what was the story on THAT! Were they bringing their M-I-L along or was it for the kids?

Along the subject of this thread, a friend of mine said the couch folded down was fairly comfortable.
