Weight limit for front bay of crusaders

How much weight can the front bay of the crusader fifth wheel hold. I am talking the battery bay under the king pin. It seems flimsy. Is the a spec somewhere I missed

Thanks

Robert

I'd like to get the same info. Want to carry my 50 pound portable generator in that front storage compartment but it does seem a bit flimsy.

That compartment is genny prepped so I know it can hold one. I don't know an exact number but sounds like a question the factory can answer. All the research I did before purchasing our crusader I never remember seeing a spec for it. Unless your trying to put a big ol diesel heavy genny in there I would think your fine.

Thanks for the feedback....My gen is a Yamaha ef2000is weighing about 45 pounds dry. It fits nicely in that compartment but been afraid to store it there cause the metal bottom seems a bit flimsy in there.

Are you sure that it is generator prepped? The one is my Crusader is not, I know we don't have the same exact unit.

Well I have the 315rst and mine is. My salesman also told me the crusaders are all genny prepped. But you know salesman so..... But I do seem to think I read it somewhere that they are.

So if it's a. 50 lb battery or so it's good for at least 150 lbs.

Does that sound about right.

I have 2 inflatable kayaks at 40 lbs each. Big and bulky but it would be a great pace for them.

Mine has steel floor. Put 2 6volt golf cart batts in and it was solid.

Btw it is definitely not gen prepped. That involves full metal enclosure and venting. Back wall is plastic and luan.
