Rockwood 194HW dinette table support for bed

I have a question for anyone who has a Rockwood 194HW. Does your table hold up pretty well as support for the bed? My husband is a big man and my concern is the table would not hold up with lots of use.

The table is stronger than the plywood used for the rest of the dinette bed. Your husband's weight will be distributed over the whole bed, not just the table. I think someone would need to be jumping up and down on the table in order to break it.

The problem is not the table but the support rails. I drilled through and reinforced them with carriage bolts and nuts. They seem very sturdy now. It was a fairly easy improvement.

We had a double diner in the past and we put supports under both of them one with the single pole for the table; we crafted a support from pic & sanded down to fit. In the other one we made support T brackets placed them @ 90 degrees for added support in case the weight was too much w/two people on it �� �� ��

x2 on the support rails being the problem. I, too, reinforced ours. In addition, I had a couple of old school stabilizer jacks (the kind that are pyramid shaped) that I threw under the table section for extra support......much more relaxing for me knowing I wasn't going to crash!
