A camper that only sleeps two ( & the dog) means never having to make up excuses why that friend or relative can't go camping with you.

We use a 13" ( about as big as you can use ) Air Bake round baking pan in our oven for those yummy biscuits, cinnamon rolls and personal pizzas.
Never a problem with burning.

After we purchased our 23LB, the grown step kids were fighting over which bunk they were going to sleep on. I thought I better find out the weight limits so I contacted Forest River and gave them my TT info. They said each bunk bed was rated for 150#. If you guys have heard something different on the forum, let me know where it's at. I know I have seen larger bunks that were rated 300# each but they looked like they were meant for 2 people in each bed.

I would have thought that any boys older than around 8-10 would prefer to sleep in a tent to get away and have their own private time.

Then the bunks would not matter.

Unless, of course, it was horrible weather that a tent would not survive.

They must have changed something since the 2011 model. I e-mailed them and ask the question about bunk capacity. Here is the reply I received:

"Our bunk capacity is rated at 250 lbs. maximum"

I think I will contact them again to make sure I got the right info on the bunk bed rating. Thanks!

Well, I got the reply from Forest River about the weight limits for the beds in the 23LB. Had to laugh at the reply. They said they haven't done any real testing to see what the actual breaking points are for the beds but they suggest under 150 pounds for bunk beds, 250 for dinette and 500 for the queen bed. It's amazing that you can spend over $20,000 on a TT where they are guessing on the weight limits instead of actually testing them to find out. I spent $3500 on a 2002 pop-up that had King, Queen and Full size dinette beds that were rated for 1200 lbs. Never had any problems with the beds and even slept 3 adults in one bed. When you think about it, beds in pop-ups are exposed to the outside with no supports underneath except 2 little metal poles but they can stand up to 8 times more weight than a bed inside a TT. Something's not right.

The queen in our new mini lite gave way, and we were under 500. Had to reinforce from the storage underneath. The bed was supported by 3 thin self tapping screws... think drywall screw. Not exactly "beefy" construction.

Likes and dislikes of TT after our first camping trip

We tent camped for 35 years, this year we bought our first TT and we love it especially the sound of rain on the roof. No more tearing down in the rain.
When our kids come to visit from Seattle we rent a nice hotel on South Padre Island,
So how many does our camper sleep? 2 and 1 Beagle.
