Wink Weight on bed bunks?

I'm curious.. has anyone had any weight issues on the bunk ends? I'm not a big girl, but my first time out I have to admit that I was a little worried about it collapsing.. kinda that fear of falling since I feel extended out there with no support..

Rated for 1000 pounds. Wouldn't worry about it if it were me. The PUP had poles holding it up & the Roo has cables. Cables are good & sturdy.

Thank you rbq..
Just checking.. you never know when things might get "active"...
Surely didn't want to end up on the ground...

I don't think they make sound proofing for the canvas.. ~hushes~

Not retired but still "active" once in a while & there hasn't been any bounce on the bunk. As to the sound--if you can hear the wild life outside then the wildlife inside can also be heard.

I wish I could worry about a collapse. Ever since mrs vader took over a bunk of her own and built a noisy nest of fans and 4 inch memory foam I have not had a whole lot of reason to ponder such things.

It is a bit like being on a diving board, which I suppose could be good or bad depending on your sense of adventure. To quote the mighty weeble...they may wobble but they won't fall down.

I will say my bunks are only 2 inches above the power jack and even with 2 people in there it was exactly the same other than some slight flex in the base of the bed.

Just a little FYI, I wont get into details or toot my own horn but don't worry about your "Activities" Everything holds up just fine. Just be mindful of the center support rod, Don't want things collapsing.
