2012 banshee B2 bed capacity

Hi all. New to the forum. I'm picking up a 2012 banshee b2 this weekend. Does ANYBODY have any reviews or info on these guy? My main question is, what would the maximum weight capacity be that those beds can handle? Between me, the wife and the kid, there could potentially be 450lbs on there. Obviously not constantly, but if my 5 year old daughter surprises mommy and daddy, I don't need to be picking the kid up off the cargo deck, cause the foldout broke...

Any comments and reviews would be appreciated

Do not know about the banshee - but the bed capacity I had also wondered about but more so on the dinette converted bed with our rockwood HW and not so much about the bunk ends. The dinette bed table hangs on just a couple strips of wood screwed into the bench seats.
So I googled the question - and seemed to get back an answer of about 1000 lbs for the bunk end bed - no camper brand mentioned. Somebody may have a better answer???
Can not find the answer to the dinette bed. and of course we did break the dinette bed - one strip pulled right out - was able to fix it and we reinforced those strips. Am also planning on putting PVC pipe as short legs under the table section to add support the table itself when used as a bed.

The capacity is usually at or over 1,000 lbs. It should have a sticker inside that shows the capacity.
Our cable bunks are rated at 1,200 lbs. (Coachmen Clipper Sport 126)
