Bed weight capacity question

Does anyone know the weight capacity of the two beds in my 2013 HW277?
It seems delicate to me.

We had a HW 27C Flagstaff and were told on our PDI that the limit on the bunk ends was 500 lbs WITH the support bars, and to make sure the supports were always in place before putting any weight on the bunks.

Never did see anything 'official' in the owner's manual, etc on the weight limit, however my husband, myself and at least one kid from time to time would sleep in the King end bunk and it held up just fine.

I would say 500 "feels" right. The support poles are what scare me- don't seem strong enough. Having some build same thing but out of aircraft aluminum for us.

we were told the slides were rated at 500 lbs (same camper BTW). I was pretty surprised when on deliver they pulled the bunks out without the supports at all. I always thought that was a huge no-no.
