365saq Bunk Bed Capacities

Does anyone know what the weigh capacities are for the 365saq upper and lower bunks? I've searched the forum and the internet to no avail.

Come to think of it, I don't ever remember seeing it published anywhere either.

We were told the bunks in our v-lite have a 250 lb rating.

The Sabres are 300. I know it doesn't answer the 365 question- but most I've seen are 250-300.

Is that only on the upper bunk or does it include the lower bunks as well?

Upper only has stickers on the wall.

The lower doubles as a bench.

And then for us- we went with a sofa in place of the other lower bunk.

I've seen 250 in each of of our full size bunks, 2 teen girls. The fold down wouldn't hold more than a toddler in the stock state(2012).

You capacities at least give me a general idea since we have no stickers on any of ours, top or bottom and there is nothing in the owners manual regarding weight limits.

We have a couple of "husky" friends going with us on a trip. I wouldn't even think about putting them on the top bunk but want to make sure we don't overload the bottom bunk either.

Thanks once again for your willingness to help!

The bottom full bunk probably isn't as strong as the bunk over the kitchen, since its basically a "top bunk" only 6" above the floor, because of having the trundle under it.

I never really thought about it that way!! I just figured if we put them on the bottom double, they wouldn't have as far to fall!! Actually, I think we're going to put one of them on the bottom double and set something up beside it in the floor with some memory foam. Hopefully, we'll be safe.

Use the air bed from sofa if you have.

I never found out anything definitive until now...thanks for the info. Looks like top bunk will be reserved for little ones only!
