Yeah I'm thinking it'll be ok just worried. My folks took me camping several times 30+ years ago in their popup and wanted to take them out in mine. They haven't been camping in 25 ish years but lit up when I told them I had a camper. They have since put on a fair amount of weight and yeah... just don't want to have an issue when I'm trying to do something nice.

No, they just switched to the other bed over the tongue until I got there. They told me right away what happened.

I think it is 1110lbs. We pick up our 2280bhesp tomorrow morning. Is your lifting system really loud? When dealer showed us it was really loud.

Yep, the electric lift systems are super loud. I feel bad sometimes when I pull in at 9:00 at night sometimes, but then the roof is up in less than 30 seconds, so less than the old days on my old pop up when I had to crank it.

Waking the dead loud....

I messed around with trying to limit the noise by putting a pad between the frame and the motor. It helped a very small amount but not worth the effort.

Did anyone find an answer to the weight limit? We think we went over because our inside wall pulled away from the frame...between my husband, myself and our dog we are about 490 pounds. We have a 2019 Rockwood tent camper premier, model 2716G. We were on the King bed.

Since this thread is almost 2 years old, not sure if you'll get a definite answer.
But generally popup and hybrid beds are rated for at least 1000lbs.

We have a 2014 HW-277. King bed out front. Our typical working load is about 450 to 475 pounds including mattress pad, electric blanket, several more blankets, and 4 pillows. We camp a LOT, so our rig has been out no fewer than 50 times...always boondocking on rough terrain.

We haven't experienced any signs of the bed being overloaded, even when dynamic loads are applied.

I have noticed that the doorway gap has opened up slightly at the top, which I presume is at least partially related to the bed leveraging that relatively unsupported sidewall a bit. On my rig, the door is only about 20" from the front wall of the camper....other campers' doorways are located in different spots depending on interior layout. My rig is wood-framed, so rigidity is not a strong point.

The pipe frames that support the bed ends show no signs of stress, but the weak point in the pipe supports is the hinge pivot between the horizontal and diagonal pipes. Watch that area for signs of fatigue or distortion.

On my rig, the lower, diagonal leg of the pipe frame can be nested in any one of 4 slots on the A-Frame or Rear Bumper. Choose your slot to avoid any noticeable sag in bed from where it slides out of the trailer body to outermost point. This ensures that the pipe frames are keeping the sliders properly aligned and that you minimize the leveraging on the PUP body...especially on the door side. The pipe frames carry the lion's share of the load, and the slides and aluminum bed frame only carry load at the point where they join the body....and add rigidity to the plywood platform.

P.S. Completely unrelated to weight rating, we found that the pipe frames are very attractive "nesting" areas for bugs...typically black (house) flies, but occasionally bees or wasps would move in. On some occasions, hundreds of flies would come out of the pipes when we broke down the camper. Spray foam works, but it's messy. I used household window and door caulk to plug the ends of the pipes. Big improvement, and it eliminates all that extra weight of flies in the pipes.
