Half Size Sliding Cargo Tray Sagging

Does anybody know the weight capacity for the half tray (towards the back) in a 43 foot Ventana (assuming Dutch Star is the same)? Can't find any info on it. Ours is sagging and almost impossible to move anymore. Similar looking trays on Amazon state 800 pounds. We don't think we had anywhere near 800 pounds on it.

Anybody else having problems with sagging? How much weight do you put on yours?

Thanks,
Dan

I had the same issue which is caused by the the 1/2 inch OSB sagging. Mine was so bad the slide wouldnít move out. To fix this I removed it and replaced it with 3/4 inch plywood. I used the OSB as a pattern to cut the new plywood and then covered with similar felt carpet I got from Home Depot. Now I can put as much weight on it as I want with no issue.

Ours came without the wood (dealer install) and I did the same as "Tigerfan1"....3/4" plywood and HD carpet.

Mine did the same. Flipped over OSB and covered with felt. So far so good.

Are we talking about the slide out cargo trays? Mine are all metal.

The frames on mine are metal but the floor under the carpet is OSB wood which sagged.

The frame is steel but the floor is wood, at least in mine.

Good idea about turning it around. Iíll try that, at least as an interim solution. The board is plywood but it may not be 3/4Ē. If not I will probably replace it.

I took a good look and I was wrong. They are wood, very disappointed. I have a lot of weight in the 3/4 bay, so far so good.

I ran a piece of steel in the middle before I dropped in the wood.
