We have a Tiffin Allegro RED 38QBA. We have access to the bathroom at all times and use it regularly as we travel down the road. There is no problem getting to the bathroom with all sliders in and travel ready.

I would be interested to know what Tiffin model you saw that did not give access to the bathroom.

Does anyone know the max weight on the top bunk in the encounter? Salesperson said 200-250 but There was no sticker stating that. The bounder bunk house state 350 lbs.

Yea, a week late but I'm just seeing the thread. They're probably referring to the 38QBA's big brother, the Phaeton 40QKH. The bathroom door only opens about a quarter of the way when the slides are in.

Correct. The QBA was MUCH better for layout!

Unfortunately, I suspect that many manufacturers don't bother testing for that (or if they do, don't publish the numbers).

In the bunk beds I built (which are just for our kids so weight capacity isn't a huge concern - I don't think my oldest son is even 70 lbs), I put about 200-250lbs of weight on it and looked for sagging (didn't notice any) and then left the weight there for 3-4 days to see if there was only noticeable problems long term.
