bunk over cab weight limit?

Trying to find info about the recommended weight limit on the bunk over the cab in our Forest River Sunseeker. Nothing in our manuals that I can find. Anyone have a resource?

This was about what I figured.... Should work for two medium sized adults, then.

Mine also has a sticker that says max weight 350. It also says not to have anyone there when driving.

Have to assume that is within the limits of the over cab bunk. I can't see that an extra 50# will cause any damage.

That is 1 area I would not want to come close to the max weight. I know that area is common for leaks and wouldn't want to give any extra stress on that area.

I would agree here... Concerned, but also confused that no weight limit is posted in the coach or in the manual and that the size of the bunk seems adequate for two people. Wish there were a more definite guideline so we could make an informed decision specific to our unit.

Can you try contacting the manufacturer? I'm sure they would have that info for you.
I hope you are able to get that information.
