2003 DutchStar 3803 max sofa weight

Iím in the process of swapping out my jack knife sofa for a triple recliner that weighs 259 lbs. will the slide be able to handle 259lbs? I have no idea what the original sofa weighs.

Google the jacknife and get the weight . If your with 125/150 pounds I'd say your safe. My sofa sleeper along with my kitchen are on my slideout.

My 99 had the magic bed option in the main ( drivers side slide ) when I pulled it out , I had to break it down into six pieces to make the weight manageable.
JMHO: at 259# for the replacement your good .
