Phaeton Under Bed Storage Wt Limit

Recently started medical treatment that requires about 400 lb of medical fluid supplies.

We are trying to determine how to distribute the supplies. One thought is to store 125-200 lbs under the bed. I have looked for info from Schwintek and Tiffin and did not find any info. Looking for info on what the weight limits are, for under bed storage. Any ideas? I do plan to call Tiffin and ask the question.

Tiffin will most likely be the only place to get the correct answer.

I seriously doubt the under bed storage will support more than about 50lbs. I've had the "floor" out of ours a couple of times and it's just 1/4" plywood without any real support. In addition to the the lack of support, any extra weight you put on the bed will stress the Schwintek slide mechanism. The floor of the rear closet and under the coach are probably the best options.

I neglected to state that the fluid has temperature storage requirements of 45-100°F.

Unless you plan on camping in really cold weather, basement storage should do.
