Adding weight on a slideout

I want to replace the factory installed Winnebago "Rest Easy" sofa in my slide with a double recliner couch. While, I have no concerns on overall coach weight, do I need to worry about added weight on the slide itself.

I haven't found the weight for the Rest Easy sofa bed, but I am assuming that it weighs around 100 lbs. I am not sure I will find a double recliner that weights less than 250 lbs.

I appreciate any an all opinions or thoughts on:
  • the weight of the factory sofa.
  • recommendations on a light weight double recliner under 75".
  • specs or thoughts on how much weight a slide can support.
  • any other successes or failures of the knowledgeable members of this forum.

I have no idea about this but I do make anyone sitting to get up before I move the slide just in case.

No, not unless you do something extreme, e.g. loading a pallet of bricks onto the slideout.
