Sunline bunk bed capacity

Hi all. I'm new to the forum. Just bought a 1982 Sunline 15' camper, and was wondering what the weight rating is for the overhead bunk bed over the dinette? Will it hold me (190lbs), or is it made just for small children?
Thanks
John

Hi John,

Welcome to the group and congrats on your Sunline purchase. My best friend had a super clean 1982 151/2SB for many years. He sold it about 2 years ago, I wonder if the people that bought it, might have sold it again.
As for the weight on the overhead bunkbed, I don't recall the ratings, but I am thinking in the range of like maybe 125 to 150 lbs. It is bascially designed for small kids and/or storage.

Kitty

The side supports are very weak I would think 100# max I turned mine into storage. I took one section out and turned the front part up and fixed it in place gives us a fair amount of storage.

Thanks for the info. I'm trying to figure out sleeping arrangements for the 4 of us. My kids are 3 and 4, and I don't want to put them in the top just yet.

Kitty- Was your friend's camper located in SW Virginia? If so, it could be the same camper. The guy I bought it from had it about 2 years, and it is very clean.

My friends Sunline was sold to folks over towards CharlesTown, WV. It was sure a super clean little rig.

He used the front bunk as his entertainment center, and the way he did it, it was not permanent so he was able to easily put it back to original without making any extra holes.

With 3 & 4 year olds, you might get by with them both sleeping on the dinette, and when that get a bit crowded, you can purchase a "net" type thing for the upper bunk that is designed to keep kids from falling out. I'm not sure how they work because I've never tried to have one of our greyhounds sleep in the upper bunk

OH, did anyone mention pictures, we love to see pictures of Sunlines, so if/when you get a chance we'd love to see your little treasure.

Kitty

I'll try to get some pics uploaded in a day or so. So far I'm really liking the camper.

We had a 16'er and I'm pretty sure the capacity is only 100#. We had a 3 year old fall out once, but since we always put a bunch of pillows on the floor he actually slept through the fall. After that we put a bed rail up and never had a problem.

As far as I know, all Sunline cabinet bunks have a 100 lb maximum.

There is a sticker inside my cabinet that says "100 pounds Max with Optional Bunk" which is strange, because I don't have the bunks.

Opie - somehow that "cabinet assembly" swings down to make a "bunk".....I think!

There is no hinge on the cabinet if you didn't have the optional bunk. You can easily tell the ones with that has the option from the factory, as they have small windows in the bunk area. Mine has no hinge and no window, so the bunk was not installed from the factory. But I have seen others where the owners added them after.

This thread really has brought back memories. I had a 1985 23' TT that had the fold-down bunk bed over the top of the head of the double master bed. When I bought it we only had one child, a 3 year old girl. She used to say that she was "going to sleep on her shelf", LOL! Mt son soon came along and we upgraded to a 2670 with the double bunks in the back, the master bedroom in the front. I recall a sticker under the thin foam matress in the 23' though. I recall it said 100 pounds. The 2/3 of the shelf that was hinged was supported only by a couple of cleats on the side, so I would not have trusted it with too much. Oh - we also went to K-Mart and bought an inexpensive folding bunk rail. It folded up inside the cabinet when we went somewhere without my daughter, and wished to use the area for storage. Best of luck to you.

Well, Now you tell me! When my brother and his wife have come camping with us, he's taken the top bunk and I'd say he's probably close to 200#
So, I can say for sure that 100# is way lower than it will handle but I'm also going to reconsider letting him go up there again!

Wow I'm glad I was not sleeping under him! I had no use for the bunk in mine and took one section out turned it into a fixed storage area mounted a stereo system inside and called it good. In looking at the construction I thought maybe a 100# was a little over the top the side supports over the windows looked to me to be the weak point.

The newer built in Sunline bunks are much heavier then the older 80's vintage that folded down from overhead. But I do not know the weight limit on the 2004's.

Forum member, Mack C-85 has the T-267SR if I recall right. His might be a year or so newer but I would not expect a lot of difference to the 2004 models. Mack should be along shortly to respond.

Hope this helps

John

We have a 2007 T-276SR which is basically the same floor plan. It changed in 2006, if I remember correctly.

We were told not to worry about it. I think the number was something like 300 lbs. The upper bunk is solidly attached to three and a half walls for support. (Front, Back, Outside, and the inside wall of the bathroom) The bottom bunk is hinged to allow for storage, but is solidly supported on all four sides.

They will definitely support an average sized adult without any issues.
