I have heard 75-80 pounds. However, I know of people of 100ish pounds that have slept on top without freefalling!

Thanks,
I guess that means it's more appropriate for a couple chihuahuas, as opposed to my 2 greyhounds

I was going to test mine with my 6'3 220 frame, but I guess I better leave it for the kids.....

Our daughter slept on the upper bunk when she was a teenager. She was about 5'-8" and 125 lbs.

I'm surprised it isn't more than that. I'd imagine it would be fairly simple to add some support to it, though. In our Trillium, I've been more concerned about the stupid leg system being knocked out by accident than collapsing from the weight (see related post).

I slept on mine for months (180 lbs) before building a rear bunk. The plywood was sagging end-to-end, so I reinforced it, but then it started sagging in the middle. I, too, was more concerned about knocking a pole loose than anything actually breaking.

According to an owners manual I found online (1976) top bunk max is 85#

I wouldn't be as concerned about the weight limit on the top bunk as much as the danger to the poor person on the bottom bunk if the top fell Besides the bottom looks pretty claustrophobic to me!
