What is the Penthouse bed's weight limit?

I am a big guy, 6'2" at about 235(maybe slightly more). Any, I was wondering about the penthouse bed's weight limit. What is the max weight limit for the upper bed, anyone know??

Same here... me and she + bedding ~ 400 lbs. I think I read somewhere that this is the limit

First time I used the ph bed, I didn't set it in the channels correctly, kinda crossways a bit... it was a big letdown! She was not there for that wreck, thank goodness.

I was told 500 but it might depend on the year. There was a story about one breaking. I'm at 300 and it holds up for me...knock on wood

I would also consider force in addition to weight...so it depends on what you do up there and for how long.
