bunk bed

Does anyone know what the weight limit for the back bunk bed is? I would assume that my 4 year old daughter would be light enough, but what about my 13 year old or her friends? thanks in advance!!

I would suggest checking your coach's manual. If the bunk is the "hammock" type that Airstream used in the 1960s it may have a weight limit of 90 pounds - - at least that was the limit placed on the Hammock Bunks that were part of the original equipment on my '64 Overlander. If you don't have a manual for your coach, you can obtain copies of the manual from:

Manuals

Q: I need an owners and service manual for my Airstream. Where can I get one?
A: The first owners manuals were published in 1964. Prior to that, the owner received a brown envelope containing parts lists and other helpful information on the accessories in his trailer. The VAC has started making these available in the Members Archive section. A service manual with instructions for performing service operations did not exist until 1972.
You can get photocopies of owners manual (1964+) and service manuals (1972-1986) from:

Helen Davis Secretarial Services
PO Box 484 Sidney, OH 45365
(937)492-8885

Prices are about $33 and $70 respectively. After 1986 the Owners Manuals included available service information
*The above was quoted from the Vintage Airstream Club website.

Good luck with your Coach!

Sorry, I should explain further. My bunk is the back of the couch that folds out and is supported from the ceiling with black webbing straps. When not in use, it returens to function as the couch back.

The concept isn't terribly different from the "Hammock Bunk" - - essentially a rectangular aluminum frame with canvas cover that is supported on one side by a pair of aluminum wall brackets and on the other by a pair of steel cables that hook into receivers mounted to cieling ribs. In the case of the "Hammock Bunk" as well as with the arrangement in your coach, I suspect that the limitation is in the support mechanism that attaches to the cieling.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin
