B190 - Top bunk weight limit?

Is there a weight limit for the top bunk on the B-vans? Are they designed for two adults to sleep up top?

Thanks in advance.

interesting question. seems so. I haven't noticed any indications to the contrary on my 1991 B-Van and it is a full size queen bed.

Takes some rather agile people to get up there, though.

Ooooh...good question. My impression is that it's fairly strong - I know two adults can use it without a problem. I believe it is supported on the sides and front by the fiberglass top and underneath by the (hopefully reinforced?) roof of the van...
