Bed and couch weights?

Hi,

I have a rear-bed 31' Sovereign. It was originally a twin but came with the front couch and rear beds gutted, so I'm not sure how much they weighed.

I'm investigating options for a new double bed and couch. Could someone give me a "maximum safe estimate" for the weight of the furnishings in front and rear?

In particular, I'm looking at a storage bed that weighs about 160 pounds by itself, and am wondering if that's too steep or about on par with the original twins.

Any other tips for keeping a good weight balance during remodel would be appreciated. Thanks!

Mine were made with an aluminum frame front, aluminum strips back to aluminum wall cleats, 1/4" plywood deck and a foam mattress. There were plastic tubs inside the frame. Very light.

160 sans mattress. It's got a hydraulic system that lifts the whole mattress up. Awesome storage but worry about the weight.

Thanks Splitrock!

Ditto that mine were all aluminum frames as well. I can lift them with one hand. If I had to guess the frames themselves are 20 to 25 lbs. The plywood would be another 10 to 15 lbs. The matress would be the heaviest, maybe only 30 lbs. So probably 70 lbs per twin bed and i have the full L shaped couch and it probably weighs total 200 lbs or less.
