    Hello! Me and boyfriend just bought a 86 Coleman Columbia! I have not been in it yet ( I’m at my parents) he is living it up right now! But I’m really worried about weight limit on the beds. I can’t find anywhere that gives a weight limit for the beds , we both weight about 255-260 lbs and our 6 yr old is about 45lbs I’m guessing . Which side is best to sleep. Any way to add more support on the beds ?

    From what I have gathered they are rated 1000# or more per bed. You should be fine.

    The DW and I are in the about the same range of weight as you are and when we first got the Columbia she was nervous about the bunk ends. For the first few trips we used the dinette bed which felt a lot sturdier under us though it was a bit cramped. Finally I said lets try the pull out and it held our weight just fine.

    Hi Everyone!

    I have a 1994 Columbia that did not have an awning on it when I bought it. The rail is 7'6", what size awning do I order? I have found conflicting info. Thanks!
