How load bearing is it?

No official weight rating yet (and there probably will never be) as you have to test something to the breaking point consistently before you can really determine that. And even then, it is all relative as to distribution of weight and the near infinite set of conditions that can be applied. Anyone who tells you any different is only being deceptive to sell his product.


That said, I have been crawling and walking all over this thing (I weigh 170 (ish)) and have hauled some hundred pound items with no issue. Nor would I expect any with 1/8 inch aluminum plate for the deck and 1/8 inch steel lower mounts. It should offer the best weight savings, flexibility and strength for the job at hand.


We do warn that the lateral edges by the door should not be used as steps to a roof rack and that it is not a trampoline....the average american is getting bigger every year. :O
