so going to take dinnette out. And instead of table and chairs now we are thinking of adding recliners (and tv tables LOL) which are heavier then the dinnette

worried about too much weight and it maybe bending the tracks???

Anyone have any idea how much weight they will hold?

What type of slide-out mechanism do you have? Schwintek or conventional? If the former, I can't help. Call Lippert since they own the system.

With a conventional mechanism, I added quite a bit of weight w/o problems. I replaced the dinette and sofa with a full 11ft wide unit with a storage sofa and computer work station with more storage. The basic unit weighed more than the factory furniture and we stored sewing machines, dog food, drinking water, sodas, oil filled electric heaters and more.

This isn't meant to be funny but: If you and perhaps another person can sit on the sofa while the slide is operating and you don't have issues, you should be safe adding that weight to the slide??

We have the fridge and stove on our pushout a2012 model. The pushout is beginning to slope outwards and having trouble opening and closing several of the cabinet doors. Does anyone have any problem with theirs???

We replaced the lightweight junk furniture in our former Cruiser with two La.Z Boy recliners and a reclining love seat. No issues. Our current Itasca MH has the Lippert slide system. The slide is about 18' containing an 8' sectional sleeper plus the dinette. We have been sitting on the sofa full time for the past five months with no slide issues.

Thanks Art & Karen:

We have a 40 ft. Hampden Park Model, The pushout has a full size fridge, 24 inch stove, 40 inch of cupboards, a lazy boy chair and a computer table. The pushout is sloping down and some of the cupboard doors are not opening /closing properly. We really like the unit and would like to see it repaired. We live in it five months of the year.
