Greyhawk Bottom Storage Weight Limit?

Just wondering if anyone can point me to the stated weight limit for the outside storage bins? We put a case of bottled water into one and noticed it sagged quite a bit when we went to take it out. I don't think the compartment is damaged per say but there does seem to be a permanent sag in it so now we're wondering what the limits are?

Thanks,
Jeff

Ours is the same and we have not over loaded it. I don't think Jayco is really built by Amish or their barns would fall down.

no idea either, but I placed a portable grill in the only space it would fit and discovered that it too caused the compartment to sag.

I cut 3/8 plywood to fit tightly inside the storage box to solve the sagging problem .

Good solution but I might loose that extra bit of storage that came from the sag

All of mine sag a bit too. Some of them have never had anything in them.

Yes, I still have empty storage spaces (and drawers on the inside) of my rig... In fact, I found another empty drawer in the kitchen area last weekend!

We have LOTs of inside empty and all the small outside hold nothing we want to bring so they are empty. The two large are not large enough, we manage and I'm sure in the future Jayco will make changes but this is our one and only motorhome so we adapt

To address OP's original question about "weight limits", I don't remember who it was, but one member called Jayco about it because they wanted to re-purpose a compartment for batteries. They ended up bringing support down from the floor and across the bottom of the compartment using strut channel and threaded rod.

I think they said 150 lbs? But that seems pretty high to me. I just went through a couple of mine yesterday cleaning up some stuff. Maybe if the weight were spread exactly evenly throughout, but not for what I would consider "normal" loading.

I'm not sure what your storage bays look like since I have a different brand rig, but I used plywood and outdoor carpet. I also braced the underside.

I cut plywood for mine to reinforce it.
