    Hey everyone, I'm heading to prime at Springfield Missouri to start a new life there. And im really excited about starting a new chapter. But one thing is bugging me. Does anyone know how much the upper bed ina training truck would hold in pounds. Has me a little nervous about it.

    my trainer weighed about 350 lbs and it never buckled under him when he was being trained in a Cascadia.

    I commend his trainer though, brave soul.

    We had a few hundred in bins up there roped down and capped so they went no where.

    Usually no one rides or sleeps up there when truck is in motion for obvious reasons.

    4 years ago when I went thru orientation, big old white guy he weighed over 300.

    He was the class clown, knew it all, arrived to class with his headset on.
    Always cracking jokes and dropping stink bombs, he actually shat himself in class and had to go get a fresh pair of draws.

    Turns out the class clown was sent packing after he broke his trainers upper bunk in his first week out.
