I want to use a platform bed frame for a softside waterbed. Does anyone know if there is a weight limit for these platform beds? The store managers have no idea.

Thanks.
Cindy

Hi Cindy:

Most well made platform beds can handle a softside flotation bed.

The thing to do is add your own base reinforcement under the basic platform. You can build it from 3/4 or 5/8 plywood, and that shold be ample support for your waterbed.

If you are not handy with wood projects like this try Home Depot or Lowes. They usually have a bulletin board of local handymen and women who can build this simple framework for you.

I hope these suggestions help.
