Doubt you will have much luck finding a one person ladderstand with a load rating over 300. I am sure there are a few. Why are you not wanting a two person stand? They are rated for 500lbs and usually can be had for under $300. Hope someone can help you out.

why 300 capacity ?? why not 500 for most all size of hunter it will make easy for anyone to choice, for sample 110 lb smokin girl get in 500 lb capcity single ladder make it more comfortable if 300 lb hunky man get on ladder for comfrotable i think they are pick on heavyweight people as " obese " so wont give a best ladder so mean they force big people to LOSE the weight??

i remember back in 97 and 98 there is some 400 to 450 capacity treestand that will do the job and the future of treeland capacity lower and lighter ??

Just buy a two man stand and be done with it. We are "Obese". The stands that are rated for lighter people are usually lighter in weight themselves which is a great thing when you have to pack it in a mile.
