I have been told that you can walk on the top with no problems at the dealer. But I talked to other tech. and they told me you shouldn't. It came with a ladder and I have got on top to wash it and it seemed ok. The tech told me if you have to get on top use a board to help distribute the weight. Has any one heard any thing on this.

No I haven't, as far as I know it is ok to get on the roof but do exercise caution, make sure you do not have anything sharp stuck to your shoes or drop any sharp objects on the roof that might put a hole in the rubber and walk gently and watch where you walk, the edge of the roof comes up quickly. I would not attempt to put a board on the roof, if it slips and falls on the roof while putting it up there you have just crated a problem you tried to avoid.

I'd say it depends on the size of the person getting on the roof. For a normal sized person it shouldn't be a problem.

I have gotten on ours without any extra support and I've used a 3' square piece of plywood just to be sure. I'm a big guy so I figured a little extra support wouldn't hurt. My BIL gets on top of his all the time without laying anything down. Neither of us have experienced any issues from it.

Call FR and see what they tell you.

P.S. My ladder is rated for 300lbs.
