Old wives tale, IMHO.

When I ordered my Mini Lite, the ladder was an option (which I got). I highly doubt they strengthen the roof if your order the ladder!

Not necessarily. Ladder is a factory option on many units.

Correct. Let me add to that stay away from any openings cut into the roof, as it weakens the roof somewhat. AC units, vents, etc. And watch your gets slippery when wet.

If you look in the brochure on page 11 it says full walk on roof.

Dealer has not been doing there homework. LOL
