Full walk-on roof ?

So i know that we all have ladders and i know its safe to walk on the roof but would it be safe to say...set a couple lawn chairs up there and have a nice cold beer with a buddy while parked beside a racetrack?

I spoke with one of the lot/maint guys at my local XLR dealer and he mentioned the owner has a large XLR fith wheel and frequents a yearly music festival nearby where he has been known to have rooftop parties on his rig.

Aside from possibly ripping the roof liner or falling off would you think the roof is strong enough for small patio ?

The new roofs are a sandwich of 1/8th in thick plywood over Styrofoam over 1/8th in thick plywood and wall paper.

It BARELY holds snow. Your call.
