other than that sure. just don't go stomping on it. RV roofs should be plenty strong enough to support a 250lb person. if you are extra concerned you can use small 2x2 sections of half inch plywood to help distribute the weight

I go up on my Flagstaff 26RKS all the time to clean it and to seal areas as needed. As Greg said, don't do jumping jacks or hold a dance up there, but normal walking will be fine.

I always wear sneakers or something that is flat. no heals like in a work boot or hiking shoe. and walk softly....your not on the ground, so sometimes you may feel a little give, and your heal may dent in a little. as long as the rubber doesnt tear, your good to go.

Wear tennis shoes.
Foam flip flops are slippery as sh-- well slippery as you know what when
I also suggest putting down your stabilizer jacks!!
I clean mine every season with simple green and water. I use a mop
so I don't have to get on my knees for most of it and do the tight places
with a sponge.
Simple green is kinda slippery so I try to rinse an area before I step on it.
I -think- getting that grunge off there helps not to have black streaks
on the sides as bad but we still get them ;-(
