Walk on roof? WW 21 RBS

Hi all
Proud owner of a 2014 Wildwood 21RBS, I am just wondering if I am able to walk on top of the roof in order to inspect the seals, and to make it easier to put a cover over it for the winter? It has no integral ladder, and I have heard that means that the roof will not support a person's weight....any advice would be appreciated!

Yes, you can walk on it. Be slow and be nice to your roof.clean roof and re caulk seams when needed

These are units built with light weight materials. So there is a limit on how much and WHERE weight can be put on the roof. If you 'think' that you may be too heavy, then work from the sides and not get on the roof. I am not responsible or anyone on this forum, to you, if I suggest to 'go for it' and walk on your roof and a problem comes up because you walked on it. It is your unit. For the 'best' answer to your question, call and talk to the manufacturer and go by their recommendations. I will and have walked on mine and it is fine for me. I have never 'asked' and take full responsibility for my unit.
