Snow Load

Im trying to find info on how much snow load my TT (see sig) can handle. We got dumped on this weekend with over 12 of wet snow and another 12 expected this week. I can calculate the weight by measuring the water content but dont know how much load these things can take. NOTE: My TT has a flat roof (no crown). Anyone with experience on this issue?

Don't know how much is the max. Up here in Saskatchewan we get a lot of snow, too. Every time I go to the in-laws cabin where mine is stored I sweep it off. I'm more worried about ice dams pushing on the seals at the vents and other openings on the roof during the freeze/thaw of spring. They should handle quite a bit of weight as they can handle people. 24" of wet snow sounds awfully heavy, probably wouldn't hurt to remove some.

If you are worried...maybe it would be good to clean it off. Up here....I've never cleaned the snow off any RV trailer...nor have I ever had a problem with it. We don't usually get more than 50" per year.

I put an extension ladder up against the side last night - had 18" on top. I was able to remove all but 3-4" so I should be good now.

Todddob - Nice country where you live...I grew up in North Dakota and used to go to Sask. & Manitoba every year walleye fishing. Great memories.....

Thanks for your comments.
