We had a 2002 Coleman TT that cautioned against walking on the roof without placing 1/2" plywood on the roof to distribute the walker's weight. We did use some plywood and never felt the roof move or bend under walking.

Agree with most comments. The roof will handle your weight, but not the ladder!

Our Georgetown (an '02) had a note in the owner's manual NOT to walk on the rubber roof. So why the hell did they put a ladder on the back wall?

I went up there once to check on a roof a/c issue, but didn't feel comfortable. Never went up there again, but used an extension ladder against the side of the rig and did visual inspections only. Any issues showed, I took it to an RV service center.

I am 310 and have been on mine many times, I just step flat footed and lightly(if that is possible), mainly because I do not care for ladders but this is part of RV so I deal with it. I also make sure the stabilizers are down to eliminate the bounce, it does not help that when I am parked in my driveway and on the trailer I can see down over the hill which is a 50 ft drop.

Wow. I guess they make these roofs pretty strong then. That is quite a bit of weight concentrated on a single area.

I am glad to hear they make them so solid.
