Question about 251RKS roof

Just purchased a 2017 Surveyor 251RKS and the RV Park I need to move to has huge redwood trees covering the RV spaces. I watched the video on making the 251 and it's a one piece membrane roof so will falling small sticks hurt the roof or do I need to find another park?

Never heard of any sticks being good for the roof.

Just read your post. I plan on cutting branches from neighbors tree. Tree is covering my trailer with sap in warmer weather. I plan on doing while my trailer is parked in winter location. Even though roof is a hard membrane I would still worry about branches hitting it. You never know if a branch comes straight down what kind of damage it could cause.

Parking under trees is always a bit nerve racking. Small sticks the size of a pencil should not hurt's the branches that cause damage. I would find a park with trees that can give you some shade, but are not right over top of the trailer.

will the rv park owners allow the renter to cut the tree limbs? I would perhaps invest in one of the metal roofed RV covers with open sides instead, if it were me and I was only renting the space I park in
