My former 2014 30WRS (sold it last week) has a walk on roof. Yes, there's a piece of sheet metal on top but if you look from the side down the roof, you can see all the trusses underneath. I've been up there multiple times washing the roof and installing MaxxAir vent covers.

Do you know how your 25ula roof is contructed? If you have a one piece aluminum roof it is laid on very thin luan right on the truss... Not very stable for walking on...

Unless they have changed the roof construction you can see not much support..

Yep, I sure do ... it is a seamless one-piece 14 gauge aluminum roof over 4" diameter roof rafters on 16" centers with solid cove molding edges. Our hauler is one of the new styles ... new-style nose cap and 6" taller. Our last hauler, a 2013 18EC, had a similar roof and perfectly suitable for walking on. I cannot imagine adding or removing a RV cover without being able to walk on the roof and have done it many times on each hauler.

According to FR our unit DOES NOT have a walk on roof. Many Work and Play units do not. We spend more time fixing and caring for this unit than we did for our wonderful little Gray Wolf that was half the price.

So ~~ to inspect the roof, do anything with AC or vents an industrial lift is required.
My 70s & 80s models had 3 or 4 piece metal roofs. Every 2 - 3 years you went up and painted with a fiber paint or at least sealed the seams. IMO a much better but heavier product.

I walk on mine all the time. Just stay on the trusses and I don't see any problem with it

UPDATE: We got our unit pressure tested.

It leaks around the right side wheel well, which I figured. It leaks and was NOT sealed around the back spot light and other exterior lights.

But WORST of all? The WHOLE roof needs to be resealed. We were told there was LOTS of sealant missing.... it was NEVER there. Most likely NEVER sealed at the factory during the build. MISSING sealant... NEVER there!! I am NOT happy!!

So now we are spending $$$ to get it repaired and sealed the RIGHT way. "ARGH"

Sorry to hear about your troubles, not sure how you are going about sealing but they do make a product that you can paint on to seal the roof.
