Palomini roof type?

All the brochure says is....

"Laminated walkable roof"

What does that mean?

It means you can get on the roof within reason and not cause damage. I don't know what the weight specs are but Palomino could probably give them to you. A walkable roof comes in handy when touching up and reapplying the roofing sealant or doing other work from the top. You do still need to be careful that you don't damage the roof membrane.

On our 2014 the roofing membrane is the Alpha Systems, Alpha Ply product. It has been discontinued for a newer product and I can't say if Palomino still uses it or not. They did tell me when I asked about sealants to use the Alpha Systems sealants in order to maintain the roof.

I don't know what is it specifically as Alpha Systems site doesn't talk about it anymore and refers you to their newer product. About all I can find is it is a plastic and rubber based roofing material that is supposed to be significantly lighter than EPDM. You would need to check with Palomino to determine what company's roofing you have on your trailer.

For reference here is a link to the Alpha Systems Product Care webpages.

Product Care & Warranty - Alpha Systems, LLC

If you have a Dicor roofing product I would use their product care instructions.
