As others have pointed out, getting from a rear ladder onto the roof is risky business unless you are young and not very tall. I use mine only as a mount my outside cell antenna.
I get on the roof for several reasons:
1. Wash EPDM every couple months (greatly extends roof life)
2. Service and clean AC units
3. Inspect roof for potential leak areas (Need I say more)
4. Sweep off slide outs because we usually camp in State Campgrounds surrounded by all those lovely trees and the debris will wreck the slide out seals.
As you can see, I have no problem climbing onto the roof. Those of you who are more timid souls should probably keep your feet firmly on the ground
