At the factory they sometimes have 3 guys installing things like A/Cs at one time. I've had 2 foot of snow on my Wildcat at times. I'm 300lb and walk all over the roof washing it. Don't worry!

My Wildcat has curved wood trusses like a house and I saw Flagstaff has a 6" laminated roof with aluminum studs for support. They both are plenty strong.

If you are concerned about it, you can use 1" X 8" boards to help distribute the weight a little better. I try to crawl on my hands and knees versus "walking" on my roof (figuring 4 points of contact is better than 2 for weight distribution). I'm 200lbs for perspective. If you have a few boards you can put your knees on them (NOTE, just be very careful how you move them, so you don't poke the roof with a corner or edge).

Im a big boy too I always worry about when Im going to have to get up there myself . I was thinking maybe some 3/4 inch plywood to help spread the load when the time comes .

Weight on roof-

I weigh 275, I washed my
roof yesterday . I've been told by the dealer I bought my 2017 cedar creek silverback from. If it's got a ladder it's good for 300 pounds. I would not use the attached ladder, although I dis my pdi using it. Roof seems very solid. I believe the roof arches are aluminum . My neighbors has a park Model and if I weighed 100 pounds I wouldn't get on it
