Does anyone have any specs on roof framing, ie beam centers?

Thank you
Paul

I don't have that info, but the fiberglass shell is largely self-supporting. I've seen a bean where the nosecone connects to the roof shell. I believe there may be others near the fans/vents and the AC mounts. Wish I could help more...

I'm installing 4 200 watt solar panels on roof and just thought if I could land on beam it would be better, but the way way I am doing it I don't think it is necessary.

I think you should be good to go with just the roof as is. I've walked on the roof countless times and that roof it is solid as can be. I specifically looked at the flexible adhesive panels, but I think you should be good to go either way. It's not a typical RV roof.

Run your A/C very cold overnight and when you look at the roof early in the morning there will be a clear condensate outline of the aluminum frame work. You can then apply some blue painters tape to mark your locations. Let me know how your solar turns out, it is on my next bucket list project.
