NASCAR Roof Damage

Great weekend at Talladega. I am really amazed at how many coach owners will have 5 or 6 folks on the roof watching the race and bouncing around. I have to wonder how many of these coaches have sustained some roof damage.

Wonder what they must cover the roof to protect it. I would not want anyone on my rubber roof.

Wouldn't have anyone on my roof. Just asking for trouble especially after a few brews.

A good size piece of plywood or some other material to evenly distribute the weight is often used by large numbers of fans with little adverse effect on the roof. At least that is what people have related to me, but then again, I don't think that I would be too excited about doing it!

Coming down the ladder after a few adult beverages might be exciting!

All but 1 poster has never been to an NASCAR event. Our neighbors had 5 folks, ones next to us had 8, and the ones behind had 4 people AND a flat screen, a four coolers, and a bbq.

Best bet for climbing up & down is getting a standalone ladder. I wouldnt trust a rivet fastened ladder.

One class A toyhauler we looked at had a ladder in the garage, a hatch to the roof and a floor and railings on top. I wish mine had that, but ours had other features we liked best.

Could you just install an escalator? Maybe a lift truck and use it like an elevator?

Great idea! And hand rails that lift out of the roof as well as a TV, refrigerator and awning...

Could be a cottage industry. They charge $40 to evac your holding tanks.

It was eye opening... but these werent $3,000 rigs. These were $800k++++ units. Guess you only live once.

It's funny that everyone's joking about the rooftop entertainment. Looking at the New MH thread in this very forum, you will find a link to a 3 million dollor MH (Bottom Line - This motor home is yours ... for $3 million). Well, just past half way down, and just before "Top Ten Vehicles for Teens", you will see that this MH states, "And if itís a dance party, another feature is a pop-up roof terrace adding yet 250 square feet more space." Wow, I guess someone took the rooftop entertainment serious
