Walking on the roof. Bounder 35E

I have a 2004 Bounder 35E. Can I walk on the roof without doing any damage? Other than falling off what should I avoid? Any weak areas up there?

Maybe I shouldn't ask but: How much do you weigh? If 350#'s I wouldn't do it.

I have the same 2004 35e and there is no problem areas on the roof to worry about. I wash mine every spring, as you mentioned just don't fall. Safe travels.

Somewhere I recall reading 300 lbs., I think that was what the ladder was rated for. I push 240 and seem to be up there a lot and haven't fallen thru yet.

Watch out for the front and rear fiberglass caps and don't step close to their seams,you could crack them as they're relatively thin.Other than that,go for it.I've owned numerous RVs over the years and never had a problem(I weigh 230lbs).Wear soft sole shoes or go barefoot as the epdm(rubber) roof membrane doesn't respond well to heals! Good luck.
Gary.
