That's a good question!
I also wonder how much weight RV roofs are designed to carry.
Here, in the northern half of Wisconsin, building codes require that all residential
roofs be designed and built to withstand a minimum of 40 lbs per square foot.
As of yesterday the snow on the roof of my coach was 20" deep.
If I'm not mistaken, 20" of snow can weigh as much as 21 lbs. per sq. ft.
If every sq. ft. of 20" deep snow weighs 21 lbs, the total weight of the snow on the roof of my 35' coach is about 5,500 lbs.
BTW, as I type this, it's snowing again
