Ultralite TT with roof rated for walking on?

DW and I are looking at buying our first TT and want to get one that is well made and will last given the cost. We have a Ford F150XLT w/ 5.0L V8 and full towing package.

So far the only brand of ultalite TT that advertises that their roof is walk on rated and will even ship it with a ladder installed is Winnebego. We are looking at something of a size like the Minnie...about 25-30 ft with weight below about 5600 lb.

Does anyone know of any other brands of ultalite TT where you can order it with a ladder installed and its advertised as being ok to walk on the roof?

NEXT QUESTION.. at what Weight is the walk on roof rated... 125.... 300 pounds????
ASK them First.

Ultralites are Light for a reason.

lightest materials .. less mass, thinner supports.

I so disliked my "LITE". materials, feel, noise, comfort.

Jayco's jay feather brochure say's they stacked 4500 lbs. on the roof truss system. Not sure how it was done.

When I walk on mine I can feel some give in the plywood between the trusses. 170lbs.

The Cougar Xlite I had came with a factory ladder and I was on the roof several times. It felt very solid and I go about 210....

If it comes with a ladder attached, it's made to get up on the roof
