Will it hold or not??

Hi All
I am wanting to get on the roof of my 1979 Dodge Fleetwood Tioga to do some needed maintenance on the rooftop cooler. I have Coleman's version of the Turbo Cool RV swamp cooler. While it works good, the unit needs the old and cracked shroud cover replaced, and the sprayer could use replacing after many years of service.
There is a rear mounted ladder that goes to the roof. But will the roof hold human weight? That is the question. I thought about setting up a scaffolding over the roof so I don't have worry about causing roof damage. It's an aluminum roof and the cooler is probably less than 50 pounds. So any ideas would help. Thanks.

I expect the roof is built to hold an average man of 200 lbs with ease.
