Hello I recently purchased an 08 model and found the ceiling around the bathtub skylight was soft. I was just gonna caulk around the roof. Is it ok to walk up there or no?. Thanks.

I walk on our roof and I'm 210#. I don't do jumping jacks. The roof doesn't feel soft at all. 

We have to access the roof on occasion. My suggestion would be to give it a try, just be really careful and see how it feels. 

Good luck

I have been walking on my roof from the beginning nearly seven years ago. It never seemed soft to me.

Good Luck

   In my opinion only, if it has a ladder to get up there, the roof is made to be walked on. If it doesn’t, it isn’t. 
 I can tell that on the roof of my Outback 250urs, that the food isn’t made to support much weight at all. All of my roof inspection and maintenance is done from the side. If I do have to be on the roof, I use plywood or Styrofoam material to distribute my weight. (225#)

This is the information that I used when deciding to walk on my roof. Over the years and with model changes always refer to the owners manual and check available information on the net.

Our trailer didn't come with a ladder but it was blocked from the factory for one so you will have to check it out for your self.

 

 

 

Good Luck

Yes, you can walk on the roof even without an attached ladder per Keystone.  How else would you service your A/C, vents, etc etc etc?
