Can I walk on my roof???

I have a 2015 Sunset Trail Reserve 33BD and am wondering if I can walk on the roof at 280-290 pounds? There is no installed ladder suggesting to me that maybe people were not intended to be on the roof however, how do you get close enough to inspect/repair the vents and A/C openings? It's hard/dangerous enough trying to clean it from a ladder but would be COMPLETELY impossible to re-seal and cracked caulking.

Also, someone recommended some type of roof tape for repairs....has anyone ever hear of this, remember the name of it and would you agree this is the best method of maintenance/repair?

Cheers

Quick answer is very carefully.

My roof is the same way. No ladder. My dealer told me to lay a half sheet of plywood down first. I put a blanket down and a half sheet of plywood when I installed a fantastic vent. Seems to do the trick. Didn't hear any noise from the roof when I was walking on it.
