Do you have a roof ladder attached to the rig? If not, you better call CR to verify.

I just went up to do an inspection. I would try to stand in thrafters. Even then it was a little sketchy, but no problems.

I'm pushing the 3s and I walked on the roof of my Cruiser the other day to replace the worm shaft and elevation gear on my antenna. The only place that concerned me was where the roof meets the back wall, otherwise it is pretty firm.

Only walk on the rafters cause its only walkable for maintenance. If you are going to do any work , bring a small piece of 3/8 plywood to even out the weight when you are sitting or kneeling. You won't be able to install a ladder as the walls are hung and there is nothing to bolt them to .

While we are talking roof maintenance, has anyone found the right color lap sealent for the new roofs?

Thanks Mark. Crossroads e-mailed me back within 1 day. Crossroads uses Alpha Systems 1015 Self Leveling Sealant. (Color Beige)

Good to know what product they use on the roof. And fairly inexpensive.

FWIW... I posed the same question to CR Customer service a month ago regarding what roof sealant they use on the Tan roofs of the ST and the answer was "Dicor self-leveling". Unless Dicor's "Ivory" is more of a tan I haven't been able to find anything on Dicor's site that indicates they produce a tan or beige. Anyone have experience with the Ivory Dicor product?</span>
</span>After reading the last few posts of this topic, has anyone been able to find a vendor that stocks the Alpha Systems 1015 Self Leveling Sealant. (Color Beige)? All I have been able to find is their White sealant. The pages linked in this topic appear to be out of stock or not carried anymore.</span>

Brent,

I would not necessarily want to use the same sealant as Crossroads. The one they used around the skylight did not do a very good job. It did not stick well to the plastic.
