Can i walk on roof?

How do you know if you can walk on the roof of your RV? Mine didn't come with a ladder. Its a 2021 259 Crossroads Zinger Lite. I would think it would support the weight, because what does a service center do, if you can't walk on the roof?

As I understand it, on a modern RV, It is generally considered that if you don't have a factory ladder, you should not walk on the roof.
These days the RVs are made with such light materials, that it just isn't advised.
I know my roof is very light, and I have leaned on it and it gave so much that I would never consider walking on it.
I put new Maxxair fans in both the vent openings in mine and did fine with a 1/2 sheet of plywood laid down for support.
I see yours is the 'Lite'.. I'd advise against it.

Agree. If no ladder it’s not advised to walk on it. Use of a 1/2 sheet of plywood is recommended.

With the parts shortage some that would normally have ladders were sent out without them. All are accessible just need to put down something to support/distribute the weight.

I'm going to reseal my roof tomorrow. I also have an ultra lite without a ladder. I took 2x4 sheet of plywood with carpet glued to the bottom to keep from damaging the roof.

Why doesn't the OP ask Keystone instead of getting opinions?

When I wanted to find out about mine, I called the dealership and they told me to go ahead and walk on it. The dealership said that you had to be able to walk on it to make repairs. I called Keystone and after being transferred a couple of times a woman told me absolutely not to walk on it without plywood. I now trust the folks here on the forum more than those people!
