I have a Sun Lite Eagle 1982. I would like to get on the roof and do some repairs. Is there a weight limit on these roofs. I weigh 265lbs and do not want to crash through. Would the roof hold my weight?

put a piece of plywood on the roof to spread out the weight.

Do you really need to be on the roof? Will a good ladder get you to “half” the roof on each side?

I'm only 175 and sounds like stepping on Doritos on several trailers we've owned.....don't trust " walkable roofs ".
