Customer service told me: 8 foot step ladder from the awning side. Stay on the white top. It has lots of support, but stay near the rivet/seams as much as you can.

If you just want to look, park it next to your garage, and get up on the garage roof to check out the Airstream's roof. Thanks to wonderful inventions like binoculars, you can see things pretty well even if you need a close look.

Then, if you see anything that looks wrong, you can worry about a way to get on top of the Airstream.

Pharm, meant to say, I've been up there several times. Dealer has also, as both of my original Dometic A/Cs went out almost brand new and had to be replaced. No damage. Metal moves but pops right back. As you will see, it's not very pretty up there anyway.

Years ago, I used a foam padded ladder along the rivets but since bought 2 Werner aluminum ladders with one werner aluminum work plank. I now use the combo (for safety reason) whenever I want to inspect the roof for potential leak after winter or wash down the rig. Wait for sales on those ladders or check junk/scrap yard for used ones.

I always avoid climbing through the back or front of the AS, skin has less rib support especially by the marker lights. They dent easily, especially the "curve".

I went to HD and had some 3/4" 2x4 panels cut to use as roof supports for me to lay between rivet points. On my model the top of the door frame serves as the ladder area access point. I found a rivet missing up there on my first venture.

Pizza? In an Airstream?
Now that isn't very campy/camperish!
