New Member - Argosy leaks

1975 Argosy that has a leak in the roof. Inside around the door has mildew,
so I'm thinking the leak is above the door or aft five feet.

Haven't gotten on the roof since I don't know if that's a good idea or not. I'm at the stage in my life where I ask questions before doing.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

You can safely hop on the roof. I like to get on at the curbside. Just try to stay on the rivet lines (this is where the ribs are) when you're walking around. I generally crawl around (it feels a little safer to me!)

Welcome to the forums. I am not sure I like the words "hop". My grandkids might hop, but I would not try that. I know to only step on the ribs where the rivets are, but I also like to put down a piece of plywood to distribute the load while I crawl around on top. I generally go also from the curb side and put the plywood between the Airstream roof and the top of the awning.

OK, "hop" was just a figure of speech. But, I've never used any wood up there, and I've never dented anything up there, and I've spent a lot of time up there!
