roof weight limits

New to the Airstream community. Will the roof support my 175 lbs. without damage? Anybody have any input?

Wear tennis shoes, also you can put nonskid like you put in kitchen drawers then lay a piece of plywood over and scamper up carefully.

This is ok if you have good trailer. Also you must span two rib lines.

I weigh 240 and have been all over my roof. Just watch where you step.

I wish I weighed 240 and I've been up on mine many times during the rebuild.

do! NOT step or lean on the front or rear ends of the trailer! they are not supported and will dent severely.

Years ago, Airstream in Ohio placed 30 men (thirty) on top of a 30 foot trailer, to demonstrate that weight will not hurt it.

However, that does not mean you can do a "poka" on it, just be reasonable.

DO NOT set your feet past the awning rail.

If you do, you are guaranteed segment damage.

It helps to put something like a shelf board up there to distribute the load between the ribs.
