Segments are the compound curved sections of metal that are forward of the first main bow and rearward of the last main bow.

If you wish, you could call them as being a part of the front or rear shell.

Got an opportunity to run with your suggestion. Climbed up to remove snow this weekend. Although it is solid enough I wasn't liking the way it felt under the feets... But I'd imagine there would be no problem to work up there. Sort of a mater of logistics positioning yourself safely with a piece of rotating equipment.
Thanks for the info!

I've been up on mine numerous times. I weigh about 190# and the sheets definately deform under my weight, but they spring back into place when I get off. When I polished my roof, I polished each end working toward the middle, then polished the middle as I got back on the ladder. After polishing, I got back up wearing sweats and no shoes to apply a new bead of Parbond to the roof seams. The scuffing was minimal and certainly nothing you could see from the ground.

Oooooooo you resealed with Parbond? Hmmm Din't think of that. Like that idea though! Did you use the clear? or Aluminum? Can't wait for warmer weather! Interior is pretty much ready to go

I hate to admit that at 255lbs, this thread just doesn't comfort me that I can be up there without doing damage to my Baby. I think there is an emotional attachment, as well as a fear of expense at play for me.

...and yes, Mark wrote this, NOT Kimber. She will appreciate that I made that clear.

That's what I'm afraid of, the Airstream feeling like a marshmellow. I'm not so afraid of Kimber, just trying to be sweet with her, kinda like a marshmellow in a smore.
