A ladder can be leaned against the drip cap of any side window, at least from 1969 on up.
Airstream mechanics and dealer mechanics walk on the Airstream roofs all the time, without any problems. Just don't decide to do a jig on it.
CAUTION: DO NOT walk on the end caps, or segments, "EVER." They will very easily cave in if you do.
Many years ago, the factory in Ohio, had 30 mechanics, all at the same time, stand on top of a 30 foot trailer, "with no damage."
Wearing rubber soled shoes provides some walking stability when on the roof.
