i have this thing about climbing high from time to time....
, to forever erase the myth of "don't get on the roof," Airstream had 30 employees, all at the same time, stand on the roof.
The resultant damage? ZERO.
Obviously, when your on the roof you don't do the polka.
Where rubber soled shoes or sneakers, and you will be fine.
However, if the roof is wet or damp. stay on the ground.
Also remember that you MUST NEVER
go forward or rearward of the awning rail. If you do, you will damage some segments, guaranteed.
Additionally, the roofs on newer models, if anything, are stronger than the 1968
models. Every dealer, as well as the factory employees, all walk on the roof's. Always have, always will.
