Newbee 1st post - Is Roof Walkable

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and just bought my first sunline tt. It is a 2001 LS-26M.
The question I have is whether or not the roof is walkable. I wanted to get up there and inspect and clean it.

Thank you,
Tom

Is it metal or rubber?

Chances are it is not without some additional support. You could get a walkable roof as an option.

For rubber, most people use a 2'x4' piece of plywood on a slightly larger piece of carpet and span at least 3 rafters.

The roof is rubber, I think I will go with your suggestion of using plywood to distribute the weight over a broader area.

Thanks for the advice,
Tom G

Hi Tom,

I'm curious about your Sunline's model number. Sunline did not use that format, when they gave out model numbers. A travel trailer from 2001 would have a number like: T-2653

The model number was typically on a badge and usually located by the entry door. Here is a picture, from one of our Sunlines:



The "SR" designates a slide room model.

As far as your roof goes, JohnB did an excellent writeup about inspecting and sealing the rubber roof. That thread can be found HERE..

Gary, my first thought was that a dealer gave it that ID not knowing what it really was. I checked the 2001 brochure and it is correct for an Advancer. There weren't many Advancers made and probably only a couple members have them.

Tom39, Congratulations on your "new" Sunline and Welcome to SOC!

I stand corrected!

Y'all are slipping!

Most of the Advancers started out as L- models, but then by 2001, most were changed to LS- models. No difference as far as I can tell. The two slide models did indeed have the SR designation too, the LS-26SR and LS-29SR.

Congrats and welcome, Tom!

Thanks guys, the wife and I just picked it up on Tuesday. We are upgrading from our Coleman popup.
The TT is in great shape but is in need of a good bath and some general maintenance. The roof is a bit dirty and the caulking needs to be replaced. Hence the question of getting on the roof. Knowing of the prior owners (friend of a friend of a friend of a friend type thing) I am sure that they have never cleaned the roof. It is not overly dirty but is a bit chalky and has accumulated some visible grime.
Looking thru the forum posts I see that it is recommending the use of non-petroleum based cleaner. So I was thinking of something like a Simple Green cleaner that I can get at the Home Depot or Lowes, or even a automatic dishwasher soap (ADS) diluted in a pump sprayer (I use ADS to clean the vinyl siding on my house. It removes that grime with minimal scrubbing and does not affect the shine and leaves no residue and does a great job). What cleaners have others tried that work well and won’t break the bank account?

Thanks
Tom G.

BTW: This is a GREAT site
