Walking on the roof

I have a 2000 Sunline 260SR. How can I tell if I can walk on this roof or not? Thanks for any info.

Best way to tell, is if you have a ladder installed at the factory. Most Sunlines built with a ladder, have at least limited walk-on ability. If your coach was built without a ladder, there's a 99.9% chance that you do not have a walk-on roof.

To keep weight down, Sunline used a pressed fiber-type board. It is similar to Masonite, but not as strong. To safely get on the roof, you will need to get some canvas, or maybe even some blankets. Lay them on the roof and put some plywood on top of them. Make sure the plywood crosses several roof trusses.

Here is a picture from JohnB and shows how he used canvas and plywood to clean his rooftop A/C..




If your coach does have a ladder, be careful when you get on the roof. Sunline would usually only produce a full walk-on roof as an option and only if requested. The Sunline fifth wheels (We've had two) had a 4'x4' piece of OSB at the top of the ladder and 4' wide OSB the length of the center of the coach.

Thanks for the info. I kind of figured that since I did not have a ladder installed from the factory that walking on the roof might not be an option. Just was not sure. I really appreciate the pics. This will allow me to work on certain parts that are on the roof by using plywood and tarps when I have to. Again thanks. I love the Sunline Web site.
