Weight on Roof?

I need to know if it is safe to put full body weight on the roof. I have someone coming to seal the roof of my OLD Sunline and I know he will ask to get on top of it. Thanks in advance for your advice.

You will need to put plywood on the roof where he intends to walk/crawl. There's a wood truss system but no supporting wood - only the rubber roof and thin luan. Make sure the plywood is large enough to span the roof trusses and that he doesn't step right on the edge of it.

Hi Vienna700

Ditto to what Pam said.
Also make sure the plywood used does not rip the rubber roof when you move it around.

I use plywood with carpet on the button to protect the rubber roof. I also use 2 pieces of plywood to help in moving around the roof.

Not sure what the truss separation is, I think it might be 16 or 24 OC.
Someone else here on the forum I'm sure can let you know what the specific truss separation is.

Good Luck
Hutch

My trailer does not have a rubber roof..........I don't think they made them in 1980!

Your trailer does, however, have an aluminum roof. The aluminum roof is also designed not to support the weight of a person, so you still need to put plywood up there. You don't have to worry about putting anything under it to protect from ripping, though.

Is your trailer a 1980 model year? What model is it?

I have forgotten the model # and would have to go out the the camper to check. It is 21 feet, has pull down bunks front and back. It did have a coucho, swivel chair and vanity in the back but we conderted it to twin beds. I just love my vintage unit!

From your description, it sounds like a 21'RB with the optional chair. For 1980, the standard 21'RB had twin lounges, and then there was the option for replacing one with a chair, or replacing one with double bunks.
