Walk on Roof
I currently own a 17' Casita and need something just a bit bigger, so I am considering the Escape 21' and the 5.0TA, and possibly the Big Foot 25'.
I also have been considering the Airstream 25FB Twin. This is the floor plan I much prefer, but cannot find in Fiberglass.
Because of the floor plan, I have been leaning toward the Airstream. That is, right up until I read on the forum that a person cannot walk on the roof. A step on the skin between the ribs results in major denting. This does not seem reasonable to me and my interest in the Airstream has declined considerably.
That brings me back to the FG trailers.
Back when I purchased my Casita I asked the Mfg if l can walk on the roof and they said sure. I gave it no further thought and I did so with no problems whatsoever. I casually mentioned this in a thread on the Casita forum and was told it is very unwise to do so, so I stopped, for the most part. Still and all, it is nice to know that the roof can handle my 240 lbs without any issues.
Can a person of my weight walk on the roof of a 21' or the 5.0TA? For maintenance and waxing primarily. I understand that the center of the trailers can be reached using a ladder, that is not what I am asking. Is the Escape built strong enough to hold my weight?
