BOUNDER CLASS A Roof Weight Capacity

Unread postby CdnBounder on Thu Oct 13, 2011 11:48 pm

I recently bought this unit and want to do some winter maintenance on the roof . Is there a weight restriction I should be aware of before I get up there ...or am I free to walk about on the roof ..it's a 1998 34' in fairly decent shape . I was planning to use two 4' x 2' pieces of plywood to walk on , so as to disperse the weight factor over a larger area.
Any comments would be appreciated !

Walking on my roof is not one of the things I do a lot but I can see no problem once in a while I go up on the roof to clean up to treat it and the check things out. Maybe a couple times a year it would not make it a habit

If you use plywood and your roof is rubber, make sure you put something under the plywood so you don't puncture the rubber.

Yes I decided to go for it ..The roof seems to be structurally sound ..I took the opportunity to reseal as much as I could and feel confident that I put enough mud on it ..that it should be good for the winter. It was in dire need of some cualking in a few places. I peeled off the complete left side and recalked the joint.. roof to wall . Put on the AC Covers and blew out the lines .. tomorrow I am pulling all the batteries and taking them indoors for the winter. I'll dump some more anti freze in the tanks for good measure ..and then I think I'm done.. I think I'll wait until spring to wash and condition the rubber roof, it doesn't look all that bad .The clear skies are causing the temp to drop rapidly , they say we're in for a cold winter .
Thanks for the comments ...
