Default Roadtrek Roof

Can anyone tell me what the roof on my 2004 Roadtrek 190 Popular is made of? Is it metal or fiberglass or something else? Can it be walked on?

RT190 is a van conversion
with a fibreglass roof.

Like BBQ said, it is fiberglass and will not tolerate heavyweight. If your concerned about working on you fan, lites, cleaning & waxing - you can do it using a six foot stepladder; do one side then the other. Ron

If you MUST get on the roof to do something, I have been successful with using 2 pieces of 3/8" plywood with some low pile carpeting glued to them. They are about 2' x 2' square, Kneeling on them is fine and the weight is distributed. you leap-frog them to go from one place to another on the roof. But if at all possible do it from a ladder to be safe. Use your better judgement. you will know if these are not sufficient. You will feel the roof "give" slightly as you SLOWLY put weight on them. When using a step ladder, I place a foam pad between the ladder and the van, leaning the ladder against the foam pad.

If you have access to some scaffolding, you could set it up on both sides and have easy roof access from a few inches above it.

You could clean/paint the roof this way, replace seal/caulk on fans and AC units or whatever you need. And it's stable.
