I added a ladder to one of my older trailers - once up there, I found that the roof was not really intended to walk on ( I could hear the plywood crackling underfoot) and wound up laying out a 2x6 whenever I went up there.
My new 5er came with a ladder installed, and the roof is clearly intended to support maintenance foot traffic. ( no crackling)
food for thought - there may not be a ladder for a reason
