How much weight can be on a Jayco roof

Hi I have a 2015 Jayflight 32 BHDS , I tried searching but didn't see anything , I would like to wash and seal my roof , I bought it new and horrible me haven't done it yet , but mainly cause i'm afraid I will damage it , I go about 350 pounds , I see they say about the roofs holding 4500 pounds but idk about that , do you guys and gals think I would be good to get up there and do a good cleaning and seal without damaging it with my "tonnage" Thanks everyone

I'm around 210 and have done damage yet. I read somewhere that someone places some planks or such on the roof to stand on to spread the weight/pressure out a bit more. Some thin plywood or boards may work for you.

I have the truss roof on our EAGLE 284BHS and here is what JAYCO has to say (show) about it.

I feel like I am able to help you well here. I have a 2018 32BHDS and I am about 340. I have been onto my roof, I crawled on my hands and knees to spread the weight. There was a little deflection between the spars and I tried to stick to them as much as possible. You will be fine, however the rear ladder is most likely not rated for your weight, it is up to you if you want to use it. I have a very heavy multi use 375 rated ladder I use and no attached ladder.

You will notice some movement from the trailer when you are up there. When I was cleaning and sealing my roof I put the stabilzer jacks down to help with that. When I got up there a week later to put a little dicor on a spot I had found where I wanted it, I just got up there and did it, the trailer moved a little more.

Thank you

Thanks all for the reply , I had seen that video about the trusses but , i guess paranoid , I don't trust "salesmen" , you all have eased my worries of getting up there and sinking in the roof

The roof is far more sturdy than the beds. You'll be fine.

At this point, the roof on my 2011 x23b is more solid than my floor.
