Mine is 300 lbs. There is a sticky tab on the ladder. Not sure about yours. Any numbers or id marks?

Mine has a 300lb sticker too, although I climbed it once and I'm 260+\- and I won't climb it again. Felt entirely to much flex.

Me too. But I didn't try to climb it. My solution is a 100# DW!

Unless it's an emergency I will use an extension ladder to get onto the roof. They just look wimpy to me..

I kind of thought they looked wimpy too, so I asked the salesman about it when we were looking at our 28BHBE. He said go ahead, go on up and see. I'm not a little person at 5'10", 260, and that ladder didn't even flex, at least not enough to make me doubt its integrity. As for the long haul, I don't know, I don't take delivery of the unit for two more days, but right now, I don't see any problems with that ladder.
