I walk upright on mine every time I take the cover off or put it on (before and after a trip). Been doing it for 3 years now without any problems.

Hi does your roof feel spongy between the trusses ? Also have the trusses made lines in your rubber roof material ?

On my trailer there are lines going across the width of the roof showing where the trusses are and between the trusses it feels spongy. I do not like that at all makes me feel like in a few years there will be trouble.

2013 was the first year for the truss roof. You can tell the truss roof as it has an arch to it where the regular roofs are flat. You can see where the truss' are and just take your steps close to them. I am 6'2" and 190 lbs, no weight issues.

FWIW my 2012 JayFlight has a truss roof. Not sure about the "Magnam Truss" in the video. There is no question my roof is "arched" and the 2012 JayFlight Brochure showss pictures and says the following about roof construction....

- 3/8" plywood decking on 4 ˝"
arched wood trusses: Moisture
resistant, plywood holds up to rain

- Fiberglass insulation (R-7):
With optional thermal package,
increases R-value to 22

- Seamless rubber roof: Features
one-piece construction, ensuring
better leak protection

I'm 6'1" 260 and although I try not to get on the roof, I did have to crawl up there to install my MaxAir vent and it felt stable.

The change wasn't to a truss but to a thicker truss with truss plates and knee wall plates at the edges. Mine is rock solid.

I'm 6 and 250. I just wouldn't feel good about all that weight up there. DW is 5-5 and 104. She goes up the ladder and takes a look-see for debris now and then. I had a man we hire for fencing, etc., put on the Maxxairs.

2014 WH 30DSRE magnum roof feels solid as advertised except for the 2 or 3 feet toward the front where the arch levels out as it meets the front cap. That flat section [still roof not cap] feels real spongy and I didn't feel comfortable walking on it. OK if I stayed on the arched areas. Anybody familiar with how the transition section of the roof is supported?
