Does anyone know if the roof of a 17' 1980 Bigfoot Trailer can bear a significant weight.
I have a 2006 21rb Bigfoot trailer. Most likely made different than your 1980 17 Bigfoot and Im not sure which one would have a stronger roof.
I get up on my roof each time I wax my trailer. I was up there to install my two Max Air vents and I spent some time up there getting my solar
panels installed. The roof on my trailer felt very secure and I had no problems. I do try to distribute my weight (200 lbs) and stay close to the edge.
I also go barefoot to help avoid scratching the gel coat. I would avoid walking around up there with socks and no shoes. After a good waxing, you could easily slide off.
