200 lbs. shouldn't be a problem, as long as you're careful and watch your step, staying away front the edges, vents, etc. Some recommend that you use a piece of plywood to distribute the weight.

Myself, I'm not a fan of walking on any roofs, including my home...

Walk flat footed - Yes, do the Jumping Jacks or a Goose Stepping march - No. Try not to step right next to the skylights or vents and you should be fine. Keep in mind that the Winnebago roof is arched and can be slippery when wet.

B / L ...

We toured the Winebago factory in 1999 (while they were still using roof air conditioners) ...

Two big guys made two trips carrying the roof air conditioners across the roof and setting them over the precut holes ...

Your roof is plenty strong to walk on ...

I wouldn't jump or dance on the roof but it will hold you up fine. It's slippery when wet for sure so be careful if washing the roof or up there after a rain shower.

I weigh 220 pounds and go up there all the time. Just don't put all your weight on one foot and jump up and down on that foot. I stay away from the sides of the vents, etc. I also feel with my feet when up there and walking around and if a spot seems to be soft when I am starting to step on it, I move to a different spot. You will eventually begin to know where the bracing is under the roof. I am up there several times a year -- to clean it and wax it and any other preventive maintance that needs to be done up there.

Just go easy and be aware of slickness when it is wet up there -- also, don't go near the edges -- stay in the middle if possible or the middle 1/2; ie, 1/4 on each side.
