Just my opinion but I think the paint scheme is great. Ed really had to paint it since this coach was originally owned by CAT and the back of was covered with CAT stuff.

I don't think it is strange, in 9 years I haven't needed to get on top to fall off, seal a leak,etc. When it was painted I insisted on ladders and picks (no scaffolding available)for roof work.
If I need to I will use the least harmful method as in scaffolding as I don't believe any RV roof should be clambered around on, it is inviting problems

My coach did not have a ladder, I had to add one. I like falling off of my roof. Big Grin

I think a ladder is a good thing to have. You don't have to go on the roof, but if you need to it's there.

Thieves can enter a coach by breaking through roof vents.

Skinny thieves!! I happen to like my ladder just to give me a way to get on the roof for inspections and a place to tie down the gentury setup. The most recent bonus was a way to transport our bicycles.
