Question Ladder Inquiry - Outback 21RS

Good afternoon everyone!

I'm new to the community and recently-new RV owner:
2005 Keystone Outback 21RS.

I live on a farm where a good amount of debris (spanish moss, little branches and leaves) tend to accumulate, and then bake on with the hot midday sun.

I found a generic RV ladder on Amazon.com with decent reviews, but wondered if this model is even suitable for the addition, or the roof capable of bearing a 130 lb. person for proper cleaning.

Any suggestions or recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance, I hope everyone has a great day.

Welcome to the forum!!
Generic answer: if there isn't a ladder then the roof is non walkable and adding a ladder isn't probable.

IF the factory built your model with a ladder option but the dealer didn't order it that way, then the framework and bracing would be there. We are now working with 2018 model year so your unit would be considered 13 years old. I'm. It sure how long Keystone would keep records of options on models for that year.

My advise: use a regular ladder, and use 1/2 sheets of 1/4" plywood to spread the load when your on the roof. 130 pounds isn't that heavy but I wouldn't chance it.
