    I own a diesel Rexhall Aerbus 36 feet long. I have it in stored outside with a motorhome cover over it. MY question

    with the steel frame construction, how much of a snow load can the frame stand???

    Your thoughts would be appreciated.

    Snow load capability of Aerbus

    Hi Tom,
    I don't think that snowload should be a problem. I have had my 1990 Airex since June last year, and I have been on top of it two or three times sweeping off cedar needles. I weigh 200 plus pounds and walk around up there just fine. There is little or no deflection of the roof. That means that the point load is pretty high where I step.
    If you think there is too much total weight on the vehicle I suspect that you could just sweep it off as it accumulates. If you do, be careful cause a plastic cover is really slippery when it's covered with snow.
    You must live in a harsh climate? Smile.

    regards, Gary
