I crawl on hands and knees...for one reason I hate heights, the other reason is to help distribute my weight. Most if not all RV Builders state the roofs are "waklable" however.
For me, I remove my shoes (to be in thick sock feet), slide on some low cost soft surface knee pads and crawl away. Always keeping 3 x contact points at the roof surface at the same time. Thus, distributing my body weight across a large surface... This works for me as well...

Also make sure that the thread pattern of your foot wear, does NOT HOLD SMALL Rocks in it's pattern, as you can cut the thin rubber roof meambrain, etc. I go socking/barefooted most of the time.

Use some proper precautions and go ahead. In our business we don't think about the risk in spite of we go ahead with proper precautions. Its all about our market reputation so use some rubber shoes with a cross belt and go through. commercial roofing company
I've been walking on the roof of our Komfort trailer for 10 years with no issues.
After each trip I get up there with my Palmolive soap , a 5 gallon pail of HOT water, my Truck Brush, my garden hose, and I scrub the roof and the awning.
I then replenish the hot water and scrub the trailer sides with the same equipment.
I drain the water and heater and totally disconnect the batteries.
It gets put away clean after every trip.
I've walked on our trailer roof and the manufacture says it can be walked on but I still don't like the feel. So what I do these days is put on some of those foam knee pads that you can buy at Home Depot and crawl around on it wearing them. I have to get down on my hands and knees anyway to do any re-caulking or whatever so why not just stay in that position to begin with. It's easier for an old geezer like me to crawl around than it is to get up and down anyway.
