Going on roof....

I have a small travel trailer that does not have a roof ladder attached to the rear and the roof is made of a hard rubber type material. I bought some eternbond tape to fix a small leak at a seam to the skylight. I know not to try and walk on it but would it be OK for me to slid across on my belly to get to where I need to work? I weigh 200lbs. Thanks for the help and advice!

I throw a padded moving blanket on the roof and a 3x4 piece of plywood and use that as a platform for maintenance.

Just wanted to say thanks to all of the replies. Went up on the roof and resealed everything and had no issues. Did do it in my socks as I didn't want to mark up the roof.
