But if I were to want to achieve it, I suppose I would first need to install some kind of platform that mounts to the roof rack. Probably too much hassle at that point.
As other's have mentioned standing on the sheetmetal of the roof is not a good idea. I did the math on standing on a Sherpa rack in another posting no to long ago.

Best roof rack?

And the Guys from Sherpa replied with the results of their experience a few posts later:

I have 2 x 1/2" plywood panels in my truck for me sleeping platform I just toss one up there and climb up. Only been up there one time but I weigh more than you do and don't have a ladder on the rear hatch.
