Rear ladder will it hold me???

I don't know if all units have the same ladder, but I also weigh in around 215 and I use mine on my Sunseeker 2860 all the time.

I use some support under the trailer ladder and then I'm good to go on the roof, tried the first time and the wall and the ladder were screaming for help. I weigh '240 dry', lol.

Is there not a weight limit label on the ladder itself?

Mine is labeled 300 lbs max.

I'm referring to the ladder on our Rockwood...I can't believe that the one on your Berkshire would be rated for less.

I am actually looking for someone that has used the ladder on the back of their Berkshire.

I use the ladder on my 2008 Berkshire 390bh frequently. I weigh about 210-215 and the ladder has done fine. It did take me a couple times to trust it since it is not permanently mounted, but it must be built right.
