I have read in the past that, if one is not present, the support structure to support one was not installed. I also understand that if one is installed that support structure on the roof was installed to hold some weight. FR at 1-574-206-7603, this number is for April Conner, Customer Service.

My 2013, 2604 had a ladder put on last year. FR has a great roof set up so you can safely walk on it if your carefull . Just be sure your dealer orders it from FR to be sure it matches your roof and wall for proper support and have them install it. I love the ladder!

My Georgetown 352XL, has a ladder. I wouldn't consider leaving before checking the roof and slide topper's for potential flying objects at 60 mph. Sticks and pine cones will pine tar stick to the toppers and get stuck in the canvas.

When I toured the Flagstaff plant, I asked how they knew which units got ladders and which ones did not. I was told that ALL Flagstaff units left the plant with blocking for either right or left mount. Not possible to add it behind the end cap from the outside! Bet a check with the plant to see if this is true with your model. I checked wth my dealer later and was told he does not order factory mounted ladders was to prevent people from Climbing units on sales lot. Go figure.

My MH came with a ladder but I still bought one of those. Works better and is safer to use as well.

I have a factory mounted ladder but purchased one of these at harbor freight. Is much safer to use and can put it just about anywhere. 17 Ft. Type 1A Multi-Task Ladder

Typically you can find this ladder on sale or get a 20% off coupon to use on it.

I have the same 17 Ft Type 1a Multi Task Ladder which I keep in my 5er's basement. Folds up to 4 feet and can be used for so many things including getting up on the roof. My Factory ladder was the victim of a bone headed move on my part. Insurance paid for a new one, but I bought the multi tasker and made some mods with the extra money.
