Question for Josh

We have a 2014 3010 and I need to locate a sturdy mounting point where the folding door attaches to the frame in the rear bedroom. My wife is a stroke survivor and I need to ad an assist bar to aid getting her into the bed. I don't want to poke a hole in the shower. Also can you tell me if there is any horizontal mounting point on the common wall (bedroom/toilet) to mount a small assist bar. Thanks

There should be a vertical stud in the back bedroom by the folding door that you can tap into.


The bathroom will have two vertical studs about 18 inches away from each other.


Will she just be using it to get around or for full weight support?

Thanks Joshua for your quick reply. These assist are more for stabilizing . Are the studs 2x2 wood or aluminum tubing?

If you're going along the sidewall, ceiling, floor, or back wall it will be aluminum. Anywhere else in the coach will be wood.

I have seen short grab bars in hardware stores that are heavy plastic and use large suction cups for anchorage to a shower wall. This might be a better alternative than drilling holes. Just a thought.
