FYI - I contacted the seller about the ladder. He said (and I quote):
"Good luck. I made it myself."

PS - Thinking about it, I suspect that making such a ladder wouldn't be too hard. If you started with a ladder designed for a different Solera floorplan you could just cut down the length of the treads, drill new holes for the supports, and mount it where he mounted it. Nah, maybe I'll just take one of those telescoping ladders!

I agree with BC use a healthy dose of common sense. It would seem to me that placing a sheet of plywood (to distribute weight???) would be a safety hazard...plywood thick enough to distribute weight on a convex fiberglass roof increases the probability of falling off...IMO. I've been up on my roof many times inspecting and trying to place the RV cover (not needed anymore...new carport) without problems but then again we have a 2013 S.

I get on my 24R roof quite often to was and wax. That is a strong roof.
