Freedom Express Ladder?

Curious if anyone has added a ladder to Freedom Express? I have a 310BHDS and would like to add ladder to make it easier to perform maintenance, clean off slides,etc... Camping World sells one but not sure about install. Any experience?

I have a fold-able ladder I use. It was a bit pricey to have the dealer do it. I was told there are brackets (maybe called something else) preinstalled in the trailer, but I have no schematic to know where they are or how to properly install so I am not going that route.

I have the schematics for a 320 bhds. Was going to have the dealer do it until I got the price. ($770). Im going to do it myself. Ask your dealer or coachman direct for it.

I asked our dealer if one could be added to our Freedom Express Liberty and he told me Coachmen said yes he could. Cost would be 250.00.

I received the wall diagram for our 229TBS and purchased a ladder from Etrailer.com for $166. I also have a callapsable ladder that I carry in the basement.

Steve can send you the wall backing drawing for your unit. He covers Coachmen units. sbrandenberger@forestriverinc.com

Thanks all. I checked with my dealer and it was just over $600. $250 for ladder plus install. I think I'm going to do either the Werner or Little Giant 22ft multi ladder. I can use to access camper roof, slides, etc...plus use at home. Not sure why campers don't come wth ladders standard as its a must that you get onto the roof routinely.

Does that 13 foot get you up onto the roof easy enough?

Yes it does. I think the height of the trailer is 10ft.
