Shasta Phoenix 5th Wheel rear ladder

New to FR forums but liking the information available here. Just took delivery of a '15 Phoenix 28BH after upgrading from a Nomad Joey bumper pull. We've only used it once for the initial shakedown but loving it so far with no issues to report, yet.

It didn't come with a rear ladder but the MSRP says it has reinforced walk-on roof. Does that mean it is pre-configured to have a ladder installed and should I order it from the dealer and have them install it? Anyone added a ladder themselves?

Thanks,
Boone

Chances are you cannot add the ladder after the fact.
Normally they only put the the blocking in if it's going to get a ladder @ the factory.
Maybe your dealer can check to see if such blocking exists in your unit but it's unlikely.

I purchased a 2015 Phoenix and was told the same from my Dealer as Turbs stated. You must order from the factory while it is being built. Also Forest River does not recommend rear ladders. The roof is solid and I purchased an extension ladder from Camping World (the one that folds and telescopes) and would not consider a rear ladder again

Ok, thanks for the replies.. I'll look into a collapsible ladder if I decide to get up on the roof. Not sure if I will or not..
