Trilogy 3650 RE Ladder

Need to know if there is a way to install a hard mounted ladder on my Trilogy of just get some other kind to enable me to get on roof if needed.

Ladders require backing of some kind behind the fiberglass/roof material in which to screw/bolt the ladder.

Since yours did not come with a ladder, I would suspect that it does not have that backing built into the sidewall or roof and you would have to accommodate that missing material somehow. I, personally, wouldn't try to add that material as I would get it wrong. You're probably better.

I use a collapsible ladder. Recesses into itself, takes up little room and doesn't poke holes in my rig.

I've used one for many years.

My Hemi 282 didn' t come with an installed ladder, but the blocking was installed as SOP because the initial assemblers did not know if there was going to be one or not.

ua40j,

Thanks Jim for your response. I am not familiar with a collapsible ladder. Can you point me to a web link or manufacturer so I can check one out?

Bob

We have the same unit and I use a collapsible ladder also. Here is a link to the one we use.

Another note, we carry it in the front generator prep area since we don't have a generator. We typically won't boondocks so the added storage area is nice.

The one we use is similar to the one Bill and Pam use. Amazon has several. This is one, although it is not the one I use. And if you do order one of these, make sure it's high enough AND has the correct weight rating.

I'm not a small fellow, so mine is rated at 250lbs.

Since I have a 2014 Trilogy 3650RE which is 13' 2" I may need a ladder that is more than 12.5'. I would like to get one that will enable me to get on the roof if necessary. Thanks for all the help to you Jim and to Bill & Pam.

I have the 785P model which is better than 15 feet tall, so no problem getting to the roof of the Trilogy if needed. If you decide on this route be sure to get the silicone rung cover it helps to prevent damage to the gel coat.

Trilogy actually did have 2 piece ladder that was installed in the center of the back wall. Do not know if you could find out who manufactured it or find one. I use a little giant ladder that I carry in the bed of my truck.
