consider replacing the screws in the ladder with stainless steal. mine that attach the ladder to the standoff rusted out. i replaced all of them with stainless all thread. u wouldn't have to go to that extreme if u start with stainless.

You can get the 1 piece ladder(more expensive & higher shipping), or the 2 piece ladder which I ordered that had cheaper shipping. Call Forest River parts department for the model # of the 2 piece ladder. Get some screws from your dealer also for installation. Once receiving the ladder & marking your holes, pre-drill your holes so you don't splinter the fiberglass & use silicone to seal your holes. I used Dicor self leveling caulk on top where the ladder contacts the membrane. Good Luck.

John,
thanks for the info. I did get some info via email from the factory, but not the level you seem to have gotten.
No one mentioned a two piece ladder, because the shipping on the one piece is awefull.
I am curious, is it this??>Universal RV Ladder by Christianson Industries

for $138 it would be awesome....

Maybe you can share some names and phone numbers of the contacts as well as the part number via a PM???

BTW, what model TT do you have??

To be perfectly honest, I don't know her exact title. She works in our parts and service center for the Flagstaff / Rockwood Division, and is pretty much my "go to" person.

If the mounting points aren't identical in location as the factory ladder, you wouldn't be lining up with the blocking/backing in the wall.
