Anybody add a rear ladder to a small Wolf Pup?

Thinking it would be handy to have in place on the 16BHS. Only way to take along a tall enough ladder otherwise would be to buy one of those 4 way folding ladders.
If you did add a mounted ladder, what brand?
No, I am NOT considering adding a luggage rack, it has enough wind resistance as is for me towing

Unless the factory put in backers, you can't put a rear ladder on.

Have you checked with a dealer? Mine was willing to add any supports necessary but I decided I didn't want it taken apart or pay the price.

How about this instead, cheaper, more versatile, stronger.

My Cherokee 304BS doesn't have a ladder. I originally bought a regular step ladder, but it was bulky and took up too much room. I bought one of those heavy duty folding ladders from Home Depot and it's great. It will reach the roof, is fairly lightweight, and when folded, sits on top of the queen bed when we are not camping.

there is a style of ladder that collapses into a 4" square and will fit into the rear bumper, or certainly one of the 5" vinyl post mods, below is a link to one model and there are others, ....

Unfortunately, there are no support braces in the walls to hold a ladder. Its certainly possible to remove the interior (Exterior would seem like more work) back wall in the bathroom or bunk area and add some more supports braces. Its possible, just not sure if its worth the trouble.
