Unless the factory installed backers, during production, you can't install one.
You should post the trailer model number, not the length, so owners of your model can help.

I would contact the factory.

I think for these ultra-light campers, you are better off to bring a ladder if you need one.

We just purchased a 2019 Salem Hemisphere 26RL and prior to the purchase I contacted Salem's customer service and asked the following questions:

1.Does the roof have aluminum or wood trusses? Answer: Wood
2.Is the roof capable of having a ladder attached (is the rear backing in the wall? Answer: No
3 Is the roof a walk on roof? Answer: No

The customer service rep Tara got back to me within 24 hours.

Make sure with the Manufacturer before you do anything.
