Cool Rear ladder mounting locations 2012 WLDWD 24TBSS

I want to install a factory ladder for my 2012 Wildwood 24TBSS. All 2012 Wildwood's are built with the mounting blocking in place even if the trailer was not ordered with a ladder. The dealer had the trailer I wanted in stock but it did not have a roof ladder. They ordered me a factory ladder but they do not install them. Does anyone have a phone number of the "right" forest river factory so I can get the mounting hole location instructions?? I heard my trailer was built in southern California and there are a lot of factory locations and phone numbers. Does anyone have a 2012 24TBSS with a factory ladder that could tell me the mounting hole locations??

Is it possible for you to find another trailer like yours with a ladder and measure it? Otherwise, you will have to wait for someone on the forum to post that info. Sorry.

Thanks for the idea! I have been trying to find one on a RV lot for sale so I can just go measure the ladder location etc., so far have only found them without ladders.

I Googled it and looked at approx. 20 and none had the ladder. Thought maybe if I found one you could email or call the dealer and ask if he would measure one. You might try that.

I have a T26BHXL and they didn't put the blocking in for the ladder when I talked to the manufacturer he said its hit and miss whether the blocking is in there on the wildwoods it has to be ordered with the blocking and/or ladder sometimes that gets missed on the order.

I bought a collapsible ladder off flea bay and that seems to work better and be more versatile than a fixed ladder and cheaper to

I think this is the one I bought

I contacted FR about the same issue and was told that if the trailer didn't have a ladder when it left the factory, then no blocks were installed for installing one. The dealer tpld me just the opposite? Who do you believe? Just becareful... I contacted the FR factory in Dallas Oregon by email. That is where my Wildwood tt was built...

I wouldnt trust that there's mounting blocks in place.
Id suggest moving on to an alternate option.
