Ladder for E-Pro

I have a 2018 E-Pro 19FBS built before the rear ladder was added. I have asked the parts guy at the dealer where I bought mine if I could add one on mine on two occasions but I haven't got a reply. Does anyone know if there is someone at Flagstaff or Forest River that could help me? I really think the ladder would help with roof maintenance.

I have a Vibe 288rls and asked the same question. I was told that the lighter trailers do not have the framing to support a ladder. Not sure about the E-Pro, but since they are billed as being able to be towed by smaller SUVs I would think they fall into the same category. If the newer versions have ladders it could be because they have added additional supports to carry the load. Hope this helps.

If a ladder was NOT an option for the 2018 19FBS, it probably doesn't have the factory backers, to install one.

I have the same unit as you and use an extension ladder on the side with stabilizers. You could also put a piece of pool noodle on the ladder to keep it from marring the side of the trailer. No issues going up or down and I extend the ladder about 4 ft over the top.
