How will you drop the rear bunk door if you've got a ladder blocking it?:what::what::what:
A little curious about that too. I have seen a side mount latter. Maybe that's what the OP is wanting. I carry a 12 foot collapsing ladder in the bed of my truck. Very small closed, light weight and has a 330 lb. load rating.

The OP's Roo has a rear wardrobe slide on the curbside and a 12' slide on the driver's side.
Doesn't leave many places left.
Plus none of those areas have blocking for mounting a ladder.

The only trailer I've seen with a side mounted ladder, was a no slide toyhauler.

I have not gotten on my roof yet, but the dealer noted that one can walk on the roof of a Roo all day long and have no issues. Has anyone else heard this statement or have concerns after walking on the roof of their Roo?

Yes 1Roo4Ladds, I asked about getting up on the roof, was told that there is no issue with walking around up there. Now whether I have the guts to do it is another matter.....

Re: Post #12: If the Roo has a solid back wall and IF this wall has the ladder mounting studs then a ladder could be mounted on the back wall. Re: Post's #6 and #13: When I bought my unit back in January of '15 I was told that ALL of Forest River's units have roofs that one could walk on. Yes, I do understand that I was talking to a salesperson, but that is what he told me.

Roos don't have solid back walls. They are hybrids, or expandables, with drop down bed ends.

I had a Shamrock 23ss and walked on my roof with no issues. Of my four trailers it seemed the strongest of them all. Shamrocks and roos are almost identical. I am NOT a light weight guy either.

Not the back. Wondering if there is a side application.

NO
A trailer has to have an optional ladder for the factory to install backing during assembly.

This is NO such option for any hybrid, therefore no such backing.

MuddauberE [Post #3] - thanks for the intel on the collapsible ladder. That thing rocks! I think we're going to go this route. http://www.ladder-guy.com/ladders/5-...-sided-ladder/
