Howdy from west Texas

I just joined and I am waiting to pick up my new Wildcat later today. Traded in my travel trailer for a fifth wheel. I do have one question. Does anyone have any advice on how to install grab bars or assist bars on the stairs to the bedroom. My wife is in need of the assistance to get into the bedroom. Any advice on the type of wall mounts would be appreciated. I look forward to hearing from other FR owners.

I cannot help either, maybe the Wildcat Rep on this forum can suggest what wall anchors or toggle bolts to use and where. When we travel more often and more frequent, my wife & I plan on buying a fifth wheel. Steep stairs to the bedroom are our greatest concerns when spending that amount of money. Besides layout of the trailer, this could be the deal breaker for our upgrade on many models.

Welcome to the forum and happy camping. Can not help with the hand rails, but your dealer may have some suggestions. Did you purchase from Hanner RV?

Welcome aboard! You might look into suction grab bars on the internet, or there are some other types that screw in avail. at Lowe's or Home Depot. Good luck and hope you enjoy your new 5th wheel.
