2012 Rockwood 2701SS prepped for ladder install

I was in communication with FR earlier this year and received the following information in an email:

"...The ladder is an option for your unit and has the wood backer if you ever desire to add one."

Does anyone know which particular ladder I should be using, and how to find where the wood backer is? Or should I ask FR directly?

@ Restcure: Find the Forest River website on the internet, then find the "contact us" tab. Send them an e-mail explaining what you are wanting to do AND send the VIN number from your unit. They will send you a CAD drawing via e-mail which will show where the backers are and the dimensions to measure to find them. Pay close attention to the drawing as the measurements for the back wall are from the inside. This is what I did when I was installing my ladder a few months ago.

Much appreciated!
