Thanks, anyway.

There is a ladder on the back of the lite, my 215 pounds was not happy on it so I got this.

Shop Werner 17-ft Aluminum 300-lb Telescoping Type IA Multi-Position Ladder at Lowes.com=

The Lowes job is bigger than I want to carry. The 5' serves my purpose of reaching the sides. I want the roof ladder solely for rooftop access, which is why I asked about the add-on. Is there such a thing as a side-mounted roof ladder? If so, where is it attached?

There might be but I would not like it.
It would make you wider on one side by 4-6 inches and that would hinder your sight line on that side, in traffic that is a liability I do not wish for anyone.

Good luck in your search.

Yea, I bet a factory rear ladder would be a pita to move to front and sides...

Yeah, probably true. I guess hybrids and ladders simply aren't compatible.

Ladder..... NO.... (I have a ladder built on my unit from the factory and it is junk and bent)

Party on Roof..... No... . (You may think that you are not causing harm, but over time you will)

I've seen ladders on sides of toy haulers. I think they are low profile, and wouldn't stick out much further than the awning arms?

THIS!^^^^

can't mount to the back nor can you attach the top to anything, since it's bended plastic on the ends of the roof.

the only way is for a side ladder and even then you'd have to find studs and i'm sure you won't find two near each other on the sides.

in 10 years of being a member of 5 different hybrid forums, i've NEVER seen anyone come up with a successful way to add a ladder to a hybrid TT. it ain't built like conventional TTs.

i also wouldn't want a lot of people on the roof unless they were all on the edge of it.
