Sure, the first chance I get I'll post some pics.
I believe your model is similar to mine. I have a handrail at the foot of the steps on the left as you are going up. The one I purchased from Amazon is very similar. It is made of teak and is more of a marine item.

Yes out rigs are similiar and we definitely need another railing especially with the short steps. I couldn't find andbeams in the bathroom door side wall. It almost sounds hollow with no reinforcement.
Is this the one you found on Amazon?
What size did you use? single 13", double 23" or triple 33"
Did you mount vertical, horizontal or diagnal up the stairs?

Thanks

Thats it. The 12" single, I think it was listed as a 13", is the one I used. I mounted it vertically.
I couldn't find any studs either. I mounted it on the door framing, on the left side of the door opening. It's a little tight but works for us.

Thanks for the picture. The issueis if we have the same interior wall structure to mount it. I will check with a metal stud finder if we have the aluminum studs at those locations.
Can you please get a length of the rail so it may help find the studs.
Thanks

Glad to. The rail is 36" long. The bottom is 2" from the edge of the metal door frame, there is a center brace right at 16" from the metal frame, and the top is mounted directly in line with the edge of the floor or top step, and the right side of the window that's up there, or right where a major stud would be. I doubt very seriosly that they would modify the main structure from one year to the next, just to add a few small upgrades. Mine also has the slam latch doors on all the outside doors, does your's?

If you need any more pictures, glad to help.

Looks very similar to the grabrail my DH made from scratch (cherry) and installed on the inside of our screen door to pull the door shut. Works like a charm! How much did you pay for this, if I may ask?

Can you tell how the ends are attached tothe wall? It looks like they may have drilled the 2" pieces into the wall then added the long rail.
Also would like to see the metal mid support.
The rail looks like 1"x1" square


Thank you very much as I think many will do this mod.
