Up grade to my Silverback 33IK #3

There were no hand rails going up to the bedroom in my 2015 Silverback 33IK and my wife was having a hard time going up with her bad knees. I looked around the internet but could not find anything I liked. So I made my own. There are aluminum studs in the wall so I had some good attachment points. I don't know why CC does not include these rails.

DDC You would have to ask............
The bottom one I made and installed, then I found that it was set too low at 29". So............. to keep from leaving holes in the wall and I had the material to make a second one ---- back to the shop. The top one is set at 35". 34" to 38" is hand rail code. I should have looked up the code before installing the first one. What do you think, does it look OK????

I was wondering why two also....

I think I would have made some type of wooden plate/cover to cover the first set of holes and use to install second version at necessary height
