36QBOK owners! I need a measurement...

Since sadly my 36QBOK lives over in storage, I'd have to pull it home and open slides to get into the bunkhouse - I'm hoping one of you fine folks could help a brutha out.

On the passenger side, my daughter generally sleeps above the outdoor kitchen on that bunk. My MIL has taken to sleeping below her on the bunk that folds down. The problem is, my darling/dang/dear/dastardly daughter is a bit heavy footed as she plops down onto my MIL.

I'd like to get or make a L-O-N-G bunk ladder that goes from the floor past the lower bunk to the edge of the upper bunk. Problem is, I don't entirely know if it's realistic to pull off (with the bottom bunk being a fair distance out from the upper bunk).

Could any of you fine upstanding citizens take a quick gander/measurement for me?

Mine is in storage now also. However, it is close to where I work and I think I will be able to put both rear slides out. If I get the chance I will do so and get some #'s.

I also have a question you may be able to help me with if you have a central vac. The cannister/bag access in my unit is behind a pannel in the basement, not flush with the rear basement wall as I have seen in other fivers. Is this the same for you or is it flush with the basement wall.

Alas ye matey - the super special central vac wasn't an option when I ordered mine. I hope to install one later this year.

Visited my QBOK in storage and was unable to put the slides out enough to get measurements in the bunkhouse for a ladder. However, I will be pulling her out this weekend for a trip to the dealer and transport back to the factory for a repair. I will get measurements then..

The description of the "repair" to be done at the factory is included in the thread "Any Sabre 36QBOK's out there?" post #'s 189 and 180 at the link:

Any Sabre 36QBOK's out there? - Page 23 - Forest River Forums

I hope to take it back to the dealer this coming weekend. The contact at the factory will arrange to have it transported and repairs should take a couple of days. I figure if it all takes a couple weeks between driving back and forth to the dealer (3hrs each way) and repair time, I still should have plenty of time prior to "full bore" camping season.

FYI

If you keep a RV tire trip log as I do, don't forget to include all these factory tow episodes as miles are miles!

Thanks for the suggestion...that thought crossed my mind also...even though my tires usually need replacing based on an age perspective vs. mileage. Most of my trips are 1/2-3 hrs from home with a couple longer trips per year.

For your $'s worth here it is! From the top bunk rail on the OK side to the floor, clearing the lower bunk when extended with mattress, is....72"...Not sure it would work as the angle of the ladder will be relatively flat and extends to the middle of the floor at the same level as the floor vent.
