My dealer told me that there was noting in the wall to support a ladder so adding one was out of the question so I ended up buying a 12' step ladder.

Yeah I wasn't sure with the new camper now these days. I know my old one I had to reinforce everything to put one up there.but I also read that they are putting blocks on the roof and reinforcing some of them so that you can put a ladder on it yeah I just don't want the dealer to tell me I had to take it to them and pay a bunch of money when I could do it myself because I know it cost me $1,000 to have one put on my old camper

TT'S don't usually have ladders. 5th wheels usually do. I assume that's because of different construction. My new Cottage does not. I have a number of aluminum ladders at home. The lightest and tallest of them will be going camping this season and living there FT. lucky them. Better off than me.

Not sure how many, but most of the new TT's we looked at last year had ladders. They were on my required list to ease roof access. Mine came with one standard.

When ordering my TT the ladder was an option that I'm getting.

Have you looked at telescoping step ladders?
They collapse for storage.

Even though my TT came with a rear ladder, I bought one of these. I use it to hang a 5 ft wind chime in a tree. They come in handy around the house, also.

I bought a 6' one that folds down to 4"x4"x6' from CW (I think)
I can store in in the front compartment of my TT I welded up some brackets and mounted it up out of the way.
It's tall enough to let me check the top of my slide and if need be I can get up on the roof with it.
