Palomini 180FB ladder install?

I noticed this trailer touts a walkable roof and was wondering about a ladder install?

The basis of my idea is I am looking for a good way to mount two bikes.

Front hitch...I don't like it.
Tounge mount...can't get topper open with bikes mounted.
Bumper mount...not strong enough.
Roof rack....big dollars...

If it didn't come with a ladder there's a good chance you can't install one after the fact.
It depends on if the blocking was installed at the factory or not.

Based on the roof drawings I have for my 142CK I would say there is no place to fasten the ladder to the roof. Palomino uses galvanized backers for anything that needs to be attached to the ceiling or roof and I don't see any structure in your floor plan that would support that. Your best bet is call Palomino to ask them. They readily sent me the roof drawings so I could see where the mounting points were for the TV antenna I wanted to install.

Just cause it says that it has a walkable roof, doesn't necessarily mean you can mount a ladder.
