Replacement Bunk Ladder

Has anyone ever looked into replacing the bunk ladder in their RV? While the one we have is light and does the job OK, it is narrow, steps are not wide enough and worst of all, the hooks they use at the top can put a good gash in you if your not careful coming down. Just looking for some ideas.......

I guess finding a replacement bunk ladder is not at the top of anyone else's priority list but since we seem to be using it a lot this year I decided to find a better option. Additionally, I have been thinking about getting some sort of ladder/step stool to help reach various points on the outside of the RV since I'm a very tall 5'7"

Turns out the solution to finding a better bunk ladder was not to replace it with a bunk ladder at all. Operating an RV tends to revolve around maximizing efficiencies. I.e You buy one thing that serves multiple purposes. With that in mind I found a Werner 3 Step folding stool that works really well as a bunk ladder and is also tall enough to reach many of the places on an RV that I could not otherwise. It also stores nicely behind the driver side seat for easy access although I still need to figure out how to secure it.
