Rear Ladder for Coachmen 2017 Freedom Express 192RBS ?

Does anyone know if a rear ladder can be installed on my Freedom Express by Coachman. It is a 22 1/2' Model 192RBS.
THANKS,
Beachbum

If I was guessing, I'd say probably not. There has to be support there for a ladder. If Coachmen didn't offer a ladder as an option, you're probably out of luck.

Contact this person with your vin# and ask for a blue print for the rear of your model. Also ask if there is a ladder made for your model.

I've talked to Steven several times. He is a good guy, just busy so don't worry if it takes a while for him to get back to you. I've ask for several schematics and he's provided them all.

X2 Steve is very helpful. My Freedom Express has a walkable roof and he sent me the blueprints to show where the supports are if I want to add a ladder. He can let you know, I am leaning towards yes.

We have a 246rks Coachmen Freedom Express, without a ladder. I purchased an aluminum folding ladder on Amazon for access to the roof, and to make sure the slide has no debris on it before retracting. If the unit did not come with the option for a ladder, one probably cannot be safely attached. As others have suggested, contact the manufacturer to be sure.

My 2015 Coachmen Freedom Express 310BHDS came without a ladder and I wanted to add one. I used Forest Rivers website "contact us" asking for the same info you are wanting. FR sent me a nice printout of the back wall of my TT. There are two (2) wooden 2x4's mounted sideways within the back wall for attaching a ladder. Once I had the print, then did the measurements using blue masking tape to identify the studs, the mounting screws for the ladder went right into the studs.
