Same issue here - Jayco 'dropped the ball' when they thought out access to the top bunks on the 23k! My 10yo sleeps up top and will eventually damage the walls/bunk the way she scrambles up there! I've been scratching my head on trying to figure out making access easier for the kids....I like your ladder, though..cheap & easy!
My original thought, in order not to restrict access to the lower bunk & cupboards, was to build a very narrow ladder along the side wall beside the bathroom door - the only thing I haven't come up with is a way to protect the wall itself from foot-scuffs....
Nice to see I'm not the only 23k owner! What to you tow with? We just pulled 5,000km from Ottawa to Victoria, across the prairies and over the rockies. Overall our Envoy did well....
3 kids and Buddy the Dog;)
