Class C bunk ladders violate Govt. safety regs.

ANSI A 14.2 and OSHA, Please see pic for label required attached to all commercially sold ladders.
Our 2015 Greyhawk bunk ladder has 16" spaces berween each step,, govt. regs specify for safety, each step will have 12 inches between each step.
This ladder we have is difficult to use and should be recalled-replaced by Jayco, in my opinion.
Lets start a thread to get something done by Jayco if you agree.

I agree! My '16 Seneca has the same ladder in which I almost broke my leg the first time I used it!

They'll just go back to the old standard....... "no ladder provided", it was that way for many many years.

I actually think your comparing apples and oranges with regards to step spacing standards. RV roof ladders have been 14" for years.

As to what I said neither our 01 class "c" Designer or the 08 SENECA came with bunk ladders.

The RV industry does not follow any codes, maybe some RIVA codes but they are a joke. When I was a general contractor we had a national construction code book that was updated every few years and everything was followed to the last word or you didn't pass inspection. Nothing in a RV is even close to meeting code of new homes, all steps are 8-1/4" rise max, check your inside/outside steps, egress windows in sleeping areas not even close, electrical what a mess. I know an RV is not a house but I am amazed what they get away with. So its a moot point even thinking Jayco cares about a ladder

I want to work in the Government Department that is responsible for RV compliance issues! Gotta be a sweet job with lots of money and benefits, no accountability and you get to look at RV's and related matters all day. Sign me up!
I actually cannot believe we need the Government to solve these kinds of issues.

Got some BAD NEWS for ya...

Ain't no such gubbermint job. The industry created the RVIA years ago and the feds said "OK" and left it alone.

The same path that turned The Hayes Code (U.S. federally sponsored) into the MPAA ratings system.

Where's the balance point between a self-policing industry and the nanny-state?
