We purchased the 26BH and I built a ladder for the grandkids from 2x2 and 3/4" dowel rod. Stained it to match the bed and attached it. Works for them (9, 8, and 7). Not sure I would use it myself (64).:-)

Use a step stool? Thanks.

I built one with 2x3's and dowels - needs to be stained yet, but here it is...

Ladder Specs

Nice looking ladder, for sure. Did you attach it to the bathroom wall/bulkhead? Approximately how far apart is the spread of the ladder, and what spacing of the rungs???

Oh heck, what would you charge for a copy????

LOL - my wife would kill me if I took on another project - I have so many "honey-do's"...

It is attached to the bunks under the mattresses with metal L brackets. I used a spacer piece of wood on the left side at each bunk to keep it out away from the curved part of the bunk (if that makes sense). If you don't have that, the bunk curve actually goes into the rung area making it hard to use. It doesn't interfere with the bathroom door at all.

The trailer is in storage, so I can't get you the measurements right now. Here is a thread I posted some time ago on it: http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f7...der-36226.html

The left side goes up higher because my daughter is 5 and I thought she would need something to hold on to when coming down - I may cut that the same height later on.

Hope that helps!

Nice ladder. I was also wondering where I would put it, but it looks like it fits well there.

You're gonna hate your tow vehicle. I have a 2016 26BHW tried pulling with my 2012 GMC Sierra 1500, GM lied on towing capacities. Rated at 6500 lbs it was a struggle to break 60mph. It was a 5.3 with a 3.42 gear and a 6speed. Ended up getting a Ford F-250. 6.2 gas with a 3.73 gear pulls like a dream. I'd have to pull on similar to it before you commit to purchasing.

Oddly enough, I have a F250 and it does a good job. Mileage goes down 25% with the tow/haul button, but it will cruise at freeway speeds no problem. I know it's light enough to pull with a full-size SUV, but I bought it because I like the floor plan. I already had the F250.

My 2010 Silverado has a 5.3, 3.42 gear and a 6 speed and pulls our 26BH just fine. I can run 65 without a problem and have taken many trips through the mountains with it...
