I ordered my White Hawk with a ladder. Factory didn't put it on. They put one inside another trailer sent to my dealer, who installed it. My ladder has 4 pairs of mounts. One on the top, which attaches to the roof. One at the very bottom of the ladder. The other two are adjustable up and down the ladder; one is mounted just above the window and the other just below. The window in the back is quite large and extends partially under the ladder. I think the middle two mount to the top and bottom framing for the window. I would think a ladder would go on your trailer in much the same way.

I noticed that the 2015 HT 29.5bhds has the roof ladder option. It wasn't an option on our 2014. Not sure if its an option now on the other HT models or not.

I believe that Jayco will tell you that if a ladder was not factory installed, you should not add one, OR walk directly on the roof either. They add reinforcements under the roof so that all your weight in two places (your feet) will not bow the roof. Without the reinforcements that come with a factory ladder, you must spread your weight, either by putting down plywood to walk on, or resort to crawling so that your weight is spread out.

The roof construction is the same, ladder or no ladder. The blocking is probably already there they just don't include the ladder in the price.
