I agree. My next (future) TT will be without a ladder. Less holes in the outer panels, the better.

RV ladders in general just don't appear to be very stout to me. If I need to get on the roof I will use an extension ladder. The one on the trailer is for emergency use only in my opinion.

I hardly ever use my TT ladder, but I carry with me a Werner 13ft. telescoping-multi-position ladder. Folds up nice as well. I use it to clear the top of my slide before retracting it, and for just about any other needs around the TT.

If you watch for on-line sales you can pick up a Werner #MT-13 for $59: http://www.homedepot.com/Building-Ma...atalogId=10053

If you get a leak on the back wall on the other side of the trailer because sealant was misapplied or failed in use during the warranty period, the dealer would still be liable for repairs, and possibly damages, since it would be unable to prove your ladder installation caused the damage (of course, convincing them might be a bit of a challenge).

What's really useful for me is learning one can get blueprints from Jayco. Thanks for that info. That will be HUGE when I start modifying the unit I'm probably going to get.
I know a little about the Moss-Magnuson act.the dealers always try to scare you into getting the work done by them. It does not void the warranty of the whole trailer, and like you stated, they have to prove that the work you did caused the failure or problem.

You are right, the ladders aren't the sturdiest things. But I have on occasion needed to get on the roof while camping, and found myself parking my truck next to the trailer and climbing on the truck to get to the roof. It's just a little convenience that I felt I needed.
