I don't believe the "liability" story. Jayco went through an extended period, months, where their supplier was unable to ship ladders to them, due to manufacturing problems. So I think this experience led Jayco to re-think whether they could get away with eliminating ladders entirely. I got caught in the middle of that mess when my 2014 Melbourne needed a replacement ladder, and I got an earful about the disruptions that Jayco manufacturing was struggling with. At least they were surprisingly candid about the cause of inordinate delays. Hence the ladder was "engineered out" of my 2017 Precept 31UL, which I dislike. So now the question is: Can an owner like me order a replacement ladder for a 2016 Precept and have somebody install it with no problems, or did they also eliminate structural pieces behind the scenes, needed to drive the screws into?
