Bunk Ladder For 28DSBH

Has anyone put a ladder to get up to the second bed in the 28DSBH? I'm wondering if just getting a step stool is an option.

my brother and I are trying to figure this out too, but hard to do as we have not taken delivery on our trailers yet. I was thinking of building a ladder just big enough to put 1 foot on all the way to the right of the bunks between the lower and upper bunks. But without the trailer I am not sure if that idea will work. If you or anyone else comes up with something, I would love to hear what you've done. We we looked at the trailer at the show, I noticed the kids using the bathroom door knob for leverage. They definitely CAN NOT continue to do this when we get our trailers. The knob will not last.

Whatever you wind up doing... can you post in the Jayco Mods forum to help others thinking of purchasing this model?

I have a 184bh. My kids also use the bathroom door knob to jump into the top bunk. It has worked well so far, but this year I will be finding a more permanent solution. I have a friend that made a decent looking ladder out of 2x4s, but I was thinking about doing something a little more refined ut of metal. Something that I could remove, paint to match, wouldn't have to make a permanent modification to the camper.

I would love to see some pics!

The quick fix for us was to purchase a folding 3 step ladder. It is a mild pita but does the trick. I also use the ladder when I need to clean the top of the slide off before we bring it in. Bought it at Costco for under $20. Definitley not as nice as a matching wooden ladder though.

This is the same ladder I bought for my bunkroom. As you can see in the photo, I modified it by cutting a couple inches off the bottom and built a landing that slips over the top bunk rail. Easy to take down and store when not needed and sure helps the grandkids bunk up at night.
