Sorry for the troubles... I'm a member of the Big-Boys Club of 250+. Although, I am comfortably below the 300 lbs rating for my ladder, the few times I have been on my roof it has crossed my mind about the build quality of the ladder....

Well, Jayco upgraded a ladder once, they should be willing to do it again! (ummmm ya would think anyhow). Hopefully it never fails on you

Here is what is on my 2010 Designer. It is rated for 300 pounds and I hope I never get to that point.

Man... Ed! Ya know, if the ladder says 300lbs it better do it! Based on what we saw when dealing with this issue, I'm guessing that the ladder you have will deal with the load it says it will. If not! I know you will deal with it and we will definitely stand you (I'm guessing that ladder wiill be fine though)

I just installed my Atwood Jayco ladder about a month ago. Third time I used it the plastic
end cap on the rung broke. I weigh 200 lbs. I installed it just for limited use in emergencies.
If you are thinking of getting one, save your money, they are junk.

Atwood is junk regarding their Jayco ladder; they do have a higher failure rate. Post #7 has information on the upgraded Jayco 6006 model ladder which does not crack under Don's current 260lb weight. Post #12 shows pic of that ladder. Check with Jayco and see if they will upgrade the ladder for you

I emailed Atwood. They said they would replace the end caps free of charge.
I haven't replied back to them yet, but I want to know if this is going to be a recurring problem, and if it's a safety hazard.

For us it was a recurring problem. First ladder failed first time Don went up it soon after we took delivery. Dealer replaced it with the same ladder. Left the dealer and headed to a cg. Next day, Don went up and "pop", there it went (pics posted earlier in this thread). Went to dealer (it was a Sunday and service was closed) so we tried a couple of other of the same "300lb" ladders of which they cracked (salesman gave us permission to try them)! Salesman then took us to Jayco Eagle Superlite with the Jayco 6006. It didn't crack under Don's weight. Dealer shared all of this with Jayco and received authorization to replace our oem Atwood with the upgraded ladder for free
