Ladder on a Hybrid

Has anyone installed a ladder on their hybrid? I happen to have a X19H but any model in the Jay Feather line would be the same. If so, what brand, where installed, and any issues? I basically want to be able to get up to the roof to put on my Adco cover (and check any other potential issues) and prefer not to have to buy a ladder that likely will cost more than what I have seen for a attachable ladder at Camping World.

I would just use a step ladder. Can't imagine drilling holes in my trailer for a ladder. Besides how are you going to open your rear bunk with a ladder installed?

I will have to buy a step ladder tall enough to reach as my 6' one won't do and from what I have seen they aren't cheap. What would be the problem of drilling holes in the trailer for it? I had assumed that I would attach the ladder to the side opposite the door (front or back, I don't know).

never seen a ladder on the road side of a trailer. Depending on how far it sticks out it might work. To get on my roof I just stand on the bunk end and hoist myself up

As cheap as an RV ladder with no install and can be used for other things around the house.

I use a regular 8' folding ladder to get on the roof of my hybrid.

I could get on the roof of the X23B using my 6' step ladder. Getting down was a challenge but I managed.

If the wall isn't braced for a ladder you would have a big problem.

If you attach a ladder on the side of your trailer you may exceed the max width allowed by most states for trailers on the road. If you install a ladder on your trailer I think you'd have to attach it to one of the studs in the wall so the screws wouldn't pull out. Personally I don't think this is a good idea. Just my two cents. You don't have to get up on the roof that often, so I agree with the others a step ladder is best.
