Step ladder for overhead area?

We need some kind of ladder to get up into the overhead area on our redhawk 29xk. Is there one that is available for that use? Or do you have to get a ladder of some kind and adapt it to it?

Our Greyhawk came with one, and there was a thread recently about it. What I don't recall is whether or not all Jaycos with the overhead cab bunk are *supposed* to come with one.

I think the jury was still out on that one.

What was discussed was:
- the Jayco one is pretty minimal and very uncomfortable
- many folks replaced their Jayco one with a small portable ladder

we will have to contact our dealer on this. The universal bunk ladder wont work as there is not a place to hook the ladder onto. It will have to be a jayco ladder just for the hawks.

I bought a Top Line (BL200-07) Docking System Bunk Ladder at Amazon for my Redhawk 29XK.

I measured the height and went to Menard's, a Midwest big box store. Tried them out in the store and then tried out in Seneca with the idea I might have to take it back. Works great and stores on bunk when not in use.

One guy on here got a one sided Louisville ladder on Amazon and added a small metal extension on it to bend over the hooks. You can order the Louisville ladders in one foot increments. Worked well for him. The rungs on the stock Jayco ladder really hurt the feet of an adult. Not enough support.

Redhawk bunk ladder

When we bought our new 2016 Redhawk 26x1 we were told that the Redhawk models do not come with a bunk ladder. We asked how we were supposed to get up into the bunk and they had no good answer. We told them if they wanted us to buy the rv they needed to provide a bunk ladder which they did. Not sure which one they put in but the two pins were attached to the bunk and the ladder just slides into those to keep stable.

Seems like the new units they are moving away with supplying a ladder. The best Best is measuring and mounting yourseld

for what it is worth, our Jayco 31DS came with a bunk ladder. So Jayco does supply them in some instances. However, I have used a kitchen 3 step step-ladder to get up in the bunk on other occasions.

It might have been me!
After riviting on the hook adapters I painted the ladder in black texture paint,. I thought I might need to carpet the steps, but the grandsons said it was fine as is. The wider treads make all the difference.
