Since my earlier reponse to you about the roof ladder on the Eagle 26.5 RLS, I have this unit on order. I then went on EBay and ordered a collapsible 12.5 ft ladder. It arrived yesterday, and I feel it will definitely do the job. It will fit in the compartment, and weighs only 26 lbs. Problem solved, and no ladder to obstruct the view out the rear window. I hope this helps.

Well, I finally got an answer. After no response to my two emails I decided to call customer service (should have done that to start with). Come to find out there is blocking for a permanent ladder and CS said its o.k. to have a Jayco dealer install one so she sent me the back wall schematic. The blocking is at the very left side so a permanent ladder will cover the window to some extent, but that does not bother me. The collapsible ladder looks good and the "jury" is still out on that one but I am leaning toward the permanent ladder at this point. BTW, its o.k. to walk on the roof of the RKS26.5 5er, just need to be careful.
Thanks for all the feedback!

They are way cheaper than having one installed on your trailer. Check ebay or amazon, lots of them around.
I bought this one last year to use with our 23J. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o08_s00_i00
I wish I could return it now because or new trailer is coming with the roof ladder already attached. But the telescoping ladder was great and very easy to use!

I have been wanting to install a ladder on my 29X, also. I just sent Jayco an email requesting the specs.

Bad news from Jayco. Due to the fact that the rear wall in my TT is a vacuum sealed wall, I cannot install a ladder. I guess I'll keep the folding ladder on board.

As I noted before, I have ordered the HT RLS26.5, also am going to use the collapsible ladder to access the roof. I would be interested in seeing the schematic of the back wall that Jayco sent to you.

I don't think the 26.5 RKS schematic would work for your unit due to the rear window configuration. If you call Jayco, they will send the correct one to you in an email attachment. They sent it to me while I was on the phone with them...quick!
