2015 Jay Flight 26BHS Bunk Ladder

It is a little tough for my 9 year old to get in and out of the top bunk. Has anyone built a bunk ladder or do you use anything else to help get in/out of the top bunk in this model? Things are a little tight with the bathroom door, but I am thinking about building a wooden ladder. If you have built something, could you post a picture of it. Thanks.

https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ht=bunk+ladder look at the 8th post down in this thread...something like that should work given the limited space between the bathroom door and bunks. Other have made rope ladders.

I built a ladder for our 267. It is wooden, and removable, so I can throw it on top of the bunk when not needed. I can try to get pics for you if you are interested.

I bought a ladder from my dealer the day I picked up my 26BHS and it actually worked out very well. I am out of town until Friday, so I will try and post a picture or two along with the make of it when I get home. It's really light and narrow...can be stowed in the lower bunk, but I just leave it installed.

I built mine out of PVC pipe, I inserted 2 old aluminum broom handles down the side shafts for added strength, then screwed 2 hooks at the top to secure to side of bunk. My 11y/o son uses it to gain access to his top bunk. I have tested it out myself, it works well and it's lightweight.

It cost me $50 in materials.

Jenoble 99, thanks for the offer. I already found some good wood ladder options in the other thread that Iraqvet05 posted.

CDavid, I would like to know which ladder you got from the dealer. A picture would be nice if you get time. It would take a lot less time to buy than build.

Thanks to all for the ideas.

Another great idea AV3NGER. Looks good and easy materials to work with.

Man i wish you would have posted this a month ago, had same problem with my boys so i made small mahogony steps and screwed then directly to the 3'' wall between bathroom door and bunks, then i mounted a small grab handle up just high to reach. Think of a rock climbing wall on the back yard swingsets. One foot on first step then other on bunk then foot on next step and then they pull themselves up onto top bunk. Wish i could take pics but she's put away for winter. Hard to explain but works very well. I have a 12,10 and 8yr old works for all and me too. Btw the mahogany was readily available to me and matched very well
