Yes, first mod was transferring the vent hoods from the previous camper as well as inspecting the roof the first week we had it !!

Sorry, I can't see being upset with Jayco. It was how your trailer was optioned when ordered.

Look at it this way; it's like being upset with Ford when buying a car with manual windows, and they did not install the wiring so you could add the power window switch.

+1. Well said. If you wanted to add a ladder down the road, you should have asked if it was possible to do so. Not Jayco's fault, and as they say, hindsight is 20/20.

IMHO a ladder is really not that big a deal anyway, I have a ladder, and I'm trying to figure out how NOT to use it. I have a walkable roof, but it doesn't feel all that stable, so I would like to limit the time I spend up there as much as possible...

By no means are my upset with Jayco I just don't understand how a dealer can order a unit with every option avaliable with the exception of the 100.00 roof ladder option.
I guess if falls in line with someone going to McDonalds and ordering a super sized value meal then say"I'd like a diet Coke with that".
Like it's really going to make a difference at that point.

I think it was common to not have ladders on many trailers as roofs have not always been constructed as "walk-a-ble" roofs. And there are folks that will never walk on any roof to begin with. My ladder is an easy climb on the roof but not so easy come down. It's on a corner with nothing to hold on as you turn around and look for that first step. I don't mind it but I do know people that would have to call 911 to get back off the roof.
