Side Ladder Replacement

Does anyone know where I can get a new ladder for the outside? It is on the side and is on pivots so it folds up against the side. I'm sure most everyone here has the same thing. Anyway, I tore mine off and need a new one. Anyone know a place that sells them? I've looked online but the only ones I can find are the ones that mount on the back and don't fold up. My brackets are all ok, it's just the actual ladder that is ruined.

Give us the make, model and year of the RV. Maybe somebody is familiar with it.

It is a 2012 Elevation 3612. It was the first year of the Elevation series.

A picture would sure help. Anyway take a look here and see if there is something that will work.

Lloyd, I'll try to get a photo of the ladder, but it is just like the one in the craigslist ad Mark posted below yours.

Mark, I'll shoot that guy a text tomorrow and see if he can ship to Texas. Thanks for the info!

Good find Mark.
That is exactly what I remember seeing on the side of a toy hauler a couple years ago.

Rather than replace a light duty, one use ladder, you might consider a generic fold up ladder that can be used for many other things...
(less likely to be ripped off again too )

depending on your storage maybe something like this or this ?

good luck !

I actually took my oem ladders off and use a 3rd party ladder much more for times when I am not getting on the roof, but working on something on the side ... and still can be used to get on the roof (if I want to scare myself !)

Last week I used my buddies extension ladder to put our Dish Tailgater on my roof. It was a really nice ladder to use. Collapses and extends easily, is sturdy and light. Takes up very little space. I wish I had it during my six week trip this year instead of hauling around a standard five foot ladder and standing on the top step. Maybe an option for you?

Thank you all for the suggestions.

I have actually reached out to CrossRoads, who won't sell parts directly, and the put me in touch with Tiara RV. I have talked to them and they have given me a price for the ladder and shipping. Won't be cheap, but nothing on these things ever is! I'm actually going to order a couple of other parts that I need.

Again, thanks for all of the suggestions.

I'm curious if you had used the ladder much before it was damaged. Our ladder looks good, but I haven't used it yet. I don't have a good reason to go up onto the roof, so I haven't used the ladder yet.

Don't you check the seams and caulk seals around all the items on the roof? With the flexing of the rv going down the road seams and other items open up sometimes. I check mine a few times a season and right before winter.

Mark is right.
You need to go up and check things out. Mine is basically sitting in a park as we fulltime and take a 7000 mile trip every year. I check mine every 3 mths and you would be amazed at the changes in the caulk etc just sitting still in the sun here in CA. Moving down the road would compound the issues.

I do use mine on occasion, one year we sat up there to watch fireworks. We keep it in a covered spot, so it is only exposed when we are out in it. It sounds like I need to get up there more often though to check out the caulk and the roof in general.

We've only had ours a couple of months and we've probably had a quarter inch of rain in that time. I'll check the roof in the fall.
