Why did Newmar ever introduce a black ladder? To me it is about entry level as you can go. Their '07 models were available with this, how bad can I make a ladder look option.
What were they thinking? Sorry to all that may have this zero deduct appendage.

It makes you wonder, just how much it saves them per coach?

Oh,oh! This may be a sensitive topic for those members that have this. Let me state, this is not my taste. Please read the below disclaimer.

Note: This is only the opinion of the poster and may be influenced by such things as age, time of day, alcohol, legal drugs, kat nip, or other like substances. P.S. Silver paint probably won't work.

Hi! I personally don't like any ladder. That is why we ordered our coach without one. We feel it looks much nicer. We carry a foldup ladder in our basement to access the roof (how often do we go up there anyway?). Paul

WELL!!!!!!......My ladder is black, and so is the awning hardware, and slideout covers(optional).

It didn't much matter to me, but I kinda' like it now.

This opinion is that of an owner.

This thing you call.....ladder....wassat?

I'm on my second Newmar coach and haven't SEEN a ladder on either of them.

You guys pulling my leg about this thing called L-A-D-D-E-R??


Truthfully, a black ladder on a dark coach probably looks ok, but a chrome or stainless ladder on a bright or light colored coach would look better to me.

That's because Bob has had an elevator in both of his coaches from Newmar.

Good point Bob, on the black ladder looking good on a dark coach. That might well be the case. The only ones I've seen, friends of mine, are on light colored bright coaches.

The silver ladder is kind of like a white or grey sat dome on a beautiful full body paint coach(neither one compliments the coach)!
