WRV never provided ladders for their coaches. In later years, I understand they could be special ordered from the factory. If you want a ladder, I think most aftermarket ladders could be adapted to fit. Check out the ladders at etrailer.com.

We had WRV install one when our coach was ordered in early 05. Think it was about a $200 option. It was in their brochure as an option at that time. Wouldn't be without it even though it has to be folded upwards to open the engine compartment door.

All coaches since 2004, and maybe earlier, have the blocking for a ladder, look up inside the engine compartment you will see it on the passengers side.

DrDaveMA, does the blocking look like molded fiberglass that sticks out from the inside of the rear cap?

Yes, it is a block of wood covered with fiberglass to attach the ladder to, thus why t is called "blocking".
