2001 Damon Escaper Ladder

Don't even ask how I managed this, but I now need to replace the top section of the rear ladder on my Escaper. Called Thor and they have no info going back that far. I have a RV Salvage yard looking for a used one. Does anyone know who made the ladder or if a new one is even available?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank You

They have universal ladders where you can position the standoffs so they align with the holes of the old ladder. No new drilling required.
I just put one one on my coach. Had my house jump in the way backing up next to it

Those darn houses .

I was looking at the universal ladder but was wondering about the arc / setback on the roof. Are they all the same. Want to be able to line up to the holes on the roof rather then drill new holes and look for support braces etc. I can't seem to find a universal ladder on the web that gives me complete dimensions.

Actually on mine the top arch was positioned to the front about an inch to far.
I bought a section of aluminum pipe the same diameter as the standoffs that came with the ladder and made some new standoffs about an 1.5" longer than those supplied to make up for setting the ladder back further so the holes aligned on the roof.
Solved my problem of the toes of my shoes hitting the back cap when climbing the ladder

Thanks for the feedback and Tips, good idea to increase size of standoffs.

Thanks
