Bunk Ladders

So we are looking at the 35B by winnebago. Noticed the bunks don't have a ladder. It's not a deal breaker, but with young kids how do they get to the upper bunks? The Class C's we considering all have ladders.

I bought a ladder for my Class C at CW about 12 years ago. Used it in a TT with bunks next. Current Class A came with a ladder, but I still have my old ladder. Most RV part shops can get you a ladder

Great ideas. Its a brand new 2013. Dealer said they don't come with them when I asked. I was surprised because they can't be that expensive.

I checked and CW has them for $60.

Thanks.

If it's a new RV being purchased from a dealer, I'd write it into the sales contract.

When we looked at our 2012, I noticed that some manufacturers provided one and some didn't. It wasn't a big deciding factor for me and we ended up with one that didn't. We have two nine year olds and a 6 year old. the older kids could get up and down without one so I didn't worry about it. After having a couple falls out of the top bunk I covered a 3/4"x6" plank with some spare material and created a little ledge to keep someone from falling out. at the same time I thought i'd build a ladder for the lil guy to get up there as well. I bought some 2" wooden dowl that would be used as a hanger rod in a closet and a couple 3/4"x4" slats for the ladder sides and built my own. I hooked it to the to bunk with some simple brackets. Looks nice and everything is completely removable with no signs that it was ever there should we ever sell the rig and the next owner doesn't want that stuff. You can also stain, paint, or use material to cover the wood so that it matches with the rest of the decor. I'm happy with how ours turned out.

Thanks everyone. Not a deal-breaker on the ladder, but local dealer only willing to go 18% off MSRP on a cash deal. Looks like we'll continue looking.

Good move as I find that answer "they don't come with the ladders" to be unacceptable.
A bunk bed coach without access to the top bunk ???
