Rear Ladder repair

While on a several week tour, the bottom one foot of my rear ladder was knocked off. From that point up, the ladder is perfect. I'd like to repair the ladder if possible since I hate to replace seven or eight feet of perfectly good ladder, especially when I will have to re-seal where the ladder attaches to the roof and re-seal around all the other connections. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks. Komac

Pictures would help determine an approach that might work with your set-up.

Find part from an RV junk yard.
I repaired mine a few years ago.
Use 1/2" water pipe to couple pieces together it just fits inside
I used machine screws but you can use pop rivets also.

Great idea! I don't know of an RV junk yard near here, so I'm going to try the half inch water pipe suggestion. Thanks. Komac

RV Ladder Repair Parts - Factory RV Surplus Here they are, easy to work with and they have plenty of supply.

Make sure you have a good tube cutter. I replaced a middle section of mine. I had to self learn a little about getting the steps on my ladder off but the remainder was simple and the repair is sturdy and not noticeable.

Site above, just call them and tell them what length.
I needed two three foot sections, they cut a 6 footer down, avoided paying oversized shipping

Many thanks for all your help, folks! I'm going to contact Factory RV Surplus today. I grew up in the depression days and hate to throw good things away if a little effort can repair them. Thanks again. Komac
