Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Congrats on the new rig! Keep her between the ditches!

Most any RV dealer can install an awning and ladder for you.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Sounds like your coach may have been a rental. They are usually ordered without a ladder and awning.

You can shop around for awnings, but the issue will be getting it installed. I would look for a mobile installer for a competent install and a good price. I would stay away from Camping World specials. Their work can be hit and miss and I wouldn't want a poor awning install.

You can the manufacturer of your coach and buy the ladder from them or look on line. The awning installer would probably be a good choice to install the ladder. Buy it before the awning is installed and let them install both.

If you're not on the roof a lot, they make those small ladders that have about ten telescoping sections that can easily/safely get you on the roof. Just use a foam pad against the RV skin.

Good luck and congrats on your new coach.

Reference the ladder: Measure the height to the roof.. Several vendors sell TELESCOPING ladders.. Some of them are up to sixteen feet long (usually 10-16 foot in 2 foot steps) you want at the minimum 4 feet more than the height of the roof.. I really like mine (it is too short to get on the roof with but for so many other things it is perfect)

I also have a convertable Step/Extension ladder from Sears,, This one IS long enough

The one the factory put on the rig.. .In the trash can. (Well recyclers).

Oh, the convertable, it hangs on a couple "J" hooks I had a fabricator build, these are lagged into soild wood and hold my 300+ independently (That is either one will hold it) the ladder is rated 250 pounds tested to 500 and holds me as well. (both ladders) the one the factory screwed on.. Came off in my hand when I climbed it.

Awnings: Make a choice, manual or automatic, if automatic Carefree or Dometic/Attwood/WeatherPro.

The automatics suffer from wind sensor issues, other wise... I like mine.
Home is where I park it!

If you're looking for a portable (non-RV-attached) ladder I just picked up an Xtend & Climb 785P Aluminum Telescoping Ladder.

When selecting or replacing an awning and toppers, be sure it has Alumiguard to extend its' life.
