It would have been an add-on by a previous owner. Previous discussions about putting on a ladder have indicated WRV never had them as an option or as standard equipment.

Previous discussion needs to be corrected. A roof ladder was a factory option, per the brochure, starting with the 2005MY.

John,

Looks like Rincon Parkway, on my 40 footer a ladder would mean I couldn’t get my Jeep in my spot with my Alpine. Tough enough as it is!!

Yep Terry, here now. I don’t know how you’d get a space big enough with a 40 footer and Jeep unless you park by the wall or space 61?

We can squeeze the Jeep in with about 2” of space between it and the MH, tires touching the line. We can’t park it without one of us guiding the other in and out. More often than not the space in front or back has a smaller MH and they’ll let us encroach a tiny bit.

Most of the parks employees are pretty decent about us touching or being half way across the lines.

One trip out there we’d been there for 3 days and they changed crews and the new guy made us move the MH 2” because we were hanging over the line. The spaces definitely could be a couple feet longer. I’m glad we don’t have a 45 footer.

We’re heading out there on the 13 for a few days.

Enjoy your stay!

Thanks, we’ll be back I think the 23rd of October. Meanwhile enjoy your trip.
We’re 36’ all most 37’ and park our Jeep in Front of the M/H. We take up most of our real-estate.🥴

Haven't been to Rincon or Emma Wood because Covid related cancellations. Is availability at either ok now? We can go any days.
Thanks Mark

Mark,

They’ve changed the reservation site and made it a little more user friendly. Rincon availability is pretty good, as good as it has been since reservations started.

I drove through Emma Wood a week ago and it is a real dump. I hadn’t camped there in7 or 8 yrs and it seems to have gotten worse. I was looking for a few spots to get in there with friends and I only saw a half dozen that I would want to stay in.

I know it’s been there since the late 50s or early 60s, I camped there then, and it looks like it. That said, I realize that there isn’t a lot that can be done with it but it could be cleaned up a little. They could grade the sites and remove the rocks and just make it a little nicer to pull into. It is a state park after all.

My 2 cents, Terry

To make reservations at Rincon it’s 3 months out unless you’re lucky enough to catch a cancellation.

Is a ladder installation service available at Rincon?

It would be tough because there’s no where to park along side of your r/v if you’re on the Rincon Parkway.
