Dolphin Rooftop Ladder

I need a new nine-step ladder for our 2007 Dolphin LX. If you know the manufacturer, model number, and source I would be very thankful if you would respond. Thank you all very much!

Thank you for your help folks! Topline Mfg. apparently made all the rooftop ladders for National RV. The problem is, Topline never knew which ladder fit which RV. So, they will be happy to make you a new ladder, but you must send them your broken ladder so they can determine which ladder you need. I was advised to cut my broken ladder into three sections and ship it to them. Shipping is terribly expensive (as much, or more, than the cost of the new ladder), so I cut mine apart enough to squeeze it into a 1' (+/-) x 4' box, which shipped for $40.00. To accomplish that, I removed the top step, which allowed me to work with the large curves that lead to the roof. Topline told me two days later that the ladder would be shipped that afternoon or the following day. They also told me that shipping it to my RV repair business (Sonrise RV in Escondido, CA.)
would be far less expensive than shipping it to my residence. My Dolphin is still undergoing body repair and painting, so I haven't seen the ladder yet - but I have high hopes!

Did you receive the ladder? How did it look and work?

Perfect replacement. Lesson learned: Have it shipped to the business address where the installation is to take place (MUCH LOWER SHIPPING COSTS!!).
