Ladder

I own an Integra anthem 2019 and I would like to install a ladder on the rear. I have read posts regarding this insulation. Does anyone have any specs on how to attach the ladder and where to purchase?

As far as I know the 2019 Anthem will not have the wood backer plates in behind the rear cap so attaching a ladder will be an interesting proposition. The backer plates were discontinued in around 2016.

Going to be a difficult addition. I'd think twice.

757 Driver is correct. When the body style changed from the "classic" design, the rear cap was no longer reinforced to accommodate a ladder. When I inquired about putting a ladder on my '15, Tadd Jenkins told me I would go to RV Hell if I put a ladder on that "work of art"

Yup, if you want to blame someone for you not having a ladder on your coach, Tadd’s the guy!. I do miss the convenience of it but he is right, it looks a lot better!
Do not install one because, as it has already been said, there used to be reinforcements molded into the fiberglass to support the weight of someone climbing on it and that support is no longer there. If installed, it will only be a matter of time before it cracks out. Sorry

I use this ladder.

It's light and compact. A light duty little giant is another option

I use a similar one but the 17ft version so it goes slightly higher over the edge of the roof line.

That extend and climb ladder has been known to fail.

The Little Giant is safe, IMO It also fits very nicely in the basement....

Mine has not failed yet, but on a couple of occasions, one side of the rung has not seated properly allowing one side to slide down a bit. You raise a good point

yes, but not good for climbing up around windshield or detailing around outside. I think adjustable step of little giant is more versatile.jmho.
