  • Silver
  • Stromberg Carlson

Stromberg Carlson's universal RV ladder can be attached to an RV with either a contoured or straight rear wall. The rustproof aluminum ladder fixes securely to the RV for a safe, strong hold when you're climbing up and down it.


Features:

  • Exterior RV ladder has 7 steps for easy and quick access to the top of your motor home
  • Pivoting mounting brackets at top of ladder ensure a secure fit on the RV roof
    • Allow ladder to pivot so that it can fit different RV roof contours
  • Optional hinges are included so you can use ladder with RVs that have angled, flat, or sloping rear walls
    • If using hinges on a flat wall, place the lower stand-off close to the hinge to prevent flexing
  • Ladder support pegs (or stand-offs) are positioned along ladder for additional strength
  • Sturdy, anodized aluminum construction is durable and rustproof
    • Made for stability and safety
  • Customizable length - cut bottom of ladder legs to adjust length for a perfect fit


Specs:

  • Weight capacity: 250 lbs
  • Dimensions: 99-1/2" tall (customizable) x 12" wide
  • 4 Ladder supports (or stand-offs) included
  • Rung spacing: 12"
  • 1-Year warranty


Note: The legs of the ladder can be trimmed for length with a hacksaw or tube cutter. When you are installing mounting brackets and support pegs, make certain that all screws are fastened to the RV's blocking or subframe on roof. If you are uncertain if your RV has backing installed, you should contact your RV manufacture to confirm. It is unsafe to use a ladder that is not connected to the RVs backing or sub frame


Stromberg Carlson's RV ladder is truly universal. Its unique design allows you slanted rear walls. Its length can be customized, and all necessary parts are included for installation.


Pivoting BracketCloseup Pivoting Bracket

The ladder attaches to your motor home's roof with pivoting mounting brackets, allowing you to position the angle of the ladder so that it remains parallel to the back wall of the RV. This works great for RVs with roofs that are curved toward the back. If the roof is curved toward the sides of the RV, you can simply trim the inside leg of the vertical portion of the ladder that attaches to the roof. In doing so, you will eliminate the difference in the slope between the inside and outside arms of the ladder.


Ladder Hinge

For an RV with a slanted or contoured rear wall, install the included hinges between the lower and upper sections of the ladder at the point where the wall is curved or angled. If your RV has a straight rear wall, just slide the lower ladder into the upper ladder, bolt the sections together with the provided hardware, and then place the lower stand-off close to the hinge to prevent flexing.


Set the length of the ladder by trimming the lower portion where it connects to the upper portion. Make sure that the bottom step of the ladder sits between 6 and 12 inches from the top of the bumper.


The included ladder support pegs, or stand-offs, attach between the first and second steps from the top and at about 8 to 10 inches below where the two sections of ladder connect. These supports provide additional strength and keep the ladder 5 inches away from the RV's rear wall.

Video Transcript for Stromberg Carlson RV Exterior Ladder Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson RV exterior ladder with hinges, part #LA-401. To gain access to the roof of your camper or RV, for cleaning, maintenance, setting up antennas or any other needs. The Stromberg Carlson exterior ladder can be customized to fit your specific camper or RV. The pivoting mounting brackets and hinges ensures that it can be mounted to angled, sloped, and flat walls or roofs. Because it's customizable, it can be mounted on the side or rear, whichever works best for you. As you can see on this camper here, we've got it mounted on the side and it works out nicely. When your ladder arrives, it's going to be 99 1/2 inches tall.

However, you can shorten it to any length you need. To achieve your desired height, you will have to cut some of the tubes. We recommend a hack saw or a pipe cutter. The rungs are 12 inches apart and feature a textured non slip surface. It secures to your camper or RV at 8 different locations for safety and stability.

We have two here at the bottom, two here at the center, two here at the top and at the very top with the uprights you have two more. All the hardware you need to get it installed is included. It's constructed of a light weight aluminum so it won't corrode or rust and it has a weight capacity of 250 pounds. That's going to complete our look at the Stromberg Carlson RV exterior ladder with hinges, part #LA-401.

I used this to add a ladder to my Scamp trailer, which has no straight sides and all rounded corners. This ladder is flexible enough to accommodate this installation. I like it. It feels sturdy and looks good. 433175

My ladder had been hit and bent in a couple places. It was broke off completely on one side at the bottom so was pretty wonky to use. the 401 replacement was great as it fit right where it needed to go. Took about 3 hours and turned out looking great and solid too! 203804

Great ladder, great price, and easily installed. Fit adaptability (cut to fit) was especially beneficial. 139934

I knew when I ordered that the top may not fit correctly due to the angle of the roof. I was able to cut top section of old ladder off at the first step and attach to new sections. No problems and looks great. I used all items that came with new steps stand offs ect. My old ladder was bent towards the bottom from jack knifing at cargo trailer into it. For the money you cant go wrong. 585312

This is the cheapest and may be the only way to replace a ladder. Mine is not even made anymore and was bent up. The top on the original was longer so I just cut it off and joined it to the replacement with a copper pipe inside and riveted it together. 756050

The ladder came quickly and was exactly as described. Great!. I had backed too close to the garage, (the devil made me do it) and crushed the ladder on my Jayco. Only was damaged in the upper end, top 3 feet. Cheapest way to repair the ladder was to cut off the upper part and use that portion of the new ladder to replace the crushed part. Worked well. I will say the replacement isn't as strongly built as the original ladder but certainly will do the job, especially considering the reasonable cost. Very pleased indeed. 688446

Extremely fast service. I have a Dutchman Voltage V-3905 Toy Hauler. etrailer recommended that I get the LA-401 ladder and the LA-148 extension, as the original 110" ladder is not available through etrailer, and cost over $300 from Dutchman through the camping store. The two items came to just over $100 so I got the free shipping. I placed my order yesterday at about 2pm. They were delivered to my house by UPS at 10:14 this morning, wow! They look very good, I don't plan to install them until this spring when it warms up a little (presently we have 15" of snow on the ground). I will add an update and a photo afterwards. 597694

Ask the Experts about this Stromberg Carlson RV Ladders

  • Replacement Ladder Needed for 2000 Tiffin Zephyr Motorhome
    While we don't have an exact replacement for the ladder on your 2000 Tiffin Zephyr, I can say that one of our universal ladder fits should fit the bill. I recommend using the Stromberg Carlson RV Exterior Ladder w/ Hinges which is made of aluminum, measures 99-1/2" x 12", and comes in Silver # LA-401 and Black # LA-401BA. The reason I recommend this ladder is because it can be cut to fit any height if you need less than the 99-1/2". If you need over 99-1/2" then we have the extension...

    The Stromberg Carlson RV Exterior Ladder part # LA-401 is my recommendation for a 2018 Jayco Melbourne 24L so you were right on track. The Stromberg Carlson Ladder is an excellent option because it has the overall height you need, is made of rust-proof aluminium so it should always look like new, and is pretty easy to install with only minimal modifications required (drilling for standoffs). The Stromberg Carlson Ladder is by far the most popular option to either add or replace an existing...

  • Ladder For Lance Truck Camper that Has Hinge and Can Fold
    For an RV ladder that has a hinge half way up the ladder we have the Stromberg Carlson # LA-401 which would work well for you. The hinge allows the lower portion to fold like you are wanting so that it can match an angled RV wall like in the picture I attached. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Ladder Replacement for a 2003 Monaco Monarch SE Motorhome
    The Stromberg Carlson RV Exterior Ladder part # LA-401 is an excellent option for your 2003 Monaco Monarch SE Motorhome to replacing an existing ladder. The hinged design will be needed for the curved rear exterior wall and the customize-able length will give you a great first step height. The locations of the stand-offs should be able to be reused for an easy install. If you need a lower step height then you can add the Stromberg Carlson RV Ladder Extension part # LA-148.

  • Stromberg Carlson Ladder fit on 2009 Lance 825 Truck Camper
    The Stromberg Ladder part # LA-401 is a universal ladder designed to fit as many RVs as possible. If Lance says that you can only install one of their ladders I wouldn't recommend you go against that recommendation as it could void warranties. I am sure there is a way you could install the # LA-401 on your RV if you really wanted to though. If the supports on your RV are 13 inches apart the mounts of this ladder should be able to line up with them pretty easily.

    The correct exterior ladder for your 2015 Jayco Redhawk Motorhome is the Stromberg Carlson RV Exterior Ladder part # LA-401 which is 99-1/2" tall. However, in order to be certain you will want to take a quick measurement from the roof line to the bottom of the cab. As long as the above distance does not exceed 99-1/2" tall then this ladder will be perfect for you. If it does then you will also want to add the Stromberg Carlson RV Ladder Extension part # LA-148.

  • How Does RV Ladder Stand-Off Assembly of LA-401 Install
    We don't have a diagram of how the stand off of the # LA-401 installs but I did attach the only diagrams we have for this ladder. Basically though the shank of the stand off fits through the mounting bracket and then a screw goes through the ladder tube into the top of the stand off. The base is then attached to the RV wall.

  • Ladder For Four Winds 28 Foot Trailer
    If your Four Winds RV does not offer an exterior ladder on the back it is possible that the reason is because there is no suitable mounting location strong enough to support a ladder.

The ladders we carry are universal fit items meant to fit most applications so you have to go by the measurements and the style.
