Stromberg Carlson RV Ladders - LA-401BA

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. Black color.


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
  • Black color complements your RV's exterior


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.

Well built and designed takes a bit of time and effort to fit The ladder to your specific RV but with some hack sawing and drilling it even fit my leisure travel van which has more curves then a play boy fold out Didn't get a five because the hardware was still galvanized and having paid double for black paint the hardware and flex hinges should've been black tool 400337



- LA-401BA

Product was received undamaged and all pieces and hardware accounted for. Instructions for assembly could have been more detailed but we're adequate for a person of moderate mechanical aptitude. As with most after market accessories, a moderate amount of improvisation was required. Since I was unable to anchor the rooftop section as well as horizontal supports to structural sections in all cases, I had to incorporate hollow wall anchors for horizontal supports as well as aluminum structural angles to mount roof anchors. Allow about 12 hours start to finish. As is always wise advice: measure twice and cut once. Also, make use of a good level often during installation process. Finished product was sturdy and plumb. 355792

The ladder is well made and it was shipped quickly. Installation was straight forward. My only reservation is the manufacturer provided hardware is not black. When you spend twice the price to purchase the black anodised ladder the hardware looks terrible. I wound up painting all the screws and hinges black to get a factory look. Spend the time to think about your particular installation and dry fit everything before you do the final install. It looks great and seems very sturdy. 412383


Comments

Thanks for your email and follow up. The Stromberg Carlson ladder I purchased from you has performed well and I have not had any issues with it. It makes roof access easy whenever needed and the black anodized finish matches the rest of the trailer. It truly looks OEM.

Well made product, easy to modify for universal applications. I was able to cut to length and install the ladder in about 1 hour of work. My suggestions for improvement would be to have black mid ladder couplers, instead of just silver galvanized, to match the black ladders, and to provide mounting inserts for fiberglass wall trailers with the kit. 595595

Strong and solid when mounted properly. Be sure to check with RV manufacturer for proper location, and seal the attachment points completely. 584015

This is a good, universal ladder replacement option. I would have much preferred a true replacement, rather than a universal substitute for it, but this did the job. You don't have to be a mechanic to install it, but you do have to cut some pipe and do a little work to customize it for your RV. My disappointments were that the brackets/mounts were rectangular, while my old ladder's were round. I would have had to plug the old holes in the side of my RV and drill new ones for these mounts. I ended up using some parts/brackets from my old (broken) ladder and some from this one to utilize my existing holes in the RV siding. Also, I paid considerably extra for the black ladder over the aluminum finish, and was disappointed that the connecting piece used to connect the top and bottom halves of the ladder was silver/metal color (I painted it black for my use). Bottom line. This will likely meet any ladder need you have, but it won't "replace" your original factory ladder. 566723
