Solved a problem that no one locally could. It took me a year to find this ladder for my 2000 RV 5th wheel. We bought our RV used last year. The original ladder was on it when we bought it, but the dealer removed the original before delivery to put on another customers RV that was complaining about theirs being broken. We didn't know for a few weeks and it has taken us since then to find this solution. You might want to advertise to RV dealers. (Rockport, TX) 310568

We bought a ladder for our RV since it came without one, it was very easy to install and could not be more happier with it, Joey 408411


Comments
it works great, we had a bad storm and blow off the top of our AC unit and the only way up was the ladder so we are very happy with it,

SP501L Ladder set Just on a year ago I bought a new to me motor home. At that time it did not have a ladder and enquirers revealed that there was a 6 mounts wait time with a price tag over $1000.. So I acquired 2 ladder kits and some attachments and behold the result for about $300. 617523

Product was as expected however customer support was great. Thanks. 593201

This ladder appears to be quality material. Because it is made to fit a variety of RV's, it takes a little time to size and cut the 3 psc ladder. But once it is sized, seems pretty easy to mount on your RV. And I'll add that etrailer has more RV/trailer parts at a better price than other vendors. That's why I always come first to etrailer and usually find what I need. Great outlfit! 733607

The services was, as always great. Ordered on Tuesday. Received on Thursday. And free shipping. The product was as advertised. .My only complaint is that the listing could have used more dimensions. It's listed as 97 inches but really about 108 inches from roof to bottom . And you can easily shorten it All and all a great purchase 603444

  • Best Ladder Rack for a 2001 Hurricane Motorhome

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.

  • Recommended Universal Exterior Ladder for T-100 Truck Camper
    The key to installing an exterior ladder like the Surco # SP501L is to ensure that you have structural elements at the rear of the camper to mount it. You can certainly leave off the top roof-mount portion and simply install the straight part of the ladder with the four included stand-offs. But in any case you want to ensure that you have strong enough materials under the camper's skin to securely accept the hardware and handle the weight load you'll put on it. Even though you're not going...

  • Will The Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder Mount to My Bumper.
    The Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder with Center Hinges for Contoured Rear Wall, # SP501L, will work when mounted to a bumper depending of course on the bumper position. This probably isn't the best case scenario as it would be better for a ladder to stay as close to vertical as possible, and this is why most ladders end before the bumper. This particular ladder is 97 inches long, but can be cut to achieve proper fit. If you are trying to get the ladder lower, you may be interested...

    In regards to the Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder part # SP501L, the distance from the uppermost mounting point to the inside edge of the ladder is 17" (see photo).

  • How Far Does Hinge of Surco Universal Ladder part # SP501L Fold Back
    The hinges of the Surco RV Ladder part # SP501L that you referenced will allow the ladder to fold up a little past 90 degrees if needed. Normally they don't end up folding that far since they are designed to fit the contour of the rear of an RV, but in your situation if you need a ladder that can fold up and out of the way this would be a great option. I attached a picture that shows the hinges folded right at 90 degrees for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Location of Top Step on RV Ladder
    There is not really a recommended location for the top step of an RV ladder such as the Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder # SP501L. Where this top step ends up being will depend a lot on the roof design and how the ladder is able to mount. Ultimately it is going to be a question of personal comfort/usability as to how far below the roof you want the step to be. Also keep in mind that with RV ladders, you will need to mount it where there are structural/frame components strong enough...
