Video Transcript for Review of Surco Products RV Ladders - Exterior Ladders - SP502L

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at Today, we're gonna take a look at the Surco 84 1/2 inch tall Universal Exterior RV Ladder. Now, this ladder will let you easily get to the top of your motorhome using this 84 1/2 inch tall rustproof aluminum ladder. Basically, this ladder will bolt to the rear of any RV to give you a nice, quick, easy access to your motorhome's roof. Now, all the mounting hardware is included. Wanna zoom in, we'll show you the top.

You can see the top, so it has hooks on it, and it has the brackets installed right here. The top of the ladders will attach to the roof of the RV using these included brackets, and then it does include these four support brackets, I wanna pick one of these up and just show you, it includes four of these. And basically, these four supports can be mounted anywhere along the length of the ladder for additional support, and drilling is required. Basically, you just line them up sort of like that, up against there, and then you'll drill a hole into the tubing, and run this bolt through there to hold it into place, and again, you can run those the length of the ladder for the extra support. Now, the bottom of the ladder, if I zoom back down the bottom, you can see at the very bottom, again, it comes with the brackets on it, and the hardware's included.

At the bottom, it'll attach to the rear of the RV. And then if we zoom back out, it does have a total of six wide, non-slip steps, provide excellent stability and sure footing. The overall width on these steps is gonna be 12 inches, inside measurement is 10 inches, the step height from one step to the next step is 12 inches. They do use a nice, lightweight one inch diameter heavy-gauge aluminum tube construction, very durable and rustproof, and the overall ladder itself only probably weighs about seven or eight pounds. You can see it has a nice, bright-dipped polish finish to it to give you a nice clean look on your RV, and it is made in the USA.

Again, we mentioned the overall length, it's 84 1/2 inches, and the weight capacity on this is 250 pounds. But that should do it for the review on the Surco 84 1/2 inch tall Universal Exterior RV Ladder..

Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder - 84-1/2" Long - SP502L

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (40 Customer Reviews)

Easily get to the top of your motor home with this rustproof aluminum ladder. Included supports can be mounted anywhere along the length of the ladder. Wide, no-slip rungs provide excellent stability.


The ladder looks good, and seems sturdy enough for what it is. However, the labeling of the length is completely misleading. One would think you would measure from your bumper to your roof, and the ladder would be specified for that measurement. No. It goes at least a foot above the roof, meaning that the bottom of the ladder is a foot higher than you want it to be. Getting onto this ladder would be really, really hard. The assembly instructions are also completely inadequate. No information about where to locate it, how to seal holes, etc. Photo shows how short it is (uninstalled)... our trailer isn't particularly tall.

We're going to need a different ladder.


Like usual, the product is even better than the original, AND even better than the description! I use the comments to prepare myself for any limitations (this item was warned to have a "need for better Instructions"). It is so nice to have every trailer item I order be better than expected! This Ladder kit is designed to fit any RV shape or application and is an excellent value.


Have had a lot of problems with this ladder. It is nice looking,but not strong at all. It broke the first time I used it. Pipes just knuckles and broke. Ended up reinforcing it with galvanized pipe inside the existing tubing.

This ladder has a one inch heavy-gauge aluminum construction and a weight capacity of 250 pounds. I checked and we do not offer a ladder with a higher capacity.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/24/2022


Outstanding piece of hardware. Easily assembled. Instructions are not written for a novice. If you are reasonably handy you'll have no problems. If you don't know the difference between a machine screw and a sheet metal screw by sight or touch, get help.

Randall - 08/07/2021


I have to cut 2" off the top end and use the old round mounting flanges under the new rectangular ones to use the existing holes, but it should all work fine. Can't mount it until spring - camper is in winter storage.

Worked fine, also loops on top end dont stand up as tall as old ladder which is good.
Gary - 10/29/2021


The ladder is installed and looks good. Quality and fit are good. The only suggestion I would make would be for the manufacturer to consider stainless fasteners as this is an outside ladder and rust will be a problem.


As promised, installation went fine, included hardware did the trick.


An excellent ladder, exactly as advertised. All the parts were there and installation was easy.

Im very happy with the ladder. It was easy do it yourself project. I would highly it.
Jerome - 11/22/2021


Assembly instructions could be better w ritten.


this ladder is high quality,however the jointing screws will scrape you hands when climbing up and down, I used stainless steel rivets instead.The mounting screws seamed like they would back out after time, so I borrowed a"nut zert" kit and bought stainless steel screws to mount it.I would have to make these modifications to any ladder I bought, however I have been looking for a rv ladder for a wile and this by far the most sturdy well made best fitting one I have found.Great price, fast shipping and made in USA ,what a deal! thank you!


First of all etrailer is great. I buy hundreds of items per year online and etrailer has the best communication by far. They were very quick to inform me of status of the order when there was a problem.

But I will say that I agree with what I have seen others say about this ladder. It is nice looking and I am guessing it is durable. But [online store] could avoid a lot of negative reviews and calls if they would spend an hour adding pictures and more details to their one page of instructions.

I am an engineer and I won't have any problems, but for a casual do it yourselfer, I can see why it might be problematic to figure this out. [online videos] are your friends.


The ladder is as advertised. Very easy to install. It would be better with SS screws and bolts. Made in US a bonus.
There was a screwup with the Post Office (their fault) and Heather in customer service was a wonderful help.
I will continue to do business with etrailer.

The ladder has been a good addition to the camper. I definitely would recommend it.
Kip K - 07/15/2018


The ladder arrived on time in good condition. I needed it to replace the original equipment ladder on my trailer. All the parts necessary were included. After a few modifications I was able to make it fit back into the original mountings. It looks great. The only suggestion I would have is to provide stainless steel mounting nuts & bolts to minimize rust.


The ladder was what it was supposed to be, shipping was spotless and the delivery time was swift. Not much else one can say about a ladder or the supplier. Excellent all around.

No pictures, I traded the RV.


Exactly what I was looking for.


Easy to install, looks great. I think the ladder should come with stainless hardware to prevent rusty,corroded screws and bolts. It should also have a backing plate for the mounting brackets to prevent a possible wear hole in the RV surface. I would not mind paying a few bucks more for better hardware.


Ladder arrived in a timely manner. It’s on the trailer easy to install. Extremely happy with the product would definitely recommend your company. Thank you.


We are very happy with the camper ladder that we ordered from etrailer. The order process was simple, the delivery was prompt, and the product was of the best quality. The instructions were easy to understand, and we had it installed in minimal time. We would highly recommend etrailer for any and all of your camper needs, and the service and quality were stellar.


All worked out. Had to do some slight modification to have it fit into the existing holes for attachment. No Problem. The shipping box was quite beat up and the zip lock that held the jiblets had come open. Luckily the parts were contained. Will do business with you anytime


Easy installation plenty of space for your feet on the steps still looks great


It arrived on time, easy installation, works as described.


etrailer provides unique hardware related products at great prices for any RV owner or hauling needs and much more.


Excellent customer service. George was promptly keeping us updated on the status of my order. The ladder was super easy to install and is super convenient!


E trailer always delivers exceptional s ervice


Ladder is light weight. Should have gone for better quality. Rehabbed the original ladder rather then fill holes and drill new ones.

  • Can a Ladder be Added to a 2013 Dutchmen Aspen Travel Trailer
    The ladders we carry including # SP502L are considered universal fit items so you would go with one that best fits your needs. Some can be trimmed shorter than the stated height. To install a ladder the pegs that attach to the trailer and hold the ladder must be attached to structural components behind the trailer wall. So you would have to know where the vertical supports are within the trailer's body. Think of them like studs in a wall in your house. The trailer manufacturer may be able...

After some research, I was able to to determine that the ladder that came on your RV from factory is 73-15/16" long x 12-3/8" wide. I recommend using the Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder part # SP502L as this ladder is 84-1/2" long x 12" wide.

  • Distance Between Surco # SP502L Ladder and Wall
    According to my contacts at Surco, the stand-off supports are 5 inches long, which means that the ladder would sit about 5 inches away from the wall. To get the 7 inches you were looking for, you could attach some two inch thick blocks of wood to the wall, and have the stand-off brackets attach to the blocks.

  • How to Measure for Surco # SP502L RV Ladder
    The height listed for the RV ladders we offer doesn't include the height of the return, or the 'hook' portion at the top of the ladder. In the case of the # SP502L RV Ladder, the overall height is 84-1/2-inches and from mounting surface to mounting surface the dimension is 76-1/2-inches. When the 8 inch height of the return is added, the full height of the ladder is 92-1/2 inches. So, if you'd measure down from the RV roof by 84-1/2 inches, you know where bottom of the ladder would sit.

  • Fit of Surco Replacement Ladder SP502L on 1999 Four Winds RV
    When replacing the rear ladder on your 1999 Four Winds RV the key is making sure the new ladder mounts to the RV's structural components under its outer skin. It is possible that the screw holes will not line up exactly but so long as they allow the included fasteners to reach those structural components the ladder will be able to safely support its maximum rated weight load of 275-lbs.

  • Can 2012 Jayco 23RBS Have Ladder Installed on Rear of It
    Sounds like you are concerned about whether you can install a ladder on your 2012 Jayco 23RBS or due to the roof of the motorhome not having enough backing or support. This is a very valid question that can only really be answered by Jayco. Most likely the roof is reinforced but only Jayco would be able to tell you exactly where that bracing would be. The Surco part # SP502L is a very universal style of ladder that would work well most likely. It's 84-1/2 inches tall overall.

    I believe you are referring to the studs on the back wall of your RV being 15 inches on center. If this is the case, the standoffs included with the Surco Universal Exterior RV Ladder # SP502L will not be able to be install at a distance wider than the ladder itself which is 12 inches. This width is pretty standard for RV exterior ladders so we do not carry a ladder that is 15" wide. I would recommend installing one set of standoffs (either the two left or the two right ones) along one...
