Default Ladder for 189 fbs?

I have a 10 year old 189 Fbs and am currently replacing some of the plastic parts on the roof. Fortunately I am home where i have a ladder but what happens when I am not home? Can an aftermarket ladder be added to the 189fbs??? Thanks

I bought a telescoping ladder that I store in the inside closet. Only used it once but it's nice to know if something happens while camping, I have a means to get on the roof.

This may help you decide:

There is a range of prices from under $100 to around $300.

I paid about $70 for a new telescoping ladder - purchased on Ebay.

If you feel that a ladder is necessary, I’d recommend that you also include 2 or 3 pieces of 3/8” plywood or OSB (chipboard) ~24”x48” to place on the camper roof before working up there. IMHO, if there isn’t a factory installed ladder at the back of the camper, the designers had no intention for you to be on the roof! A couple of hundred pounds concentrated in an area the size of the sole of a shoe or boot could easily damage a roof that wasn’t made to be walked upon. Use of the 24”x48” sheets helps distribute weight over a much larger area and greatly reduces the risk of roof damage. Just sayin’
