Hello everyone, I would like to replace my rear ladder, it is oxidized and coming loose. I never felt comfortable climbing on it.
My question is does anyone know of a company that makes these out of stainless steel and more stronger ?

Dave, I think the only option for SS would be in the marine area and models with the round-top boarding will probably be confined to the 4 to 5 foot length. If you are one that carries a short ladder for cleaning the windshield that option could work. To get a ladder sufficiently long I think you would be looking for a boat salvage yard or the back lot of a marina to obtain a fly-bridge ladder.
I may be wrong and a similar call to RV/camper salvage yards might produce the exact thing your wanting.
Happy hunting,
Tim


Part 1: How do you fold a fitted sheet?
Part 2: Where do you look for socks if you don't have a fitted sheet in the dryer?

Stromberg Carlson is the key producer for all of the standard rv ladders. You can get a replacement for the original hardware in the $100 range. Available on either Amazon or EBay.

this Barth has seen better days but the ladder looks interesting. Guess it folds up so as not to block any rear lights / vents.. Guess if top portion is extra strong-ly mounted, should be ok..



other Barth forum links, using search term 'Ladder Mounting'...

Mike, the roof access ladder folds up to gain entry to the engine compartment. It should be secured in the down position while driving. It would bounce down if left in the up or engine access position.

One possible option for strengthening the tubular ladder is something I've read about, not done...

In the early days of DIY Ultralight Airplanes, some folks would inject 5:1 expanding foam (gap sealer) inside tubing to increase strength and rigidity.

I know the technique is specified for the Aluminum tub fuselage/tail-boom of the Hovey Whing Ding II biplane.
