Interesting. I'm intrigued by the manual stating "Be sure that metal safety catch and bunk hooks face toward the motor home." I guess it's possible that the top half of the removeable exterior ladder is also used for the interior bunk ladder, though I've never actually seen that done. Would definitely like to see actual pics of the OP's ladder.

Simple solution, leave the 32 year old ladder attached where it is, and not risk breaking your roof ladder, and spend $50-75 on a step stool or bunk ladder, or build one one for a bit less (or free, if you have any scrap lumber laying around)

Agreed, although I'd still like to see a pic of the OP's ladder[emoticon]

Can you post a Pic? I have 43 years as a RV tech and I have NEVER! seen a inside bunk ladder ever attached to the exterior roof top ladder from the factory. It is possible that in 30 years, a previous owner attached that ladder to free up space. Doug


I will get an actual picture of the ladder as soon as I can, but for now, here is a page from the owners manual explaining how to put up the rear ladder.

You are comparing apples and oranges. YOU stated Bunk Ladder on rear exterior roof ladder. The link shows when the RV has a removable exterior ladder that is stored INSIDE the storage and then is installed on the exterior mounts. AND you have a 4 year older RV than the manual you stated. Bunk Ladders are usually short straight ladders that help get into the front overhead bed above the drivers seats. THAT type ladder is normally stored by lifting up that bunk mattress and laying underneath it. Doug


Doug, I owned a 91 Tioga and the OP has the definition of the ladder correct. It was the top of the line Tioga only. The ladder comes apart, via custom pipe couplers, in two pieces. When assembled it functions as a rear coach ladder and when separated the top piece functions as a front bunk ladder and the bottom piece stores in the passengers side, rear compartment. It was a very unique design and I've not seen it on other brands.
The coach probably looks like THIS.
