I damaged our Rear Ladder pretty good last weekend and need to replace it.
Anybody know who makes the Rear Ladders for Redwood ?
Looking for a source for a replacement ladder other than having to go through Tiara RV to get one.

I damaged the ladder on my 36RL during the first year of ownership. I purchased the coach at Tiara RV, so, when I took the coach in for the first annual inspection, Tiara replaced it. I never determined how I managed to damage the ladder. The first rung hung down rather low but I have not had a problem since that first year. If I remember correctly, the ladder cost just over $100. plus for a new ladder and labor to install.

Rob,

Sorry to hear about your ladder. Check with Christianson Industries Inc. as they make a lot of ladders for rv units. They may or may not have been the supplier for Redwoods.

Damaged Rear Ladder, need replacement 1 week 1 day ago #4

11/10/17:

I called Tiara this morning to see if I could get the information on my particular ladder. Who knows...I might need one in the near future myself...There is a small sticker under one of the steps that will tell you the part number (I think that is what it is), the date of manufacturing, and the weight rating. Mine was about the 3rd step up. I had to bend over to see it.

With that in mind, you and I are going to have to wait for a while if we want a replacement.

The one piece black ladder is apparently manufactured by Christianson Industries. This was received by alternate resources.

Tiara won't give you ANY information about who made the ladder or why they can't get access to any. They will tell you that ladders are ONLY being made available to production and warranty claims at this time. Check back next year.

But after during some research, I think I now see why:

www.rvbusiness.com/2016/12/nhtsa-rv-firm...-for-faulty-ladders/

It seems that Christianson Industries may only be a small company trying to dig out of a deep well.

Per MANTA ( www.manta.com/c/mm2c8vf/christianson-industries-inc ):

Christianson Industries Inc
27328 May St
Edwardsburg, MI 49112
Phone: (269) 663-8502
Web: Christianson.com

Christianson Industries Inc is a privately held company in Edwardsburg, MI and is a Single Location business.
Categorized under Aluminum Sheet, Plate, and Foil.

Our records show it was established in 1981 and incorporated in MI. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of 8,856,492 and employs a staff of approximately 20.

So, after a web search, there were only 3 other Public manufacturers (not using private or hidden names like Christianson) that I could find:

SURCO

STROMBERG-CARLSON

TOP-LINE

I did find one other but at $380, I didn't think that would interest you.

The problem is that the public manufacturers seem to be making "Universal" style ladders (with 1 exception at Top-Line). In other words, they have a hinged ladder. I can't use that particular kind of ladder due to the location of the window and where the hinge would bend. At least, I don't want that to be a risk factor. You might be able to make it work, but I don't want to HAVE to "work" with it. I am assuming you would not either.

In any case, here are the alternates that are hinged (even though they say Universal):

PPL (Texas) has this one advertised. I'd at least call for price comparison if you go this route.

Make sure you have the correct top mount. There are apparently a couple of varieties out there.

Hopefully Redwood will get here someday now that they are Keystone - If I need ladder parts, I bring up my 3D exploded parts view on Winnebagoind.com using my specific serial number, click on the part, and I get a part number to order from Winnebago. Sometimes I can even put the part number on Amazon and they have it through the winnebago store.
