Replace a Navion Ladder ?

It seems someone planted a tree right behind my Navion, resulting in a bend and crack in the top section. (I have 2 backup cameras just to prevent such things.. gee) Would like to replace with the original part 161113-11-CHT but google searching shows no exact match. I may have to find a generic one to replace it with so I am curious what is behind the back skin where the ladder mounts are ? My guess is any other ladder may have different mounting positions. Any recommendations on a replacement ? This ladder has 7 steps.

Forgot to say the ladder is still functional but at some point the crack in the pipe may be a problem.

Does your ladder have 7 steps? I thought Stromberg Carlson might be right for you. It is a solidly built ladder with twice as many bolts as other factory models of the same size.

Yes it is a 7 step, I have been researching that one but need to do some final measurements as I would like to use the original stand-offs. I did find that Lichtsinn RV has the replacement for $154.00 but the shipping is a killer at $200.. I may first try and cut out the top section where the bend is, bend it back and splice it back together.

Could a welding shop fix your ladder in 20-minutes for under $50?

That could be an option. I have only lived in this location a few months and not had a chance to locate many skilled craftsmen yet.

It looks like it would be easy to repair. I would remove the bent section and carefully straighten the bent part.

That bend in the ladder does not look too bad. I had one similar to yours and !) straightened it out by hand or using some kind of bar, 2) cut a slit all the way thru in the vertical tube near the middle of the bend 3) then installed a round piece of aluminum that fits inside the ladder verticals and is long enough to go about 4 inches or so in both directions from the slit 4) secured the inside piece to the outside tube with several non rusting sheet metal screws. This method strengthens the ladder at the slit and will not be seen by almost everyone..

that is the basically the way I was going to fix it but there is another bend at the very top not seen in the photo that is more of a crush than a bend.. I found a Stromberg Carlson ladder that will work at CW. Interesting note about CW, the prices in the store don't always match the online prices, I pointed that out to them and they matched the price and also gave me another discount.
I still am going to try and fix the primary bend just to see if I can.
Thanks to all who responded.

Now that the snow has melted I had some time to work on the ladder, I used the Stromberg Carlson ladder for now and used the existing stand-offs. The Stromberg is about 3/16 " wider than the original but the stand-offs have enough play to allow for that. Now that it fits i will take it off and paint it. I still may revisit fixing the original if I can find some 1 inch tube and a pipe bender.
