Has anyone mounted a ladder to a Via?

When we were looking at new rigs the salesman told me there was not backing in the rear wall for a ladder. So if one was designed to be supported solely on the bumper and roof you could. In boats we add blocks and glass them in where we need to mount something. I'm not sure if you have access to do that or if the back material is thick enough to support such added backing. So go off the bumper.

There is metal under the rear (bumper) or use the hitch for support. A good fabricator can make it happen.

I am still looking for anyone who has attempted to mount a ladder to a Via or its Itasca counterpart.

I was also told at the factory my 2010 could not support a ladder

Ladder on a Via?

Yes, there simply is not sufficient support for a rear ladder. I went on Amazon and found a 12.5' telescoping ladder that fits in the larger storage bay. It works so well I keep it at home when not out with the RV.
