Thank you, my father and I built that ladder using 3/4" heavy wall black pipe, bent the pipe by hand (took both of us and a cheater bar). We used 1 inch pipe for the coupler above the door and the 6 cleats that attach it to the bus. Between getting the 3/4 inch to go inside the 1 inch, getting two pair of ladder legs that matched, and getting all the treads mounted square, it was quite a bit of work. Treads are 1x3 angle, top half is stationary, bottom half is removable so the door still opens.

Backup camera mounted and wired, needs a switch in the panel, works great.

I'm no slouch in the vocabulary department, but all I could think while reading this thread was, "Wow, ooooh, wow, OH wow!"



Stunning sums it up for me.

Nice craftsmanship! --- And it definitely looks sturdier than the typical cheap aluminum RV ladders

Looks great, love the open concept and all the natural wood. I would like to do something similar as far as the ladder goes, might have to go off the side....would like to build a deck up top for watchin' the drag races.

What colour is your bus? On my 'puter some pics look med. blue others look teal/aqua kinda thing.

I just read through this entire build...at work! Love the craftsmanship, you are both truly gifted. I thank you for sharing your vision with all of us. I might not agree with all of your decisions (what the heck is that exterior color) but that's the point isn't it...it's truly your unique design, made to reflect your individuality.
