A Better Way to Attach the Luton Peak Ladder

We have owned three Winnebagos and ALL of them suffered from poor design in the ladder department to the point of the thing slipping out and of course the user falling. The original clips are made from extremely soft steel, they are far too short, in some models they damage the mattress and it therefore needs a design re-think before someone gets seriously hurt. All models are slightly different. In our case the bed base is not supported enough and therefore it flexes. This usually releases one clip. If both release then you're history! We spotted this excellent idea pictured below, would you believe laying in a cabin on the Princess of Tasmania! Anything to take your mind off getting sea sick! Anyway the design can easily be adapted to suit Winnies.
