I was not really happy with the aftermarket ladder which came with the Delica, even it was stainless steel and well done, it was too wide and heavy to accommodate upcoming mods like a tire carrier. Also the bottom bracket didn’t hold up very well due a slight dent in our rear door, so it came off under heavy usage.
Andy (contact) – a fellow Delica owner and very talented fabricator made up a custom aluminum ladder with some strong stainless steel brackets for us. Just 10″ wide with the option to mount it as far to the left as possible. After the ladder was done I sandblasted it at U-Blast and dropped it off at a powder coating place to match the van colour. The final protection layer was done with DuPont A-7480S clear coat.
