The VTS Roof Access Ladder is similar to the factory Mercedes PUR 30 ladder but attaches to the roof gutter and not to a specific roof rack. This allows you to use any rack or none at all with this ladder. The ladder provides a safer access to the roof of the vehicle to access the roof rack or roof mounted tents. This ladder is designed with a center bar to add to the rigidity and to protect the paint on your truck from being scratched from shoe tips while ascending the ladder.
The lower ladder mount is fastened directly to the vehicle frame next to the OE bumper bracket. At the top the ladder clamps to the roof gutter without the need to drill any holes.
Fits all LWB & SWB W460/461 & W463 Gwagen models with a single rear door, please select correct button for your year/model. There are small differences between models.

I just installed this ladder on our 2014 g wagon. Its a well built sturdy unit. The toe bar does a better job of keeping you from kicking the back of the vehicle than I thought it would. All the mounts are very sturdy and secure. Getting the bottom attachment in place and lined up was not a problem but definitely take your time. I did install additional washers between the bumper bracket and ladder support to get the lower frame of the ladder a little more centered on the tail light. There isn't much room between the door and the tail light so here again patience pays off.
