At Tillicum it was in the upper 60's during the day and lower 50's at night. Perfect for walking! Don't know about the sea though.
Now we're at Lassen Volcanic Park staying at the Manzanita Camp Ground, the rest are closed already. Several Airstream trailers there.

Nice picture! Looks good and shiny.

I see you added cargo carrier and ladder. Did you relocate antenna? And be careful with clearance, your probably nearing min 10-11'.

No way can I compete with NotStock's technical skills, but here are a couple of pics of our AI with tasteful scenery from our recent trip around the west:
The first is of Mount Hood, OR, the second from Lake Helen in the Lassen Volcanic Park, CA.

Nice pic! I like the way it looks with the cargo box and ladder! Hows the rear ladder hold up to weight and does that cargo box open from the back?

So far so good when I bought it I didn't notice it was the only interstate with a ladder and that they didn't come that way. The box opens from the rear and gives a good spot for stuff I need but don't need everyday

How much ladder clearance is there with the door latched full open on the magnets?

Never checked I haven't had a reason to open the doors that far I'll take a look at it over the next couple of days....... I know the doors don't clear the Yakima rack I had on my truck that I put on for this trip though hahaha

We are doing Alaska next summer and are discussing the options for more storage. We talked about trailer and hitch mounted pod, but had not considered roof mounted, because we did not have the ladder. We are very interested in your experience.

I wasn't going to pipe up here unless someone threw bait into the water, but there it is (sorry for the mixed metaphors).

I researched mounted ladders some time ago, and to make a long story short, the suggestion on the internet was that the ones that affix to sheet metal (rear door or side) are not necessarily good ideas. The Sprinter body just wasn't designed to take that kind of weight, and there were suggestions in the forum universe that the rear door sheet metal in particular can deform if subjected to those kinds of stresses.

I decided not to risk it. For roof access, we bought a Telesteps ladder which we keep inside our Interstate, rather than installing a ladder. We also went with a hitch carrier rather than formulating a plan to store anything on the roof (not that our solar system affords us much extra space up there anyway).

Now, Aluminess makes this Sprinter ladder which attaches to the gutter rather than to the sheet metal, and if I had an NCV3, I probably would not hesitate to use their product. I've seen some combo installations of theirs (ladder plus roof assembly) in which it appears that they might attach at least some of their ladders under the chassis as well, to help bear the weight. Also much better, IMO, than trying to anchor a ladder in sheet metal.

FWIW. I call Aluminess products "jewelry for Sprinters". Some of their installations are just beautiful, and of course the quality is reflected in their prices.
