Exterior Grab handle removal

Hello, I have a 2007 25fb SE. Has anyone removed grab handle next to door. Need a longer grab bar due to mobility issues. Have removed small behind door but figure it out. Don't want to do too much damage.
Thanks

When I looked at mine, it looked like I would need to remove part of the inner skin to get to the backside of the handle.

Thanks, removed rear panel and access looks good, but can't find type of attachment. Lots of waterproofing material but can't find screw head or nut. not ready to dig out waterproofing but can feel a stud(maybe).
