Not sure if this has been posted or tackled but one thing we noticed on our NTU pup was no place to place our hands to help steady us getting in or out. DW just had a knee replacement at the VA last year and I have a laundry list of issues so it was a little bit of a worry, especially if we were carrying anything. We bought some grab bars to put on top of the counters but the bunks won't clear so that was out. The other day I was over at Harbor Freight picking up a few things and saw a suction cup based grab bar. The suction cups on this thing are strong, you could probably pop dents out of a car fender with it so we are hopeful this will at least give us a little bit of a handle to use. in case anyone else would like to check into it it's http://www.harborfreight.com/bath-safety-grip-handle-96086.html and if there is any interest i'll gladly update this after we open the pup up on Friday for cleaning/packing/stocking.
