attic stairs for 12' ceiling

We have a 12' garage ceiling and 24" oc manufactured attic trusses. The only attic stairs I can find for 12' ceilings are made for a 25" opening, not the 22" one we have. Does anyone know if adding on an extension to the bottom of the ladder would be safe? Maybe use part of an extension ladder with some type of hinge? We really don't want to have a platform in the middle of our garage for the 10' stairs that our builder installed. I understand that we probably should not try to modify the trusses without engineering.
