skinny folding ladder

Anyone have experience with this 7' step ladder that folds skinny? Seems like a very convenient-to-store step option for folks who need to carry a ladder on the road

I use the 7 ft version. It fits perfectly in the pass through storage. Make sure you get the two sided version shown. It is much more sturdy than the single sided version.

Yep
Bought one. Works great. I'm 250 lbs and spent much of my career on s ladder.
For around the MH and camp this is awesome. Rungs are small. Wouldn't want to spend all day on it but it's been awesome when I needed it.
I also have a telescoping extension ladder . Works great for that too but I leave it at home because it is so heavy.

Have had one for years, store it inside a square, plastic, fence post I got at Home Depot.

I have one and keep it in my pass through storage compartment. Works great and holds me, 255 lbs. It is nice to have to clean up the motorhome on long trips.

I have one and have used it for a few years for front sun shades it works ok but I don't feel real comfortable on it. I am looking at buying this one. A guy had one that I borrowed and it worked nice

I have one. Very useful. Pro's - super compact, it easily fits in the CS pass through bay behind the black tank. Con's - less forgiving than your typical Type 1 ladder for stability if all 4 feet are not on reasonably level and solid ground. For me with a gas coach, there is not much pass through space, so the compatness won and I take the stability factor into account when I use it.

After reading the OP's post I bought a 6' single side from Walmart https://www.walmart.com/ip/Telesteps...-STIK/55128101 and used it camping this past weekend. Worked great for my 3 yr old great grand daughter climbing up/down the overhead bunk at bedtime and I used it to "unsnap" the awning safety webbing I custom made.
Being that I stow the sewer hose in a plastic container in a side compartment, the ladder fits neatly in the rear bumper square tubing.
