Is that 12' ladder tall enough to get on an Alpine safely? Ive been looking at the 14' which give extra handhold room at the top to safely hold on while getting down. Let me know how it works for you.

I bought the 12' ladder a number of years ago from Home Depot @ 100.00. Som if it can be had at at that price it is a great but. It is more than enough height to get on top of you M/H.

Nick- Get the 14'er. That's what I bought for the very reason you suggest. You're welcome to try mine to see if it suits you.

Nick...
wee have the shorter one.. and I will even use it to get up on the Diplomat. We lean it against the upper rear ladder to get on the roof - and I used it to try and brush this white stuff off of the slides...

Thanks pay2play,

I just finished placing my order. Had wanted to buy on ebay but this is even cheaper including shipping.

Hey,
I saw M.M. and SacsTC's ladder. Pretty nice. I also witnessed first hand how well MonocoMama takes care of it too!. She wiped each rung clean with a rag when she was putting it away while explaining to CheetahGirl and I that she isn't a "clean" freak. Hee Hee, I just had to say it MonocoMama. I'm proud of you though. I just can't stand dirty tools either. Cheers to ya.

Check the Ratings on the ladder. Most of the the Telescoping ladders are only rated for 225lbs. You can get a 14' that has a 300lb rating from Telestep.

Telestep also makes a 1600W model which is rated for 300 lbs and is 12.5 feet tall.
This is the ladder we own...
