Ladder Type Recommendations

Wondering what fellow Class A owners/enthusiasts have found to be the best ladder type and size for use in washing/cleaning their Class A DP.

I'm not looking for a ladder to carry with us, just a good ladder, possibly a combination ladder to keep in my garage that would provide a safe platform and be the best for using when washing / waxing the coach to include combination ladders (serve as either a ladder or scaffold).

If you have a recommendation, please let me know to include the brand name and model number (if available).

I have a Little Giant Ladder and love it. It can be an 8' step ladder or a 15' extension ladder to reach high up..... Got it at Cosco and came with a step platform I can put on any step.

I also use a Little Giant except for when I am working on the roof then I use a 16' fiberglass extension. The fiberglass won't scratch.

The only complaint I have with the Little Giant is that it is heavy. I have a 8' Werner convertible step ladder that I like a lot. It can be used as a step ladder or extension ladder. And it weighs a lot less than the Little Giant. In fact I like it so much I also have a 6' version of the same ladder. I don't know if Werner still makes it, mine have been around a while and they did cost more than a standard step ladder. But if you can find one check it out.

I got a foldable ladder with my last coach. It stores easy and does everything I need. I believe they are available at camping world or your local RV place. They might be spendy, but they are very handy, light and sturdy.

If you're just looking for something for home use then most anything will do! I have a good wash brush with extension handle and use a standard 6' stepladder!
