Thanks...duh!

I was working on the fridge fans and the top thing would have been useful to put stuff on and to lean against. I will buy one in Quartzite at the RV show.

You are correct.... I did get mine from ATG.... Looked at so many sites i forgot who i got it from.... The free shipping did it for me because one site wanted $40 bucks to ship it.... I had some solar screens custom made by a guy in Houston that came to my campsite, whipped out his supplies and made them on-site.... Having them now called for a ladder so I can snap the top snaps... (Did pick up a useful tip from him - he uses a tack puller from Home Depot to in-snap them... Makes it a "snap" to remove the screens....

Another tip - the box that the ladder was shipped in works great if you zip-tie it up to the raised rails...

Seriously, we have telescoping washing tools a rear ladder for the roof....what does everyone "do" with these step ladders they drag around?
I have all the great telescoping cleaning tools for my windshield, but I still find it easier to clean the windshield from the ladder. We take lots of video's and pictures and
i hate to see the streaks left on a curved windshield left by a squeegee. I have also used it to tighten the CB antenna and clearance lights. (before I went to hardwired LED clearance lights.)

Me too I love this ladder it gets me to where I need to get to and when folded up takes up very little space in the basement

I went with the Little Giant knock off from HD,under $100. I bolted 2 padded storage "L" brackets to the ladder to hang it.

I also added the folding top support (can't call it a "step") and it still fits in the fence post when folded.
Added:
I used long zip ties to hang the fence post from the storage bay framing. Cost of the fence post was about $10 as I remember, but plastic is made from petroleum so they've probably gone up by now.
