Mine is 7.5 foot long and can be a straight ladder or a step ladder. When it is folded up it is 4' or 5" square. Slides into the pass thru basement & takes up very little space

X3 on LogansRun 7 ft double sided folding ladder. As mentioned it lays down along the side of my slide out. Easy to get to and takes very little space.
I also have the washing pole mentioned earlier. It will only do a very cursory job as the squeegee will not work on my curved windshield. I need the ladder to do any kind of real job of cleaning the windshield.

I have the 7' folding step ladder and it's great.... I can put my solar screens or most everything else. I then fold it up and store it in my basement (takes up a very small space )

If I could have found one of these at this price when I bought my current ladder, I would have bought this. Amazon for $90, the only ones I could find 4 years ago were well over $200. However I do like my ladder that folds in half & makes a free standing ladder or an extension ladder when opened.

I carry a regular 6' aluminum ladder from Wal Mart, less than $50.

Louisville Ladder Type II 6-foot Aluminum Stepladder, Stepladder with Pail Shelf, Rubber Feet Ladder, 6-foot Stepladder, Aluminum Stepladder

For those who like the telescoping ladders, WM has those, too.

FWIW I would not use a ladder that you have to lean against your RV. I have seen multiple coaches damaged (Paint, clear coat, and even fiberglass dings) from these things. Yes they are handy, small and easy to use but at a risk that I don't think is worth it.

I agree 100% abt the potential for damage to coach with ladder placed against rig.... Plus - I like the stability of four legs on the ground... At my age, I can use all the stability I can get... lol....

Responding first to Triker56's question... I have several reasons for carrying a ladder. First, I'll admit that I am a bit obsessive about the cleanliness of my windshield when I am on the road. I want all of the bug crud off and no squeegee streaks which I just can't do with a long pole. Second, if you've ever had any kind of failure or issue with a slide topper or awning or just need access to the upper parts of your coach it is a lot easier and safer to use a ladder to fix the problem.

CW had a great sale last winter on the GPL 7' ladder mentioned by others above. I was a bit skeptical about stability but to my surprise it is a sturdy and stable ladder. It is also easy to deploy and collapse. I got two heavy duty tool hangers from HD and mounted to the wall inside my storage bay.


Good luck in your search.
