Need a Ladder

What brand, type, and size of ladder do you take along in your RV to get to your windows, etc?

I have found the 7 foot ladder from CW just the ladder for us. It is the one with 2 legs so it will fit in the cabinet outside in a 4 inch PVC pipe I cut. I attached to the time frame rail and it just slide right in. I put some rubber stoppers on the end so it can rest to the side of the RV. Never did like the ladders people attach to the ladder on the back of the coach. Cost about 60$ and have had on 2 RV's since 97. Tom 04 Essex

I carry a three step - a tall step stool. I am too old and fat to be on a real ladder. ��

Because my coach has no roof ladder I carry a 12' telescoping ladder for both window washing and climbing onto the roof....(similar to this:
Amazon.com - XtremePower 12 Foot Telescoping Extension Ladder).

I have a Werner 5fter that I put on the rear ladder up too roof, simply because my coach has no real storage in the basements. I suppose I could have it inside untill we get too the CG then put it on the rear ladder. AnyHoo I like this one you posted about, do you remember how much $ it was and what is the weight limit?
Thanks for Posting this picture, Tim

X2... we just got ours at this low price and it is just what I was looking for. when folded, it will fit in our slide out tray inbetween my plastic storage bins along with a broom, extension washing handle, and long awning rod. Opened up, and I can reach the top of the windshield with ease. If I want on top, I just use the ladder on the rear of the coach.

And you need to get to your windows because?

One of those long handle windshield poles will clean them from the ground.

I just have a 4' stepladder. There are rare times that I need something longer but not often. I thought about getting one of the expanding-type ladders but at about 1/4 the cost I went with the 4' !



MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have this ladder in a 10' version and it's great. Very compact.

I use the GPL 7' folding ladder. GPL Folding Ladders SLD-D7 7' Double-Sided Ladder

On my to-do list is to mount a 5"x5" PVC fence post cover (from Home Depot)under the chassis to store the ladder in.

I agree with dsbike I have the mt13 which is a ladder with both sides you can climb.It is very sturdy and is fairly easy to stow away.I paid 110.00 at Lowes in Robertsdale Al.about a year ago.Good Luck
