I bought a 15.5' Xtend & Climb ladder from Home Depot, wasn't cheap at about $250 but it'll take at least 250#'s and is long enough to get to the top of our 13' high rig
Mr D, how do you prevent denting the coach when leaning the extension ladder against it? I've been afraid to do so after seeing how easily a tree branch could crease the thin aluminum at the top edges of our coach.

The hardest part for me is the top of the front cap. If you get a tall 12' ladder you have to really stretch to get all of the top or get on the roof to do it.

Manufactures build what they think consumers want and its not all about seniors. People demand more storage and the feel of spaciousness. The three classes of motor homes gives you plenty of choices.

A little more effort to reach the top curve, but I think it's well worth it to have the higher ceilings. My first RV was just less than 6 ft from floor to ceiling, and bare footed I'm just over 6' 1. Only place I could stand upright was under the ventTook me a long time to get used to it
