Regular contractors type scaffolding can be usually found on Craigslist.

Can also get the front and rear in one climb each.
It's yellow if that helps and has nice smooth rolling wheels
Sorry I left out the most important part

I purchased my rolling ladder at uline.com before beginning a roof resealing project. I was able to find the perfect size (12 step model) to allow an easy and safe transition on and off the roof top. I used to dread having to get up there, now it's no issue whatsoever. Wasn't cheap, but well worth it.

We were looking for a rolling latter and settled for a rolling scaffold. We use it on a regular bases when washing and hand drying our coach and when waxing. We purchased ours from Northern Tool along witha set of outriggers to keep it steady and safety rails total cost roughy $300. Best investment. Cheaper than a trip to the ER.

Thanks for all your post. You've been very helpful. I think I'm going to settle for the rolling scaffold.

I would have probably bought a rolling scaffold, had I not stumbled across one of these, for cheap: 2005 JLG 1930ES from Coast to Coast

Bought it from a contractor, and it needed repairs, and batteries, which I did myself. It has proven to be very useful, both when working on the motorhome, as well as changing lamps in my ceiling fixtures (16' ceiling), parking area light fixtures, and other work in and outside of the polebarn.

If you have a big enough building that it won't get in your way, you might consider one. They can be had in good working condition from JLG, at times, for 1250-1850.

I use a rolling scaffolding from HD. It folds up and I can store it in the basement. I also have a Werner Multi-ladder that can double as scaffolding by adding in a scaffolding plank.
