Took ours off!

A ladder is a great place for birds to sit and poop down the back of your coach.

A ladder is a great place to store small branches and leaves as you enter or leave some parks.

A ladder is a great jungle gym device to try to crawl over the rear cap, and even more fun to twist around on your knees to try and find a step to come back down!

A ladder is great if your age 18 and under 200 lbs.!

A 16' ladder either telescoping or folding type is so much easier and safer!!!

Ladders can be problematic for a motorhome manufacturer. They aren't the toughest things around and have a limited capacity, which is generally beyond most owner's "unloaded" weight. Liability becomes a big factor. The rear cap needs to be divided between taillight areas and a wide enough engine access hatch, which leaves little room for a ladder. With the 2016 Entegras the new cap and embedded side awnings leave a rear light bar across the top. This would require a ladder to stretch up and over that bar or else the guy has to be a gymnast to move from the ladder to the roof. I can see why ladders are beginning to go away in the industry. The Little Giant type ladders are handy because they can be used as an extension or stepladder, which is handy for cleaning windshields or similar uses.

Telescoping Ladder Comparisons

Looking for a telescoping ladder for our '17 Aspire 42. Any opinions from those of you who have shopped for or have one of the following is appreciated. Comparing the 'Werner MT-17', 'Extend a Climb', or the 16' 'Telestep' telescoping.

Here are several posts on what others use for ladders. Some buy theirs for easy storage, some buy theirs because it is the best price, some buy for the utility purpose of the ladder and don't mind the extra storage space. It is a personal choice, but here is a lot to choose from. https://www.google.com/search?q=Ente...earch=irv2.com
