Ladder for TT

I just bought a new starcraft tt and it doesn't have a roof ladder.
what is a good ladder to buy that will fit easily in the cargo hole. I have found several telescopic poles in the 50/60 dollar range however i wanted to hear from the seasoned vets about which one to purchase.

Ladder to get up ON roof or a ladder tall enough to reach roof????

Check with starcraft mfg. about being ON roof.
May need to use section of plywood to spread weight.

I got the 15' unit for our rig, since it's 13' high. Works great although I do need to get some foam to cover the ladder rails at the roof line.

I think you mean MT-13. But with that said, I too have one of those and it's a great portable 32 pound multi position (13 variations, I believe) ladder and will work very nicely with a travel trailer. I do find it a little short for our 5er and if the local Home Depots had had the MT-17 in stock, would have been the better choice for me.

I'll echo the necessity to make sure the roof will support walking on it as many TT don't. A couple 16" x 48" pieces of 3/8" plywood works to spread the load between rafters
