Does anyone have any idea how much weight they're rated for? I couldn't see them holding too much but was wondering if there is actually a weight rating.

Mine holds me.

I won't say how much I weigh, lets just say I'm a big guy.

Just a thought as I figured I would offer the "obvious" disclaimer...

Those ladders are meant for "occassional" use and certainly aren't meant for carrying loads up or down...

It goes without saying that when the satellite internet guys did my install on my previous Vectra, they used their OWN ladders...

When they did the Essex install they had no choice....here's why!!

I too am a big guy. So in 2000 when I ordered a new travel trailer, I chose to delete the ladder and roof rack. The ladder did not have a weight rating, but the roof rack did--200#.

Then I owned a motor home from 2001-2004 and never climbed the ladder, although a couple of friends did use the ladder to check the roof seals and service the A/C.

Now we're gettin somewhere! I would have to guess the ladders not really good for much more which leaves me out as well.

Hi powerboatr! I just now read your signature through. Shows how in-attentive I am. I never did claim to be the sharpest tack in the drawer. "23860 Combined Rolling Tonnage".
