Silly ladder question

OK, you guys are going to find this question ridiculous but my bunks in my new TT did not come with a ladder. I measured and the top bunk is 60" from the floor. Would a 60" ladder with hooks take into account the lean once its leaned up against the bunk or do I need to buy the taller one to account for this lean. I was just about to purchase the 60" one but right at the last minute I thought I'd better ask. Thanks

Buy the longer ladder. Ideally, you'd want a ladder about 64" long. You'll probably end up buying a 66" and trimming it.

The ladder should only rest on the bunks and not hang over one of the sides !
The kids do need a slope to climb in it.
I'd buy a 6 footer !

Put a piece of tape on the floor where you would like the ladder to be. Measure from the tape to the top edge of the bunk.
