Ladder

What ladder do you carry with you as a full timer with Class A or anything that tall?

I carry this, from Costco, the Little Giant MegaMax 17'

https://www.costco.com/Little-Giant-...100111832.html

Folded up it fits easily in my basement and the wheels make it easy to slide in and out. Very stable as an A-ladder and a 17' extension for accessing the roof.

x2 on the Little Giant. Takes up more space but more versatile.

I'd love to have the Little Giant, but space is limited in our rig. So we have a
Telesteps 600FLD OSHA Compliant 6 ft Double sided folding step ladder (STIK). It folds up to 4" x 4" by 6'. You just need to make sure ALL the locks are set before using. Because it doesn't have a wide base, I put a piece of plywood under it, if I am not on a paved surface.

I am not a full timer, but I also carry an Xtend & Climb 785P, overall a good ladder as long as you are not standing on it too long (the rungs hurt my feet), it I were to plant to stand on it to do lots of roof top work I would get the somewhat more expensive though also slightly heavier contractor series with slanted steps.

I've got one of these, had it for at least 20 years.

They come in various heights. I like it because it folds up so small.

I have a Class C and it's just the right height if I have to reach anything on the outside.

I carry a 13' Cosco multi-fold ladder. When I was shopping around I considered the telescoping ladders, but when I read of some of them collapsing under the weight of some owners that made up my mind.

I carry the Little Giant ladder from Costco. Way cheaper than you’ll pay anywhere else for one as nice.

Not a full timer, but this one works well and takes up very little space:

I have a Wenger multi-fold ladder at home, but find the GP ladder much easier to load and unload from the MH and it's compact size is ideal for our Bay Star which doesn't have the cargo space of a DP.

I'm not a full timer but went with the 7' model of this ladder. Since we have a Bay Star (gas engine), storage space isn't as abundant as a DP, so this ladder really helps save space.

I have a Wenger multi-fold ladder that I contemplated using in the MH, but it takes us a lot of room and where I would need to store it, I'd rather have the space for chairs and folding tables.
