Best folding RV utility ladder ???

Need to purchase a general purpose utility ladder for taking along on the road. Storage compartments are to small to store one. Will probably have to store on roof access ladder. Need one that will allow me to go up to 12' to perform chores and cleaning. Would like one that folds up fairly compact. Looked at CW and decided what they have are more than I would like to pay.(I'm cheep ok). Was wondering if other members have suggestions or can comment on what they use and fits the bill.

Thanks in advance - Tom

The best is Little Giant, no comparison. It's also the most expensive, so it's up to you as to whether or not you want to stand on a cheap ladder or a strong one.

I carry the Extend a Step referenced and 4' folding ladder. The little giant, as I recall, is heavy.

First you need to determine if you want a straight wall ladder, or a step ladder, or a combination Step\straight wall\scaffold ladder

We opted for the one that could be different configurations - plus I cut up some 3/8 plywood I had in the garage, and notched two pieces to fit around the hinges to use as a table when I put the ladder in the scaffolding position - end up with a ~2X6 table ~3 feet high. Is the ladder something I want to work off every day? no way - but to fix this, or attach that on the RV when on the road - or put the lights on the awning when it is extended it works great - DW can always help stabilize it when I'm on it if needed. It is light and fits in a relatively small space and was not expensive.

Have had the aluminum telescoping ladder in our last three coaches and would never leave without it.

This is the same ladder I have been using for a couple of years. I have replaced 3 different folding ladders with this.

I also use a werner ladder but have the 22 ft model. Can configure into various height step ladders and various height extension ladders talk enough to reach any part of my motorhome.

Fantastic

Thanks everyone for all your replies thus far. It sounds like the majority of you have gone with a multi purpose unit. Thanks for the links also.Just currious what is the prefer'd method of keeping them attached to your outside roof ladder during transport.

It goes in the basement. Lots of room between the rungs to pack other stuff.
