Mike..how do you brace that ladder when you go to exit off the roof?

I'd always be paranoid that baby was going to fold up/collapse while I was on it. Bad things happen to me....

The trend now is for RV manufacturers to not provide ladders. I just ordered a new Winnebago DP and a ladder is not even an option--they will not put one on. I heard this is because of law suits against RV manufacturers where people fell off, and blamed a faulty ladder.

I have a ladder on my rig but I don't use it. I use one of the telescoping ladders instead.I've actually considered removing the o.e. ladder and filling the holes.

That sounds like a Scatterbrain idea to me.....

I like the looks of the no-ladder, but have the 2/3 ladder on mine with the extra 1/3 that can hang on the bottom of the top 2/3. I don't bother with carrying the add-on. I have the telescoping ladder if needed and otherwise can pull myself up/climb up. There's always a reason to go on the roof!
