Rear ladder quick disconnect

With my DP as with most you have a sectional rear ladder that hooks on the top and nothing on bottom. I am trying to figure out a bracket to hold the bottom of ladder while in transit. Has anyone made any mouse traps that holds it down ??

When traveling I always carry a 6' aluminum ladder (in the basement) and leave the bottom of the OEM ladder at home. That way I can get on the roof and still have a ladder I can use around the coach...to get to awnings, windshield wipers, windows, mirrors, etc.

You can also go to a hardware store and buy the spring clips for holding brooms, hoes, etc. I used four of these attached to a bay ceiling in my Itasca to store the extension. It kept it up out of the way, not taking up any storage space. Our current rig has a full length ladder, so I'm not having to store an extension.

I bought some parts and made nice factory looking standoffs. Just like there may be midway down your upper part of the ladder. Instead of using permanent screws to hold the lower part onto the actual ladder I used a threaded bolt with the head cut off and a couple of plastic wing nuts.

The standoffs are permanently mounted to the rv, the ladder is held in place with the wing nuts. I don't think I have any pictures but will look

I use 2 spongee cords to hold the bottom of the extension. The ladder extention is in the way of checking my diesel fluids so it has to come off, and does easily with spongees.
Full Timers.
