I got the ohuhu one from amazon.
It's a true 12.5 feet, so it sticks up about 18 inches above the roof of my 2000.

The 18 inches is just enough to aid climbing and descending without much risk* of kick out at the bottom.

Very compact to store in rv basement, quite light to carry, and seems reliable so far. It was about $100.

*ladders are inherently dangerous. How you move and how you throw your weight around makes a big difference.

FWIW ... Your safety can be improved by dumping the air bags to gain about 3”. And, extend a bedroom slide while positioning the ladder next to it to use as an additional step as well help keeping the ladder from moving. Be careful that the ladder can scrape the paint along the radius.

^^^I keep 2 pieces of pipe insulation to slip over the appropriate part of the ladder to protect the paint.
