Lightweight ladder solution

I'd be interested to know if anyone thinks it is a good idea to carry a ladder in your motorhome? If so, I own one of these (below) and the size (19x37) and weight (27 lbs) seems to make it a good candidate. I'd be interested in hearing your opinions on other options.

We carry a Werner 8-foot aluminum step ladder on our coach roof ladder. We use 2 chair carrier brackets and parachute cord to secure the step ladder to the coach roof ladder.

The step ladder is the correct height to clean off the slide room awnings or step onto the coach roof ladder to go on the roof. The step ladder is free-standing and does not need to touch the coach.

I carry the same ladder as you show. Its worked well so far (maybe used 3 times). I removed my stock ladder to allow for more clearance in my barn storage. Have not missed it at all and can use the telescoping ladder for accessing the high spots on the sides and front of the motorhome.

I carry pretty much the same ladder in our 36' DP. It comes in handy as ours does not have a factory ladder installed.

I too have a collapsible. Fits nicely in the basement. I intend to remove the built in one at some point.

I carry a Telesteps 12ES telescoping stepladder, rather than an extension ladder. The 12ES is a stand-alone ladder without having to lean on the RV or the awning. Collapses to 28Ē and stores on ladder chair rack along with spare lawn chairs. I have a spare ladder available, if anyone is interested.

I’m a big guy. I have a Little Giant 17’ basic ladder, holds my height & weight easily. Telescopes from 8’ to 17’ as a straight ladder. It bends in half for a 4’ to 8’ A frame. Stores in my pass thru bay easily bent in half. Has wheels on one leg to drag along behind you. They make small versions too. All up to what you can fit in or on your rig and what weight class ladder fits your size.

Buy heavier than you think, brand name (not cheap stuff), and remember you get what you pay for. Test it out first.

I have a little giant copy from home Depot. Not bad for weight. A ladder is a good tool

[QUOTE=Pol6;6249724]Hello, I carry a 6ft foldable stepladder made by Telestep. itís not made for big guys but does the trick for me. That is the one I carry and I love the darn thing. A big plus is the small amount of room it takes up. With a 35' Monaco, I have only one storage bay. Tough ladder.
