I have a multi task ladder from Harbor Freight. Compresses to about 4 feet, expands to about 17 feet, and can also be used as a step ladder for cleaning the front windshield. Light and easy to use. Normally about $110 with coupon.

Our coach has a ladder for roof access. We have one of those 7' folding step ladders as well for everything else.

We carry a 10 foot aluminum step ladder. I ratchet strap it to the roof access ladder.

The three times I have needed one I was able to borrow
one from the campground staff. They happily delivered
it right to my site, and picked it up when I was done.
So, no I don't carry one, and never will.

MR D, I also carry the 7' ladder, I lay it over my propane tank but was thinking it would be nice to have a tube to slide it into to keep it clean, when I run the generator it tends to get dirty. Where did you get your fence post cover, looking at the ladder it appears it would take approx. 6" tube? Also did you camp at Columbia Riverfront RV Woodland WA earlier this year, your rig looks familiar.

Arrived today

I just got this 7' collapsable ladder. A few $$ more for a safer ladder.
Now to get the vinyl fence post and organize one of the thru basement compartments.

We also have the https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009IJUL4O..._GvI1zbR5ATKCZ. I was afraid of the telescoping ladder, I could see losing a finger with that one.

I'm stealing the fence post storage idea

I have a ladder on the coach for roof access. I do carry a standard 6 foot aluminum step ladder in the side compartment. It slides in nicely on top of my chairs and mat.

Home Depot or Lowe's has the plastic fence post... and get some end caps
and on ours it can lay across the propane tank, but it's used for a sewer hose, not a ladder

Do you remember what size of fence post you used?

5x5 or 6x6 IIRC

but measure your sewer hose end to make sure it fits your hose...

Thanks guys for all the great suggestions. I'm going to get the GPS folding ladder that can fit in a PVC tube.

As Joe mentioned borrowing a ladder is a possibility and you may even make a new friend, but the last time I needed one we were the only transient camper in a mostly seasonal park and unless the park owner had one to borrow we would have been out of luck. We camp for several months at a time so I see the need for our own.

My roof access ladder is a 2 piece affair with the upper portion permanently attached to the coach and the lower portion stored in the baggage bay. It is difficult to pull out without moving a bunch of stuff so if the GPS ladder will allow me safely to get to the permanently mounted roof access ladder I may leave the lower portion home.

Now if I can just convince myself I can get away without carrying that spare tire and leaving that lower roof access ladder home, I'll free up a bunch of baggage space. Do they make folding spare tires?

Found the best price for the GPL ladder at Home Depot or Lowe's, can't remember which. Better than CW on sale.
