Ladders

I have a new Motorhome on order. One of the things I wanted was a ladder. Newmar does not offer an option for a ladder on the model I ordered. I asked the salesman what he used and was told a light collapsible ladder. I would store it in the basement and use it only occasionally. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks,
Mark

We use a telescoping ladder like this one. Reaches the top of the rv with no problems, stows away easily. Click image for larger version

Ladder

Found my telescopic 12'5" ladder on Amazon for $75. Really like it. I saw one on Amazon for $40. that looks just like mine.

I've been looking at telescoping ladders as well. I keep seeing one on harborfreight.com for about $120. Anyone have any experience with that one?

Thank you for your replies. The extend and climb seems perfect. Mark

Just be very careful when extending it and make sure it is locked good. My buddy was going up his when the whole thing collapsed like a house of cards. He wasn't hurt because he is a lot more agile than me and he wasn't all the way up.

It's nice to have a 7' step ladder that you don't have to lean on the coach. I made the vinyl fence post box as well and made end caps out of the post caps.

Mark.....If I were to get one of the new coaches with no ladder, I would be buying two ladders. One like "Xman11" posted so that I could get on the roof if necessary and one of the folding step ladders.

I bought one at camping world that looks like the one in post #4. Don't recall the price, but I would guess it had to be on sale or I would not have bought it. It fits nicely in one of my "obstructed" pass thru compartments. I used it once just to try it out. I was impressed with how sturdy it actually felt. My coach has an installed ladder but I just don't like flexy the feel of those.

I use the Xtend and Climb posted above and it is perfect. Heavy duty (holds up to 250 lbs for 15ft version or 300lbs for 12.5ft version), folds down small and easy to extend and retract.

Weighs 36lbs overall.

X4 - used a 5" fence post like shown above to store it. Nice ladder. Not high enough to get on the roof though (I have a ladder on rear of coach for that). Maybe carry two like Don said.
