I guess she doesn't think much of those that strap their rolling grey water tote to the ladder either.

Things gotta go somewhere.

I'd look at a Little Giant ladder. They are more useful that a standard step ladder and take up less space so you might be able to store it in the bay's.

I snowbird 4 months a year and don't carry a ladder.
I am a friendly (read, talks a lot ) guy so I make friends easy. I have probably borrowed a ladder or 2 when I needed one. Maybe once a winter.
I always say Thank You.

I purchased a collapsible ladder that folds to 4" square. It is a seven ft ladder and stores easily in a bay.

Basically one of these although there a bit taller but store in a very small space.

I carry one of these plus a telescoping ladder. I'm going to remove the telescoping one.

That's what I use. Fits in bay nicely and is heavier built then most step ladders.

The Little Giant are the most stable ladders I have ever owned. You can climb on either side and adjust them to the terrain.

Repeating myself but I took mine to a powder coater. They had some paint that is almost a perfect match to the RV. I drilled out the rivets that hold the plastic parts and removed the operational knobs. I painted the plastic parts with some close matching rattle can color.

The paint is perfect after almost 4 years and it is hardly noticed on the back of the rv.

On my last motorhome I didn't have pass through storage so I used to bungee cord and then zip tie the ladder for additional securing. It keeps it attached and it should deter the average thief that doesn't have a set of pliers.

The one I have is item number 20319 at Camping World. I have a Little Giant Ladder that I use at home and they are great but the one I keep on the Coach takes up much less space

Amen to no ladder strapped to the rear ladder.... I always think of gypsies when I see all kinds of stuff hanging from the rear of a MH.... (Ladders, folding chairs, portable sewage tanks, ice chests). I expect to see Cousin Eddie step out the door and start dumping into the closest sewer opening... Lol....

I bought a 7' folding ladder that is abt 6" X 7' when folded.... Takes up almost zero space in the basement storage...

Aren't all RV'rs a little bit gypsy? LOL I do put my step ladder on the ladder because that is what I saw others do. However, since I put my unit into hibernation I have come to the understanding that long term you could weaken the fasteners and the ladder would be weaken (from driving down the road and the flexing and bouncing) and could break loose. I don't know and I do not want to find out on my own. But anyway when I did this I used a half a dozen bungee cords since I felt pretty good that not all the cords would break at the same time. Happy RV'ing.

Traveling north one Spring, on I-95, I saw a motorhome with a full size washer strapped to the back. Taking the washing machine with you for the Winter would save on laundry costs!!

And then there is this.....both front and rear. Not my photos.
