We got ours at a Sherwin Williams paint store. I paid a lot less than camping world and it is good quality. I use it to crawl up on the RV and also for a bunk ladder.

The collapsible one has rubber bumpers on the tips. Does yours?

Watch your fingers

I have one and it comes in quite handy. But be aware they there is only one safe way to collapse it down. Do it wrong and you could do horrible things to your fingers.

It's not the steadiest ladder there is.

To those who use this ladder and have no fixed ladder on your coach: how do you keep the ladder in place when you are stepping onto or off of the roof?

I got this one about four years ago for $170 on a dealer close out sale. I use it all the time at home particularly when I'm waxing the coach. It collapses down to make it very easy to store in the coach. It is very sturdy and stable.

I don't remember the brand, but it was a knock off I bought off eBay from an outfit in California. Paid around $150 for a 12 footer. I weigh 250, have used it about a dozen times and it is quite acceptable.

I use the folding type rather than telescoping - for the RV I like to have a ladder that doesn't have to lean on something to be useful. It folds into what is basically a long skinny square tube and takes very little room as long as you have the length (any rig with pass through basement storage).

There are pros and cons to either type, so personal preference wins in the end. Quality-wise, though, the better brands of both types all seem excellent. Sturdy, reliable and durable.

I have both the folding step ladder (6 foot) and the extension ladder (15.5 feet)

The step ladder folds to a about 5"x 4'' and is very handy for windows and low level stuff.

The extension ladder works great for cleaning the awning (water, ice and snow) over the slides outs and for getting on the roof if I have to. It collapses to about 2 feet high and is quite easy and safe to use.

Both are easy to store and take up very little room.

I weigh about 240 lbs and both ladders are steady and able to handle my big butt.
