I use one on our class a. Use it to lay over fixed ladder at rear. Stores under coach. Look a hell of a lot better than hanging a A frame ladder on fixed ladder. Tacky. You drive a $300k class A with a $30 ladder straped to the back. IMHO.

Yep I have one and am a fan. Works great and easy to store. Use it often. Clean off slides, tilt up solar panels, clean solar panels etc.
much better than the ladder affixed to the rear of the fiver.
MUCH easier to clean off slides.

I get the attraction, good sturdy ladders are not going to fit well in an RV.
But I'm not climbing one of those. DR
I bought the Extend 15.5’ 580P from Amazon in 2017 for $165. It is a great sturdy ladder that when properly extended I trust wholeheartedly and I feel safer than using the OEM attached ladder. Unfortunately, they are priced now at $485. I don’t have the balance I once had so I will not go on the roof unless I really have to. It has worked great though many times for mobile detail and repair people that show up with a funky or no ladder in tow. They use my ladder to safely get on and off the roof. It scares the crap out of me to watch someone try to get on my roof with an 8 or 10’ ladder.

The better ones are ANSI compliant-osha guidelines.

I bought a telescoping foldable ladder that when extended it is 17' and about a 7' step ladder from Amazon, it is little heavier than I would have liked it to have been at about 40 lbs and has that stabilizer that does get in the way when storing but do like the idea of using those quick disconnects in place of the bolts. Doesn't pinch the fingers either...

There are extension ladders, extension ladders with hooks, and step ladders.


I have the 6/7 step ladder for work. I like about 90% of it. I can get up to 10' ceiling pretty easily.



As a step ladder it's nice to not take up all the room, but it is a bit narrower base than a 'normal' step ladder. As long as you don't go wild and have a decent sense of balance, it's great.
