European RV ladder

We just returned from 2 weeks in Iceland. Fabulous trip and country. We rented a car and stayed in B&Bís. One of them had a neat class A motorhome. She allowed us to see it and I thought the ladder was unique and the doors on both sides of the front cab area. Sorry the pics are sideways, I donít know how to turn them. On my iPad they are fine just showed up this way on this post.

Pretty good idea, but does that mean you still fall but only the handles come down on your head?

Very nice. Looks like a high quality rig. I will say that the hand rails on the ladder should extend on up and onto the roof to give the person climbing up something to hold onto until they get clear of the edge.

Yup, and also a better mounting point with the pressure pushing down on the roof rather than pulling away from the end of the RV.

Actually I agree with above comments. I do not think it is a better idea, I prefer our style, I posted it only to show a different idea. I did like the doors in the cab area, and the inside was different and had a few good ideas, some not so good for us.

BTW, camping in Iceland with an RV is not like over here. No individual pads or hookups, just an open field and some cg’s have power points on the main bldg you can hook a long cord to. Some also have water and dump stations, but some do not. Much more like boondocking than camping as we know it costs vary but are in the $20-35 range per night.

RV rentals are very common and not expensive at all, unlike USA. Maybe 50-75 a day for a small van, many Sprinter vans available and nicely equipped.

That ladder would not meet minimum standards in the U.S.A.

I suspect in Europe, rentals are more common because space to store an RV is at a premium.

The Europeans are used to tight spaces as opposed to us ugly Americans. Some of our RVs would probably constitute luxury living compared to some of the sticks & bricks housing I remember when I was there in the 90s and in 2003. Probably have more square footage in my TT than some of their apartments. (Look at IKEA for their styling.)

And I remember several hotels without AC when I was there in the early 90s, it was extremely hot, high temps in the 90s with no AC.
