ladder?

As we are loading our coach for the first time, I'm thinking I need to bring a ladder. Several reasons come to mind for the possibility to have one handy, but it would take up quite a bit of space. Do any seasoned rv'ers bring ladders?

I just got 7 foot one in the first Ford Idaho linked.
It fit in the space just in front of the sliding tray which was kind of wasted space before.

I have that same ladder --it takes up very little space. I also carry a 5' folding ladder.

I carry an 7 ft step ladder on my rear ladder. It also will extend straight up for a total of 14 ft or so. Comes in handy when I wash the front of the 5er, when allowed, at a camp ground.
