That is the best thing I ever saw. At $100 it is a bit pricy.

Yes it is but I've had it for 8 years now and it's paid for itself over and over.

I'm kinda half way being sarcastic, and half way not...but how does a ladder pay for itself (considering there is one attached to the trailer already)? In other words, what do you use it for?

I guess I shouldn't assume that all trailers have built in ladders.

My current trailer SC 226RBDS does not allow a ladder to be installed. On all my previous trailers it allowed me to clean off the leaves and branches from the slide outs, clean the windows outside, get the bugs off the front cap. Make adjustments to the awning, and other repairs and maintenance when I wanted to. I guess it didn't make me any money but for me it was well worth it. So far on average it cost me $10.00 per year.

That makes perfect sense. Between our RV having a built in ladder and the fact that we are not full time and park it here at our house, it was a struggle for me to see the need.


And now back to our show!

I went with a 5x5 fence post for sewer hose storage. It allows several layers of gutter and the fittings to all fit inside. I put our sewer flush hose's (10' & 15') and a fire poker in the rear bumper.

Thanks for all of the input guys. So, do you just use super long u-bolts to attach to the cross members? And these square metal posts, where are you guys getting these? Do the big box stores carry them?

1/4 inch threaded stock, big box or just a local hardware store should have it.

You may need to heat the stock some so it will bend easy so be careful so as to not get burnt.
