We have a Factory ladder on the rear of our unit.I find it Very unhandy to unbolt it when needed at the front or sides of the unit! So we have a (11' Telescoping Ladder) it is Rated for (300#) much higher than Factory Ladders or some of the other ladders you see people using! Youroo!!
You're just lazier than the average person tho' + being unhandy at unbolting and the bolts wear out
I carry a telescoping ladder. Breaks down very small and doesn't weigh much. Comes in handy if you have an awning problem or burnt out light bulbs. Sometimes I put my carry out satellite dish on the roof with weights just to get it out of the way.

I have a stepstool that i need to access top bunk in my unit, but its also used to assist in reaching stuff inside, putting on the dome, reaching to wash off/clean off exterior, hang lights, etc. While traveling, its folds and is stored on the bottom bunk.
