If you have a toy hauler, you need a ladder just to reach the top of the cupboards!

I'm a big boy and really don't trust the factory ladders, plus I'm not walking on my roof! If I didn't carry one I'd surely need it.

You're just lazier than the average person tho' + being unhandy at unbolting and the bolts wear out

I use a telescoping ladder they are only about 2 foot long when collapsed so they store easily. I use mine on the motorhome and and home. There are many types on Amazon.

We have a 4 ft step ladder that we keep under the bed. Other than that we get on the roof and handle anything higher.

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.

Yep, this is one of those "when you need it, you really REALLY need it" RV accessories.


This is the one we have:
GP Logistics SLDD6 6' Compact Folding Ladder - Rv Ladders - Amazon.com


Fits in the 4x4 Bumper, so it's not dangling off the ladder in the back

ladder stepstool

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.
