GREAT Ladder

About 3 years ago, I purchased a folding ladder from Camping World and it was a great investment. The ladder is 7' tall and when folded it is about 4 square inches. I have not seen it anyplace else but might be available at some other retail or on-line site. A little pricey but for me--worth every penny.
It fits very easily in my storeage bay. Takes about one minute to set up or take down. I am 6" tall and with this can reach just about anything. Also weight about 250 and supports me just fine.
Hers's the link if interested: 7' Double-Sided Rung Ladder - GP Logistics SLD-D7 - Ladders - Camping World
Hope that helps.

We also have the 7' compact folding ladder. Fits in our basement. Lightweight and easy to use.

Always good to carry a step ladder. I use mine all the time with my pop up. Camping without one would not be the same.

Storage box for sewer hose?

I documented my install as well but it was a couple of years ago.

5x5 8 foot long vinyl fence post covers with caps.
I used 4 inch symmetrical gutters for the drawers.

I will try to find my thread.

For those that don't know Camping world and probably others on line carry a 6 ft foldable ladder that collapses down to 3x3 inches... for a camper and limited storage issues its pretty nice. Remember that old saying you don't need it till you need it.

collapsible ladder

I have a ladder from Home Depot that I carry in the basement of my Berkshire 390rb. This ladder will extend to 10 feet but collapses to just over 4 feet stores flat. It extends and retracts very quickly and is very sturdy...
