I just bought the Exacme Portable 12.5' Aluminum Telescoping Extension Ladder for 109. on Amazon. Couldn't be happier. Used it on last 2 trips and it's just right. Plenty tall and strong.

We have this one as well. Slides perfectly across the front part of the basement. I love this thing. One of the best things we've bought over the years. Pricey, but worth it.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Do you happen to know what the riser height is on your steps?

Right now the lite has three steps and we have been thinking about installing a four step.

Bottom step #1 to step #2 is 7"
Step #2 to step #3 is 7"
Step #3 to step #4 is 8"
Step #4 into camper is 8 1/2"

I replaced my 3 step with the 4 you see.
If you have bad knees like me you'll be very happy you put the 4 step on.
