if you need to lean a ladder on t he coach to get to the roof, buy a swimming pool noddle to use as a buffer so you don't mess up the rubber roof ( if you have a rubber roof) or the sides of the coach

Jayco makes a ladder for toy haulers that mounts on the SIDE of the Trailer. It folds flush when in transit and you pull 4 pins to expand it out to go on top. BUT, buying it from a Jayco dealer will probably be a LOT more than $200. The shipping alone will be at least $100. Doug

I use every bit of my 12 foot collapsable ladder and my TT is only 10’ 1” at the top of the AC. TH should be taller. Don’t skimp on length. Twelve footers are a hundred bucks on Amazon.


Winnebago 2101DS TT & 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, 300 watts solar-parallel & MPPT, Trojan T-125s. TALL pole for flags. Prefer USFS, COE, BLM, NPS, TVA, USF&WS, state & county camps. Bicyclist! 14 year Army vet - 11B40 then 11A - (MOS 1542 & 1560)

I have a convertable Step/Extension ladder which sears USED to sell. it's just exactly long enough to put me on the roof safely.. More in a bit on that.

THey also make Telescoping ladders.. The one I have is too short but it's useful for a ton of other stuff.

The Factory POS .. I reached out with ONE HAND and pulled it off the RV.. ONE HAND.. it is good for about 150 pounds not much more The Sears ladder is rated 250 tested to 500 and works well with my 300.

The safely part.. I'm a former ladder monkey (Worked as a Roofer for 7 years when I was younger and more foolish) and very used to climbing a ladder set up at the proper angle. (Proper angle. Tips of toes to feet of ladder. Reach out arm straight and about level and grab a rung. Heal of hand: too steep. Finger tips: Too shallow: Comfortable Grip: Proper angle)

Climbing a VERTICAL laddre like the Factor POS.. Much scarier Much Much Scarier.

Highest I've ever climbed on a Vertical ladder: 100' (antenna tower)
I'm acrophoboic (Fear of heights) TRUST I did... In my safety gear.


Home is where I park it.

I have one of these. Best purchase I've ever made for the RV after the countertop ice maker.

I decided to go with a GP Logistics SLDD7 7' Compact Folding Ladder:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009IJUL4O/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I like that it takes little space in a pass thru compartment and isn't as heavy as the "little giant" type ladders. I have a Werner version of the Little Giant to the S&B house, but found that it would take up more room, is heavier and more awkward to stow and remove from MH storage compartment. I do have a OEM ladder on the back of our Newmar, so the GP folding ladder isn't my only option for getting on the roof of the motorhome.

I'm debating whether or not to share my ladder situation....
I know this is Claas A and I tow a TT, but..

Oh what the heck!

I carry, at all times, a 3 foot, 4 foot, 6 foot, 8 foot, 10 foot and a 12 foot stepladder. And if I need to get higher I pull down my 24 foot extension ladder! [emoticon]
I sold my 2 - 34 foot extension ladders because I don't want to go up there anymore.

Getting on top of any rig isn't an issue for me. I've loaned my ladders to many a neighbor who needs to get up on top of their RV for something. And many times gone up there myself because they lack the confidence.

(My work vehicle is my tow vehicle and I have a rack to carry all this stuff)

But in answer to your query, I have suggested to many folks to get one of those multi function, multi purpose fold up aluminum ladders. They can be set as a stepladder or a single longer one to lean on something to climb up. They fold up compact enough to stow away in a storage compartment.
