My home step-Ladder isn't high enough. My extension ladder is old, long, and rickety. And I'm thinking I need to pack an appropriate sized ladder in the storage bay for all those times when I would need to reach the top of the windshield but which would take up as compact as possible space within the bay.

Lashing to the rear external ladder isn't an option I've discarded yet, but to me, it looks tacky.

I've seen some collapsible, and telescoping options, but have no experience with either type...

What say you? What's your experience?

Thanks!

A extended handle that screws into the squeegee handle.

I use a telescoping ladder too. They aren't lightweight but they don't take up much room and will get you on the roof.


Life is a lot like a baseball pitch. Sometimes you get a fast ball down the middle of the plate and sometimes you get a curve ball in the dirt.

After trying other ladders, I settled on the 7 foot double sided folding ladder. It can be stored in a 5 inch square plastic fence post yet it's nice and sturdy when in use. I tried the single sided 5 and 6 foot models but this 7 footer is the best of them all and I wish I hadn't wasted my money on those others.

Look around good before buy because I've seen pricing from $125 to $200 on them.
