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.


This looks very interesting... will check into this one, would like something a bit higher, maybe 7-8 foot, thanks!

My next choice would be one of these @ $73: https://www.ebay.com/itm/12-5FT-Step-Lad........9?hash=item5913519515:g:FU4AAOSwpTJbru9d

They claim a 330lb load capacity. You'll need some protectors if you lean it against your RV.

I have a six foot Fiberglas Werner step ladder. Store it in a bay under a home made shelf that is just high enough to slide the ladder under. Store other things on top of the shelf which is maybe 5 inches off the floor. That and a short extension I can easily reach the top of the windsheald

I have the 7' GP Logistics ladder:
GP Logistics 7' at Amazon
It has the advantage of taking very little room for storage. It's easy to setup/break down. It works well as a ladder for my motor home i.e. I use it occasionally and don't spend a lot of time standing on it. The treads aren't as big a regular ladders, so it is best used with good shoes. It's fine for use when cleaning windows, waxing the exterior, doing small repairs, etc. It's hard to beat if you want to save storage space.

I can't find that 7-footer ANYWHERE!!! Not offered, or out of stock every place I've checked...

I used the skinny part of an old broken step ladder and two stand off's from an old boat ladder that I attached to the top part of the step ladder section. It is 6 or 7 ft long and 1 1/2 in thick so I am able to store it in one of my pass through storage bays.

Try this link: https://www.campingworld.com/7%27-double-sided-rung-ladder-20319.html

While searching, I found them on Amazon and a couple of other places for over $200 but like you said, most places are out of stock. I also saw where it's claimed that this is the most poplar model of their ladders. It doesn't make sense that's everyone's out of stock.
