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!


Yup, that's the one I found on Amazon for $172, the 7-footer... I'm pleased... most other places was $200-$250, if they weren't out of stock... thinking about the top cover, too... $27

I tried one of those telescoping ladders and it was both heavy and a pain in the ass to use, a real finger pincher. I gave it away and bought a 17 foot Little Giant. It easier to use and works as both a straight ladder and step ladder.

The specific reason I wanted it was to be able to more easily clean my windshield. I don’t need it to get on top the RV, as I have a ladder in the rear I can use for that purpose. Besides my goal was to have something as compact and easily storable as possible, and I think this ladder will accomplish that. It’s not like I’m going to be pulling it in and out all the time…r

Based on that, check out the GP logistics due to how compact it is for storage, and will work for what you want to do.

I bought an Xtend & Climb Ladder in 2004 for use with my first Class A. Truth is, I use it at home a LOT more than with the RV.

12.5' of ladder folds up to 2.5', and only weighs 25lbs. You can extend only as much as you need.

There are many brands of these now, but I can only give feedback on the brand I have, which is made from aircraft grade aluminum. Even though it's 15 years old, and has been used a lot, it still works perfectly.

I use the Little Giant but I have a pass through in one of my bays so I can slide it in there sideways.
