Missing what you are looking for... Are you looking for a mountable ladder that is perm attached?


4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.

If you want a stepladder, seriously consider the Telesteps 12S. It gives you the equivalent of an 8' stepladder or a 12' straight ladder. Measures 31" x 8 3/4" x 24" folded. They are a bit pricey but are a sturdy 300 lb rating and are a lot cheaper than a broken leg!

pWe purchased a 6' ladder from Home Depot. This seems to be best for us.
We strap the ladder to the rv ladder using bungee cords. Have never had
a problem.

As I tip the scales a bit over 300 pounds. I pulled the original ladder off the RV without even trying (I mean it pulled off about the 3rd time I went up it to the point where I was seriouslly scared)

So I replaced it with a couple of very heavy duty hooks near the roof line (Quarter inch aluminum diamond plate. This is Heavy Duty Pick Up bumper material)

A stainless steel "Grab bar" (Plumbing isle) at the bottom and some bungee cords and a bicycle cable lock to encourage it to "hang around"

The ladder that hands on these hooks is a convertable step/extension, Fully extended it's a standard roof ladder, and what's nice about it is it is "Slanted" like a standard ladder (I spent 7 wears as a ladder monkey doing roofing) In the other mode it is a step ladder, at 6'3 I can reach up onto the edge of the roof without over stepping the ladder so it's great for wash and wax.

I would like one about 2 foot longer though for most folks.

But not only is it easier to get on/off at the roof, (And ground) it is easier to climb, and it holds my 300+ like nobody's business (250 rating I believe, 500 test)


Home is where I park it.

I think the OP wants something like the Little Giant ladder. They are a quality ladder and will cost you around $250.

I have been using this folding ladder for 11 years and have had no problems. I was surprised that my MH had no ladder and was later glad it didn't.

TeleSteps 12S 8-1/2 foot 12S Combi Ladder "TYPE 1A" 300 Lbs Rating $189.00
Found it on sale at toolup.com
This ladder will fit in the compartment to the left of the entry door on a 37C. I really like that it can be used as a step ladder or an extension ladder.
