I am considering buying a telescoping ladder for a few reasons like cleaning, adjusting the awning angle and possibly to tilt solar panels.

Does anyone carry a ladder while traveling? This would be stored in the basement so I'm not looking for advice on how to carry (but feel free to share your storage solutions for others) Looking for advice on types of ladders and what others have found useful for a TC.

I am considering something like this:

Telescoping ladder.

2018 Host Mammoth. 1080 Watts solar. 600 AH usable LFP battery. Magnum 2800 Watt inverter.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited toad.

My Itasca came with a fold up ladder. Very compact and fits in the main pull out bin. Holds 220 lbs with no problem..

I carry a collapsible ladder in the storage compartment under the bed. Not sure why since I used it only once when camping to check roof after a wind storm at Tuttle Creek USFS near Lone Pine, CA. However, the ladder is great.

I have one in my 5er.First I studied the weight rating system and bought This One there really is a weight rating for ladders.

Tips, on mine, I find it works better to put the locks used to collapse the ladder facing away from you. this stops you feet from hitting them.
also they prefer to stay dry.

Been carrying the ladder you are looking at for years. Very happy with it. Takes up little space when laid flat.

The wife got one just like the one in the picture at Walmart a bit cheaper. I use it all the time with the TC to get up high and at home too. Nice ladders. Bit heavy though.

Thanks for the link! Coming from a construction background I am familiar with ladder ratings.

I got a GP Logistics ladder that folds to 3.5 in X 3.5 in. I don't use it much but it doesn't take up any space.
