We use a collapse-able one like the above poster, have had it now for 8 years with no problems. We had a "bag" for it but it finally gave out now we just keep it covered with a heavy duty leaf bag. It fits between the mounted ladder and the rear of the 5'er. Good Luck, and Happy Camping !!

I use a collapsible extension and a folding A frame. A frame rides in the 5” sewer hose storage (fits perfectly) and collapsed rides in front bulkhead storage. The little giant sound do the job of both but does not fold up enough for me. The collapsable does break down to an A frame however.

This is what we have and we love it.


I have one of these also. Just watch you clean and lubracat them every once and a while or they get sticky.

This is the one I like. It has a much high weight rating(330 lbs) than some of them. Some are only rated at 225 lbs. and I exceed that even if I am not carrying anything.

Above 7' double sided, foldable step is what I use also. It is a sturdy, easy to use ladder, that takes up little space. I often stand on top rungs, one foot on each side, with no issue of balance/unsteady feel.

I still have a 14'telescoping extend a ladder, but never liked it for RV use.

I bought a relatively cheap 10.5 foot telescoping ladder to use as an escape ladder, and use it often for work on the trailer roof. My experience with the telescoping ladders has been very positive, and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.

I have a 10.5 Ft collapsible ladder for our 5th wheel. I would recommend the 12.5 ft or taller.
