ladders and ladders and more ladders!
My trailer did not come with a roof ladder and while I have very little reason to get up on the roof, I don't have any way to do it at all, short of borrowing/renting/purchasing an appropriate ladder.
I see "universal" RV ladders are available for ~$80-$150. More or less the standard RV ladder, it would need to be installed, meaning the appropriate mounting points need to be identified and then use of screws and sealant and...a ladder. All equal time and money, but once up, it's always there, stuff can be hung or strapped to it for storage and transportation and I can run up to look at the roof whenever I want to.
One other option is one of the collapsible ladders sold by the big box stores, camping world, etc. for $120-$180. These ladders extend to 12.5' and collapse down to a smallish package and seem like a nice option. No mounting needed, useable in a variety of places and easy to store. I see versions with plastic joints and some with metal joints....
I'd like any comments on these two options and any experience with the different collapsible ladders available, plastic vs., metal parts...
