Do you carry a ladder

New guy here w/a virgin 323lkts. Bought a 3 step ladder to access eng compartment on the 250 and enable my shorty wife access to upper reaches inside the rv. Will I need anything larger? Cleaning the awning, waxing, etc.. The rv has a ladder access to roof but the less I traffic the roof the less it's integrity will be challenged or is this overthinking? I guess once I finally get out there I'll figure it out for myself. In the meantime I'd be interested in learning what you all do. Thanks, rick

I do carry a 8 foot step ladder on all trips, primarily to clear off the slide-out roof and awning with a battery powered leaf blower before leaving campsite. I do have a walkable roof, but I would rather not be on the roof if possible unless it is absolutely necessary. You may want to consider a high quality 10 ft. ladder for your unit.

Congratulations on your new unit and welcome to the forum!

I recently picked up a 10' telescoping ladder. I want to be able to repair a broken/balky awning, slide topper, or slide motor. I'm overly anal about being able to repair items to get me back on the road should the need be.

Washing and waxing are done using a really beefy step ladder.

I don't carry a ladder. There is a ladder on the back of my fiver which suits my needs when on the road. At home I have plenty of ladders. I do see lots of ladders on the back of others RVs.

Nope. On the very rare occasions when I need to get on the roof, I use the ladder mounted on the rear of the Greyhawk.

My vertically-challenged DW does have a folding step stool inside for accessing the upper cabinets.

We carry a small folding 4' step ladder.. Use it almost every trip for hanging lights out side, laundry line, putting the digital tv antenna up. etc. etc.. Our TT doesn't have an attached one...

three step for the upper bunk in the BH. I use it outside to keep the windows clean wipe the nose cap with spray & shine etc. I can reach to the roof line with it and roof with the built in ladder.

We carry a 3 step Werner ladder. Mainly for sweeping the top of the slides (no toppers)
