Ladder Recommendation

Hi Everyone, I want to get my DH a ladder for the trailer to take with on camping trips to clear off leaves from slide, etc. and to access roof when at home.

Any recommendations on a good, light one?

TIA!

Thanks, that one looks great. Found it on Amazon for a few $ less too with Prime shipping.

Anyone else have tried ad true recs?

I have similar model in red. Whenever I get it out at the camp site, the neighbors stop by to check it out or borrow it.

I got this ladder. It is 6 foot. It collapses down to 3.5 inches square and fits into a 4" square bumper.

x3 on the extend ladder works great! and is easy to store.


Only downside I see is a pinch potential when you fold it back up make sure your hands are off to the side. (Don't ask me how I know!)

Thanks for the recommendation. We have a regular 6' and it is too short for my short husband to get onto the roof safely. I see they have a 7' but there is a bit of a price hike. Think I will go with the Xtend model for starters.

Stay away from that ladder.... My dad had his collapse under him, fell onto concrete, shattered his elbow and had to have it replaced. Broke his ankle also. The ladder was faulty from the factory. Still walks with a cane and does not have 100% movement in his arm yet. He was well under the weight limit for the ladder.

That Extend model is only 8.5 ft when extended fully. Make sure it tall enough taking into consideration that you probably will lose the top two or three rungs. They also have other models that extend to 10.5 ft and 12.5 ft.

Thanks. Our TT is 10" high with the A/C. Do you think the 8.5' ladder would be sufficient to get up there safely? I already ordered it but I can still cancel before it ships. Next step up is the 10.5' (which is red) for $30 more. Thinking I should probably switch to that one...
