    Telescoping ladder

    Anyone have a ladder similar to this one?

    https://www.amazon.com/WolfWise-Tele.../dp/B01B2OFNHM

    I'm thinking it'll be a good multi-use ladder to keep in the Torque. Kiddos can use to access top bunk, I can use it to clean off top of slide, wash the rig, or access the roof. Just hoping someone else can give me some feedback on it.

    We were on the way back from Suwanee River earlier this month and seen a Bighorn with a bike rack on the back. They had one bike and a 10-foot A-frame type ladder on the rack. Not sure I wanna go that route.

    I had a home inspection and the guy had one to access the roof. Also had a contractor out to deal with some nail pops. In both cases they had this type of ladder and liked them. Don't know if they had name brand or Chinese knock offs but the one longer one that had been used for painting was not as easy to open and close.

    Ours looks about the same, but a different brand and it is ~$12 less.

    I used it a lot last summer and never felt uneasy with the build quality. I NEVER felt like the ladder was going to collapse while using it fully extended. Very well built.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    We have one similar to it. As a matter of fact just got off the roof with using it. We had the new Fantastic fan screen come open, so I had to get up there to secure it, again. Used the collapsible ladder instead of the attached ladder. I got our ladder about a year ago, and have used it several times.
    Pay attention to the weight specs on it, and the rating.

    Thanks for the responses. I believe I'll go ahead and order the one Oregon_Camper shared.

    I have the Extend & Climb version. After a few years it decided that it did not want to retract as easily as it was supposed to. To the point I had to flip it upside down and drive it together. Its sitting in my garage awaiting my verdict on its fate. Now, besides the mounted ladder, I keep a Cosco Folding Extension ladder in the truck while using the rig.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    Mine was getting a little stiff to retract. I put some Blaster Garage Door Lubricant on a towel and wiped it down. I sprayed the plastic locks lightly. Pinched the heck out of my had as it slid down faster then ever. Don't give up on your ladder.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    I found a 12.5' OxGord on eBay for $62 and some change with free shipping and a carry bag. Couldn't pass it up, should be here before our next trip. Thanks for all the responses.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    We have one to. I use it all the time to clean off the slides or getting access to the roof. My older unit was about 2' shorter so I can definitely feel the difference with my new one but still can get up. It does feel pretty secure but I definitely recommend you always have another person helping you while you climb up.
