    That same ladder is available on ebay for $69.89, free economy shipping, from multiple US locations. Just search for 12.5FT Aluminium Multi-Purpose Telescopic Ladder Extension Steps Tall EN131

    I got mine from ebay as well.

    I have the green heavy duty extension ladder and it's solid as a rock. A little heavier but just feels better to me. I do remember it costs more than $69.00.

    Mine is the green Type 1A version, rated for 300 lbs. so my weight (170) isnít the reason it got finicky. Iíve sprayed Teflon Silicone lube on and in it. Works a little better but still needs to be forced to fully collapse.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    Iíve had one of those for 7 years. Only used it once. To clean snow off my slide toppers so I could bring the slides in. It was so worth every penny. Easy to store. Youíll never know itís there until you need it.

It does feel pretty secure but I definitely recommend you always have another person helping you while you climb up.
    When accessing the roof, I put the top rung over the fifth wheel's ladder. I have not needed to use it for anything else thus far. I do not use the existing OEM RV ladder for anything else.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    The ladder arrived yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. It seems to be well built and I think will do just what I need. Thanks everyone for all the replies.

    Re: Telescoping ladder

    The ladder is great but please learn from me. The hard plastic ends on the top corners can reek havoc on your decals. Buy a strip of rubber pipe insulation foam tubing an tape the whole top and corners. It will help from tearing decals if it moves a little and will help secure it from sliding when you are on it.
