That’s my van in the picture with the “sweet setup”. I have held off posting pictures because VC is finishing up the final bracket, it goes in the mail to me tomorrow and I wil finish things up upon receipt and post final pictures.
Mounting the HighLift next to the ladder works out really well, keeping it both out of the way and accessible.
Yes, the first step of the ladder is close to the side of the van, but it is not an issue. The VC ladder rungs are flat and much easier on the foot than a round rung, this from someone who works in a refinery and has climbeded a LOT of round rung ladders over the years. I am VERY happy with the VC ladder and with the fact that installation requires no attachment penetrations on the roof of the van. It is a well thought-out addition.
