I do really like the Aluminess side ladder, but couldn't get over that it's always there for anyone to climb up. I dislike the rear door ladders, so I've been using an open rear door to hop up onto the roof. This last trip that got really old so I started thinking or lots of different options, from fold-up ladder that's stored on the roof to pockets in the door etc etc. During my searching I came across a neat foldup ladder that looks to be the ticket. So I figured I'd try it. Extend and Climb 750P. Not the nicest solution by far, and it's dam ugly, but it works, folds up small enough to store inside the van so it's not out all the time.
Not quite sure how or where I'm going to store it yet, but it's so small it'll be easy to find a place.
