Absolutely Bronco, however the debate is directly related to the sale item stating that the ladders may be illegal, hence making the vehicle less desirable. The law is completely arguable. The National width law is 102" (8.5'). For instance on my load, on a level plane if you drop a plum line down my load would not (other than the kayak wheels) extend past the flares because of the curvature of the van. Laws like these are a matter of interpretation.
I think the ladders are fine and it is an outstanding price on a vehicle that has been well thought out and appears to be well taken care of! I would say compared to other units I have seen here IMOP this price is a steal, just by mileage alone let alone condition, ladders or not.

FWIW, my SMB had drivers and passenger ladders.

It was never an issue.

I’ve not done a thorough investigation but I’m fairly certain 100% of side mirrors stick out past the fenders on 100% of all stock vehicles. Again, this is speculation but I’m confident I’m within a couple percent.

I was just thinking the same thing about my mirrors. In regards to this Awesome Cruiser Top some one will get a great rig when it sells and I wouldn't worry about the ladders at all...

Thanks! LOL, yeah, I worry more about the boat when itís on the road than my van. Itís not a jet, itís a Yamaha 150 outboard. Itís a great boat for the Columbia River and the top helps a lot with our rainy weather as well as the blazing hot sun in summer.

Would love to have the opportunity! We use it here on the Columbia. Folks call it a fishing boat but I donít fish so I call it my AdventureBoat. We like to explore all the nooks and crannies on the rivers. It was the purchase of a lifetime and I smile every time I get in it.

To the OP, good luck with the sale!
