Starting to think about one of these and found this thread. My highroof Dodge B350 van is 9 feet tall and the ladders I've seen advertised are about 8 feet or 10 tall. Is longer better, or is that too obvious a question? If the 8 footer gets me up far enough to reach the center of the roof and costs considerably less, would I be foolish not to buy a longer ladder?
I have extension ladders at home that I can use here and even plan to build a folding platform (actually a painter's walkboard) to mount on the side of the garage for roof access while at home but am thinking the telescoping ladder would be great for trips. Thanks!
The never beginning project.
