    We have a low platform at present & manage to clean the roof with extending brush & us standing on our wall next to the motorhome but a bit precarious :( Does anyone know of any high platforms on the market - need to be over 1.2m if possible.

    If you were closer you could have borrowed ours but Scottish Borders to Somerset is a bit too far. You do see them for sale in the local press though and they are available for hire.

    Storage is a bit of an issue for a tower & we probably wouldn't bother taking time to assemble it & just stand on the wall as we tend to go for the easy (if a bit dangerous) option! Have seen the platform ladders from BPS at shows & online but only go up to 1.2m platform height so wondered if anything else out there similiar but a bit higher.

    Thank you Puddleduck - very kind but definitely too far!

    Hi. I saw a folding platform / ladder in costco yesterday it was high up on a shelf so I couldnt have a gander, but it looked ok for cleaning the van It was about £50 or thereabouts(y)

    Looks like a good idea.

    Thank you Puddleduck - don't worry the wall isn't too hazardous just looking for a safer long term option as we aren't getting any younger:(

    People on walls reaching over to do things give me the heebies. My Dad fell and did some serious damage doing that. He survived but didn't walk away.... :(

    You should find what you need here: http://www.laddersandscaffoldtowers.co.uk/acatalog/Clearance-Bargains.html
    I have their 7m tower as I wanted to paint the outside of the house as well as cleaning the van roof, it is light and simple to erect, takes little room to store, recommended but, make sure they have what you are about to order in stock!

    You are welcome to use mine if you are passing through Argyll!
