    Anyone use a telescopic ladder with some padding to help you get up to clean the motorhome?

    If so which ones do you think are best...no ladder on my MH which is fine by me .but perhaps a useful thing to carry too ?

    thanks

    Im sure there will be favourites But when I scoured the planet looking at them they all looked much of a muchness from £170 at shows to £60 @ Frith (local Warehouse)
    I bought the cheepo version works ok for me :thumb:

    I bought a set at a show. I got it "cheap" (£80) because there was a slight fault.

    The thing is my ladder has a system of hinged stops which protect your fingers and thumbs when you are "collapsing" the ladder to pack it away... I am pleased I have this feature as, without it, I would have had my thumbs squashed several times... I believe cheaper ladders don't have this feature.

    I have used mine several times for a variety of jobs and panel washing...

    Maplin have them
    http://www.maplin.co.uk/search?criteria=ladder

    I bought them after looking around at the dearer ones, how often will you use them was the main question, so at £60 seemed a bargain and take care not to trap your fingers :Rofl1:

    I looked into these mate, the going rate is £59.99, even maplins have them, unless you want a bit more from a ladder, then add cash to get more benefits:BigGrin:. Using a pipe lagging foam thingy as a rest whenever you need to get on the roof, keeps the total to ab out £62.00:BigGrin:

    just bought one of these at Aldi, not a teleladder but good enough for home and to throw in the RV locker.

    Saw the telescopic ones in our local JTF warehouse the other day,almost sure they were 39.99 plus the vat,worth a phone call if you have one nearby.
