    why do people have a fixed ladder?

    if you have a roof box I can see a reason, but what else would justify one?

    mount sat dish on, dry washing, put flag pole on, looks cool, ..makes it easier to get into the van through the roof light .. :Doh:

    small boy.. up on de roof..in you pop.

    to stop that happening you buy a ladder guard.. more dosh..

    but it keeps Peter in business.

    That's what I use, as there is no fixed ladder I think it is more secure, keep the scallywags off!

    And easier to clean and polish the back...

    I always think a M.H. looks tidier without them cluttering the back up.. :thumb:

    I seem to remember, that you had to buy that extending ladder gadget, thingy, VeryOldMoIceCreamNoInternetMan, when you bought your Damon and it, unusually for an RV, did not have a rear ladder. :Rofl1: :Rofl1:
