dumb question

My airconditioner shroud needs some attention.What's the best way to get to the top of the trailer?
I have ocassionally used a ladder with thick foam padding up the side of my trailer,a very uncomfortable feeling;this doesn't allow me to get close enough to the A/C anyway.
I'm thinking of some kind of scaffolding on each side with overhead in between,a half day's work.
Any better ideas?

Hi bimpy,
There have ben a few threads on this topic. Try the "search" feature and see what shows up. I know you have to stay away from the end caps! One thread I remember shows 2 trucks on either side of the airstream with ladders connecting the trucks over the roof making a scaffold to work from. There are other options, too. Good luck!

Thanks George
I had considered a tractor and loader to use on one side. I'm not a bad driver but I cringe at the thought of easing up close to the trailer with a sharp cornered bucket...one little distraction or accidentally hit the wrong hydraulic lever,ughh!

Here are the pictures of Mr.InsideOut & a friend using the truck scaffolds.
