Telescoping ladder - Werner 11 footer

Santa brought an 11-foot Werner telescoping ladder to replace a flimsy three-step ladder. I like how it converts from a stepladder to an extension ladder to a workbench or scaffold. It weighs 27 lbs vice 10 lbs for the one it replaces. I think this Werner may be what the doctor ordered but I’ll let you know how it works out during the 2011 camping season. Best wishes, John

Cool! Hope to camp near you soon. Do they make a ladder sticker like one I recently saw on a pickup?
Yes, this is my truck,
NO, I won't help you move!
Used to have a Ford cargo van -- I know how that is!

I have the 22' version of the Werner ladder and it is AWESOME !!! So safe up on it and it is rated to 300#s so having a spare tire around my middle doesn't present a problem for it.

I have a few of these from my general contractor days. They are heavy, but they are also the multi-tool of ladders. The nice thing is they fold down really small. I have complete confidence in their strength and durability. Mine were used on many larger roofing and siding jobs and all are in great condition.

Mike: Home Depot, I think, and about $100. The Little Giant is about the same weight and has some upgrades, such as welding instead of rivets. But it's twice as pricey. Best wishes, John

I bought a larger version of this ladder at Costco several years ago. Very sturdy, stable and well-built. However, this thing is H-E-A-V-Y. I could handle the regular telescoping ladder it replaced, by myself. I can manhandle the new one alone, but it's a chore and much easier with a helper.

The smaller one pictured in the original post looks like it would fit the bill for occasional portable use when camping. We also have a small step ladder, but it is useless if you need to get on top of the Airstream for any reason.

Great suggestion. I'll check these out at home depot...

I have the 12 1/2 foot version of the Telesteps. It does not have different configurations, but it does a good job of going straight up. It weighs 22 Lbs

I like the idea of having a portable ladder when I go on trips. I'm going to get one.

It is a very handy thing to have. With the Airstream, I feel a greater need as my previous RVs all had a ladder on the back to access the roof area.

I leave mine in the back of the truck a lot even when not traveling. So far keeping it there has prevented a situation from occurring where I would need a ladder. It is a lot like the anti-vampire garlic that I wear around my neck.

I'm another Telestep owner. Without it, it's tuff to work on the AS on the road. Don't forget to place some cushioning between the ladder and AS if you're leaning it against it.
