Gain Access To The Roof Of A Travel Trailer With The Right Ladder
As odd as it might seem, some travel trailers don’t leave the factory with roof access ladders even though a large majority do. Even though some trailer roof tops are not structured to walk on frequently, it is important to have a roof access ladder nevertheless. This is especially so if you want to clean and inspect the roof of your RV or trailer. Even though it is true that you can use a regular A-frame ladder to do this, the disadvantage would be that you have to carry it wherever you go: the best option is therefore to install a roof ladder.
When you are choosing a roof ladder, it is important to take into consideration the height of the trailer from the ground up, you should then use this measurement to get a ladder that fits the height. If you have a small ladder that’s fitted at the back of the trailer, then you should get a ladder that can be fitted from the ground up and hooked with the already fitted small ladder and used to climb up the roof. It is also important to pay close attention to the material used to manufacture the ladder: aluminum is the best and most common material for a roof access ladder.
It is also important to take into consideration the carrying capacity of the ladder, this is especially so if you intend to be carrying some heavy loads on top of your RV or trailer. Apart from considering your weight, you should also take into consideration the weight of the items you are more likely to be carrying up the roof.
