Hi Jon! It was great meeting you at Niagra. I especially appreciate the ladder demo you so graciously presented. Unfortunately, I tried to post it on the thread but was unsuccessful.

I will probably buy the 6' version for the 21' we are getting, but I forgot to ask you how you mounted the 5" plastic fence post to the frame?
I had already added a couple of 2"X2" wood stringers in order to mount the 5" fence post I used to replace the original tube provided by Escape for the sewer hose, so I just lag bolted to it.

Ladder Update?

Here is an older post about folding ladders. I am interested in an update on which ladder people bought, how they like it and how they carry it.

We bought a Telesteps 6 foot single sided folding ladder.
It's folds down nicely is OSHA compliant and fit in a vinyl fence post.
I wouldn't want it as the main ladder at the house but for occasional use it is fine. If you look at the comments in the reviews on Amazon several people said it was shaky. Yes if you get on it and weave back and forth it will move but I never was into dancing on a ladder so this works fine for me.

We have the same ladder. Have learned to take the Amazon reviews with a bit of a grain of salt lately. They used to be more reliable.

We are happy with the Telesteps. Whenever it comes to a transportable compact ladder, you are going to have to compromise somewhere. Yes, it isn't as solid as my A frame ladder I use at home, but that one is commercial rated fiberglass, isn't compact, and weighs a ton.

For the occasional need for a ladder on the go, our Telesteps fits the bill nicely.
