Stability was much better than the Aframe ladder I had been using and I felt very comfortable using the ladder. Placed a towel across the top rungs and leaned it against the trailer.
There is a red step that you aren't supposed to go beyond, and standing on the step below I can reach about 66% of the width of the 19 roof for washing/waxing.
This will easily fit in our tow and without taking up much of any space. I'm sure it would go right in the front storage box very well.
I got the 8.5 foot for $69 and it's perfect for the 19. Probably would go with the 10.5 for the 21,23, and 5.0.
I have a 5.0TA and a ladder similar to this. Mine is a 12 footer, if I were to buy again it would be the 10.5 foot ladder. A 10.5 would be lighter and still have enough height. Mine weighs 24 lbs. which seems plenty heavy, a 10.5 foot weighs 20 lbs.
I like the ladder, very well built, works easily and it is sturdy.
I use a pipe insulation (similar to a pool noodle) on the top rung. it stays on making it very convenient.
