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.
Thank you for this Greg! Was wondering about this ladder and per your recommendation, it's going on Santa's list! Nice Cyber Monday deal, too. Thanks, Bea

Greg, you're costing me money - the 10.5ft will be here Thurs. $87.91 with cyber Monday deal. Thanks for letting us know about this ladder - it looks like a quality item.

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.
