You gotta have a ladder to access the roof for putting on the Christmas lights and decorations. Otherwise, the trailer looks kind of odd with lights only on the bottom portion of the trailer.

J Mac,

My travel trailer IS my home. We live in it full time, so everything I need travels with me at all times.

Good point for most of us, but Fred and Dora full time in theirs so when they're at the trailer, they are home. (They REALLY like each other as they have been full timing in their Casita more than two years!)

I still don't know why full timers spend so much time on their roof.

Just as I wonder why with a lot of customer choices, I am certain that many wonder the about many of mine. We all have different styles, wants and needs.

I wouldn't spend any time on the roof or have anyone else do that. Hasn't Reace told someone that we shouldn't get on the roof? Don't think that that is advisable with these small trailers. Some people lean a ladder against the sidewall.

The idea is to access the top of the trailer. I don't think anyone is planning to climb in it.... I hope.

There are lots of folks who make that assumption from stickies. And also the ones who have never had a trailer and want to know if they can get on the roof. Just want to make that clear as they might not have realized what people were saying.

Hi: Red Dog... I don't trust ladders... even if DW promises to catch me on the first bounce!!! I'd rather use a "Sky hook", but with my luck the rope would snap!!! Alf

Where will you store the ladder, under the bed?
