Default Re: Ladder

As an alternative you could head over to the local salvage yard and hack off a piece of ladder from an old RV.
Take it to the local welder and have some feet added.

This design uses the rear tire for the first step.

I have about $40 invested(Prime Design $351).

The re-purpose van.

Those of you that have a side mount ladder... are they easy to climb?? I don't want to fall off.
Thanks for your help.

I'm thinking something like this. I figure I don't need one that often, and some simple hooks off the rail(t1n) would suffice. Trying to keep the stealth in mind.

Drilled through the side wall and mounted with 1/4 inch steel bolts with lock washers and self locking nuts. Cheap and efficient. Four bolts per pad.

I'll post some better pictures in the morning.
Could you fall off ?
Sure.
I have since added Kayak bars but I need to string a safety line off it or some such.

Foot welded on by my local shop.
