Mine didn't come with a ladder. So after joining here 6 months ago and brushing up on all the proper maintenance procedures, I realized I would need to use a good ladder for almost all of the procedures.
Got one of those fancy high $dollar articulating things. It's a beast. Looks like it would last forever too. And indeed, it makes cleaning and climbing on and off easy and stable as a rock.
However, no way would it be my "roady" ladder. Although it will collapse down enough to stuff it in the bed of the truck, I just can't allocate the portion of my GVW that thing would consume.
So I'm still researching the highest quality ladder per pound candidate.
