Why Do RVs Have Ladders?


RVs are a popular choice for those passionate about traveling vast spans of land and sightseeing while maintaining comfort, similar to a home. While RVs offer a number of features and amenities, we detail one aspect that is likely overlooked. On most RVs, you'll find that it is designed with a ladder. Ever wondered the importance? Below is an insight into why RVs have ladders.

Roof Cleaning and Inspections

To clean the roof of an RV, you surely need a ladder. The roof is an essential part of the RV. Since most RV roofs are made of rubber or fiberglass, it requires frequent cleaning. Keeping the roof clean is essential as it is part of maintenance. It also increases the life of your RV. For cleaning and maintenance purposes, the RV ladder will help you access the roof with ease.

Accessing Rooftop Storage

The ladder also enables you to access the rooftop storage if installed. Rooftop storage gives you additional space. You can use the space to store large items like Kayaks and bikes.

Clearing Snow from Rooftop

RV ladders are also convenient for clearing the snow. Accumulated snow can damage your rooftop and be dangerous, especially if left unattended. Having a ladder installed, makes an arduous task such as snow clearing look easy.

Rooftop Appliance Repair

It's helpful to have the ladder in situations where roadside repairs are necessary. The ladder allows access to varying appliances like air vents, antennas, and air conditioners. Roadside repairs become easier when a ladder is installed in your RV.

Elevated Outdoor Views

RVs are made for you to enjoy the outdoors. A ladder will get you on top of the roof and enjoy the panoramic view of the environment. You can also have the ladder installed for beauty. Sometimes it is not what it can do but the elegance that comes with it. You can be creative by perhaps cladding it with appealing features or gold plating it.
