Chutes and a Ladder

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

I own a 40-foot American Eagle motorhome with a storage area that goes all the way across underneath the coach. I bought a folding ladder from Camping World (item No. 20319) that folds down to about 4 inches square. I wanted to be able to put the ladder in the storage area and get it out again without having to move everything off of it. My solution was to buy a 5-by-5-by-96-inch vinyl post cover at a building supply store. The post cover fits precisely across the storage compartment. The ladder slides in and out of the square post cover and is always easily accessible. I bought a second post cover for fishing rods to protect them from breaking when the cargo shifts in the storage area.
