Kinda of odd then that they sell them at every rv supply store I've ever been in & if you're leaning it against the front cap or unprotected against the paint maybe shouldn't buy the ladder or be doing your own repairs. Just my .02 cents!

I received my ladder today from Amazon and it is just as described. I paid $29.99. Today the price is up to almost $85.00

Not sure where you are looking, but this is sold on Amazon under multiple brand names and all are rated 4 or 5 stars.

you have to read the reviews.not look at stars.there are many reviews where people that bought these ladders tell you what they think of them.

Another consideration is the weight rating, if it's only 250 then in my case I'm15lbs over if my pockets are empty, so forget carrying tools or a bucket of wash water.
