roofrack ladder feedback

Post by plymouth paul »

Just received my ladder from 'Turbo Thomas' as was originally posted by 'Jenni' on here.

Very happy with it - well made, solid and looks good on the bus. Just waiting to powder coat it black and then it'll be fitted for use.

I've included a couple of photos in case anyone is interested as I believe that he still has a few mild and stainless steel ones for sale. The mild steel cost me £140.

Thanks to Jenni for arranging the purchase. :D

It's really great :D and as a bonus, if you dont want to have it on the side all the time, it fits snuggly on/in the roofrack.

Nice to see I'm a trend setter, the only thing i would do guys is change the feet to rubber ones like my original ladder saves marking the van.

Now I've got two I've got no excuse to go up top

my original one in the pic below

Although it can stay on while diving (with addition of a couple of springs at the bottom) I can see times when it'l be really handy to be able to tuck it away up on top, like this -

Hey shaggy, yep, Dr Stew had a bit of a play :D
