I have stood on the tailgate but usually carry a ladder, the simplest method is the easiest. An awning or topper as it is called would be a good choice also.

The only time I have had to clean my slide roof was after a snow fall or a heavy leaf fall. A push broom works well.


Twenty six foot 2010 Dutchmen Lite pulled with a 2011 EcoBoost F-150 4x4.

Just right for Grandpa, Grandma and the dog.

Ladder here too along with a snow brush. I use the Harbor Freight version of the Little Giant. Most of the time it's $109 with a coupon. Once or twice I've seen it for $99. Great ladder for the price. Very sturdy but a bit heavier than the telescoping ladder someone else linked to earlier in the thread.

I made a bush similar to the link above using old boom handles, a 45 deg pvc connector and a wall paper brush. Works OK.

A leaf blower works great if you're into lugging one with you. Just as long as you're not the guy who wants to hit the road at 7AM and fires the thing up at 6, right before running the stab jacks up with the impact gun, but after taking down the bug zapper that buzzed and popped the entire night.

I was beside that guy last October. He also had to blow the falling leaves off every sq. ft. of his site onto the road and adjacent sites every 2 hours for the entire weekend. Kind of a losing battle in the middle of a state forest in October.

Serves to remind one of why they like boondocking, so it can be a good thing.

I installed a ladder on ours, but I still carry a 6’ step ladder.

They do that to give people like you something to gripe about on RV forums - as opposed to having something useful to contribute. And as someone mentioned, they bring a battery powered leaf blower so maybe you can try boating.


Experience without good judgment is worthless; good judgment without experience is still good judgment!
