Cliff,
I have two Weight activitated style rolling ladders. They are extremely=
stable, especially carrying very heavy items.
Mine have a flip up shelf at the top when you are working to place things w=
ithout bending over on a ladder. True they
take some floor space to store, but they won't disappear like a folding lad=
der!! Shop around, here is an example:

ct=3Dtrue&No=3D15
They will last forever, mine are over 40 years old!
At home I have a little giant, but I would not have one here, they get =
heavy!!
All the Best,

Any advise or suggestions (I think a Genie lift would blow the budget)?
