Who We Are — Who We Serve
If you’re planning to hit the road in an RV this year, then you’re joining millions of others in the U.S. who enjoy this lifestyle. Whether it’s your first time or not, there are some RV accessories you should never be without during your trip, and a Ladder Gadget is definitely one of them. Yet who are these company owners, anyway? And who do we work so hard for? Read on to find out.
It All Began with a Tent Trailer
Long before we invented the Ladder Gadget, we were parents of young children who joined us in our Suburban as we towed our humble tent trailer behind it. Inevitably, our kids got older and, as they became teenagers, they weren’t as interested in hanging out with Mom and Dad so much anymore. Yup, it took us by surprise too!
With the kids no longer accompanying us on our road trips, we invested in a smaller, truck-mounted camper. Unfortunately, our dog became tired of having to share such a small space with us, so we had no choice but to upgrade—and what an upgrade it was! Our travel experience changed completely when we bought an 11½-foot truck camper.
Our love of dogs inspired us to expand our furbaby family to two canines, and, today, we are cruising in a Class A RV that we absolutely adore. Over so many years of change with our travel vehicles and our human and canine families, we experienced a wide variety of exciting places, enjoying all manners of delicious fare, and making many new friendships along the way, and we still do. Yet, even with everything that changed, one thing didn’t.
We Did Our Best
If you’ve been RVing for a while, you know what it’s like; as self-contained as you are, sometimes you just have to make do. That’s what we did with a lot of things in the beginning, but we became more innovative as time went on.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t an RV accessory to hang items in a neat and organized manner. Instead, we threw our wet towels, bathing suits, and everything else that should have a proper hanger on anything we could think of.
Granted, it did make our campsite look lived-in, but not in the most positive way. When we arrived at parks that didn’t allow the hanging of items on their fences and trees, we were even more out of luck for hanging spots.
As a result, we simply had to deal with the fact that, sometimes, our items wouldn’t be usable when we needed them, and the other items we wanted to hang, like bird feeders, would simply have to wait until the next stop.
By this time, RV hangers had been on the market for a while but finding one that looked attractive or which didn’t interfere with our access to the RV ladder was impossible. Add to that the fact that so many hangers would only last for a season or two, and we’d had enough. That’s when we decided to design Ladder Gadget, an incredibly durable and versatile product that lets you attractively hang all sorts of items from your RV ladder without losing access to it.
We Built Ladder Gadget to Last and Look Great
Our product is built using 6061 aluminum. This material is used in the building of yachts, SCUBA tanks, and automotive parts. Simply put, it’s built not only to last but to outlast the life of your RV.
Along with its unparalleled durability, Ladder Gadget’s simple yet incredibly practical construction looks great when it’s installed. As well, it can be installed in just five steps and, when you aren’t using it, you just fold Ladder Gadget down and lock it into travel position.
It’s the way this RV accessory sits on your ladder that makes it such a must-have. Because it installs on either side of the ladder, Ladder Gadget will leave your steps clear. Choose silver or black finish and, when folded down, this incredibly versatile product will look practically invisible and also like it came with your RV.
What Can You Do with Ladder Gadget?
Okay, so now you know what Ladder Gadget is really made of, how easy it is to install, and how great it looks—but what about what you can use it for? To be honest, you can use your Ladder Gadget for just about anything you can think of.
Keep the Kids (and Adults) Entertained
We know that kids love their handheld devices. While you can’t eliminate them completely on your trip, you can attract their attention to the nature around them when you hang one or more bird feeders on your Ladder Gadget. Get the kids to use online field guides to identify the birds who visit your feeders.
Another great way to add fun and games is by hanging a dartboard on your Ladder Gadget. With several different holes and hooks for mounting and hanging, our product can hold a dartboard safely and securely until you take it down.
Hang Towels, Bathing Suits, and Much More
Your Ladder Gadget is like a mini clothesline, but much better. The days of draping wet items on the nearest branch or bush or trying to hang them on a rope clothesline are over. Instead, use the holes and hooks to put items on hangers—and, voila! You have an outdoor drying station.
Because you can hang wet items on hangers or right over Ladder Gadget, you never have to worry about items not being dry; the breeze can reach both sides of towels and garments.
You’ll also find that this product can help you prepare for your fishing or hiking excursion; backpacks, hip waders, hiking boots, and lanterns are neatly and easily stored over the top of or hanging from Ladder Gadget.
If you’re heading to a tailgating party, Ladder Gadget can help you show your team spirit. Just slip your flag pocket over the holes or use the holes to attach your flag’s D rings. At the campsite or RV park, you can hang a family or fun message flag.
You can even hang a colorful wind spinner or wind chime to decorate your temporary home. No matter what you choose, Ladder Gadget is the only one of all the RV accessories that will help you beautify your campsite.
A Great Addition to Any Outdoor Kitchen
Ladder Gadget can also be a great way to hang your kitchen utensils or cleaning supplies. Just attach S-hooks and hang spatulas, grill cleaners, dish towels, scrubbers and more. No more having to search for a spot for your cooking and cleaning items; it’ll all be right there when you need it.
No Matter Where You Roam, Ladder Gadget Is There
RVing in the U.S. offers you the choice of more than 18,000 privately owned and public campgrounds. That means whether you choose the lap of luxury at an RV resort or prefer to get back to nature at a public site, Ladder Gadget has you covered.
