LandyLubber has found the perfect alternative to the cumbersome rear roof rack/tent access ladder:
Side Steps Ladder!
These steps are superb, highest quality marine grade stainless steel folding mast steps.
They can be used in many applications where a small folding step or grab handle is required.
Not only for use on land Rovers, but good for use on boats, caravans, motor homes & anywhere else that you need safe access to climb.
On a big expedition roof rack, especially with a tent up top, you can't always access the whole of the rack from the back of the vehicle. These steps allow you to quickly access the roof rack from the side, without having to have your door open to stand on a seat, or having to hang out of the window to grab whatever is above you on the rack.
When your roof tent is erected, you certainly can't get to the roof rack unless you clamber onto the bonnet.
These steps will not affect the overall silhouette of the vehicle very little given that they will protrude approx 85mm with bracket when in use and approx 22mm when in folding position.
