Default Ladder? Pros and Cons

I do not see a thread addressing the question of whether or not to get a back ladder on a B+

We have pretty much decided on a LTV UnityTB, (haven't finalized this yet; looking at which options to consider). My husband says he can take or leave the ladder and I prefer the appearance of the back without one. One member mentioned that a ladder gives you options for racks (bike, etc).

Would like to hear the pros and cons of ladders. If you have them, are they useful? If not, do you wish you did?

All comments will be appreciated.

To me it depends on how whether you stow things on the roof and how long your trips are. If you are going to want to get anything on and off the roof then the ladder obviously helps. If you are going to be on longer trips and are not going to carry some sort of ladder elsewhere you'll find times when you want to get up top to clean, inspect, or repair something.

Ladders make horrible bike racks.

Nobody likes a 4 ft kayak.

Our back ladder is used only by our 11-year old grandson to sit on the top step and ponder life or read a book.

I use ours all the time, as we store our Golf Clubs in the top storage pod. Not to mention the ability to easily gain roof access to clean off solar panels.
