    Anyone use these? Know who sells them or has plans for them?
    Was thinking about building a roof rack and thought using some bridging ladders for the floor would be a good way to store them while traveling. Has anyone modified Sand Ladders to make them bridging ladders?

    sand ladders would have to be pretty heavily modified to support that kinda weight... dont ya think?

    speaking of SLs... anyone know where to get some here in the US? they are popular/common in europe, but we dont seem to use em here...

    Yea, Ive found some nice designs over in Europe for the Rovers. I was wondering if anyone had taken the standard Sand Ladders and beefed them up with angle iron etc to make them bridging ladders.

    Bridge ladder look simple enough to make if you had a welder.

    y dont you just weld some up? Shouldnt cost much in metal. But they would probably be really heavy
