Mostly I clean wfp - however I do have days when mainly on ladder and putting the ladder on and off my transit causes me a back pain in the evening

 

So I thought if I cut off a rung from each section the ladder will fit exactly in the van not diagonally like now . I can even make a kind of shelf / pocket where to slide it in so it wont get tangled in other stuff I carry . what do you think - does it worth it or shall i buy another ladder

Those racks do look great and maybe one day I'll have one myself. I wouldn't go cutting your ladder though sdrah, they're cheap enough to buy these days for what you get from them and a smaller ladder may be the best option if not the rack. The thing is, I'm pretty sure that should you have an accident and your ladder is found to be defective(after cutting)...well you know what I mean.

 

Mart.

Easy enough to do. Make sure you keep the retaining parts of the ladder and cut off the bottom of one and the top t'other, and don't forget to replace the pads at the end of each piece. You will probably have to drill out the rivets on the end pads, re-drill new holes and fix with self-tapping screws.
