Dont forget the pipe lagging foam or similar tied to top rung to protect the van
Oh I can so relate! I've got a cherry tree in my smallish back garden and it manages to drop stuff all over the grass all year round! If it's not leaves, it's twigs, crunchy blossom clumps or cherries that the birds or wind have knocked off. I ruined a lawnmower by not raking up all the debris before I mowed... and I don't even eat the cherries It badly needs pruning now but I'm seriously thinking of getting it removed instead, pretty as it is in bloom.Mine isn't exactly parked under trees, but it isn't far from them. The main culprit is a cherry tree. The car is covered in half-ripe cherries at present, due to windy weather.
Your chosen ladders want to be safety rated EN 131, if they are not I advise to not to purchase them. Any EN131's should be fineLooking at various brands and they do differ in price somewhat.
Do you mind me asking what the extended height of yours is and the manufacturer?
Ah we own a Smartcar too good choice.
I don't actually own a Smartcar I'm more a Fiat 500 man.
The garage I was referring to was that of a motorhome and no I don't own one of those that can fit a Smartcar in
Just happens the Smartcar always seems to be the vehicle of choice for those that can fit them in.

Telescopic ladders are the Devils device. Geeky lent me his incredibly heavy and incredibly dangerous ladders at the New Forest meet, got them up against the side of the MH and the top half came crashing down. All I saw was my finger bending backwards trying to touch the back of my wrist, any second now the finger is going to snap I thought, it didn't but nearly a month later I still don't have full movement in it.
It would have helped if I had my glasses on to read the instructions and not just assumed that extending them required no safety catch. DOH!!
Not that I will ever tell Geeky that.
I am just waiting for the phone call from a personal injury lawyer who specialises in ladder accidents at MH meets
Ok slight change of tack, thought planted by izwozral, anyone going to Hereford (15th-20th Oct) who has one and could bring with them.
In exchange I can offer a socially distanced luke warm cup of tea/coffee.
