I've never found it necessary to get up there while camping. I'd use the tongue/propane tank access (with the top lowered) if needed. At home, I use a step ladder.

I would suggest that there is nowhere I would want to attach a ladder to my trlr.

I do keep a step ladder with me in the TV. Not for access of the trlr top, but for access to the TV.
My newest TV is a ford f350 and it is lifted. A comical site to watch my diminutive spouse that is 68 old years climb in to the truck. And she has no problem hustling this truck around.

When I do access the top, it is ALWAYS in the down position, so the tongue and propane bottle access would be the most likely.

Dang, I wish everyone would stop coming up with all of these extras that could be handy while camping. Pretty soon I won't have room left for my better half. I celebrated the 34 anniversary of my 39th birthday several months ago so I can't see myself climbing up on propane tanks to reach the top of my trailer. However, I do have a truck box on the back of my Tundra and with the truck parked close to the trailer I'm sure I could climb on top of the trailer by standing on the truck box. Thank goodness, I just found room for the spouse.

I am unable to climb like a young person anymore and DH can't/won't climb either.

The thought process is that if we carry our kayaks on top of the UFO, one of us, me has to be able to get on the roof safely to get them up there and secured and to be able to get them down.
Carrying a ladder with us is not a good option.

Garry, dump the ladder and keep your spouse . . . you won't find anything handier than her!

So after long and thoughtful consideration. I decided not to mount a ladder onto the the UFO. I purchased a telescoping ladder since we will also need it to get our kayaks out of the loft in our shed.. and storage and transportation will not be an issue.
