So these need to be differentiated, hop up gives you more height, aluminium and foldaway and a movement area, this is good for for getting bikes onto the roof racks also. A single step is also good but pretty limited - But enjoy.

Edit - Also note Wilko's similar platform to costco is 35pounds so at 20 pounds the one in costco is very good value.. http://www.wilko.com...3m/invt/0342714

Whilst I am 6ft 2" I use a small plastic stool to stand on and hold the roof bar with one hand whilst washing the roof as normal with a sherpskin wash mit.
