Your wife won't be using this style ladder, as they are pretty darn heavy to haul and convert into the various positions.
I looked at the Little Giant's when i was getting ladders for the house but opted for the Werner MT-22. It has a 300lb rating and got this for $159 at the local Home Depot.
If you need a versatile ladder for the house and don't mind the weight, this is a fair price for a lifetime warranty ladder and only $5 shipping for this weight.
Mine got the most use for doing crown molding, painting the tops of walls and sheet rocking the top of the walls. It converts into 2 A-Frame ladders that you can put a plank across for walking back and forth.
How do you know when it's time to tune your bagpipes?

If this one is the right size for your needs, get it. You (and the next 5 generations of your family) will never need to buy a replacement. They'll only stop using it once antigravity boots become available.
I have this one's big brother (24') and paid a lot more for it 20 years ago. It is heavy, but it won't give, or slip, or move. Mine's been dropped, backed over, and generally abused and still works like new.

I bought this very same ladder back in December. This is actually the Little Giant Alta-One model. Its an excellent ladder. It says refurbished, but in my opinion its better than new. The "refurbished" part of it is that it has additional supports at the bottom and top steps welded on. This actually makes it stronger than a new one that you might buy at the store. It looked new to me. I'm 6' 5" tall, 220 lbs. When I'm on it it feels very very stable. Whats nice about it is that it folds up very small, and its easy to store & carry around. WHen you order this from Woot, it is actually shipped directly from the manufacturer. I love this ladder, and I recommend it if your in need of one.
