It looks to me like the telescoping tubes lead to early rusting that is not easily removed.
I like the telescopic ladder I have as it fits the wooden steps I made and it stores nicely when folded up.

It is the bottom step that goes and the welds succumb to crevice corrosion.

They last 4 years so at 49 $ that is 12.25 $ US a year. Seems a good deal to me.
