Pull-down/fold-up or telescoping attic stairs?

One option is to replace my broken pull-down wooden attic stairs,
rather than replace a broken lift mechanism with a sheared pivot pin.
Anyone install and use a telescoping ladder as opposed to a fold-up
attic ladder?

Would it matter what you used it for? I wonder if, for example,
carrying things is easier with one kind or another.

Just something to think about - your actual usage of the ladder.

I am a new member and just posted pictures. the attic broke the other day so I took them apart so all that’s left is the frame and door. I purchased a stand-alone telescoping ladder yesterday and it feels much safer to me. I now need to come up with a latch you can pull on (string) to open it. Maybe you should try the same thing. The ladder is small and fits into a closet or I may mount it to the frame so it’s always there when I pull down the door. The door is wry light so it shouldn’t be an issue needing a spring.
