Why specifically do you want the ladder inside the skirt awning?
I have just come back from 5 week trip to Morocco with the a Howling Moon and MyWay tent on the car. The Howling Moon had the ladder coming down under a covered area like you want, but to be honest it was just more fiddling when setting up and pulling down.
OK, if I had had it on the back of the car (it was mounted to open over the bonnet, I may have considered using the shower skirt/awning, but weighing up the benefit of a covered over laddder versus the benefot of some of the easier and lighter tents (like the MyWay) I would go for easier and lighter every time.
I found the Howling Moon tent took much longer to put up and pack away and the bit over the ladder needs to be pegged down to be really effective,, which isn't always possible.
