It is simply called a kick step. Or this may not be the version you are looking for

Cav Ive built that same type once at work. Guy ordered in the spring casters. It was kinda neat just made the frame and added the casters. Did add on four lil feet and got rubber caps to fit them. Rubber caps for wooden kicthen chairs. Worked really good. I wish I would have taken it with me when I got laid off

Congratulations. Making a ladder just might be cheaper than buying because of the mfg. liability insurance that has to cover them.
