Extra Trailer entrance door step

Tried to search for the appropriate thread to include this in, but couldn't find it, so here goes.

On one of these trailer boards, someone was looking for an extra step to make up for a hi-lift axle, etc. Here are two possible solutions:

www dot goldviolin dot com carries them both.

1) Item 91731 is a 17" x 14" plastic step in three parts, one 2" thick and two 1" thick pieces. Using 1, 2 or 3 parts get you a 2" thick, 3" thick or 4" thick step.

2) Item 92299 or Item 92644 provides a 27" x 17" step, adjustable up to 3.5" thick, or up to 4.5" thick.

The site sells products for independent living.....I have no idea why they sent their catalog to us.....must have been a mistake ;-).

Mike

We needed a step to allow us to get into our little trailer and bought this one:

It works very well, makes getting in and out of the trailer much easier.

Couldn't find one 'trick' enough for our liking so we had a polished diamond plate box made up for ourselves. The 'step' doubles (when inverted) as a catch all for things (stabilizers, etc) first needed in trailer set up when we get nestled in, LOL!!!!

oooh I like that step Doug! Hummm (wheels turning here). I've heard folks comment on liking a step used for step arobics... typically find them at Goodwill and the like for few $$. Very stable and has adjustable height... like this one: The Step F1004 - Workout System - Core Training#

Wow, Doug, I like your idea, too - of inverting the step to use as a box for wheel chock, etc. storage. Thanks!

We use the same step as Brian and purchased ours at Camping World:
Stromberg Carlson Products Inc - Aluminum Folding Step - RV Steps - Camping World
They are expensive, but are sometimes available at a reduced price. They are slip resistant and absolutely will not tip over.

Vickie:

I bought mine online from PPL. They seem to have warehouses around the country. Delivery was pretty fast (within a few days). They occasionally have sales. I suggest you compare prices.
