I love my exercise steps, $5 at Goodwill, wider than the trailer door so very little chance of missing them as I back out of my Hunter to avoid hitting the door sill. Also wide/big enough to put stuff on when loading or unloading the trailer. The rubber is non-skid and it's easy to level them with 2x4 if needed. They don't weigh much and do a good job of filling the floor to keep the ice chest and other heavy articles in front of the axle while going down the road.
The little green folding step is about 9 inches tall. Besides being too short, esp. if I'm on a slope (I'm on a slight slope in the pic) it moves too easily. I'd like something a little taller (or two steps) that I could anchor to the back bumper. Not mounted, necessarily, just to be able to keep it in place when it is in use. Any suggestions?
It can be 8", 6" or 4" tall. There are 3 sections that stack together. It is 26" wide, 16" deep and they weighed 11 1/2 lbs. I'll post a pic of them to your FB posting about it. I think I'll be painting them eventually. Loved the price.
Why not use actual rv steps? It looks like you have plenty of ground clearance.
Yes, there's a lot of clearance, but this is under the rear bumper, not under the side just ahead of the wheels like a typical door. Anything hanging down is a potential ground scraper going through a driveway entrance.

Yes, good point. The stabilizers are about two inches below the bumper and they haven't (to my knowledge) it but who knows. Ferries at low tides are a possible problem, too, though in the past it was the old jack that bottomed out.
Not much taller but larger, wider, and more stable than my little folding one, and it can be staked to the ground (not sure if that will work but I'll try it; mostly we're on pavement.) If it is too short I'll use it in the house and try something else so no loss; I need something in the house.
Here is my choice - 2-Height Platform Step - Stromberg Carlson P-102 - Steps - Camping World I feel totally safe exiting my Burro with a wine glass in one hand and my dog's leash in the other. The stability is phenomenal. The open weave surface allows dirt to fall through and isn't at all slippery. I fold up the legs and place it upside down inside the trailer next to the door. The surface area is quite large and I never worry about missing the step as I exit. In the past I've used both an aerobic step and a folding step. This one is my pick, hands down.
