Foldable steps on Spirit Delux??

I bought a set of
Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps https://www.etrailer.com/RV-and-Camp...SMFP-2100.html

for my 1995 13-foot Casita Spirit Delux and now I'm wondering if there is a way to attach them.



I can weld, but the only thing available to weld to is the longitudinal frame member on that side. (There is also a transvers stub frame piece welded to the longitudinal frame member. That stub piece is in the way.

my 16'er has a single step that retracts (manually) for travel. it's a step originally on a 17' casita. it's welded on and as well as i remember there was some cutting involved. this mod was way above my pay grade so i got larry gamble (little house customs) to do it. i watched and there was lots of sparks and blue smoke. extra care welding is required since you're so close to the fiberglass. larry used heavy welder's blankets (?) but then you probably knew that. casita does not install steps on either of the smaller trailers and larry no longer does either. so, you're pretty much on your own on this one, but, i know it can be done using a standard casita step.

My brain skipped a gear tooth when I posted the steps questions. We have a 16-foot Casita, not a 13.

[We have a 16-foot Casita, not a 13.] The 16' would use the same step as a 13'. If you send a note to Larry at Little House Customs, he may be able to provide instructions for somebody else to install them for you.

Would these outriggers make it any easier? There's a dimensioned drawing down the page:

Those might be a big help, depending on how they are fastened.
