I picked up some black grit impregnated wide tape at big box building supply store. HD as I recall. Has been on dog agility equipment that is outside most of the summer and still on it two years later.

Also they make a very fine grit that comes in a carton about 1/2 pint size which you can mix into the paint. Will say the no-slip tape won't stick as well to the paint with grit in it.

I made this out of 4" pvc fence post and the fencing. There is 5" fence post also. It is relatively light for it;s size. It is made the same width as the door so you can step out anywhere. It will tip if you step on the edge, but I push it under the trailer a few inches so it won't flip completely.

Actually, I pull my pants up even higher above my belly (so my socks show*), and give them my best "don't mess with me punk" glare.

I am dedicated to off-label use and reuse of various scrap I have around. This works for us quite well. The most expensive part is the "astroturf" door mat from a hardware store. It is 3/8 plywood, 2x4's, some nails and screws and, very important, those big paper clips. Without them the mat gets blown all over the campsite. It is stable and non-slip. The mat is easy shake clean or hose down if needed. If it had to be higher than these 6 inches, I would use two pieces of 2x4's in at least two corners, for better stability.

I bought a fairly pricey (near $100) metal step with telescoping and folding legs at Camping World after having made several myself and wasn't happy with any. The one I bought has the legs angling out which makes it more stable.
