That's a great idea, too, Byron. I like the ramp idea. Maybe I could make a box like Doug's but do it as a big triangle instead of a rectangle. Hmmm.... now you've all really got me thinking! My husband doesn't know it yet, but he'll thank you.

Any of these step options can be slippery for a dog, but you can add a low-loop pile carpet to it for traction.

I did something similar to Dougs, but made of wood. 6" board sides, plywood top, rubber stair runner on top. Flip it upside down just inside the door with two screw type stabilizer jacks, handle for the rear stabilizers, few short boards for leveling, and a fire extinguisher inside it. Fire extinguisher sets outside next to door at campsite.

Appreciated all the comments and descriptions of how you have managed the step for your RV! I have ordered the Scamp trailer step and will consider making an auxiliary step.

[QUOTE=Steve and Rosemary;427393The exercise step is a good idea but might be too slippery for her..[/QUOTE]

If the none skid finish on it isnt enough you can by from places such as Home Depot - none skid strips (found on wood stairs) that stick on & are weather proof (or at least some are).

When I purchased our 2003 Scamp it had a factory installed step that had been dragged over a curb and bent back about an inch. It always hung up and was difficult to use. After 2 years of swearing at that thing I finally removed it, straightened it out, painted it and put it back on. It now is so nice to use, I can't believe I let it go for so long. It's great..

In front of door

When camped I have large door mat and the steel step with folding legs on top of the door mat. The step holds the door mat down and provides 3" to 4" of step.

Does double duty.
