Scamp step on Boler?

Does anyone happen to know if the outside step for a Scamp would fit on a 1977 Boler (17ft)?

Ours is rusted and knocked to bits and needs replacing or just removing.

The steps used on RVs are all an after market item and available at most all RV suppliers. You may have to do a little rework depending if the old one was bolted or welded on.

Ok... that's good to know. I guess I'll pull mine off and take some measurements and look around locally.

Don't bother with the metal pull out step. As you know, they get banged up and rusty and I think they are too close to the door sill to be safe.
We use a plastic kitchen step stool which rides inside, and is handy to place wherever it fits your stride.
At some campsites, depending on the slope of the ground, you may not need the step at all.
You will even find it handy for a step up in other places.

We have a similar solution now actually. Just a wooden box with some carpeting on it. It has the added benefit of weighing down the pad we have in front of the trailer.

This may be our permanent solution.

We use a home made wood step with rubber tread on it. It measures 20" X 18" X 7" high. When traveling I put it just inside the trailer door with my front stabilizers, wheel chocks, fire extinguisher, and a few boards in it, ready for our next stop.
