Kenny, I do need a stool to comfortably step in and out. I don't have a photo to hand right now, but will look for one. It's not a real "high-water" entry, but is higher than it was before. The good new is that it tows well and no longer drags over curbs and big bumps in the pavement. It was a struggle finding anyone locally who had a clue about FG trailers, and this axle cost more than we expected. I hope you can find someone to do this for you!
