We wanted a stable entry into the camper for our 10 year old dogs and humans.

Fold Up Landing Aluminum

I fabricated the deck from steel with a plexiglass bottom.  Then, I painted it with PPG custom matched automotive paint and installed rubber decking for anti-slip.

Fold Up Entry Steps Down For Use

I added detachable MORyde Quick Connect 3-step entry steps (after modifying them to make them narrower).

Fold Up Landing And Entry Steps

I used a continuous hinge to attach to the bumper for folding up during travel.  The existing step bracket was used to install a retainer to hold the steps up.

Fold Up Landing Ladder Bracket

A bracket was made on the ladder to hold the steps when they are removed.

Fold Up Steps On Ladder

The fold-up steps are awesome and super stable.  This stable entry gives us more room coming out of the camper.

It took me 12-hours to complete this modification and cost me $500.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is hard.
