New Step Into Wet Bath

New Step Into The Wet Bath
2011 Ford F-350
2021 Wolf Creek 890

Our Wolf Creek 890 had this tiny step to enter the wet bath. For us, it was an accident waiting to happen. The bathroom was also tight with the door.

New Step Inside

First, I removed the tiny step and built a platform to the other side. Then, I installed a larger vent to cover the hole where the tiny step was and smaller vents for the platform.

Step Outside Shower

The carpet was added for comfort. I made this new step removable in case I need access to the fuses, etc. As you can see in the picture, the fuse box is behind the step.

Before New Step Was Made

I also took the bathroom door off and installed a shower curtain. We’re big people, so we need all the room we can get.

My wife and I love this modification. It makes a world of difference as far as confidence getting in and out of the bathroom. We also love the look of it.

Step Into Wet Bath

Materials Used:
Scrap plywood, glue, contact cement and screws
A remnant of carpet for $25
One large vent and two smaller vents at Home Depot for approximately $50

It took me about two days to complete this modification and cost me about $100.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is medium.
