Getting myself on the trailer made easy!

Postby Barnyard » Sat Jul 04, 2020 2:58 pm

Last summer I commented how hard it is for an old guy like me to get up on my new deck over. I usually climb on the tongue to get there. Then in September I broke down and bought a set of RV steps and mounted them on the right side as you would on a camper. Of course that set me back $200.00 with tax and shipping. But, it made getting on the trailer so much easier. I wanted to add another set on the left side, but $200.00 was too questionable.

Here is where FaceBook Market Place comes in. A guy an hour away was camping with his family and his basset hound got her claw caught in one of the holes on the steps and fell, ripping her claw off. The guy replaced his practically new steps with a new set of solid ones to eliminate the holes. The ones he took off were exactly what I had on my trailer. Brand, size, perforated holes, everything. A nice leisurely hour ride through the country and $40.00 out of my pocket and I have what I wanted for 1/5th the cost.

A winch, 64 tie down points, side boards, lightweight 10' aluminum ramps and easy access from either side. I don't think I can make it any nicer.

This is the first one I bought from the RV place.
When opened, it is perfect for safely getting on the trailer.

The first one mounted nicely under the trailer.

The used step I bought is like new and is identical to the first set.

Once it is mounted and opened I will easily be able to get on the trailer from either side.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

In a few more years you will want a hand rail also.
