Building a step platform cover

OK so I don't know of the official term for the piece of flooring that covers where the steps that lead outside when the door is closed goes, but I know I'd like to put something there. I think those that have a cover have an automatic step cover. Has anyone made one for themselves? Is there an aftermarket industry that sells them? I've been searching various forums for them but I do not seem to have the correct terminology?

I call it the entry step trap door...but call it what you like. We use ours all the time and we think it is a safety improvement too!

See post #49 here: OUTLAW Mods and Easy Fixes

Homemade is the only ones I know of.

Best of luck!

I made one for my previous MH. I used 3/4 plywood, rubber mat cover.

The Landau came with a carpeted step well cover, hinged along forward edge, manually folds down onto a carpeted 1x2 frame in the stepwell that brings it level with the floor. It folds up against dash when not in use.
