Step cover

We have small dogs we travel with who have fallen in the step cavity. I searched for a solution to no avail. This is my second cover to address the issue. The original one was too heavy. This one is a laminate that is light enough to easily move it using the rope pulls.. The velcro hinge allows it to be raised up and out to clear the screen door. So far the velcro is more than enough to hold it. It will hold my 185 lbs.

It looks good. We travel with Cats but we keep them in Carriers till we get to where we are going so they do not get hurt

Probably too late; my 1994 Gulf Stream has one installed from the factory.
