Question Add Fox Landing step to Lance 945?

Has anyone added the Fox Landing to a Lance bumper?
I don't want to change out the bumper just add the landing step.
My camper is a bit old it is a 1995 Lance 945 and in good shape.
This landing would be great for towing and camping.

THe bumper that the Fox Landing is intended to mount to has outriggers (mounting brackets) that extend a lot further forward than the non Fox Landing bumpers. The are there to reduce the stresses placed against the bottom of the camper when weight is on the Fox Landing.

I don't think I'd want to mount one on an older bumper

I tried using a stool set to the side when the Tracker was connected to provide a step up to the bumper on our 11.4' Caribou (similar to Lance). After my wife slipped off the stool coming out with an armful of bedclothes and broke her wrist, I simply welded another tab to the side and moved the original step one step width to the side using one old tab and the new one. I moved it to the roof ladder side which allowed using the ladder as a hand hold. The step cleared the hitch tongue easily and there were no more falls. The step was always folded up when traveling. This cost only a few dollars and worked fine the rest of the time we had the camper.

Best of luck,

Steve

I'm sorry, but I don't and we sold the camper last fall after getting the Flair.

It wasn't that difficult. I just measured the distance between the step mounting tabs. Then cut out one like the original and welded it in place to the side. I left the original step mounts on the bumper so I could go back to them if I wanted to, but I never did.

If this isn't something you could do, it may be possible to have a friend or shop look at it.

Best of luck.

Steve

Contact Arctic Fox or Torklift about adding their rear bumper to your Lance to handle the additional leverage of the Fox Landing. I do not think the stock Lance bumper will handle it without serious modification. Torklift also makes the new Lance bumper option that has a slide out storage compartment - You could contact Lance if this would fit your Lance model.
