Rear platforms on truck campers

Looking for ideas for a platform and stairs for the rear door on my truck camper. I would like to have a folding down platform, say 4' wide, and stairs off to the side. I want to tow a trailer with boat/atv behind the truck camper, and this is the reason for the side stairs.

If anyone have a folding platform for their truck camper, please post pictures. Looking for inspiration in developing the one I want to build for my setup.

All comments and suggestions are welcome.

On another forum there was quite a thread w/pics.
Google might be your friend for some examples.

When I originally put my tc on my 01 ford it sat very close to the roof lights. I used a couple of pieces of wood to allow me to mount it. Then I got the idea of using 2"square tubing and welding up a base to attach to the camper, this I extended 3' past the rear and turned it into a multi purpose platform. We use it for cooking, outside buffets and extra storage space while travelling. I have since welded a cage under it that houses our genny.

Maybe use a folding cargo carrier as a platform base? With one of those dual hitch adapters so you could pull the boat trailer, too
