Steps and Hand Rails

My wife and I have both become less sure with our balance so I purchased a set up to help us when entering and exiting. Thought some of you might need something as well.

Here is a link to the place I purchased our. Our setup cost $495 delivered to our home near Dallas, TX. They are very well made and easy to install. They can be installed on either the top step on the next one down. I chose the second step down.

It takes all of two minutes (or less) to set up. They fold up into a compact package which makes them easy to store and they aren't very heavy to carry around. We absolutely love them!

Thanks for sharing that. I'm sure there are a few people that would have an interest in this. Looks like a fall is easily prevented.

Hey that looks pretty neat. I'm wondering about how the stairs attach to the RV steps? Do they just sit on top of the top step, or do they attach to it somehow? Concerned about how stable it would be if it just rests on top of the RV step.

Thanks.

They have two tabs on the back of the top platform that keep the steps from slipping off. You need to have about an inch clearance from the top of the top step to the trailer to give room for the tabs. Gary also installed two "I" hooks facing downward on each side of the top platform so a person can affix a strap underneath your trailer/MH step if you want.

Our MH doesn't have the one inch clearance but we actually prefer using it on the second step. The support pieces on ours is actually sitting in P gravel but the steps don't feel unstable at all. It is a wonderful product.
