I saw a portable mini-deck / stairs combo a guy built for the same reasons. It was made out of synthetic decking, angle brackets and carriage bolts with wing nuts.

It was a platform that was at the coach bottom landing height with three steps that paralleled the coach, not straight out. It also had a hand rail in what looked to be made from aluminum tubing that pushed together then dropped into holes in the deck. Never saw it apart but he claimed it was total takedown and easily stored in the basement for travel.

All of the material was fairly lightweight as well. He also had some type of adjustable feet or legs on the bottom. It did seem to me that it would only really work well if your on a level surface (or close) though.

I found an exercise step sold by Cory Everson at a thrift store for $5 USD. It is VERY sturdy, non-slip, looks classy and is about 18" X 30". I place it offset to the left side of the RV steps and it works better than anything I've found in the RV stores. I also added a larger bathroom style grab handle to replace the flimsy suitcase handle provided by the manufacturer. Total cost was about $15 and a little time. Yes, I am a CARVO.......

@Steve Oom, That deck looks interesting. The ad states no tools required to put together. The bad thing is the price. I would like to see one first hand and maybe make a sketch of it. I believe I could cobble one together for a lot less money.

RV Deck and stairs

I needed stairs to the door I installed in my toy hauler.
I ended up buying the Hofmann deck (I have rails I don't use)
RV Products Decks and Stairs Home Page
which I have had for a year now. They are super sturdy
and everything slides together (no tools)
but I have to admit it is heavy to break down and cart around.
Sooo I searched again online and ordered this one that
seems lighter and more portable
Portable RV Decks - Port-A-Deck
which I should get in a couple weeks.
I will be carpeting the deck and stairs for the dogs
