We just purchased a 33 ft. Cedar Creek Silverback Fifth Wheel. BUT, our problem is we have a sheltie dog, and the steps are so high that he stubbles going up them. We afriad of not only he getting hurt, but falling through the back of them also. He weighs about 30 lbs. We need something not only for him to use but his parents...US humans also to with stand our weight also. Any suggestions or websites of steps would be appreciated. Alot of the steps we have seen will hold dogs but not humans. Thanks BARB

Barbjac425, welcome to irv2
Have use a step sold by CW that has four legs that will adjust height to 4" or just unfold and 2" is wider than step and 16" deep. Good plateform makes it easy for wife and our hot dog. Sells for about $79 sometimes on sale for $69. Enjoy the forums and post often. "007"

Barbjac425, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. Congratulations on your new fifth wheel. I am sure youu will enjoy this website as much as you enjoy taking out the Cedar Creek. Wish I could help out with the step issue right now but I would have to do some reasearch myself. You will need to know the average height of the floor from the ground and then try to find a set that has one more tread than you presently have. This would put the first one closer to the ground and then each closer together than your present steps. Good luck and enjoy!

Barb, Welcome to the IRV2 website, and congratulations on your purchase of a Cedar Creek fifth wheel, look forward to hearing from you on the forum, sorry I can't help you on your dog issue, we don't have any experience having a pet in an RV. Ed.S

We bought a ramp that goes from doorway edge to the ground and its' length is adjustable.

It is carpeted, easy to set up and humans can use it up to about 200 lbs as I recall.

It wasn't terribly expensive and very well made.
GoodLuck
