Trailers, hitches and steps (have my cake and eat it too)
Kinda proud of how this turned out so imma post pictures. That bumper/step is made by Torklift for Palomino's bigger than mine truck campers. Forest River readily agreed to sell me one in exchange for a bucket of cash. I used the traditional method of installation, I "made it fit". Note the extra grab handle for the extra steps. Who doesn't love pictures?

Happy Glamping, Norman & Elna. 2008 Winnebago Adventurer 38J, W24, dozens of small thirsty ponies. Retired after 40 years wrenching on trucks! 2010 Ford Ranger toad with bicycles or KLR 650 in the back. Easy to spot an RVer, they always walk around with a screwdriver or wrench in one hand!
Yes that's the one. I'll have to look when I get home, I probably do have a before photo, I'm on a vacation trip now. It didn't have anything there before, I was carrying a three step ladder to set up at the back.
What did you have to do to mount the single step to the Left side of the bumper? The picture in the above link shows it centrally mounted.
It comes with three sets of mounting tabs already on it, left middle and right. I asked if I could buy a second step so I could put one on each side but they didn't have any extras at the time. It happens the torklift scissor steps are exactly the same width so it was easy for me to adapt a set of those to fit. I made my own topmost "scissor piece" on the steps out of some 1/4 aluminum stock so it would hang the way I wanted.
