I'm thinking of a couple of steps that will be like stairs. One end resting on floor the other against the platform. Two stringers and two threads.
I actually thought I'd build 2 half steps out of 2x4s and join them together on each side of a hole in the platform. Anything larger would be almost as big as the stool I use now and might block the bathroom door. I have one of those lovely corner beds that is in the back corner next to the bathroom.

I'm wondering if the step will extend away from the platform enough (3.5”) to make stepping on it feel right? Probably can’t figure that out without just doing it.

I'd suggest that you go to the first post on this thread and read 30-40 posts to see what we're all about. Then if you'd like to become an RV Mutant study up for the big test. It's only 2 questions long, but we expect you to score 100%.


that is how I connect with men - through their stuff showing up on my feed. I actually never message anyone after the first few. I simply don't have the time or interest. See, you hung in there so here we are.,

Coming across Texas on I-10 in about a week and a half. Any TX mutants still around or will you all be gone to AZ by then?

I think you might be able to bump into Jeannie and Dave, and Wayne and Earlene.

How about building it at the end of the bed or farther away from the bathroom door?

You need a diving platform!

We are here. Texas City, TX, about 40 miles South of Houston. Come on down.
