i used the same step but put it on the side of my stinger.....well send you a picture when i have a chance...jim
I bought one just like that off eBay! It almost works great. The last step into the camper is a little to high for my wife to comfortably use as the Arrow interior floor is about 6 inches above the level of the bed. I think I will use it while travelling as I can also install the scissor steps with the hitch mount step in place if desired.

Carpeted folding steps
They work great! The dog goes up and down with no problem... and the grandkids haven't fallen yet... oh yeah, I also installed one of those fold out assist handles for mama....
Just my 2 cents for the day...

They always gave me the creeps, regardless.
I'm surprised they still manufacture them with all of the people falling off of them.

I often instruct a visitor exiting the camper to reach across to the left with their right hand, and grab the camper's ladder or assist handle, rotate 180 degrees, and back down the steps while watching their feet.
If I had such a tall camper, I'd want a porch too, just for a staging area.

However, because of this discussion, it occurred to me my single step would be better if stabilized with one or two of those aluminum RV jack stands.
There's a product made for that purpose:
Not a solution, but just another idea.

Very nice John...
I like this idea for the dogs. I have 2 small chi chi's so this would be great to keep them from falling thru the steps. I personally haven't had any issues with the steps. They don't bother me one bit.

First step from camper to bumper (10" wide), 14". That is 2 normal residential stairs +.
From the bumper to the ground was 28- 30" depending on the ground. This climb up and down from the bumper was done with 1 fold down stair( 2 rises of 15").
We are pretty agile but in the winter, things can get pretty slippery.
Replaced fold down step with a 4 step scissor stair and we are very happy with the settup. I am not saying this is the best of all situations but compared to before, this is very nice.
Sits really pretty on the ball and there is some room to adjust angles when we are on uneven ground.
