I don't follow what the pile has to do this?

Sometimes my bad knee makes me exit and enter sideways, thus the pole is helpful, otherwise in the first Escape several of us mounted an additional assist handles inside to aid in entering and exiting. Some day, Jim, you too may be grabbing that pole more for assistance.

There is one mounted on the outside that would be handy. Isn't the stripper pole too far inside to be of assistance.

I'm not going to get old. I turn 59 for the second time this year and think I will just stay there.

If I am exiting the trailer with 2 beers, I find the first step with just my foot. If I am only carrying 1 beer, I put the beer in my left hand and my right hand finds the pole for guidance. Knock on wood, I've yet to spill a beer while ascending or descending the step

Ah, holding pattern at 59. So that's your secret....
