To be fair I have gone back to the single step with a separate folding stool (as mentioned by others) for the bottom step. The bottom step was just too low sometimes.

that was my concern, I got a double step from Flexco and was going to modify it but when I put it in place to see how it would fit I realized that at times the bottom step would hit the ground before it was completely open. I also figured I would only gain an inch so my step from the top step to the floor of the Escape would be 10 inches instead of 11 inches. What I am going to try is to take a piece of 2X12, cut it the width of the step. Put some bolts thru it and thru the step to keep it aligned and use a wing nut on one of the bolts to hold it in. This way I can install it when I get where I am going and have a porch type step an 1.5 inch higher and 3 inches deeper.

double step

Thanks Doug, I'll stop thinking about that step, maybe plan B or C or D.

Could also rip it up real good the first time you forget to fold it back up when pulling out.

Anyway, nice work, Doug. All you need now is CP's step-light and, maybe this glue-on no-slip, no snag-um step tread.

Another option that I just picked up is a set of spa steps. Each step is 7" leaving about 6" more to enter the trailer. I'm hoping that they will work out with no installation necessary. http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...ilpage_o01_s00

Here's how the "spa steps" look giving you a third step when entering or exiting the Escape. I am pleased with these as they will allow my wife easier entry to the trailer.

Ah, so the top step is high enough to fit over the trailer step? Nice.

It actually "butts up" to the top step when it is not extended. We tried it out today and worked very well.

Hi Kevin . Can you tell us where you purchased your spa steps and are they heavy ? Pat
