Just one more thing to pack. Retired engineer here, I'll either find or build a double step for our 21.

Nothing wrong - it just isn't what we prefer!

If anyone would be willing to measure the distance from the ground to the top of the step on the 21 and let me know, that would be most appreciated! If I missed that somewhere, my apologies.

Thanks much!

Dave, I have ordered that step. Reace doesn't want to install it, but here's a comment from Larry (Little House Customs) who does install it on Escapes. Will let you know how it goes.

Just wondering if getting a single step with a bit more of a drop might be better. I have set up in spots where due to the unevenness of the site, that a second step would be nice, but as well, I have set up in places where the single step is closer to the ground than the step up to the trailer.

Maybe though, if you were mostly camping on nice flat sites, you could find the perfect step for the overall drop.

Actually wifey has problem EXITING the trailer with the big drop to the first step - no issues on entry. Surgery on both knees already, hence my quest for the double step instead of a stool.

I am interested to see the double step in place.

We had Reace install a grap handle on the inside(just below the light switch as you enter the trailer) to aid in exiting the trailer and it works out very well. Might be helpful to go along with your second step.
