Entry to Escape 13

The distance from the floor of our Escape 13 to the ground is 14 inches, so we bought a small folding step stool to make exit and entry easier.

Old Step

Unfortunately, while this stool matched the Ladybug theme, it was not very strong, and collapsed when my wife was leaving the trailer carrying a load.

So we bought this step stool:

New Step

More detail here:

And when we were in Chilliwack we had a grab bar installed -- you can see the new look here.

New Step and Grab Bar

This seems to be a good solution.

Looks good and solid Brian. That step looks really stable.
I bet it would even withstand Glenn climbing in after a bunch of wobbly pops around the campfire.

Jim:

Step has been tested to 1000 pounds, which should be strong enough. I hope to meet Glenn at the Escape Rally in Merritt in June, if not sooner.

The meet is less then 2 months away now. It definitely will be great to meet those I haven't yet.
