I need one of these foot thingys!

I saw this cool mat that slips over your step so you can scrape the dirt off your feet before entering the rig. The step on our Casita is 8" x 24" (approx), but I wonder what size step the 2017 21' Escape uses?

Hi: reddog2673... Can't really say for sure as we don't have an Escape 21. I would say that it's a big step up from a Casita though, but that depends if your instep or outta step. Alf

My notes from when I took a bazillion measurements of the display model of the 2017 21 footer states the step is 19.75" by 8"

Wow! I can't believe it is smaller than the Casita!

Thanks! I will wait before making the purchase.

To expand on Glenn's comment: Escape sells these step covers. We bought ours from them when we picked up our trailer.

Instead of step covers, we have two outdoor mats, one inside and one outside, that help get the mud off. Of course, we could use step covers also. The mats are sold at RV places but any outdoor mats will do.

We were advised the drainage holes in the step would wreak havoc on our dogs' claws, that the cover is a must for their benefit. (We didn't use one on the Casita. C'est la vie.) So far, it has worked okay.
