Enjoyment of the whispering winds, the zephyrs, the airstreams of the Sierra Nevada and Great Basin areas of the United States in a recreational vehicle.


Getting into and out of your rig safely should also be considered when you park and level your rig. It is an important aspect of camping that is often overlooked or taken for granted If you use the fold out steps attached to your rig, it may be a good idea to place something under them to help stabilize and support them during use. If you use a separate step you should make sure it sits solid on the ground and does not wobble and is a solid and safe place to step.

You should also try to make sure that there are no large gaps in the steps getting out of your rig. Try to create a setup with 6 to 8 inches separation between each step. Make sure each step is large enough for a good foothold whether facing into the rig or away from it. A handhold on the trailer to grab when using the steps is also a good idea.

A metal grate step and a metal step stool work well

The mechanical steps on the Motorhome needed some work

When the steps on your trailer get bent on the way to a rally, a step stool makes a good replacement

Gary got some great adjustable steps installed on his trailer.
