Travel Trailer Entry Steps

This article will focus on travel trailer entry steps and related step accessories. I aim to cover reviews and recommendations on a broad range of additional upgrades from entry/exit steps, platform steps, and entry step accessories.

Although today’s come loaded with standard features, there will always be other necessities and “must-haves” to complete your home away from home. Accessorizing your tow-behind RV goes a long way towards making your lifestyle more manageable, fun, and safe in a new or current motorhome or travel trailer.

If you are needing to replace or repair steps for your motorhome, please visit my repair/replace article for recommendations.

Upgrade your RV’s entryway steps with the euro-styled Alumi-Tread® manual RV steps by Lippert. These entry steps, with their sleek, stylish aesthetic and lightweight aluminum design, these pull-out steps are available in Triple and Quad configurations.

The anti-slip treads on each step make it easier and safer going in and out of your RV when your stairs are wet or slick. Plus, the built-in grab handle helps campers of all ages and abilities extend and deploy their steps hassle-free.

Available in  Triple or Quad assemblies from Amazon, the Alum-Tread, manual pull-out step comes with mounting brackets and all necessary installation hardware. Measure your RV’s entry height (ground to mounting point) to determine which assembly best fits your needs.

Lippert Solid Step Accessories

Lippert Solid Step Narrow Lift Assist Kit 25 “-28.9”

Make raising and lowering your Solid Step easier with the addition of the Solid Step Lift Assist Kit by Lippert™. Designed with integrated gas struts, the Lift Assist Kit lets you lift and lower even our largest Solid Step assembly with total ease. A single finger is all it takes to lift and lower your travel trailer entry steps.

RV owners and campers of all ages and abilities can store and deploy your Solid Step stairs safer and with more ease than ever by upgrading your entryway with the Lift Assist Kit.

The Solid Step Lift Assist Kit comes with (2) gas struts and all necessary mounting brackets and installation hardware needed. This kit is compatible with all Generation 3 Triple and Quad Solid Steps.

The Narrow Lift Assist Kit can accommodate entry door widths ranging from 25″ -28.9″, and the Wide Lift Assist Kit can accommodate door widths ranging from 29″ -32″. Please measure from frame to frame at the widest point of your entryway before purchasing your Lift Assist Kit.

Engineered to make your life on the road safe, convenient, and simple, the Solid Step is the upgrade your RV needs before your next big trip. Stop unfolding manual steps or worrying about wobbly steps that aren’t stabilized securely on the ground. The Lippert Solid Step gets you in and out of your RV with peace of mind.

Whether you need to park your camper on pavement, gravel, or uneven terrain out in the woods, the Solid Step’s leg extensions adjust individually so your steps can adapt to any surface. Additionally,  the recessed feet at the bottom of the step help prevent tripping hazards and allow maximum clearance for your camping spot.

Lippert Solid Step Entry Assist Handrail

Wet and slippery or nighttime conditions can make entering and exiting an RV a challenge, especially in the dark of night without illumination. The Solid Step Entry Assist Handrail by Lippert will give added support and safety in these tricky situations. Best of all, installation is quick and easy using the included handrail brackets, backing plate, and hardware.

The Solid Step entry assist handrail’s universal design fits any Generation 3 Triple or Quad Solid Step. The innovative engineering allows the handrail’s height to be adjusted to 5″ to accommodate an entry door width of up to 36″. The locking pins also keep the RV step handrail secured while in use and make it easy to remove if necessary quickly.

Most RV floorplans will allow the entry assist handrail to be left in place while the step is in storage mode — eliminating the need to remove it. Solid Step owners will undoubtedly love this great accessory because it adds security and stability to their RVing experience.

Stromberg Carlson Product P-102 Plastic Platform Step

This 24″ wide by 16″ deep plastic platform step by Stromberg Carlson has no-rust composite treads with four steel stringers that can support up to 500 lbs. The open grated tread surface allows campers to shed dirt and sand before entering their RV – keeping RV floors cleaner.

Works at two heights, 4.5″ (legs folded) and 8.25″ (legs extended). The legs have ball bearings and nylon bushings, ensuring easy movement when opening or closing the legs.  The 1.75″ square footplates provide good contact with the floor or ground surface.

Wrap-up

In summary, most RVs require entry/exit steps from the unit to the ground except for the smallest. And, I would venture to guess that, at a minimum, a portable platform would make entering and exiting an RV safer and effortless no matter its size.

Also, for safety’s sake, adding a cover to each step is an accessory to be considered.

 

Chip and Evi

There is no denying that RV travel is more popular today than it has ever been. With more than 485 locations, KOA reported that in 2020, there were more than 94.5 million camper households throughout North America. In the US, 48.2 million households camped at least once in 2020, including 10.1 million households that camped for the first time. Campers are more diverse than ever, with 60% of first-time campers in 2020 are from non-white groups, the highest rate since the inception of this report.
According to a Market Watch article published June 11, 2021, in an RVIA newsletter, RVing was hot in 2020. For example, well-known RV rental company Outdoorsy saw a 4,500% increase in bookings in 2020. And in 2021, there is reason to believe that this trend will continue. A recent survey by the RV Industry Association found that about three in 10 Americans hope to take an RV trip this year — 10% of whom have never done it before.
My wife Evi and I are in the 3 in 10 that plans to take an RV trip in 2021. As a matter of fact, since May 2021, we have been living in our RV full-time. We plan to live in our unit until the end of the year and then move into our permanent home. But, rest assured we will continue to take frequent trips in our motorhome.
With Covid 19 still in an issue in 2021, there is reason to believe travelers will want to venture out with family and close friends again. After all, there are over 4300 campgrounds in the USA to consider for your next group adventure.
