I bought the treads at Lowe's. They are made to be replacement treads for your home. They already have a nice bull nose, and the trim along the front. I cut the to length, sanded, stained, sanded, and applied 5 layers of spray on polyurethane, sanding between coat. It took about 3 weeks, to let them dry good between each operation. I am really proud of how they turned out.
I got the pin nailer over against the edge, next to the carpet, and you cannot even see the tiny holes.
I debated taking the whole step assembly out of the camper and building a complete oak replacement, but in the end I just did the treads.
Next big task is to do glass tiles in the kitchen, behind the sink and range.
