Opps sorry OC, either my fingers got going too fast or it was that darn auto correct. I meant to say, do you have any pictures of the way that the extra step hooks to the camper steps? Just a side picture of the step removed would be great!

Don't have a side view, but at the end(back) of the tube that goes over the step, I made a 3/16" thick L to fit under the back of the step. In other words, it is a 1" wide hook.

Are you able to build a set of steps,,, and do you have room to take them with you ???
A set of 3 steps built out of wood,,, and carpeted,,, are better than any of these flimsy metal ones !!!

I was originally thinking that op's steps may have been incorrectly installed at the factory...then I found a pic of the 2013 with both stairs unfolded and I'm finding it hard to believe that Keystone thought it was acceptable to include just a 2 step stair for this trailer at the bathroom exterior door...seriously unacceptable. Then again, they've dropped the exterior bathroom door in subsequent models of this trailer. Black eye for Keystone on this one...

I could build a set, very easy as I was a carpenter for a custom home builder for 15 years. The problem would be the space to take them with....

I am going to send a link to this page to a friend who was a welder and still does some little odd jobs here and there. I like the setup that OC made, I am thinking about using his pics as a starting point and seeing where it may go from there.

Thanks everyone!

OldCoot, That looks awesome. Do you know how sturdy it is? I bought aftermarket steps and the bottom step is not sturdy at all. I have tried to put things under it but the ground has to be completely level for that to work. I would like to cut that third step off and do this.
Thanks for your help.
