the problem is...

Most RV's are at the max width allowed (8'6"). Anything added to the side, even if it folds up, will put you over, and you would technically need a wide load permit.

And before you even think nobody will notice. The Missouri Highway Patrol is notorious around here for giving wide load ticket to pontoon boats owners. Most pontoons are 8'6" wide and the trailers pretty much fit entirely underneath them. If you add guide-on sticks or bunks, that will put you over 8'6" and they will pull you over with a quickness. I have guide-on sticks on mine, and I take them off if I ever have to tow on a public road.

It'd be really, really hard to do and keep you legal.

Talking DIY RV porch

You didn't read my query correctly. This would not be permanent. It would be for use while staying in a park for an extended period of time.

When in Naples a snowbird from Canada cane in with one he made. All bolts and screws.
Took him about an hour to put it up.

Camping World sells a metal stair and small porch set up. They sell different heights depending on the night of your door. We had one for a couple of years next to our fifth wheel.
