Folding step add-on to single step?

I noticed my single step has two holes on each side drilled for what I presume to be a double step. Anyone know where I can find a single folding step to bolt on to my existing single step to make a double step? I've searched unsuccessfully on the web. I'm trying to make a double step for as cheap as possible.

I could be wrong, but I'm not sure if that's possible. Your best and probably safest option would be just to buy a new double step. I have double 20" Flexco steps that are bent and want to replace. A new set is less than $100 and looks pretty easy to bolt on. I think there's only four bolts. Check your step manufacturer's site as well as etrailer.

I agree there's no easy bolt-on solution. The double's run wider than stock single-step. I found this unit online but had to modify a bit to fit my MAC 206st:
Robot Check

Total cost was $150. Well worth it for us since our dirt-to-first step was 13" on level ground, & even higher on sloping terrain. If you want instructions I'm happy to share specifics.

Do stairs measure to the inside width of the stair? I believe I measured the outside edge at 20 1/4.

I've been looking for a step that hooks onto the one that is already there. I found one vendor, but they want like $150 for this add-on and that's too rich for my "gifting to a friend" blood.

Seems there are not many RV junkyards around, thought I might be able to get a step and then frankenstein it onto my step.

I put a double step on mine, and like has been said there is adjustments that have to be made. The new step was a little wider, not a big problem just drill another hole. The biggest problem was the depth of the new one it wouldn't span to my next i beam. So i had to buy 2 pieces of flat steel to span the distance, and then bolt the new steps to the flat steel.

How much steel are we talking? Did you weld the steel to the beams and then bolt the step to the steel?

I made an add on step for Ms. April (Bombdoc's DW). Supposedly it works fine and is also adjustable.
