Plastic step insert

Does anyone know where to buy the plastic step insert used in classic motor homes? I have an 89 370 and am replacing the floor and would like a new one because my old one is cracked up.

Oliver,

Good question and I hope someone comes up with an answer. We could use a new one as well. Now I'm wondering if the trailers use the same arrangement.

AS must have changed when they made the fg models as my step area is wood sides and a rubber{plastic} covering about 1" thick board step.

Oliver.

That part was called a "step well" plastic.

The original Airstream part was 200232.

Unfortunately, it has not been available for many years.

Anyone besides me thinking that a trashed moho as a parts vehicle is the best bet...? m

Oliver,
I have a 310 and my step was all cracked up as well.
Looked everywhere for a replacement then decided to get one made up out of steel.
Best thing to do is bring the old one to a weld shop and get one welded out of steel or diamond plate.
My new one came out great plus I had it sprayed with pickup truck bedliner.
No rust etc....cost me about $300 including getting it sprayed with the bedliner best way to go for sure.
Hope this helps.
Don

Thumbs up Plastic step insert

Screws in my step insert were rusty, so I pulled them out to replace. During the process, I found that AS had missed caulking the mount toward the interior of the coach. So I silicone caulked all around the insert both from top and bottom. The interior edge did not rest on the floor as it should have, so I leveled it with black caulk so stepping on it would not break the plastic. If mine ever breaks up, I think I could fashion one out of aluminum diamond plate to replace the plastic. A good tape measure and make a cardboard mock-up would make it easier. My .02 worth.
