Steps

I have the double step but rarely use it. First picture shows the step I purchased from Camping World.

Second picture shows steps extended next to purchased aluminum step. It's not that far of a reach for me. Also, if I used the double step more, I would buy one of those devices sold through CW that you place under the step for more support and less rocking of the trailer.

I've got the double factory step on my Overlander and love it!,

After spending hours having to do adapt a generic step from Camping World on my Minuet it was great to get the Overlander with a step already there. It does have a bit of too much flex whenever I use the second step but up till now I hardly even flip the second step out.

Funny, how most who have it don't use it and even go through the trouble of using a separate step and those who don't have it, like the Safari owners, want it? Grass is always greener, , , huh?

Ken,
Great photos on the other thread. What I was told was that the outriggers on the frame of the late model Safaris are not the same as the current or earlier Classic models, therfore, the steps like yours require significant frame member modification.

Sounded like too much metal work, so I stopped the investigation. I'd love to find out a definitive answer though!
