Step Covers

I am looking for new covers for the outside steps. The astroturf ones don't last long and are, well, unattractive. Any ideas?

Great thread I was wondering the same. QDPRN, I am going to latch on to your thread if you don't mind.

I have always used the ones they have at CampingWorld. You can get either the curved ones or the square ones. They have always worked fine for me. Also I use a conventional door mat just below the first step.

Keep in mind that step covers hold in moisture causing your step to rust faster than they would if left uncovered.

Good point, also if you get into cold weather, moisture in the mats can freeze creating a little slip-n-slide! I'd prefer to have a door mat with really good "crud scraping" ability and bare steps. Something more like a 2 inch deep astroturf that will drain moisture through.

PS - ever notice how more and more RV parks are requiring patio rugs that let sun and moisture to go through them so that the next camper doesn't get a muddy puddle? An overdue requirement IMHO.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Use this on everything I don't want things to slip on.....incl the steps.

Believe it or not I have for years used cheap ribbed-carpet/rubber-backed doormats from any local retailer! Cut 'em into two pieces, wrap around step tread(s) and secure with cable ties underneath from edge to edge. They look pretty good, and work great, and cost is negligible.
