Anyone replaced their outdoor step with a more useful option? No issue with mine except it seems the space could also be used for additional storage with a little thought. I know weight & balance are always a factor. Keeping an eye out.
How would you get into your camper if removed? I was just at a site with a grade down from the road. It was like 2.5 feet to get to the step. If it wasnít there it would have been a stretch up to get into the AS. My entry is toward the rear of the camper though. If yours is at the front, you could avoid my thought about it all.
Not getting this idea to compute. Remove it altogether? Or remove and use a portable step that is carried elsewhere? Then use the space where the step was to attach a storage box?
The rear door on the 22 is always subject to being backed into a space where the ground slope will make the door entry threshold too far off the ground for most to use it without a step. Maybe rethink this a little. Storage is important but not at the expense of egress safety. A portable step will likely lead to more issues than it solves.

This is what I purchased recently to replace the original steps I crushed by running the curbside in to - well, a curb.
Fit perfectly in the 4 holes from the original stairs on my 2012 27FB.
I did need to use my truckís spare jack and a block of wood to hold it up to the trailer and instead of using the bolts that came with it, I reused the original bolts (undamaged) to screw upward in to the threaded collars that receive the bolts from underneath.
After having the 3Ē lift kit installed, the step was uncomfortably high getting in and out of the trailer. I purchased a 2 step folding steel stair unit from Amazon and removed the old single step and installed the double step. The width was the same, but I had to drill two new rear holes in the new unit. I used the old stair set frame as a template for the new holes. I used a small hydraulic jack to hold the new stair set in place while I bolted it up.
