The convenience of a perfectly level campsite with a patio pad can’t be overstated, but RV spots aren’t always on the level, particularly for those who frequent less-developed destinations. Some sites drop so much from one side to the other that you need an auxiliary step to reach the ground when exiting the RV. Recognizing the need for an extra step, RV-aftermarket supplier Stromberg Carlson Products offers a line of compact and sturdy stools for varying terrain.
The company’s latest offering is the Die-Cast Adjustable Platform Step (PA-275), available at Camping World. The four legs can be set to three height levels, and each leg can be adjusted independently for leveling on uneven ground. The 14-by-19-inch deck has sandpaper strips to prevent slipping, while wide, treaded foot pads help keep the legs from skidding or sinking. For compact storage, the legs fold and lock underneath the deck, and two handles make for easy carrying. The aluminum step is rated to hold an impressive 1,000 pounds and does double duty offering a leg up for reaching high cabinets and other lofty places in and out of the RV.
This step is light yet super sturdy, and the adjustable legs make it an ideal extra RV entry step on unlevel ground. Using the step in combination with the grab handle on my travel trailer makes coming and going easier and safer.
