Upgrading Lippert One-Step for Two-Step Manual Pull Out Steps For Trailer


My camper currently has a Lippert one-step, but it is too high off the ground and we need two steps. The two step LC432682 is 1/4” narrower than the one step. The current step is bolted through the sides of the step’s mounting plates to a piece of steel that s down from the underside of the camper. Can I mount the two step to these brackets? Possibly adding a washer or two on each side to fill the gap? The current span between the holes is 3” on center. If this won’t work, how can I mount the two step?

The Lippert # LC432682 manual pull out two-step stairs is the closest match. Replacement steps only come in a few sizes. This step is 25-1/2" wide at the widest point. The next sizes are about 18" or 30". Using some washers seems like a good solution. You will likely have to drill new mounting holes to match your 3" on center holes. After that you will have a sturdy step rated for up to 300 pounds.

The perfect compliment to these steps is the Camco # CAM42177 grab handle. I have these same steps and handle on our trailer and could not be more please with them. the handle folts against the trailer with in transport. Padded handle keeps folded handle from marring your trailer.
