Was thinking about adding these to my trailer since I'm getting older and go by myself most the time. Looks like the Trick Steps are less likely to hit your vehicle if you have to turn sharply. Also if anybody has made some themselves? My brother was a welder and could probably make some if he had the right material. Thx for any advice.

There is an older gentleman at joe pool has what looks like a step ladder welded to his trailer and he insulated the arms as so not to hurt the boat, if it hit it. He is on a huge boat . He walks right up on the deck and is off to fish.

Easy Step. Easily the best upgrade I've made in many years. So much easier and safer to access and egress the boat from the ground. I have no problem with the step contacting my truck bumper.

I installed 2 of these on my Ranger and really like them. 70.00 total from Amazon

Call them, or send an email with your particulars. They may know exactly what does and doesn't fit for your boat/trailer combination. They have a ton of pictures with mounted units on different trailers. It's how I determined mine would work.

Easy steps are nice and will work om most trailers and the only thing I can say is they are heavy as heck so if you have a low rear end on your truck you best rethink the idea because like I said they are heavy build but don't get me wrong they are nice and work well. Call the east steps people and they will work with you. They are great people to deal with.
