Sometimes when we setup if the ground is not level the electric 2 steps are still pretty high. It has mostly to do with the topography of where we set up it isn't always an issue. Do they make an add on step you can add or should we just get a portable step?

With our trailer, we use one of these: Camco Step

It's surprisingly good quality, very stable and fairly large. It also adjusts for height quite a bit.

That's makes 3x.

There are imitations around but none built as well as this one.

I use a portable step, but was able to find a wide one. There were 2 sizes in the style I bought.

I built a large step 30x24x6 inches to help my mom get into the Suburban. Since it is already in the back of the truck I use it as an additional trailer step as needed.

I made the step large so people can step up and stand on it before thinking about taking the next step. It's also nice to just come down the stairs and not really think about placing my foot correctly on a small stool.

I'm not sure how much room you would have to store a step in a class A. But I would build a step as large as I could comfortably transport and handle.
