Thanks to our good friend, Jim Mossman, we now have a set of wood steps for our RV.  He is so ingenious and came up with a pattern that interlock and only the steps themselves have any screws in them.  Such a smart guy!

So here are the finished steps, in place and looking good!!!


This will make it much more comfortable to go up and down (or is it in and out?) our RV while we are gate guarding.  Even though we sit outside most of the day to minimize going in and out of the rig, after dark when we go inside, I still average going up and down the stairs 40-50 times a night. 

We’ll be able to use these steps in Colorado this summer also when we camphost, so that will be nice.  As any RVer will tell you those metal RV steps get bouncy.  Wood steps gives you a solid feeling and is easier on the knees and hips.  I’m happy!!!

Thank you, Jim Mossman….

Remember, you are loved.

  1. Those steps look great and the portability of it is ingenious. He is a good friend.

    Perhaps maybe he could devise a sturdy handrail to attach to them. It sure would make it a lot safer for everyone. Just a thought.

    Happy New Year to all of you and best wishes for a great 2013.

    1. I use the rail on the RV to get down the steps if I need it.

  2. That's a nifty design. Bet he could have a small business there if he wanted to.

  3. Hi Bobbie and Jim,
    sounds like a quiet Holiday season for you.
    the steps are wonderful!
    You, too, are loved!

  4. Thanks Bobbie for a nice post. Would suggest painting the insides as well.

  5. We have had steps for a couple years now, they sure make it nicer getting in and out, esp when you have a 100# lab bouncing in and out. The design is neat and looks easy and quick to put together. Happy New Year to you both, enjoy reading your blog.
