See my Aluminess Nerfs with steps I made to create a safe and useable platform. 1/8" aluminum diamond plate with a 90 degree bend pop riveted to the step and bolted to the body.

Hadn't planned on it. I'm not set up to mass produce anything. I could give you the dimension and you could have a sheet metal shop cut and bend a set. Pop rivets and self tapping sheet metal screws to attach.

Looks good Chris. Very helpful to have a nice platform climbing in and out of the van, especially after a few adult beverages So are you guys loving the larger space you have now?

Hi ya Dave. Not up and running yet! Bunk and fridge are in along with one cabinet. Getting the wiring done next month. Could be operational by end of November. Bigger project than I imagined but I'm happy with how it's coming along.
