Hey Gooseberry, how do you compare the two? Looks like the first one you posted folds flatter. I have the second one but that lower step makes it a little more difficult to stow. I need all the height the second one has but like looks of the other one.
Thanks

I like it for that reason. It folds flat and goes behind the drivers seat real nice. The other thing is it has two handles on top and are labeled open and close so no pinched fingers.

The pups seem to like it

These looked familiar from a time I was searching for something similar for another purpose. It seems in general this type stool is still available in the 12" and lower heights---anything taller is not longer in stock or has been discontinued depending which site is visited.

Re: Need some sturdy stairs for my dog and self

HI, I am the original poster and thanks for all the ideas. I ordered and tried what I thought would be a great solution but just doesn't work for my dogs (petloader.com). It was a nice product, sturdy and USA made, but the smaller dog's hips just can't take the distance b/t steps and the larger dog is quite timid and even though I have him in agility he won't move from one step to another.

I'm thinking of trying a ramp for the dogs--I know the little one will go up it's the big one that may balk.

But I am also thinking of getting one of the folding steps recommended here for myself as I found out after my first stop at the gas station that reaching the windows for cleaning was not in my range of motion! I'm not super short but the van is up off the ground.

I really liked the step that fits in the receiver hitch but the way the van is laid out the dogs would then end up under the bed and that's not where I want them to stay.

Thanks.
Stephanie

Re: Need some sturdy stairs for my dog and self

The ramp works great, especially when we had older dogs that were arthritic. They did bulk at first but got used to it. Especially after using treats along the ramp to lure them up and down. If you are located in the San Diego area, you are more than welcome to borrow our's to see if it would work for you.
