Need ideas on how fill the steps on inside of sliding doors.

Recommended Posts

I need those precious inches of space that the steps inside the doors take up. Something to level it to the floor so a disco bed can rest there.

How about putting a section of plywood over it? 3/8"-1/2" is plenty thick enough to support a bed (probably even 1/4" since you're just covering a small area), and will take up minimal room overall. Plus you'll have the space between the steps and the plywood to store random small stuff, like a roll of paper towels or whatever. Is this a cargo van or passenger van? Cargo vans have a false floor there with a pretty decent amount of wasted space below it. I removed the false floor from mine a long time ago.

It’s a Cargo. Thanks for the idea!

Excuse me, we have a 2000 31' Sunnybrook 5th wheel. What good steps work on a rig that old? Also, do the steps fold up and swing up inside the door opening? I have found some information here but I am not sure about that:  https://www.rvweb.net/best-rv-steps-reviewed/

Do you have a photo of this please?  It would be nice to use it for something!

Thanks!

Here's some photos from this forum back in 2016 that I copied when I thought they might come in useful for working on my 2015. My apologies to the member who did the original post but I didn't think to make a notation at the time. Based on the file names I gave them at the time, they were from a 2015 cargo version.

I can say that the black van is mine, lol. I'm not sure on the white one with black false floor, I remember the pics but not the user.

It's the perfect place to smuggle illicit items across checkpoints.  If alcohol ever becomes banned again, I'm bootlegging with my van.
