Are there any caravan steps that have holes in them to stop rain collecting on treads? Our caravan came with steps but today it rained and I noticed how wet the steps were and how it would mean wet shoes going into the caravan!

Lots of different ones, with holes, without holes, single step, double step, plastic, metal, feet that sink in, bars that don't. Our plastic one is a single step with holes in. Our double step is metal with no holes, and feet that sink into the ground.

 

I quite fancy the Milenco double plastic step next - it's BIG - but it does have holes in it. .......! ;)

The basic one that comes free with a new caravan has holes see here.

 

And you can get a double-step version see here.

 

In metal there's this.

 

Google <caravan steps> and select <images> - there's loads!

Or have a mat just inside the van.

Why not cover the step with a rubber mat and remove it before using the step? Just a thought off the top of my head!

We bought 4 of these and fitted them to the legs it has stopped most of the sinking!

My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely

We had one of the big Milenso steps (till I drove off and left it on a French site!!) and it was a pain. It's very big and cumbersome which makes its more difficult to put in the caravan door. (that wasn't the reason I left it behind) if you are worried about water retention. ..it's twice as bad!! My carpet had puddles and muddy marks serpveral times.

 

Even my wife, who THOUGHT she needed a bigger area to tread was glad to see the back of it.

We've just returned home from visiting friends at a site nearby and they have this double step - I really liked it.

Yes when I saw one in the shop I thought it looked a bit too big. May just stick with what we have then ! :rolleyes:

I've spent a small fortune on steps over the last few years and the big plastic milenco twin step you guys are talking about is our favourite and I think the cheapest as we picked it up for £14. 95 just after it came out. It's stable and has a large tread area and just needs lifting on an angle to put through the door and stays put when travelling.
