Caravan steps can be a single step or double step. A lot of people tend to buy a single step (or a single step comes included with the caravan they purchase). Research shows though that a double step may be an easier option, it is much easier to step down onto a double step from your caravan and not so many people fall off a double step. Remember though, that your steps need to be light enough to carry, as well as light enough to stow inside the caravan when traveling. Steps are usually produced from either steel, aluminium or plastic, Steel will be the strongest of the three but it is also the heaviest. Aluminium and plastic tend to be lightweight but obviously Aluminium Step tend to be stronger than plastic.
A huge variety of steps to choose from.If you are looking for a cheap plastic step look at the Fiamma Original Step, The Milenco Aluminium Double Step with Rubber Treads is a budget priced good quality step, probably more satisfactory than the single plastic step. If you plan on keeping your caravan for some time you might think it worth investing in a motorized step that just folds back into the van when not in use. The Omni-Step Double 12V is a good example of motorized steps.
