    step rugs

    Anyone use 3 step rugs - we're having trouble closing up our steps cause they're too thick. Any solution besides taking one off? Our steps are 8 1/8 inches between steps; I don't know if there is a standard distance. We got the plush ones from Camping World.

    Re: step rugs

    I found that I couldn't fold the steps (4 level) with a carpet on the 2nd and 3rd steps, so I just have them on the top and bottom ones. Hadn't thought about leaving them on while we're "in residence" for a couple of weeks, and taking them off when we leave. Or just leaving the steps extended for the summer... DUH!

    I have a Walmart special on the bottom step and it closes, no problem. Walmart was 1/2 the price of Cmpng Wrld. They only have grey however.

    gosh Tandt - our Wally World doesn't sell them - very limited camping supplies . We use the CW ones without any problems (3 steps), leaving them on all the time. Overtime, the matting crushes down with the steady traffic.

    We got 3 sets from Menards for a buck a piece and put grommets in and used tie-wraps to fasten them. Ended up less than $5.oo a set

    Not that it helps you, but I have the Wally World specials on all 4 steps, and they fold fine...

    Re: step rugs

    We bought our step rugs at CamperLand in Tulsa , OK. when we took delivery on our BH 3585RL. When I put them on [4steps] the steps would not fold either. I took the bottom rug off and the steps now fold, tight but fold all the way.. The rugs are held to gether with large zip ties. I had pulled thme all together until they met in the middle. The bottom one that I took off was torn at the eye.. The ones I have seen at our local Camper World look and feel to be thinner than the ones I put on..
