#234 came factory fitted with the dualcab side step. My darling wife is, for want of a better word, short and has requested an easier access option. Therefore I'm chasing an air step, if I can find one, in the meantime a foot stool will have to do.

Any other options and suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers, Tony

I had one for sale awhile ago no one wanted it so I trashed it ,but I can draw up the plans to make one as I replaced my old steel one with stainless, it was air operated but to unreliable , I have removed the air ram and switch from the pump and now it is just hand to lift up and down, if you want the parts I have let me know and a drawing. cheers peter

A couple of photo's would be nice thanks, Peter. I have wondered about a pull out step from under the current one.

Cheers, Tony

374 also just had the stretched metal step under the fuel tank, dangerous when wet.
I fitted a normal bus step that would normally be air operated and just use it manually. You need a latch mechanism to keep it folded up and a couple of chains to stop it going right down as well a some non slip tape on the chequerplate as they get slippery when wet.
there are a couple of side shots of 374 in the photo section and you can see the chains on the top step.
I can take better closeup ones in a couple of weeks when we get home if anyone wants them.
