SunTrekker steps

Back home with our (new to us) Suntrekker See post 25393 on the demountables for sale board )

Image


The full story is the first owner bought the bare shell from Island Plastics and to suit his own layout there are no windows on the nearside and the front window (the one that tends to leak), was never opened up. We also have a toilet / wetroom at the door end of the van complete with an ingenious shower.

Now to the purpose of the post at present the Suntrekker has a pretty inefficient step on the towbar - at our age (I am 71 this year Sandra is 4 years older than me) it is a bit of effort to get in and out - I have seen some references to folding steps - so what do people use and where can we buy them?

I've added the sales picture so they can see your camper,
now, your choices are;
A; buy scissor steps from Torklift or an importer here in UK...

Image

but they cost hundreds, aren't great & unless bolted on tend to go missing!

B; modify domestic kitchen steps, see here how its done

commonly available (some DIY skills required)


C; Combination of caravan ground step then fixed retractable step beneath rear door of camper giving you two steps height

You got to that camper before I could see it haha....I'd already missed it once from the owners who had it before.. Maybe it will be 3rd time lucky when you no longer need it.

Seemed like a good honest camper let me know if you ever think of selling in the future.

Cheers

I think you will be waiting a long time ;) The guy you missed buying it from fitted it out from a bare shell - excellent workmanship the only thing I can fault are the electrics. Turn of the century solution Inverter and lots of 240v I will be changing that to Solar panel, compressor fridge and LED lights.

Be patient :D
Suntrekker's come up for sale fairly often and probably a tribute to the fact they've not been manufactured in decade or so.

Hi Jonathan

A slightly belated Welcome to the Forum from me. Is it just a Suntrekker that you want & do you already own a single cab pick up?

I'll be selling my Suntrekker when I get around to it :? as I now have a Ranger Demountable . All in working order, 120w solar, 110ah battery. 12v/ Gas Fridge, 3burner gas hob, grill, 12v cold water feed, LED lighting . 12v sockets/ USB. 220v hookup. Custom racks for Sailboards/ Kayaks etc

In Dublin but Ryanair pretty cheap and if serious I could pickup/ drop-off at the Airport
Price as per my wife's instructions is €5000.
