Like most motorhomes, ours came with small handles at the door for stability when entering or exiting the rig. We found these small handles were mounted too high for our grandchildren to reach. The kids love to camp with us, but they needed something to hold on to when climbing the steps. Even the larger collapsible handles were not long enough. I went to the hardware store and bought a grab bar — the kind usually installed in showers or tubs — and mounted it vertically next to our door. This not only extends low enough for the children to reach, but provides more area for adults to grab hold.
