Oversized trailer steps????

Howdy y'all.

I want to put bigger steps on my trailer. I wear a size 13 shoe and when I'm stepping down (facing out), less than half of my foot is on the step.
I have already gone skiing down the steps once while holding a toddler and landed on my side.
I see that the step assembly is welded to the frame, but it looks like the steps themselves could be replaced easily enough. It would be okay with me if they stick out a little when folded up.
Any ideas as to options?

40 Acre Mule, I'm right there with you. Being as I only wear a size 7 1/2 size shoe (dont believe what they say about guys with small feet, it aint true....LOL) But I've fallen off the step numerous times in the past year.

Cindy always blames it on the Makers Mark, but I beg to differ

So if you figure out how, please post pictures.

JohnB is on a distinguished road
IF you only have 1 step, this works

However on the new camper, there are 3 steps. And they are a whole lot smaller. Have not yet figured this one out on how to go larger. They are at least the better grade ones that are stonger. Some other brands put the cheaper ones on that are real wiggly.

I myself have to watch going down them. Up it OK

kanyonkitty is an unknown quantity at this point
Good Morning,

Don't know "IF" these would cure your problem, but they did for me. They are light weight, waterproof, and easy to slid into Sunny at the last minute before pulling out. They are "SPA" steps, cost was $85.00

Check with some pool dealers, as there are several companies that offer different types.

My trailer has the two step version. They are only about 8 inches deep and they have about an inch of overlap. So, going up, I can use the whole thing. But, going down, unless I drag the backs of my heels, I have less than 7 inches. And, when my foot slips past the 1st step, my toes are already past the second step, so I just ski right past it too.
The stand-alone plastic steps are an option, but I'd still need some really deep ones.
