10-Minute Tech: If the Shoe Fits

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Most trailers have folding steps outside the entry door. If you dislike tracking water and dirt inside or just want to reduce the number of shoes in the RV, consider making a portable outside shoe shelf under the extended steps. I made mine from 1/8-inch-thick plywood that’s 12 inches by 26½ inches and fits snugly on the existing angle irons underneath our trailer’s steps. A piece of corrugated plastic or Plexiglas could also work. Before getting under way, we remove the shelf and store it inside the entry door, ready for our next stop.
