Entry step support

The area in the entry door above the step has always been a weak spot in the older trailers. I have seen a lot with broken flooring there, or repaired with cross members to hold it up better. Ours flexed when any heavy person stepped in , more than I would like it to.

I found a local welding shop that fabricated a metal plate of 1/8" steel, and welded it in to the Airstream frame and the step's side frame. It is solid now inside with only a small expected flex to the floor.Just in time for open house at a couple of Spring Rallys.
