You're right was just having trouble seeing that in my mind. But as my wife says, there's a lot I don't understand. Again, great idea

My biggest fear is a "one too many beers" guest stepping in the hole and damaging my screen.

Gritz,
I've been kicking around Google, and haven't yet found a source for that edge piece...
Could you please post us a link to the place that you got yours from?

You might want to leave one end easy to undo in case you ever have to replace the wood? Just a thought.

Replace the wood?
It's probably the most solid part of the rig!

Board is marine plywood with the underside overlayed with 1/2' white oak. I can flip it upside down at camp and use it as a huge cutting board.

I just got done doing this to my Class C. Pretty simple job. Used piece of scrap 3/8" plywood, carpeted and put piece of paracord on inside end to lift off. Will store behind drivers seat. Now I don't have to worry about little dogs falling in that space and when camped, nice extra space to stand. Holds my 185 lb. weight well.

I use a baby gate. My 14 yo chihuahua is also blind and deaf.

I used 3/4Ē plywood as well. I have kids age 3 and 5, so definitely needed to cover stairs

It turns out, you can cut it in one piece and itís almost the same exact size as the floor space under the dinette. At least in our ace 30.2.

We only pull ours out when we will be inside for a while or overnight. But, I can raise it up vertically next to the sofa and because of where the hand rail is, it keeps it in place against the sofa.
