steps?

I'm flipping the axles on my 5th wheel and I was wondering what I can do about the steps? they were already to high off the ground and now I've got the trailer sitting 4 inches higher...

And before I get attacked for flipping my axles, no I did not turn them upside down. I welded new perches to the top of the axle tube and moved them to under the springs, I also raised the springs to the middle hole on the frame as I didn't need that much height.

Thanks

They make folding steps that look like a little foot stool.

If your current steps are a triple, I wonder if changing to a quad step might help ?

Just changed to the quad step. We like the seven inch rise,but the last step is no closer to the ground than befor.

Actually it only has a two step... it was to high off the ground before I raised the trailer 4 inches. I'm thinking a triple step would work, now to find a used one.
