Hi all, I have a 1991 Hymer B564, does anyone know if it is possible to replace the manual step with an electric one?

Also any ideas on where to look for the parts, coastal motorhoms maybe?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hymie.

many many years! since I was a kid
its possible on most vans that have a manual fold out step, just make sure its well supported and run a feed from the van battery to the step. then you can fit an auto close relay for when you start the engine

parts are available from most motorhome parts suppliers or often cheaper on ebay

It's an Age Thing Tootles, you probably wouldn't understand what with you being so young and sprightly.:LOL:
