We've had a beige Petstep ramp for about 15 years (think we found it at a yard sale). Our dogs don't have problems with trailer steps, but when they are in need of a vet trip or are getting really old, they stop being able to navigate the big leap into the F-250. (It's also useful when we have to transport other people's dogs who have no idea how to do that.) We like the polymer construction because it's tough and won't ding like aluminum. But it's not narrow by any means (I don't think the dogs would use it if it were) and won't leave any steps available for you. You might be able to use it yourselves, as it supports up to 500 lbs, though lawyer-talk in the ad says "animal use only."

When our lab had an issue with her front shoulder, we bought a WeatherTech ramp. Comes in 3 pieces, lower ramp, middle ďlandingĒ snd upper ramp. Used for truck, home, trailer. Took about 10 minutes to train her to use. Strong enough o can use it.
Bulky though.

This may be a stupid idea, but Iím going to throw it out there. Any chance going to 5 steps instead of the 4 steps would make it easier for pup? When we replaced the 4 step solid steps on our new Paradigm with the 5 step Glowstep revolution steps, DH, who has Parkinsonís, commented that the 5 steps are easier for him to get up than the 4 steps were previously. He says itís because the rise of each step is smaller so he doesnít have to lift his foot/leg as high which can be difficult to do.

Used a 2 section telescoping dog ramp for the truck and camper when my 50# girl had her leg surgery. Also built one for our front porch (4 large wide steps), outdoor carpet runner gives enough traction. She was afraid of it at first but with a lease and coaxing she got used it. The store bought ones stress dog use only, not for humans. Will look for photos.
