Buy a 2 ft x 8 ft. rigid blue styrofoam panel with a thickness of about 2- 3/8".
Cut it into two panels 1' x 8'.
Split one panel into two 4' lengths.

Using a caulking gun, apply a few beads of panel caulk to bond them in pairs (hiding the printed faces).
Then bond the pair of 16" to one end of the pair of 32".
Then bond that assembly to one end of the pair of 48".
Wrap it up to protect from dirt, oil and water.
I used a roll of the plastic stretch film they sell for wrapping loose things together when you move.
The result is a light-weight three-step pathway for someone to get aboard your car or truck. No step
|Six pounds, easy to pick up one-handed, easy to store.|
I think I paid about $35 for the styrofoam, $6 for wrap from U-Haul, and $6 for the caulking, We had a caulking gun in the shed. I used a hand-saw to cut the panel which produced some clingy blue bits to clean up afterwards.
