Also sorry to hear of your wifes fall, I hope the injuries were not to severe and that she is recovering.
Just a thought, but are there no regulations regarding step heights on motorhomes. I seem to remember that buses were made to "kneel" to allow for a lower access height. I'm not suggesting that motorhomes "kneel" when we wish to enter/exit but I am wondering if Hymer should have put a lower step onto the vehicle and if there is legislation to that effect? Maybe someone can answer that question.
It may also be worth speaking to the supplying dealer to see if they can assist with a "subsidised" replacement double step, after all if they supply and fit a new one to your vehicle they would have your old (not very old) step to sell to someone as second-hand and would recover most of their cost, thus having two very happy customers.
Worth a try I feel.
Good luck and a speedy recovery to your wife.
