A simple drop down support on the OEM steps will work very similarly without a huge expenditure of green stuff.

I changed out my OEM three step to a QuadraStep 4 step. Makes getting in so much easier. These tall trailers need 4 steps as OEM. Peggy didn't think they would make that much difference...until the first time she used them, instant convert.

Yeah, I think I'll give that a big pass. One more thing to mess with, and fix when it messes up.

I loved it (just kidding but it was funny) when I say a couple at a rest stop with the Mor Ryde solid steps out for a rest break. A moving truck semi came in beside them. They could not put the steps in due to the clearance needed.
I'm passing on those, too.
They should make them with a split in them similar to pull-down attic stairs then tight spots (including storage areas) may not be as problematic. But then I guess they probably would be as stable or light.

I've looked at the solid steps at the RV shows and they simply wouldn't work for us when the trailer is in storage. The trailers are close enough there wouldn't be enough room to lower the steps. They look like a good idea, but I'm not sure the execution will work at all times.

I have my 5th wheel in a storage bldg and the More Ryde would not have allowed me to put the steps out while in the bldg. but the Revolution telescopes and gives me access even when I am not centered in the bldg....
