We are the new owners of a Reflection 303 RLS 5th wheel. Due to recent health setbacks affecting my left leg, back, etc. (as well as our old Lab's struggles with steps) I've been looking at steps that provide easier access. So far we like the RV-CO steps (maybe their porch later when we start taking more extended trips next year). Does anyone have comments/recommendations for providing stable and easier access steps?
Thanks all

Torklift glo step for us also. My wife has had both hips and knees replaced and these steps offer a safe and steady step for her. They offer a longer hand rail also but my wife said the one we have is OK.

I’ve yet to have a day I haven’t loved our Torklift Glowsteps. I debated for a while between these and MorRydes Step Above, deciding on Torkllifts since being in a place of limited clearances I can unfold them and safely get in our rig.

We store our rig, one time when I was out to put some things in it a check on it the boat next to us was so close I couldn’t get the door open. With MorRyde Steps I wouldn’t have been above to get inside. With Torklifts I could partially pull unfold them and get inside.

With limited mobility you can easily add another step if needed to help.

gmittan, I think you have the best idea so far, the platform at the top will be a big help. Just removing a little movement and increasing the angle, like the other brands mentioned, still makes you back down to open the door.

Torklift glow steps are the best.

To help out your 'old Lab" Glow Step offers the SafeStep which is a product that closes in the riser space between each step so the dog can go up easily and safely.
