On my 12 there are just 4 bolts through the floor.
Four bolts to the frame, two bolts to the floor, and there are two supporting brackets attached to the frame which seems to be separate from the steps but is definitely part of the support structure (two bolts to the frame for each, can only see one bolt in the pictures below).
Pictures make everything better, so ...
Steps closed, as for traveling:
First step open, second step folded on top. Note the footprints
Second step down, as far as it goes.
In that pic, the trailer is slightly nose down to level it, curb height is normal city curb, 5-6 inches perhaps. Even without being leveled, the curb height is way too high to drop the step all the way. If I park with the door at my driveway, the bottom step will just kiss the concrete approach when I step on it.
