SolidStep

On our last outing a huge rock took out our stock steps. I'm considering up grading to the Lippert SolidStep.

My wife has some joint issues and the bouncy stock steps make
entering and exiting the trailer a bit tough. I like the idea of having a more stable set of stairs.

Curious if anyone has used the SolidStep and if there are any issues.

TIA,
Steve

I think most of us that have upgraded have gone with the MorRyde step above which is similar to the lippert steps. Everyone seems to love the stability they offer. The only downside by some is the required space needed to deploy them. If you store your rig in a storage facility that has another trailer close to yours, you may not be able to open them to get inside

I looked at the MorRyde, but I need a double step and MorRyde starts at 3 steps. I store on my property so that isn't an issue for me.

Thanks for your input.

I think Torklift has a 2 step. I went from a 3 step to a 4 which made the Bride very happy. The Torklift is also very stable.

Question to anyone who has either the Mor-Ryde, Lippert, or other solid step model, if, when you are breaking camp, and it's raining and the steps are wet when the steps are closed, does that water on the steps drain inside the camper?

Put a 2 step on our X23B at the end of last season. I think this is where we got ours. https://www.rvautoparts.com/STP54-01...AaAkHOEALw_wcB Some people complain if the steps are dirty then it gets dumped into the camper. We always have a rug right inside the door, so if any thing is on the steps when you fold them up it falls on the rug.

I replaced my original 3 step "diving board" step with https://www.torklift.com/atv-marine-...tep-revolution

It never comes inside to drip and is rock solid regardless of the terrain. Love it.

The MorRyde came install on our 5th wheel but we haven't taken it out yet, the wife and I love it as do have a rug in the door way so I don't see it being a problem no more than the old style steps.

There is some water that will drip off the steps, but it's not bad. IMHO you get a lot more dirt inside than you do water.

As a "solution" DW found what I think is called a boot tray at Bed Bath & Beyond that we place at the door when raising the steps, then once the steps are up I reach under and pull the tray into the door opening - it fits perfectly between the jambs. It catches a TON of dirt, and if it's wet, any water that drips. The only thing you have to remember to do is push is back out of the door opening before deploying the steps or you'll crack it - don't ask me how I know
