MorRyde Step above entry Steps love / hate

I have a love - hate relationship with the MorRyde entry steps installed on my 5er. I like the stability and that they are sized well for the unit but that's about it. Negatives are- you have to fiddle with adjusting the lower legs. If they are out too far the entry door will not close without hitting the top of the steps and potentially bending the door. Most sites are not level so this is a constant issue. Then I auto level thinking I'm gonna bend the steps or force them onto the door bottom. Pull into a rest area and the steps stick out practically into the next parking space. Then there's the dirt (and water issue if it's raining) that fall inside the unit when you lift them up inside. If you were a seasonal RVer and didn't move much I think they would be great. We rarely stay in one place over 1 week, the steps just annoy me. Has anyone changed them out for a traditional folding step, or am I the only love / hater?

I replaced our MorRyde steps with Tork Lift Uprising folding steps. They still go inside but we don't seem to have the issue of dirt getting inside like we did with the MorRyde. They have 5 steps instead of 4 making it a little easier to climb. There is an adjustment for the feet but I set them when I first got them installed and so far have not had to do any more adjusting even for temporary stops. We could not get the MorRyde steps to open in our tight rv garage as they would hit the wall. Not a problem with the Tork Lift. They are pricey but I was able to sell the MorRyde's for about half of what I paid for the Tork Lift.

Our 2011 rig's folding steel, 3 steps are worn out, several rivets have busted or or near breaking. One of the treads had a loose rivet that was causing the whole thing to feel unstable. I ordered the Lippert 4 step Aluminum folding step to replace it before one of us had a fall.

It should be here today from Amazon and I hope to get it installed ASAP as we leave in a week.

We decided to stay away from the inside steps for many of the same reasons already listed. I also like the Glow steps but they are way to expensive for my pocket book.

I replaced my OEM steps about 5 years ago with the GlowStep. My model fits the same place as the OEM steps did and they work great on tight or uneven sites. I would do it again in a minute and for full time use the price just wasn't an issue.

I bought the Moryd removable steps more so because of what you stated about the water etc. getting into the camper when you close em up. That was my main concern mainly because of huntin camp an all that wet clay an dirt

ARoamer… you state the EXACT reasons why I don’t want/hate those steps, and I’m glad I wasn’t forced into them like all new buyers are. I seriously think there should be an option. They work for some, they definitely don’t work for all. I have zero problems with the steps on my 2016.
I can’t even imagine my frustration with the Moreryde steps.
Just to start.. my steps hang off my driveway over the lawn that slopes, the constant adjusting would drive me crazy. Not to mention the feet sinking in when it gets wet.

Back to the drawing board! My Lippert quad steps came in today and they do not fit my rig. It would take some metal fabrication to make them fit so back to Amazon they go! Put my old steps back on until we get back from this trip.

Drat!

I had the same issue with the stairs,,,Dealer switched out the stairs with a 4 step model which this trailer needed for the height of it. Second set still had the door issue when leveled. Dealers can not comprehend why the doors will not close and simply slam them shut. Mine was so bad that the bottom of the door was out 1/2inch at the bottom and not sealed. The cure is very simple...need to add a little more bend on one of the bends. Took 15 with the use of a friends brake in his shop. The spec they are using is off a bit for the bends and that is why this issue exists. Mine are perfect now.

I like those, so what is the dimension I have been looking or looking at changing mines to these?

I have the A9005 model number. The width requirement for the 5th wheel is 28" between the door frame flanges. The 5 step will work with heights of 34 7/8" to 42 7/8" measured from the ground to the bottom of the door frame. I would assume this is measured with the 5th wheel fairly level. The TorkLift website has the information you need to help decide which model will work with yours. I would bet you could just call and ask. That is what I did.

Tweety's had the best price when I bought mine. I ordered it one afternoon and it was sitting at my door the next day.

I'm not sure exactly what I did as it has been a while but I had to modify the interior door facing trim as the interior connecting points are different than the MorRyde step.

They were the 28" wide Lippert Quad step. I already returned them and re-installed my old ones.

In order to get them on my rig, I would have had to get a L shaped bracket welded on the back of each side to clear the frame on my rig and hold it off and allow it to be attached to the frame on the bottom. Also the spacing on the top holes was 1/2 inch different from my old ones. We are headed out for a month long trip next and I could not get it done before we leave.

We specifically ordered our 5er with the traditional pull out steps, for access to unit when in storage and rest areas. Brought the Moryd removable steps for when we are in a campground for more than a day. Only issue found is making room for storing the removable step while traveling whether in one of the bays or the bed of the truck.

You wouldn't happen to have any pics would you?

Nevermind I went back you had them in the earlier post.

Storage is the only down fall. We have a 28ft SLX with no place to store them. Store em in the garage an haul em in the bed of truck. But the slight inconvenience is far out weighed by how solid they are. Next step may be to get that storage box they sell that fits were the factory steps are.

X2. Best investment we made. I just put them in the back of my truck when traveling.
