QuadStep Hickory Springs (HS)

I'm interested in shortening the rise in my entry steps to my 2008 Designer. I have the three HS entry steps. I've been looking at the QuadStep by Hickory Springs (HS) as they look tough and well made. My question, has anyone installed these steps? Do they bolt right in, or are modifications required? Is it worth doing? There are other 4 steps, but they look a bit flimsy.

Getting older is not a whole lot of fun and we got to do what we got to do...

Keep the shiny side up and keep on trucking.

MerkAir, I have no experience with changing out steps. I know what you mean as we had too many steps in our 5er. We traded it for a travel trailer just to eliminate some of the inside steps. Welcome to the forum.

MerkAir, I also thought of changing out the stairs. I looked at some other brands as I wasn't happy with the quality of Hickory Springs. I think they are Cheap compared to some other brands. I am still looking !!!

Just my $ .02

Thank you both for your inputs, I do appreciate your replies. I'd like to also hear from anyone who has replaced a three step with a four. What was the outcome of this change, good and bad. Maybe mention the brand of step that you chose and was it a good choice.

Thanks again for your comments...Keep the shiny side up.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum Merkair! Unfortunately, we aren't lucky enough to have a 5'er to know the answers about steps, but glad you found the forum!
