Solid steps

Iíve been thinking about installing a set of solid steps on my Jayco Eagle HT 27.5. Has anyone here installed them on their RV ? I was looking at the Mor/ryde or the Lippert Components steps but not sure which one is the better option. Also wondering if I would need the 3 or 4 step version. Thanks for any help

I’ve installed 2 sets of MorRyde steps in a TT. The steps you will need is based on threshold height on level ground. 25-29” height 2 step, 30-36” 3 step and 36+ 4 step. Believe me this is critical. To short, the first step is to far from the ground, to long steps won’t be at proper angle and you cannot shut the door.
Other needs to determine which steps is door width and stair height 8” or 9”
The are a great addition if you get the proper one for your RV.

I installed the MORryde Step Above steps on my TT and been very happy with them.

There is an Installation Qualifier Form on their website which will guide you on which style steps will be right for your RV.

Lippert Solid Steps on my 18RBM. Chose the Lippert steps as the threshold height is 21" if my memory serves me well.


Lippert sent an email a couple of days ago with free shipping on the Solid Steps.

I installed the Solid Step quad (wide) and lift myself on my Eagle HT 26.5RLDS. You will need the wide version. I know the 3 step won't work, because they initially sent me the 3 step narrow steps. It was a long way down from the third step.

When I bought mine, CW was including the list assist for free. Not sure about now.

Here is a picture on the incline at my storage parking spot. In the spot, the front of the camper is about a half foot lower than the back, due to the incline. Even with that I have a couple of holes to go.

The larger top step is awesome for me. I have several ortho issues and it makes it much easier to step in and out of the camper.

I will be modifying or changing out the pins that came with the steps this season. At the very least, I would recommend grinding the pin into more of a pointed tip to ease putting it back in.
Pictures of my final pin solution sometime later once I actually do that.....

Hope this helps.

Like MadMaxMutt said my wife loves the larger first step.

Madmaxmutt do you remember what the measurement from your threshold to the ground was ? I measured mine today just to get a rough idea what I’m looking at and it was 34-1/4” from threshold down and 29-1/4” wide. According to Lipperts website I would use the 3 step model. Just wondering thanks

I know mine was just above the lower limit of the quad step. Is your trailer level and on level ground?

I was at my local dealer this week. None of the new models had three step versions, all four step.

It’s not a 100% level but I used a level on the threshold and a level on the ground and then added the thickness of the level on the ground so it can’t be off more than a half an inch. I’ll probably wait till I move it and remeasure to make sure before I order it. Thanks for the help

We had the dealer install the Morryde steps and we love them. Initially they installed the 3 step set and it was too short, treads leaned, then they put in the 4 step set and they are amazing!

I take back what I said earlier. The HTs with the door in the middle are three step Moryde equipped at the dealer. But, it still looks like that first step is a big one. I'll post pictures this afternoon.

Here the promised pictures, unfortunately I didn't notice all the dog nose prints on the window . . . . So, they are not very good.


These are the three HTs with doors mid-trailer that are there. As you can see the first step is tall. I think these Morrydes have a higher step to step than mine have also. At least it looks like it.

Thanks for the pictures. The bottom step does seem pretty steep

Just received my lippert solid steps and wondering if the Jayco Eagle HTís have enough support in the floor for the wood screws they provided or if anyone used the plate and bolts included in the package ? I havenít removed my old steps and canít get under the doorway to peel the wrap back with the steps in the way. Thanks for any help

Nope, just screw into the plywood. It is solid.
