Trailer steps

I have a Jayco Eagle HT 30.5 MBOK FW that has the typical folding steel steps that I would like to upgrade. The two that I am considering is the Solid Step by Leppert and the Step Above by MorRyde. Has anyone installed either one of these? Both seem comparable but the Solid Step had a much wider top step at the door way that makes the first step onto the steps feel more stable. Any pros or cons on either?

We have neither so can't help there but friends have MoRyde and like them. One drawback of any of this type of step is anything that you don't clean off (hard to get ahead of rain) falls inside the camper when you fold them up. For that reason we're staying with the standard step.

If you plan to travel on a ferry with your Rv, and need to access inside the Rv for pets etc, there is usually not room to deploy that style of steps. For that reason and the other mentioned we opted for the folding steps.

We have the Step Above by MorRyde and love it. Very stable and can be adjusted for different situations. Added the hand rail that cost about $55.00 and works great!

A good whisk broom and drying off the steps which is rarely needed......very happy with the MorRyde steps!! But to each their own.

Neither of these are concern for me, but there is also a quick connect option for the MORryde steps. That way they attach and detach instead of swinging in.

You might want to take a look at these. A couple of members on here have them and like them. https://www.torklift.com/rv/glowstep-revolution

I installed these steps a little more than a year ago and the Bride loves them (I like them too). They fit in the existing stairway opening and work much the same way. When open they have a pair of legs that rest on the ground making them very stable. Installation took a couple of hours but a second pair of hands would have shortened that. I havenít had any issues with uneven ground. When deployed you donít have to pull them to the full extent which allows them to be used in tighter situations.
Very pleased with ours.
