Don't Like Lippert zFold Up Entry Steps

We bought a used 240RBS with the new Lippert steps that fold up into the doorway. Not a fan. In storage, I have to take the time to park extreme to one side or the steps won't let down without hitting fender of boat parked next to me. Then on the other side, I barely have room to open slide.

I may have to look into installing old style steps or maybe look at modifying these steps with some quick disconnects so they don't have to swing down.
I've also noticed if you get sand or dirt on steps, it ends up in the doorway of your camper.
I know the benefits of these new steps not rocking the camper as much, but still not a fan.

I agree with everything you stated, they are a PITA. I like the stability, that is it. I'd change ours out if it was easily done.

Has anyone changed out the steps????? Have they had any luck getting the factory to install the "old style" steps or the Torklift Glow steps? This is one of the biggest reasons that we haven't been able to get a new RV for we wouldn't be able to get into the rig when it is parked at home.

The one reason I would like to have those stairs is for the extra clearance it would give over the three outside steps on our Baja edition which gives extra clearance, but the extra stair actually hangs so much lower that I have less clearance. There are a couple of lakes we really like that have some deep puddles that I have not tried to see if it is going to be a problem. That will determine if we change over. Otherwise, I don't really see any big advantage to them.

I had the same issue with our Pinnacle. The steps were the MorRyde version but I did not have enough room to pull them down when I parked the Pinnacle in our garage. I went with the TorkLift Revolution Uprising steps which telescope out. Solved my problem and they have been trouble free since I got them almost 4 years ago. Not quite as stable as the solid ones as they do give just a little but not enough to hardly notice.

I installed this on my factory fold out steps. Not much movement while down. Didn't like the fold in the door steps and the TorkLift were too expensive.
