Like Roy said, I think one of mine was direct fit, and one of them required drilling a few holes to match.

5/32" cobalt drill bit with cutting/tapping fluid preferable for drilling out old rivets.

I thought I would reassemble mine with nuts/bolts rather than rivets, but realized that some of the locations have to be rivets because the top and bottom steps overlap and will interfere with anything larger than a rivet.

While I had mine off the coach, I sanded and repainted the steps. Knocked the rust off the underside and used some rust-converter spray to see if that would help keep them healthier for a few years.

On reassembly, I had a little issue getting both steps and slides to move smoothly and having everything aligned. This may have mostly been because my steps were bent, and I was having to straighten the steps as well as aligning the new rails. With enough tweaking they work great now.

There's probably better advice around, but that's how I survived getting mine done.

As a general reminder to me, the steps don't retract when the house battery is disconnected .
