Lippert Solid Step

In looking at the various options to replace my factory "diving board" steps, I see that Lippert has this product. But I don't really see it available for sale anywhere? I think I like the design better than MorRyde's mainly because of the large platform step at the top. Anybody have one of these or know pricing?

Our new Alpine came with this step. We like it so far, it is very solid. There are people who say there will be problems raising and lowering them in tight stops like rest areas as they don't fold. We have not experienced that so far.

I'll keep what we have, it seems to me if it's raining and you put the steps in water goes in your camper along with dirt. I'll pass

So don't park in the water! I can't see how solid steps that land on the ground versus steps that float will make a difference about water getting in.

Sounds kind of logical to me--if they are wet/dirty and you flipt them up and over, where does the water/loose dirt go?

We love our Glowstep Revolution steps. They collapse and store much like the factory original steps but have adjustments to fit any terrain.

I like our four steps, there not a problem to unfold and fold up. I could see this being a problem for someone who has a problem with lifting or has limited arm movement.

This is exactly what I think. I don't want them on my next Fiver. It will be the fold up type that stay outside. Plus my balance is fine and the hanging steps on our three previous Fivers never gave me or the wife a problem.

I also do wonder about the water/mess on the Lippert- Its not like your going to throw em up there and fling water everywhere, though I could see it making a mess in the entryway. Though if its wet/muddy and rainy, I'm not particularly interested in being there.

The swinging out thing wouldn't be too bad... I would think one could just easily adjust where they are in the parking lane if needed as pulling in.

The Glow Step revolution seems like the best design to me, folds in like the original, but still gives you a better stepping height. The "glow" part I don't much care about.....

I can visualize they would be a good investment for our more hefty or disabled brethren.

We went with the GlowStep Revolution after trying the other options on the market. The space right inside our door has been used for different things on different trips.....anything from dog kennel to a Christmas Tree in a box! ( Stopped and picked it up for daughter on way home)

So seeing how that space could be utilized and the fact that wife was totally against folding wet, muddy steps up into the coach, the decision was easy.

Love the adjustability and sturdiness of the GlowStep. Having the 4th step make entry and exit for both us and our dogs easier even though we are not "hefty or disabled" LOL
