MoRryde StepAbove Stairs

Was looking at installing the MoRryde StepAbove aftermarket stair. Anyone have any long term experience w/ this product? Specifically the storage latch dependability while traveling rougher roads - read I-95N DC to Boston type road Thanks. Regards. Ed.

Storage latch? Do you mean for the steps or storage box?
Steps cannot go inboard because of the flange, the spring loaded latches to keep the steps from deploying have approx 3/4 inch of overlap on the flange. So when I store them, I check that the latches both spring out behind the flange. As long as the springs keep forcing the latches out, I don't forsee any issues.
18 months so far.

If you are looking to replace steps, have you considered the Torklift Revolution Uprising steps? This version stores the way the MoRrydes steps do but have several major differences:
1. They are not rigid sides, they have an accordion hinge setup and compress down to just the size of the steps during storage. However when extended, they are very rigid - 250lb guy jumping up and down on them and they don't move.
2. They only need 1 foot of space to deploy. In very tight quarters they can deploy more like a ladder for access to your rig.
3. Being made of all aluminum, they are very light.
4. Because the steps compress onto each other while still "outside", you should have fewer issues with "stuff" falling into your rig when you store the steps if they are dirty.
5. Steps can be easily removed to clean or any other reason.
6. Lots of easy adjustment to adapt to trailer to ground distances to both top step and bottom step to ground.



I have a set of the more traditional under body storage steps and am very happy with them. My DW has no trouble storing or deploying them.

If purchasing the steps look at how many steps you really need. We bought the 4 step based on the size chart and the bottom step is now an obstacle course.

On level ground I have to pull the trailer on to levelers so I can put the steps down and still close the door. Often times, we have to pull the adjustable feet or dig up the ground if the trailer is up on levels on drivers side. Lastly. When the steps are like this the bottom step is sitting so low that it throws you off when entering.

We love the steps but wished we had got the three step version. Click image for larger version
