Fleetwood Bounder steps

I just purchased a z2008 fleetwood bounder 38v and i am wanting to change the outside power steps, the problem i am having is my coach has 2 steps and i want to switch to a step with 3 steps to get me a little closer to the ground, i donít want to use a portable step and the parts places i have been in touch with canít seem to tell me if they will fit, anyone else done this before?

It looks like they could be Kwikee steps. Hard to tell from the pics I found online. Measure the width of the step first. Then measure the distance from the mounting plate under the RV to the ground. Then contact Etrailer and ask them if there is a step for that configuration. I'm afraid that you don't have enough distance from the mounting plate to the ground, less ground clearance required by the step for 3 steps.

A third step would limit your proximity to curbs and sidewalks. You could end up regretting the switch.

Measure the distance from the bottom step to the upper step. The distance for the three step will be the same. Let the step out and measure from the bottom step to the ground. You will need about two

extra inches for the three step to clear.

Thanks guys!
It just seems that with 2 steps out it is still quite a distance to the ground

Let me ask a question! Is your unit diesel w/air bags? If so are you looking at the steps with air bags full or empty. That will change the height alot.
