I have the solid steps (came with my unit) and love them. As a matter of fact, I have two exit doors and two sets of the Solid Steps.
I have no issue opening or closing. No issues with the screen doors.
1) If someone parks close to me in my storage lot, I cannot open them. The do have to have enough clearance to swing out. Not typically an issue, but it has happened.
2) Cleaning and drying the steps is simple with a leaf blower. The one issue I have encountered is that I use the wrapping step carpeting. When that gets soaked, it will drip a fair bit of water. I put an old beach towel at the base of the steps when I fold them in and it addresses this issue. Without the carpet, the blower is adequate.
Bottom line, they are rock solid, can be adjusted easily on un-even ground. I am pleased with them.
