Morryde Step Above RV Steps!

Has anyone installed the new Morryde Step Above RV Steps?

Ordered a set for my 38RL today. Looks easy to install and your original steps stay in place.

More information can be found at this link:

You all take Care.

It was never shown what they looked like from inside, looks like they will stick into the entry way quite aways. Looks very study otherwise.

They are very sturdy and work well. I looked at them at the rally. Only reason I didn't go with them is they do take up room on the inside but my main concern is when they are wet and dirty it will all end up on your floor. Also if for some reason they are not latched correctly,when you open your door you might end up with a major headache when they hit you.

What difference does it make if it sticks into the RV quite aways? You can't ride in the RV going down the road! I don't know of anyone who retracts their steps when inside the RV.

We have an entry rug at the door to catch any dirt and water. If they are dirty, you can always wipe or rinse them off.

As for falling on you when you open the door. The steps are latched in place and are a tilted INWARD a little over center to prevent them from falling out on you.

I'm with you, they look like they would be more work. I can imagine it pouring down rain and I'm trying to wipe them off before putting them inside, I'm not sure a rug would solve that issue. I'm also not a fan of having to adjust the legs to make them level.

We were at the CA RV show yesterday. DRV had them on some of their trailers. They even had a hand rail attached down the one side of them. Very sturdy. Ken and Shelley had them on their trailer at the rally. Not for me though

Sometimes there are solutions in search of a problem...

I think with some planing from the manufactures theses could be made to slide under the floor. That would eleminarte the dirt and water from coming into the coach

Like Shane said, we have had ours for 2 months now.

So far, we have been lucky and not been in pouring rain when we are hooking up, but if the steps were wet, a good old beach towel thrown over them would help with a water issue.

They clean up real nice and easy - in fact, I decided not to put the step covers on them (i still have them on the old set).

They are very sturdy, and have found the leveling feet to come in handy, but for the most part - have not had to adjust them much. They also "lock into place" while in transit, and one of the things I tried before we bought was to see if I could reach the latch to release the steps. I can.

We've gotten inquiries at just about every park we've stayed at so far, including motorhome owners!

Like Dave said too, maybe they'd find a way to keep it 'outside' eventually, but MorRyde was thinking about an insert storage box for underneath the steps, once converted.
