The steps arrived in perfect condition. I was afraid the weight might be too much for me the handle when putting it together, but I had no problems (I weigh 105 lbs.). I initially had difficulty understanding how to stand it upright, but once I got that, it went smoothly. It sits very securely, and makes going in and out of my little vintage camper safe. I like that it can be removed and stored in the winter months.


Comments
Ive had the steps for a little over a year and they remain in great condition. We live in a harsh winter area, so I put the steps under the deck for the winter months. I have absolutely no regrets about the purchase.

I was amazed at the fast shipping, we ordered on Saturday and received the steps on Wednesday. A+++. I set up the stairs right away without too much problem. The back right leg looking from the front is twisted slightly and made the bolts difficult to install for the landing. I took a couple of photos but hard to see. Entering and exiting the trailer with the new stairway is much easier and we have been looking for something portable and sturdy for our Grand Design Imagine and we hope this will do.


Comments
We have been very satisfied with the steps, they create a solid platform to enter and exit the trailer, much easier than the stock steps. The only thing is although portable they are awkward to transport. For us they work best when staying an extended time at a location. Great value and quality I would buy again.

The description was perfect & so it fit exactly as we anticipated. Loved that it was 3/4 put together already - we just had to unfold it & put in 8 bolts. Very awesome! They shipped it to us in Maui, which was awesome, but the box came quite beat up with one of the edges protruding. However, it was all fine & perfect.

I am going to rate this item excellent. These steps are very sturdy. Not light however at 70 pounds but they do fold up for transporting. We bought the steps to make it easier for our 15 year old Border Collie to get in and out of the trailer. The steps and landing are covered with traction material and prevents her from slipping on the steps. The steps are well made and easy to assemble. I would buy these again; however......... My only complaint is the poor packaging provided by the manufacturer. It does not protect the contents during shipping. This is no fault of etrailer or UPS. The staples that hold the two sides of the box together really beat up the paint job in numerous spots and the bolts were strewn all over the inside of the box, likely adding to the paint damage. I have posted a message on Stromberg Carlson's website as they should be providing better protection in the packaging for their products especially heavy ones such as this. I will keep the steps as I really like them, but I was disappointed in seeing the damaged paint, even if it is only cosmetic. I have not heard back from the manufacturer. Etrailer had the steps in stock and the free UPS shipping was a bonus. I had them within three business days. I have bought from etrailer in the past and will do so in the future.

So easy to setup, took just a few minutes. We have our steps sideways, so we will be adding yellow chain link at the top of the platform so no one takes a left turn off the steps. I understand all previous shipping comments. Shipping is difficult because the steps are heavy and the box is large and difficult to move around. Ours came with a few scrapes on the edge but nothing that can't be touched up.


Comments
Stairs are still in good shape. We live in our trailer full time now and only move around a few times a year. The stairs fold easily for storage or if we take them with us.

Just got the new steps today so have not gotten to test drive them in "real" camping operations but the steps are exactly what we were looking for. The steps on our new camper are adequate but pretty steep. The new stand-alone steps are a lot more user friendly and the landing at the top makes a great platform when going in and out. Thanks for such a durable and great product.

Many prior reviews mentioned the poor packing of these steps and the parts that were missing as a result of the packing damage. Thanks to Kim and the added packing the steps arrived with no damage and all the parts were in the package and it arrived promptly. Kim was very knowledgeable, prompt, concerned and showed that she wanted the business. Being that we are in a very large and active campground I am sure many here will stop ro see the steps. I will definately recommend etrailer and Kim. I bought these steps as both me and my wife are in our 80s and find the steps on our Park Model trailer getting hard to handle. Now we can continue camping in comfort and with safety going up and down the stairs. Assembly was easy. The hadrest part was to open the steps from a flat position but once opened all went smoothly and quickly.


Comments
Very good. Sure makes getting into and out of the trailer easy and safe especilly as we get on in years. Only thing I would like to see added is a rubber pad for under the steps to the ground. We are on a concrete pad and the steps have a way to move easily but not more that a 1/4 inch and easy to reposition.

This step unit is just what we needed for our entrance to our park model/destination trailer. It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy. The landing at the top is a great feature. It is now so much easier to go in and out - for the old lady and for our elderly dog. We looked at fiberglass, but the heavy, chunky designs were ugly. This open unit does not detract from the trailer. The price was also reasonable. Most pre-fab RV steps are a total rip-off price-wise. I highly recommend this product.


Comments
Our step unit has been great as described above. After one year, my only negative is that the black paint should be more durable and also needs a clear coat all over it against the weather. Since these steps sit out all year in EVERY type of weather, here in Ohio, the paint needs more attention. It has gotten chalky and rubs off quite a bit, every time you have to clean off bird pings or mud, etc.We may have to coat the steps ourselves to preserve the paint for the years to come.Im not sure why other folks had so much trouble putting it together. We had very little trouble when we followed the directions. Our box arrived pretty beat up as well, but not as bad as some others. You may want to pad around the unit so the box doesnt collapse, put a second, thicker carton around the package and use a different carrier.

These are wonderful steps! Very sturdy, extremely easy to assemble and very secure. I use them to access my pool deck and they are PERFECT, strong, slip proof (even in wet, bare feet) and step width and spacing is perfect for older fat person such as myself! They shipped quickly and box was slightly banged up, I would like to suggest that shippers use two fiberglass bonded tapes one wrapped horizontally and the other wrapper vertically to make handling during shipping slightly easier (gives someone something to grip when moving box). Thanks so much for such a great product!


Comments
This product is FABULOUS! It is very stable, weather resistant, and secure. I cant imagine getting up to my pool deck any other way now! Greatengineering and very good structurally...I am a fatty and this is a wonderful staircase for me to use! Thank you! Keep up the good work!

We spent 3 weeks in Desert hot springs Ca. and loved our steps. My husband has a bad knee and it was easier for him to get in and out and the dogs did so much better than using the regular trailer steps. It folded up enough (4 step model) to barely squeak unter the storage bin. The three step would have been a snap to store. It was packaged well, and my only complant was that there were no nuts and bolts etc for assembly and we had to go to the hardware store before being able to use it. Will get pics later


Comments
Love our stairs. Husband has knee issues and they are so much better than the RV steps. Getting easier to set up each time we go.

These steps are stable. Have wide steps. A sturdy hand rail. It doesn't bounce or move. We love them. Would buy them again. We are in our early 60's so sturdy with a big handrail is a necessity, but we have found that the younger kids that run none stop need them more than we do. They have worked great for our large family.

The stairs themselves are great, they will make it easier for us and our dogs to get in and out of our 5th wheel. The stairs also arrived quickly, just under a week after the order. We are just happy everything arrived ok and complete because the box was in terrible shape when it arrived. It was beat up and partially torn open. You really need to use better boxes after so many reviews saying how the box was in bad shape when it arrived.

The stairs have worked out great, they make it so much easier for us and our dogs to get in and out of our 5th wheel.

Very well built and easy assembly. So much safer for entering and exiting our travel trailer.

We recently bought a new travel trailer and with us getting older the steps on the camper were not very comfortable to go up and down. I thought about building a step but would be quite awkward to transport and all so started looking around and found these. So we bought a set and man are they solid. They're a nice comfortable step even for people our age. I can slide it in the back of the truck and take it to the camp ground with us. We also want to take our 150 lb. Great dane with us so now gonna have to see if she can use it. The steps on the camper deffinantly dont work but am sure these will. Had some scratches and scuff Mark's on it when it arrived but the box was half ripped off. Witch with a product of this size and weight it's understandable. I'm very happy with my new steps.



- EHS-103-R
by:

It will work for now. I wish the Width was about 3” wider and the height 4” higher, then it would be perfect for my 11 year old 36’ bighorn 5th wheel. I’ll have to figure out how to adjust. Also very easy to attach braces until the final one. Hole wouldn’t line up. I would suggest making holes bigger than the other on either the frame or brace. I needed to pry it in and use c clamp to hold in position. I wouldn’t buy the same one because of the size.



- EHS-103-R
by:

All was well. Fits our needs. The only thing that bugs me is that when I opened the box the nuts and bolts were loose in the box scattering all over. And there was one of of the braces were missing.

One rivet on top step wasn't even touching and on second step rivet was to short. My husband is very handy and replaced them with quarter inch bolts. Other than that, the steps were easy to put together and I think we can tip them over and haul them in the back of our pickup. These steps are perfect for my wife and our 14 year old dog. Ordering was easy and the price was fair.



- EHS-103-R
by:

As advertised. One problem, a rivet was installed crooked, causing bolts to not line up with holes. Figuring that out and bending one of the supports to force holes to line up took an extra 20 minutes. Kept thinking: the person who did that figured it was "good enough". It wasn't.



- EHS-103-R
by:

In the time it takes to tighten 8 nuts & bolts, the steps were ready to use. I did add 2 lock washers to the bolts of the handrail to reduce the chance they might loosen. Very strong! Heavy duty!

  • Would Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail Work Well with RV that has 4 Step Pull Out Step
    From the ground to the top of the platform on the Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail # EHS-103-R measures 27-1/2 inches. While I don't know exactly what the distance from the ground to the door threshold is on your 2016 Forest River Cardinal you can use a tape measure to verify that height to determine if this would work well. Most RVs with quadruple steps have a doorway height right at around 30 inches so this should be a really great height for your RV! The picture I attached should...

    The Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail and Landing - Triple - 7" Drop/Rise, 27-1/2" Tall # EHS-103-R are not going to work well on uneven ground. They are designed to be used on level or close to level applications.

  • Is There An Easy Way To Fold The Econo Porch Trailer Step For Traveling
    The only way to fold the Econo Porch Trailer Step, part # EHS-103-R is to loosen the 2 braces on each step and remove the handrail. This will allow the step to fold down for traveling. I am not sure if that is an easy way, but that is the way the system is designed.

  • Available RV Porch Steps with Railings

  • Can Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail # EHS-103-R be Used on Fifth Wheel That Sits Higher
    The top landing on the Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail, # EHS-103-R, sits at 28 inches high. If your fifth wheel trailer sits approximately 7 inches higher, you are correct, it would take one more step to enter your trailer. Please do keep in mind that the hand rail ends at the landing so you would not have one for that last step into the trailer. Other than that, you should have no problems using these steps for your fifth wheel.

  • Does the Econo Porch Trailer Step RV Steps with Handrail Fold
    The Econo Porch trailer Step with Handrail and Landing # EHS-103-R does fold. This unit folds laterally, in order to fold the steps you would have to detach 8 braces to allow the steps to fold. Then reattach these braces when you were ready to use the steps again. The handrail is also removable and interchangeable to either the right or left hand side. For your reference I have included a photo showing these steps folded.

  • Will Econo Porch Trailer Step # EHS-103-R Fit Over Existing Steps on Arctic Wolf 5th Wheel Trailer
    There are a couple of support straps at the top step/landing that would likely be in the way and prevent Econo Porch Trailer Step # EHS-103-R from fitting around your existing steps. The height from the ground to the top step is 27-1/2 inches. From the ground to where that strap starts is about 18-1/2 inches. If those support straps weren't there then it would most likely work.

I recommend going with the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution # TLA9005 . These steps can be used for entries 34-7/8" to 42-3/8" and the steps have a rise/drop of 7-1/2" which is going to keep you from having to step up too high/too far down at any point.

    The Econo Porch Trailer Step w/ 2 Handrails and Landing - Triple - 7" Drop/Rise, 27-1/2" Tall # EHS-103-R-HR can be used as a back step. Because you will only be using one of the handrails, you may want # EHS-103-R to save that cost. You may be interested in the Stabil-Step Stabilizers # JSS-4, # JSS-7, or # JSS-85 for increased support.
