Difference Between No Ground Contact vs. Ground Contact for RV Steps


No Ground Contact vs. Ground Contact. What do these terms mean in reference to the different types of stairs and steps for RVs? Thank you!


Expert Reply:

The only difference in steps that are faceted as having Ground Contact or No Ground Contact is that the steps that have ground contact have a portion of the steps that comes in complete contact with the ground while those labeled No Ground Contact are not supported by the ground at all.

For example, the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps with Landing Gear # TLA7833 have landing gear feet that support the steps via full ground contact while the Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps for RVs # SMFP-3100 attach to the side of the RV with a bracket and the steps are not supported by - and make no contact with - the ground.

I have added links to our entire selection of steps with and without ground contact for you to check out.
