Measuring for an RV Manual Pull-Out Step

Today we're going to show you how to measure for the RV manual pull out steps and attachment out rigger. Now the biggest difference between these steps is the depth of the bottom stair from the center of the attachment point at the top of the mounting plate. First, we need to measure the width of the stair assembly. In this case, it's 27 1/2 inches. We'll also measure the stair height which is 9 inches. The third measurement that we need to take is from the center of the step assembly here at the top at the cross bar and make a diagonal line straight down to the edge of the bottom stair.

This will give you the measurement that you need in order to correct stair. If your stairs aren't there, you'll measure approximately between the two mounting bolt holes for the stairs at approximately a 30 degree angle to obtain a measurement that will suffice the stairs that you need. Once you've determined the correct dimensions, you can go to our website and select the appropriate stairs for your trailer. And that will do it for how to measure for the correct stairs for your RV trailer.

Will this also help in determining how to pick a 3 step. I currently have a 2 step and want to make it a 3 step. For instance if my steps are 27.5 w with a 9 can I buy a 27.5w with 9 3 step?

As long as you do not have a ground clearance issues you can change from a 2 to a 3 step configuration.
