RV Entry Steps: Pros, Cons, And Installation Made Easy

Thinking about upgrading your unstable, outdated RV entry steps for some fresh, safer ones? In the video above, we compare two of the most in-demand RV step models, the MORryde StepAbove and the Lippert Solid Step. Check it out to see a direct comparison of the two, learn about the ordering process, and more! 

Why should I upgrade my old RV entry steps?

Traditional RV entry steps fold out from underneath your camper and rest above the ground, never coming into contact with the ground. The newest style of RV steps make direct contact with the ground and are, therefore, much sturdier. This makes them much safer. Not only are they more solid and secure, but they can also support more weight. Additionally, they enhance the appearance of your camper as well!

What options for new steps are available?

When looking for a new set of steps, most consumers will end up comparing the Lippert Solid Step and the MORryde StepAbove step, which are the two most popular models on the market. Both brands offer aluminum construction, which is not only lightweight but also durable in all weather.

Both of these models are also stowed internally during driving, so they stay cleaner and avoid road grit and grime. And with adjusting feet, both sets of steps are stable on most any surface. You can even add on additional features such as handrails for more stability and automatic lighting for better visibility.

Should I order my new RV steps from Lippert or MORryde?

That depends on what’s more important to you. To help you make that decision, I’ve installed, tested, and documented both sets of steps meticulously. I review all of their similarities, as well as their advantages, disadvantages, and variations in detail in the video above.

Things to consider when upgrading RV entry steps

When comparing the two brands of RV entry steps, you’ll see that the weight limits are a bit different. The steps also have slightly different dimensions in regard to the overall steppable surface area. The adjustable legs of each step function a bit differently. They both offer different optional add-ons, they require different ordering procedures, and they’re even installed differently.

For example, both options offer versions with either a quick-release hinge, which enables users to quickly and easily remove the steps from their RV, or a strut-based assistance system, which supports most of the weight of the steps while folding them in and out of your rig, making it much easier for those with strength limitations.
