  • Differences Between MORryde StepAbove Fold-Down Steps MR98RR and MR48RR
  • You are right on. The 8" rise/drop on the MORryde StepAbove Fold-Down Steps # MR98RR is the height between the steps. The # MR48RR you were looking at has a 9" rise/drop meaning the distance between the steps is 9". The # MR98RR is designed for RVs with a 23-3/4" - 26-1/4" wide door frame, and requires and entry height between 30" - 33-1/2", and the # MR48RR is designed for RVs with the same 23-3/4" - 26-1/4" wide door frame, but is used when the entry height is between 34" - 36".

  • Comparing Camper Scissor Steps Brophy AS24 vs. Torklift TLA7804
  • Both the Brophy # AS24 and the TorkLift # TLA7804 are easily removed when not in use- and it's actually recommended that you do so. Additionally, they both weigh in around 26-lbs total, so they're easy to move on and off; so they'd both be great choices for what you're looking for. Overall I prefer the TorkLift # TLA7804 because of the quality of TorkLift products in general, plus you'll have the ability to add the All Terrain Landing Gear for TorkLift GlowStep Scissor Steps for RVs...

  • Recommended Kwikee Electric Step 28 Series For A 1999 Gulfstream Sun Voyager Motorhome
  • The Replacement Step, Motor, and Switch for Kwikee RV Electric Steps - 28 Series - 23-5/8" Wide # LC3747451 isn't going to include the control unit # LC379146 so as long as your current one is operational you can just reuse it with this new step. If not then you can order the Kwikee Electric RV Step Complete Assembly - Single - 28 Series - 23-5/8" Wide # LC3747453 which will come with everything you need.

  • Comparing Lippert Kwikee 26 Series Electric RV Steps for a 2020 Jayco Greyhawk Motorhome
  • The difference between the Kwikee 26 Series Electric RV Step # LC371136 and # LC3711363 is that the 363 comes the switch kit while the 136 doesn't come with the switch kit. Unfortunately just the frame isn't available so if you have pretty much everything already you'll want to go with the part # LC371136. I confirmed all of this with Lippert. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Difference Between Lippert Kwikee 32 Series Step # LC3722615 and # LC372261
  • I spoke with my contact at Lippert just to verify the contents of the Lippert Components Kwikee 32 Series Double Tread Step # LC372261 that you referenced. He did confirm that this particular 2 step assembly includes everything needed (control unit, switch kit, frame, motor, etc). This is the complete kit for the 2 step model Kwikee 32 Series assembly. He did also confirm that the # LC3722615 that you also mentioned includes everything that the above model has, except for the Switch...

  • Comparing Brophy AS25 and TorkLift TLA7506 Camper Scissor Steps
  • The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS25 have 7-inches of rise between steps and an extended height of 40-48-inches. The TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps # TLA7506 have 7-1/2-inches of rise between steps and a mounting bracket height of 49-1/2-inches when extended. The reason the two steps have a similar overall height, despite having a different number of steps, is that the Brophy steps are almost 1-1/2-times as deep at 8-3/4-inches versus 6-inches for the TorkLift. The most...

  • The four Lippert 35 Series RV electric step items are essentially the same product but they differ in some of the included components.

  • Lightweight Portable Step for Use with Thule Force Rooftop Cargo Box on Tall SUV
  • You are correct that the size and weight of heavy-duty steps like # S-150 and # SASXLA-09C-G make them less than ideal for transport inside a rooftop cargo box like the Thule Force XT # TH6356B. Odds are if you are using a roof box you do not have space in the vehicle to store one of these steps. Handy as they are their best application is as an entry step for folks towing a large trailer such as a 5th wheel that has substantial cargo storage space built-in. But anyone using a rooftop...

  • Difference Between Kwikee 38 Series Electric Steps
  • I can absolutely tell you the difference between the two options. The Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC3723383 comes with a control module, which means it will automatically extend. The Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC372338 does not come with this control module, which means they do not automatically extend. So to make things as easy as possible I highly recommend going with the Kwikee 38 Series Electric Step # LC3723383 which has the control module because of how convenient...

  • Weight of Steps # AS04 and # SS04
  • The weight of the # AS04 steps is 21 lbs, and these have a weight capacity of 250 lbs. The weight of the # SS04 steps is 37 lbs, and these have a weight capacity of 300 lbs. For safety purposes, I also recommend using some Non-Slip Adhesive Safety Strips such as Item # NSAS and the Aluminum Hand Rail for 4 Step Scissor Stair, Item # AHR4. I've attached a video review for each of these products for you to check out.

  • Scissor Step for Slide-In Camper in 2017 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
  • The Brophy 4-Step Camper Scissor Steps # AS24 work with campers that have an entryway height of 31 to 39-inches. So long as your camper's threshold is within this height range above level ground this step will work fine. If your camper's door height is lower, in the range of 24 to 31-inches, then instead you can use the similar 3-step unit # AS23. Both of these steps are rated for 300-lbs and are only to be used while your vehicle is stationary. They should not be mounted permanently....

  • Comparing Kwikee Lippert # LC3474453 VS # LC3747451
  • In comparing Kwikee Lippert # LC3474453 VS # LC3747451 electric steps (28 Series), I find that the 451 is a basic electric step that goes in or out based on an in-cab switch only. The 453 model additionally includes a control unit, and magnetic door switches that automate extending and retracting the steps. As you mentioned, the 453 has a step light as well.
