Replacement 4-Step 5th Wheel Trailer Steps to Replace Steep 3-Step Type


I have a 2015 Cedar Creek Silverback 31RK 5thwheel. It has Flexco 3 step steps, 24inch wide and total width of frame is 27. They have a 9 1/2inch on each step. I would like to install a quad step if it would shorten the on the steps but not the total from top to ground. Do you have such an item? Thank you.


Helpful Expert Reply:

You're correct that you need 5th wheel replacement steps to extend down from the mounting point the same distance as the original steps do. This will avoid loss of ground clearance which is an important safety consideration.

Trailer makers typically do not provide detailed specs on components such as steps that are used in their products but you can use the linked page to see our range of 4-step scissor steps. Brophy step # AS24 is 24-inches wide like yours, offers a 7-7/8-inch step height and has a retracted height of 12-3/4-inches. Please click on the linked video for more. Note these steps are NOT designed for permanent installation; they are to be mounted once the trailer is stationary.
