Replacement Manual Pull-Out RV Step for 2018 Shockwave 25RQMX Toy Hauler Travel Trailer


We had the springs flipped on our toy hauler and now need to replace the entry 2 step on my 2018 Forest River Shockwave 25RQMX. The existing step mount box is 25 3/8inch wide and 12 5/8inch deep so that is the max exterior mounting size of step I can install. The entry threshold is 34inch off the ground. What are my options for replacement entry step?


Expert Reply:

We have new step options for your 2018 Forest River Shockwave 25RQMX toy hauler travel trailer that has had an axle over-under kit installed. All manual and electric steps are displayed on the linked page. Based on my research the OEM unit is a 2-step manual pull-out step.

Just in case you want to consider a potentially easier option we do offer large free-standing platform steps like # S-150 and others shown on the linked page. These cost less than new pull-out steps, offer a much larger 24 x 16-inch "landing" area and they can be useful in other camping applications too. I wanted to mention this option just in case it appeals to you.

The other linked page displays 3-step pull-out units like the Lippert Alumi-Tread # LC432696 which has the popular nominal width of 24-inches. What you'll want to check is the dimensions of your existing mounting brackets. The Lippert # LC432696 has a mounting bracket that measures 27-1/2" wide, 16" tall, and 12-3/16" deep. We provide these same dimensions for all of our steps in their specs to make it easy to find the best match.
