How Do I Determine What Steps I Need for My 2017 Forest River Flagstaff MAC 228d?

Question:

I have a 2017 forest river flagstaff MAC 228d that i need new steps for and i can seem to find what i am looking for. It came with a single fold out step but I am looking for a 2 step fold out option. I know Forest river makes a lifted pop up rockwood extreme sports and was wondering if the stock 2 step option for that would work for mine. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.

I have a 2-step answer for you. Unfortunately, we do not carry the Rockwood Extreme Sports step model that you are referring to and I do not have access to the specs of those models.

However, we do have some great options for you. Two of the key factors you need to consider when adding steps is the entryway height and the doorway width of your 2017 Forest River Flagstaff MAC 228d. For example, if you have an entryway height between 25" - 29" and a doorway width of 21-3/4" - 22-1/4", I recommend the MORryde StepAbove RV Steps for 21-3/4" to 22-1/4" Wide Doorways # MR86RR. Not only does the StepAbove come with a 500-pound weight capacity, it also includes individually-adjusting legs for maximum ground contact (even on uneven terrain).

In order to know what steps work great for you, feel free to respond to this answer with the measurements of your entryway height and doorway width. I went ahead and attached a product listing of all our 2-step options for campers.

Thank you for the answer and review. I am looking for something that will bolt on underneath, more of a manual pull out 2 step since i don't really have room to store the steps that fit inside the doorway. My current step is a manual pull out and is 24" wide and 14" deep. the bolt holes are 22-5/8" center to center. If you could recommend any bolt on manual 2 steps that would be great.

Thanks so much for your response! The closest step we have that matches the dimensions you provided is the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear - 2 Steps - 25-1/2" Base # TLA8102. These are manual pull-out steps that include mounting brackets that measure 25-1/2" wide x 13-7/8" deep. Since these steps are a bit wider than your steps, I recommend checking with the available mounting length available under your doorway. If you find that you need less length, the next best option is the TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps - 2 Steps - Aluminum - 20" Wide # TLA7802. This particular model comes with mounting brackets that measure 21-1/2" wide x 8-9-/16" deep.

However, it is important to note that the # TLA8102 steps will only work on your doorway if the entryway height measures between 18-1/2" - 28" tall. The # TLA7802, on the other hand, is designed to work with entryway heights of 16" - 23" tall. I recommend measuring your entryway to ensure that your height falls within these dimensions.
