IMO - if these are used on concrete slab and not dirt they will probably help with the stability of the trailer and not make the trailer swag or dip to that side when you step into the trailer
If it is used on dirt - I would have to say they will probably be worthless unless you use a flat piece of 2x6 (maybe 2 or 3 foot long) under it IMO.

you shouldnt have to relieve any stress on the steps unless you carrying a ton of weight when you get into the trailer.

It's amazing. Someone is always coming up with some new way to get money out your wallet.

Hmmm, I have never seen 1 of those, but actually think it is a good idea. My bottom step already sags some on the most used corner....the door latch corner. I catch myself using that side more so I don't have to open the door all of the way. I weigh in the 190 lb. range.

These have been around a long time. Here are several other flavors of the same thing.

We use them and they help when I step on them...250 pounds...sneek out with the DW knowing. Gives a solid step feeling.
