Leaning? Who knows. Could be an optical illusion.
Danger? I'm not sure there is other than what happens when that step hanging out hits something at 75mph. Integrated step is just simpler. We drop the sidewall down to lower that first step. It was only 1" higher than when we had a power step.
Benefits? No waiting for the step to power out. No rusted steps. No worry about step hitting curb when going out. When you lose battery power, you still have a step. If you notice in Class C's almost every single mfg has followed our lead on it.
