Kyle at Couch's RV Nation informed me that he called FR and was informed that they CAN build the CC 34RL2 that we want with the old style quad-fold steps. That makes me happy and relieved. We have an RV pad between our home and fence. The new mor/Ryde stairs would hit our fence thus not being able to enter the trailer. Love the sturdiness and looks of them...just don't work for our situation.

Did a quick scan of all the previous posts in this thread and didn't any specific measurements. Anyone know what clearance is needed to deploy these steps?

If I recall they are just over 4' in length. They do have feet that can be extended out further and separately for slopping and/or unlevel ground.

You mean PITA steps

I prefer an electric elevator platform, with a back up hand crank for loss of power situations. Cannot even imagine pulling into truck area rest stops and trying to use my on board toilet. Some of those guys barrell in at 30+ mph and come within 3 feet of your damned rv. Does anyone who designs this STUFF ever travel in an RV?? No....be the correct answer. Billy Bob, near cousin of some top honcho came up with this during a BBQ and a 12 pack...he is now elevated to a Berkshire, which of course does not need this contraption.
Why not just IMPROVE on folding steps? More steps, more reinforcement, aluminum, better back plates, better, perhaps more / better bolts!!
Wait'll aunt Lulu trips on the door jamb and flies head first out the door; down those elongated steps; uuuggglllliiieee!!
Just say'n 😉🍷🍷🍷.
Too bad we don't use matchbooks with them there ads much more! I was a gonna get me one of them there "lawyer" mail in certificates 😄
Night now, ya'll hear?!

We have one on order with the folding steps. We also specified the gas/electric water heater instead of the on-demand one

(cough) Torklift Glowstep Revolution Steps (cough)

They hit on every one of your comments. Solid, don't stick way out, adjustable. The whole 9 yards.

Nice...congrats! So what is the reason for going with the gas/elec H2O heater over the on-demand? I have not researched this yet so forgive my ignorance.

Because we did read of problems some are having. Plus I wanted a gas/electric option. Always prefer the campground electric over my propane.

Dealer told me 5 feet of clearance to swing the out and set them.
