New standard Cedar Creek steps

I was at the factory during the FROG rally and was told that ALL Cedar Creeks being built from that date forward would have the Mor/Ryde one piece solid steps. These steps are 51" long and attach to the threshold. The only moving joint is where it is attached to the threshold. They fold as one long piece into the door way inside of the RV. The Mor/Ryde website shows the steps, but not how they are stored inside the RV.

I would like to get others thoughts on these new standard steps, Pros and Cons. Would you order/purchase a Cedar Creek knowing that you would get these steps?

My Pros/Cons:

Pros - sturdy steps

Cons - folds into RV, rain and dirt.
Parking in rest stops and truck stops, not being able to open steps next to a truck.
Park in 14' wide garage, not able to open steps to load/unload.

I seen them too, first impression was 'there nice' but once you thought about them and compared them to what is on now there are to many disadvantages. I'd rather have motorized steps working on a key fob. Just my two cents!

Didn't care for the concept at all. Don't want those heavy things rattling around INSIDE my camper in transit.

If stability in steps is the issue, I got one of these for $15 or so, and it fixes that issue.

My friends have them. I'll walk down to their rig today and check them out.

Overall, I like the idea that they firmly attach to the ground. The dirty and space issue thing is an interesting conundrum. I'll keep those in mind as I look at theirs.

One of our friends had Mor/Ryde install them in their Cedar Creek at the rally. I like the steps, very sturdy and makes for an easy entry into a fifth wheel. What I’m not sold on is the idea of them being stored inside the camper.

I feel they should be offered as a option as with talking to people about them and the reasons stated here already they would choose NOT to get them.

Good idea but what about uneven ground, a curb, tight storage lot, mud and dirt dropping off. Where I camp and store my trailer they will not work. Sorry one more reason we will not be purchasing the new Cedar Creek we have thought of.

I do not like the idea AT ALL. I am too concerned about the dirt, and especially water dripping down off them onto the floor of the unit, especially where it can get under the floor and into the walls where they meet the floor. I don't care how much wiping down you do, if it's pouring rain, you are not going to get them dry. We also would not be able to deploy them where we store either, and from the storage yards I've seen, not many will. I hadn't even given that aspect a thought until someone just mentioned it. We often times open the door to level without putting the steps out, and we have an older dog who needs to be lifted in and out of the rig. It's much easier on me and her if we fold the steps in and can lift her straight in and out.

Sounds better as an option.
