Yes, for a couple of reasons:
1) the ground to bottom step height can be a challenge with my fiver - the extra step puts the bottom step lower
2) the "rise" from one step to the next is less with these 4-step units. It's 7" instead of 9" making it easier to walk up.
Heck, I almost wish RV manufacturers would consider doing the same for the inside steps. I'm fairly young, but stumbling down the steps in the middle of the night on my way to attend to our crying baby- I wish those steps were closer to household height rise-wise. I feel like they're really tall when I'm just not fully awake.
