Tri-Step to Quad-Step

Now have a tri-step on 36RE and thinking about changeing to a Quad Step Lippert Part #198583. Has anyone made this change that might be able to share some input.

I did some searches and want to do the same thing. Most people say it's a straight bolt-in. A few said holes didn't line up and they had to drill out new ones. If you do it, please take pics! :-)

Dealer service dept. told me that the old style quad steps from Lippert were weak and bent the bottom step. A new style that is used for the 2013 5ths is a stronger bottom step. Is your part number for the new step?

I did read about some flexing issues with them. I planned on mounting step supports under each of them. I figure it'll help fight some bouncing as people come up the steps.

Just checked Lipperts web site. Steps are not avalable at this time. Where were you going to get the quad steps at?

I have been looking at these quad steps from Elkhart Tool & Die. Elkhart Tool and Die : Elkhart Indiana - RV Steps - Continuous Hinges - Custom Metal Fab



I am trying to find someone that has made this conversion but haven't yet. Lippert use to have the quad step on their web site but I don't think they do now.

Anyone out there with the Elkhart Quadra steps?

My dealer is ordering a 4-step for our 36RE. Not sure where he is getting them from. I'll let you know all the details when they come in.

I know Lipperts web site does not show them but the part number I got was off one of there steps on a 2013 unit, they do have them. You can also find them on tweetys web site. I will be ordering a set this weekend and will post pictures of placement on 2010 36RE just as soon as they get here. May even have Lou helping as he is coming to FL and camping in same campground. Will keep you posted. R
