I bought this given the number of step issues reported here on all coaches.


Camco
Camco 43671 Self-Stor Step

available on Amazon for <$15 bucks.

Steps Broke!

The problem with camco is you level at different heights and if you forget to fold it up and the steps come in.,, I use the levelers and some how I start the engine and In come the steps and the levelers are sucked under but no harm done.

Just saying.

Well, finally got my new steps installed. It took the dealer 7 weeks for the steps to be installed. The issue is the step company took their time shipping the steps to them. They needed an ok from Forest River and so, glad it's over. My warranty runs out this month, what next?

Yeahhhh, that's why I don't use stupid dealers. Called Camping World, they repaired step on site within a couple of hours and sent bill to FR.

Dealers , unlike car dealers, are only interested in selling, not repairing. Especially if you didn't buy from them. ( in my opinion)

Has anyone had issues with their Lippert steps braking.
Any injuries or hurts

We had the broken bolt issue and the wife fell but no serious injury
I have been contacted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration board and they would like to hear from anyone that has had a broken step and/or injuries.
Here is his contact link or you can file a complaint at the link below.

Well, we had this issue last July on our trip to myrtle beach. Camping world replaced the broken bolt. Had fallen with a scraped knee but was only sore for a day or 2. Being from Canada, I'm sure you are looking for US residents.

Not really
He is looking at how many were bad and if any one was injured
Either email him or file a complaint so maybe others will not get hurt
