Geaux fast, turn left!
If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

Ditto on the bungee chord solution.
Love the turn left reference for Nascar! What a scream!
What can you say while watching cars go in a circle hundreds of times, but....Left! Left! Turn Left! Phew! Left...Turn Left! Phew!
The individual steps pivot from the stow to open position. Those pivots are rivets. Drill them out and replace with either 1/4" or 5/16" ss bolts, washers & nylock nuts.
Probably smart. On my old TT (well 3 years old) the rivets starting to fail. Of course one time while I was on the way out and the two lower steps completely gave way. Luckily I was near grass and kept my balance and just ran out onto it. Ended up replacing them with bolts/washer/nuts. Probably need to be proactive with the new trailer. Although I have gotten a step support and use it under the bottom step to keep as much of the downward pressure off the steps as possible.

Glad I found this thread, thought I was alone...I just started having the same problem. When it was new and tight it was fine, but now mine opens (not when I turn) when I hit a large bump or stretch of bumpy road. So I too now use a bungee cord. Sounds like I better get a color coordinated one as it appears this is going to be a permanent fixture ;-)
