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!

What do you mean "rivets for pivots on the steps?". I'll probably just bunjie front & back steps on all future trips.

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.

Strangely enough, if memory serves me correctly I think I saw a redneck style race a while back...a couple cars with TT's and one with a boat in tow. Not sure but I think I saw it on Speed.

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 ;-)
