Lippert Solid Step

I have just ordered some Lippert solid steps to put in my Ultra V 2618. Are there any gotchas that I should know about. Also, what are the fastners of choice to attach them to the trailer.

Not sure what they look like or exactly what your looking for but I use these for my 4X6 porch then just take them up when I drag up. You can use nails, screws, or just wire. I use screws with mine and you wouldnít believe the sturdiness they make. Click image for larger version

You need to buy 10 #10x1-1/2Ē wood screws with no shoulder (the threads need to go all of the way up to the head of the screw). There are no gotchas ó it will take you less than a half hour and you will have to modify nothing.

Mine came with the instructions for electric steps for a class A, but I had already read the instructions online, so that wasnít a problem. They do not come with the screws.

I think Jeff posted in the wrong thread.

No, no I didnít. He asked for fasteners for his steps. I use those and they made mine really rigid. And I didnít have to anchor it to my camper. So no I didnít post to the wrong thread. If your trying to be sarcastic, please take that crap elsewhere. We are all just putting suggestions in. We all have different opinions so please donít rag on people trying to help out.

I wasnít being sarcastic at all. What you described and pictured has nothing to do with the installation of a SolidStep, so I thought you must have posted in the wrong thread. Thatís all. I just canít picture where an 18Ē long, 3/4Ē spike would come into play here.

I put the solid steps on my fiver in about 15 minutes, piece of cake, too bad I traded it in 4 months later.

mine came with the fasteners, two different types for different floors, but i did have to trim the sweep off the bottom of the screen door to get it to close, and its still a little tight but the steps are still great, no bounce when someone comes in the camper.
