Quad steps

I have looked into this for my 2015 Silverback 29re. Current steps appear to be welded to frame as well as bolted to the floor.

I can't say for sure on your 2015 model but our 2014 Silverback had a mounting bracket that is "welded to the frame and bolted to the floor" and then the Flexco step assembly then bolted with 4 bolts(2 each side) to that mounting bracket along with 2 self-tapping screws(1 each side)....hopefully you can see the nuts for the bolts and the screwhead in the pic ....I removed the 4 bolts and the self-tapping screws and the step assembly simply dropped right out away from the mounting bracket.....I did have to trim about 1.25 inches from the bottom of the bracket for the quad steps to fit back in the holes.

I have the Flexco quad steps on our Cedar Creek. Purchased the Presto Fit step covers and they have 4 springs each to attach the cover to the step. Well, they would not work as designed. The quad steps seem like they almost have to be metal to metal when they are folded up. I'm still trying to figure out some way of covering the metal with some type of cover.

X2. Best upgrade on our fiver to date. Had an elderly disabled lady try ours out last weekend while camping and she was amazed how much easier they were to climb.
