Rail Mate - Anyone have one?

I've been looking to for a way to get a handrail for the back door of our 5vr. Unfortunately there is not enough space between the awning mount and the door to fit a Lend-a-Hand (bought one and sold it already). Does anyone have one of these, and if so, how does it work?

The reviews that I've read for these aren't great. They say that they move around a fair amount unless you can secure the top. Seems like some heavy duty zip ties to the regular handle may do the trick.

This is one thing where I definitely have the advantage with the '13 QBOK.

Yeah, I read the same thing. Looks like they made a new bracket for it and are including Velcro to secure it to the handrail. Just found a gift card laying around I hadn't used yet so I went ahead and bought it. I figure for $11.00 I can take the risk of having problems. Now if I could only find 30 - 40 more of those cards laying around somewhere!
