RV Entry Steps Carpet

I am hearing that folks with 3 fold steps can't use the Ruggids RV Step Carpet. Anyone own these or know of trouble folding up your steps after installation???

Any help is appreciated!

I don't remember the brand I bought, but I think I got my carpet set at Camping World and they were easy to install using the spring hooks to secure them underneath after wrapping them around the steps. No problem using or folding the steps.
Happy camping!

X 2. They help the 17 y/o dog get down the stairs but they are too steep for him to go up. He has no trouble going up the 3 steps to bed though.

Our toy hauler has the 3 step design and I have them carpeted and there are no clearance issues when holding them up or unfolding them out.

Our third step will not fold with carpet on it. So it doesn't get any!

Our dog would not climb up the 3steps. I added carpet to block the view looking straight in. Dog now scampers right up. Perhaps it has to do with the dog looking straight into the steps and seeing air and freaking it out?

The outside steps are too steep for him to climb. He would rather do it himself. He takes the steps to the bedroom 1 at a time and slow but lets you know he does not want help there. Before the carpet he would not go down either. The vet said the pads on his paws are sensitive. Unlike steps on previous units these have a raised area around drain areas.

We have the camping world carpet on our 3 steps and they fold fine.
