I've only read good things about the Progressive Industries one.

Finally got around to connecting my awning lights into my 12V connection today (ran them all weekend at the campground off 110). Thought I would share with everyone where I mounted both the IR sensor and the remote. (we keep the basement door open most of the time when we are camping anyway given that the kids are in and out of there getting their toys.

Finally took our first trip for the holiday. Afterwards, ordered 2 sets of quadra steps Tuesday. Will transfer my stabilizers to them. $440 on eBay with shipping.

Curious as to why you decided on the quad steps? We had our second outing this weekend (i posted pics in another thread) and really didn't have any issues with the steps, however we were used to the tri-step from out last sabre. We do carry a step stool if necessary, but have only used it once.

Also will be curious on the difference after you get them on as you might change my mind.....and save my back if my 85lb. Lab can get up them (arthritis and bad hind legs) vs me lifting him up in every time.

The bottom step is quite high, which I see as a trip hazzard, and a trip to the ER that I'd rather not have to make. Wife, kids, and myself didn't have any issues this outing, but I can see someone missing it easily....I think it makes people really pull on the grab bar, which can't be good for it, and it really has to be hard on that bottom step.

Forgot to include a pic of the first trip

I think we have just become acclimated to the step height after having pretty much the same step setup for the last couple years with our previous Sabre. Others have said the same as you, I was just curious.

Keep me posted on the difference, might just be something that I could do and earn some "brownie points" from the DW without her asking for them.

I want the quad steps because they start lower to the ground and there's less height between each step. It would be more convenient to not have to setup the extra step at the bottom. I told my mother-in-law about them and pointed them out at the RV show. We all agreed that they would be nicer.
