I'd still like to swap out for the 4-step versions due to the lower step height.

I will be picking up our 2013 320rs (Mfg. date of 4/13) next week and it also has 4 steps. Just another "like" with this unit. Can't wait for the first trip!

These work great. I found one at a resale shop for $17.00. I think they are about $30.00 at Wally World, if you can find one now. Last time I looked they didn't have them at my local WM. Best extra step for the money.

Looks like with the additional leverage added by the (4th) step,that the (Youroo Jack) will be required more to stop (Camper Rock) on entry & exit? Simple bolt on,self storing Youroo Jack! Youroo!!

As youroo says, the 4 steps put a lot of extra leverage on the 2 bolts and the structure they go thru'. If I wanted an extra step, I would use a separate independent step.

If/when(?) I get the 4-step model, supports under it will be part of the purchase.

The problem is - I have 2 doors and it just ends up an expensive mod!

Just make a couple of wooden steps and when traveling, you can turn them upside down and store things in them.

I do not want to get into your financial situation,but after spending (300$ x 2),for Steps (5$ x 2) for jacks seems small$. Youroo!!
