I thing I would grease right after getting it home thinking about how they drive while delivering them!

Looking good there Mr Caldwell. I'd like to do this on our Apex. Would this application work on our Coachmen? If so where do I purchase these at? And are they pricey?

They also adjust to 3 different heights as a set, and the ground feet do also. Tuff, and solid

I got mine directly from Torklift. They aren't crazy expensive compared to alternatives.

Product Review: Glowstep Revolution by Torklift | Learn To RV

Those are a great product.............and seems like an awesome company. I was contacted out of the blue to receive a free set for evaluation purposes. Unfortunately I had to turn it down as they do not make a set narrow enough for a Rockwood Roo to just bolt on. I would of needed to modify the mounting by welding in some new outriggers and cut back the lower skirting on each side. I didn't feel like getting into that at the time although I appreciated the offer.

Once I forget to fold them in and take off the existing steps as I always seem to do, I'll probably just drop the dime on the Torklifts and do the modifications. They are awesome steps.

As one uses your original brackets that came with your existing, the steps are 25 and 1/2" wide ( step frame that bolts in)...The company also have a spacer set if you need 'em

Something like 19 1/2" or 20" going from memory. I traded many emails back and forth with the rep who contacted me, and she said at some point they may introduce a bolt on set that will fit the Roo / Minilite etc. I do not see how because to accommodate the scissors when folded requires almost 3". I think an actual step width of 17" would be slightly narrow? If I wanted to break out the welder I could of made the Torklifts fit. Cutting back the skirting would of been easy.

RV manufacturers........ On our Keystone Passport we had a 22" wide door but 24" wide steps, On the Roo we have a 26" wide door but 20" steps

Opened up some room under the sink by moving the wood partition from in front of the water lines to allow the water lines to go through the partition. This opened up a lot of room. The second photo is of a new storage shelf that I installed in our cabinets. There was just a piece of wood covering up the lower area. I removed the wood and installed a shelf with standoffs that still allow the electrical lines to be protected but also allowed us more storage room for can goods.
