20 • RV PRO • February 2021 rv-pro.com Find the Right Step The company simplifies Solid Step selection with detailed measuring direc- tions and videos on its website. RVers need just two quick measure- ments to pick their step. First, measure the height from the ground to the RV entry door threshold. The RV needs a double step with heights of 22 to 28 inches; a triple step for heights of 27 to 36 inches; and a quad step for heights of 34 to 44 inches. RVers then simply measure the inside edge from left to right of their entry door frame and round up to the nearest even number. If the measurement is less than 30 inches, the RV requires a narrow Solid Step. If it's 30 inches or more, the unit needs a wide Solid Step. Installation is equally easy, according to Paul, noting an RVer can install the product themselves or have a qualified dealer install it. "Customers can install the Solid Step if they are handy, but most people don't want to mess with drilling or screwing anything into their RV," Paul says. "Installation takes around one hour at the dealership." Solid Step Add-Ons LCI has followed the Solid Step debut with other products designed to enhance the Solid Step experience. The company's Entry Assist Handrail offers added support when entering and exiting the RV. The durable, powder-coated handrail accessory is available for Generation 3 Tri or Quad Solid Steps and comes with adjustable locking pins, mounting brackets and installation hardware. "Our handrail attaches easily and removes easily when the step goes back inside the unit," Paul says. "We designed it to be removable because sometimes you cannot leave the handrail on when storing the steps inside." LCI also created an All-Weather Floor Tray to collect debris that drops from the Solid Step during storage. The versatile 28-1/4-inch wide by 20-inch-deep tray Lippert Components specifically designed the Solid Step to address the concerns of many RVers who cited wobbly, unstable steps as a potential safety hazard. Solid Step's extra-wide 13-inch top step and 8.5-inch subsequent steps provide an even step pattern all the way to the ground. LCI's Solid Step comes in double, triple, or quad versions to accommodate the variable height of RVs.
