Lippert Components rolls out versatile Sure-Step

ELKHART — Lippert Components, Inc., (LCI) introduces its new Sure-Step, an entry step that can be mounted in several locations, removing constraints that RV floorplan designers have faced for years. The new aluminum quad entry step fastens to the RV sidewall, rear wall, exterior slide-out wall or over a wheel well, allowing manufacturers to create more versatile and customized RV floor plans.

“Traditionally an entry step could not be mounted over the axle area or on a slide-out, which left OEMs with very few options on door locations — particularly on fifth-wheel and toy hauler RVs,” said LCI Vice President of RV Sales Andy Murray. “The Sure-Step eliminates that constraint and opens up the potential for new floor plans that didn’t work before.”

The Sure-Step allowed Peterson Industries to create its expansive new SDF floor plan with a walk-in door on the main slide-out, a press release cited. Peterson debuted its new Excel Winslow D37SDF at the Pennsylvania RV Show in September and won Best of Show by HGTV, and will be featured on the TV show “RV 2014.” The design won for having the best innovations in the industry, including the door on the slide-out, made possible by LCI’s new Sure-Step, the release noted.

President of Peterson Industries Bryan Tillett praised the Sure-Step. “Having the door on the slide-out creates an expansive interior configuration.” He added, “It’s all about the steps, or rather how they are stored for transport.”

The Sure-Step can be easily folded and locked into place. Its adjustable feet are designed to contact the ground in the extended position, providing greater stability.

“When you walk on this entry step for the first time and feel the stability, you’ll understand why people are planning to use the Sure-Step instead of conventional entry steps for all applications,” said Murray. “Add the optional folding hand rail that retracts with the step, and you’ll have an even sturdier, user-friendly entry step.”
