Didn't research if this has been discussed before.

Will going from a 5 step to a 6 step expandable collapsible rear set of steps help to level out , flatten out the top 2-3 steps ? Right now they are angled so that it hard to use once you get to the top 2 steps.

We've got a great TC with a floor plan we like . I really don't want to give it up for another one that is easier to get in and out of.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

We have a set of torklift aluminum stairs for our unit and when we unload at a site of our liking I have had to remove one of the steps as the t/c sits about 12 inches lower on its stand. When in the truck bed it sits approx. 36 inches off of the ground. Our steps are a 5 step configuration & seems to be about the right height. If i'm not mistaken torklift has a written scale in one of their brochures that gives dimensions as to height verses stair steps. I hope that this will help you before spending $$$$

Thank you.
I measured today and it's 50" bottom of the door to the ground. Yesterday I called torklift and have decided adding an extra step will solve the problem.
So, think I will purchase.

Thanks for your input.
