MORryde Introduces StepAbove Entry Steps to RV Market

Thu Sep 22, 2016

147456188742610.jpgThe Pennsylvania RV Show and the RV Open House were the stage for MORryde to introduce its new StepAbove entry steps to the market.

MORryde engineered StepAbove after listening to RVers ask for an improvement over the existing entry steps. RVers felt that existing entry steps were just not stable enough, according to a press release. They used words like “springy”, “unstable” and “not solid”. StepAbove designed a new step system that can provide the stability and security, because the steps go all the way to the ground and are adjustable to compensate for any uneven terrain. This provides a solid foundation for RVers to walk up and down steps. StepAbove is available with an optional handrail that further enhances the stability and security.

“We were very excited at the response to StepAbove at the Hershey Show," MORryde R&D Manager JOe Carroll says. "Our booth was constantly busy with RVers trying our display. They were able to experience firsthand the exceptional stability and improvement that StepAbove provides.”

StepAbove is available from many of the industry leading fifth wheel and travel trailer brands. StepAbove also can be retrofitted onto existing trailers, providing dealers with a high-quality and profitable aftermarket product to sell.
