MORryde’s StepAbove was recognized as the 2017 New Product of the Year at the recent RVAA Conference in San Diego. Each year, RVAA honors products for their quality, innovation and impact on the RVer with the new product award. The award was voted on by distributors and members of the dealer council attending the RVAA Conference.
The StepAbove was selected from a pool of 28 products that were submitted by leading suppliers in the industry.
“We are very excited to receive the new product award for 2017,” MORryde Sales and Marketing Manager Jack Enfield says. “We try very hard to supply high quality products to the industry and to have the StepAbove recognized as one of the best in 2017 is a great honor.”
The StepAbove features an innovative design that provides an RVer good stability when entering or exiting their unit. Stability is provided through adjustable legs that go to the ground and can be easily adjusted for uneven terrain. The StepAbove is designed to be easily stored and locked in the entrance area. These developments offer substantial improvement to the RV experience.
“It has been very exciting to hear RVers talk about the dramatic improvement they have seen with the StepAbove,” Enfield says. “They commented their previous steps were spongy and sometimes had that diving board sensation. With the StepAbove, they have a solid foundation.”
MORryde has served the RV OEM market since 1966 and entered the aftermarket in 2009.
