Steps on Z-1

So I am sure anyone with the Z-1 Toy hauler or anyone with steps for that matter, knows the feeling of stepping on the lowest step and feeling it sink for what seems like 2 feet. Hated it every time I got in and out. I bought the single Camco step support and it was better but I had to get it out each time and if it was not exactly centered it felt wonky. I installed 2 of the self store Camco step supports ($14 buck for both on Amazon), one on each end to support across the entire step and boy does it feel solid. Easy install and easy to set up. I ordered two more for the other steps off the bathroom.I will need to cut around the step rug to get it back on around the step holders but a sharp knife will make short work of that.

Those look nice but what do you do if the ground is closer or farther away. Do they retract and extend?

I like the looks of them, and was going to put a set on, but had the same concerns Stan voiced. Most of our camping is on dirt, or gravel. Very little cement or black top pads. So I went cheap and just put boards under the bottom step.

Stan, the steps on my Z1 are always a ways off the ground because it is so high so I have never had an issue with being too close but if the ground were too too close these would not retract much more than about 6 inches (the length of the unit fully closed). These do go out about 10 inches fully extended if the ground was that far. Hope that helps.

Thanks, I may have to consider them. I do know the bottom step does flex.
