Last time I was at Foley RV (AKA "Airstream of Mississippi") I laid down on my belly there in the parking lot and looked underneath one of the Interstates with the new step. The support brackets are completely
different, and much
more stable. I was able to step onto the step with my whole foot on the step, and bounce up and down on it. It didn't even flex. Significant improvement especially considering my own excessive avoirdupois.
In fact, the brackets being so different are one reason why I'm still debating the replacement instead of just going ahead and doing it. I need to go back to Foley with a camera, and get pictures of the new brackets, and compare them to what's under mine, to see the extent of the required underbody modifications.
