Entry steps on '77 Argosy motorhome

When I bought my '77 Argosy moho, the entry steps had already been replaced by the previous owner. I would like to replace them with OE steps. I don't think Airstream changed the steps much on trailers or motorhomes. However, to help me in my selection of hopefully not brand-new steps, could someone who has a late 70's Argosy moho with original steps please measure the width of the mounting arms and shoot a few pictures and post them here so that I know exactly what I'm looking for? I'm also curious to know if the steps are bare alum. like trailer sor is all / part of them were painted the Argosy eggshell white.

I did actually find a picture of the steps in my service manaul, but it would be nice to have a pic posted here for those that don't have a service manual and it would be nice to see in color! I think I've figured out at this point the there was nothing different dimensionally from those used on trailers, but I'm curious to see of they were painted white or brown. I assume brown, but if you can post a pic, it will show all!

Thanks for the pictures. I'm pretty sure that any steps from that era of trailer or mororhome would fit. Now, just to find a set!

My 76 steps look just like yours. For a second I thought someone copied my pictures. I have this rounded metal piece about 3-4"wide. I thought it was supposed to weld on the outside of the stairs but I don't see it in your pictures. I think it's supposed to hide the steps and goes in the hole they create under the door.. ???
