Works perfectly. Never gets jammed. Needs no maintenance. Weighs buggerall.
Spend the £400 saved on fuel and wine.
In fact if I were looking for a new m/home, one WITHOUT a step (swing down or slide out) would take priority on any shortlist.

Don't underestimate the substantial amount of weight that they and their bracketry add to the MH too.

I took the folding one off our previous MH to repair it, and really was astonished at just how heavy the damn thing was - and that was without the weight of the two substantial brackets that had been added to the chassis to hold it in place.
