    I am sure those steps are very solid to walk on and all that, but these are camping trailers! We have our steps up and down every time we pull off somewhere to pee and wash hands after fueling or makikng lunch at a rest stop. These seem like a giant hassle for all the times we are in and out of the trailer for a few minutes on a road trip. I guess if you just park it and live in it it's fine but for actual road trips, no.

      It would be nice if Nash reintroduced a 24-26 foot trailer without a slide. I am guessing they don't because of a limited projected market? Easy to heat, easy to set up...

        Isnít your 22H like ours, only an 8 ft width? The AF is only 6 in wider, and measures out at a 24 ft ft length. We will probably go to 25y, but I donít quite fancy the 30 ft length. However, our grandkids are growing and another has been added to the pack. When we bought the 22H it was just for us, but grandma always makes sure we plan around our offsprings offspring.

          Yes, my trailer is just 8 feet wide. I am not sure which direction my daughter is going to take, housing wise, beginning in August. If she stays here during her college years we will be looking at the Nash 25 (with rear bunks). The production run on the Nash 25 is in April so I can have the option of ordering whatever I want on it. I would have to put in the order soon, though. The dealer has been sold out of that model for 4 months and Northwood hasn't had any available in ages. . NW is kicking their selves in the pants by not being able to supply dealers in a timely matter, especially with the less popular models.
          As I live in a trailer park (and just signed a new 2 year lease) my preferred options might be different than an occasional 2 or 3 week on the roader. Storage is a bigger priority than having a generator-ready compartment. Ease of heating, primarily with electricity, is important..motorized stabilizer jacks are irrelevant.
          There is a propane truck that comes around every week and fills up leased/rented 100# propane cylinders. On a smaller, well insulated trailer I don't have a need for a 100# cylinder (or a pair of them). There are numerous newer 30' + toy haulers and other RVs with 2 or 3 slides. I know propane heat would be their only practical option. 100# of propane every 8-10 days in the winter would be a lot of bread for a lower income guy.

            I agree about the MorRyde steps. With that swing span, you are doomed if you have tight quarters where you need to park. We switched out our OEM steps to the Torklift steps. We LOVE LOVE them. We can accordian them out to whatever space we need to fit (for most cases, as I'm sure there might be some spot we can't fit.) The OEM steps that fold out on the 27-5L are awful. That first step is so tall you have to heave yourself up. And I am NOT a fan of having to buy an after market step just to reach the first step on the fold out style. The bummer about the 2019's that now have the MorRyde steps is there is not longer that space where you could install the Torklift steps instead. On the positive side, the MorRyde's are easy to walk up.

              I think it's all about how many steps you need vs what works. Recently went to the local RV show. Even low end 2 step units had the Solid Steps. Hardly any space needed to drop them down.
              Our 5er only needs 3 steps. The swing down area is not as big as a 4 step model. I walked up and down so many Solid Steps I was spoiled. I really can't see a condition where having the swing down area of 2-3 step versions would make be a deal breaker. 4 step versions OTOH could be an issue in tighter areas like parallel parking in rest stops or other parking lots.

                I look for our next upgrade to be the Torklift steps. However as an inbetweener, the extra step stool works, but not ideal.

                  Perhaps, Smokey, you should think of getting a step stool sample...

                    If the Torklift married the Lippert & had a baby---- wouldn't they have a 'step-stool'?

                      I haven't seen the 3-step versions, but I have seen the 4-step versions, and they surly wouldn't work for us, while stopping for a night at a rest area, welcome center, truck stop, etc. --- no matter how much reflective tape I applied and/or cones I put out.

                        The dealer gave me a lead in on the new Nash 24 bunk house that is going into production.. I will probably be going with a Nash 25C or the new 24. I have not reviewed the 24 yet. I need a good amount of storage space. The smaller bunkhouses eliminate much of the storage to the point of being weekender or 1 week trailers, not long term.. No storage anywhere near the bunks, in other words, living out of a suitcase.
