Default EZEE vs Easy step?

Reading the other thread on EZEE steps reminded me I was going to order a set, problem lies that the spare tire mount is on the side the steps would run.

The cure seems to be going to the Easy Steps that mount more centered and rear of the tire mount.

Just wondering if anybody has gone to their steps and how they liked them, and also their web site seems to lack information on load capacity?

Al, The EZEE steps are custom made to fit you rig . One of the first questions asked by Mark (stepman) was do you have a spare tire mounted on the trailer . He said he might have to build around the spare if it was in the way . You can give him a call if your thinking about steps . If you haven't already talked to him . A phone call is pretty cheap way to find out for sure , If he could help you . His steps are really solid, and quality built that I know by walking up and down them . My 2 cents .
Tight Lines,
Rick

Regarding load capacity...

Mark said in his post on the other thread that he has a customer that is 450 pounds using his steps.

I'm pretty sure you're safe.

That would put the steps a fair piece out from the boat, might or might not work, thinking of people walking into them and such, but a phone call might be in order.

I purchased from Texas and was very pleased with the service and quality of the product. Installed on my Shorelander / Creastliner 1850 SuperHawk. Fit perfect.

Hi Allen this is Mark from EZEE STEP. What boat and trailer do you have? I have built around a lot of spare tires over the last 15 yrs. with no problems. With my steps you step INTO the boat and not ON the boat. Plus you have NO tripping hazards with my steps. I will gladly answer any questions or concerns you might have. Thx

Mark
