It my understanding that the Glow Steps can mount above the or below the entry door

Correct, they have models that replace traditional 2 or 3 step box entry stairs or models that install above the threshold like stable steps.

I got the glow step and really lime it. Where I park I could not use the type that folds into the door. The fold out type stairs would hit the wall next to where I park before it was down enough to get in.

I had worked a set of thoes steps into the deal when I bought my 5th wheel, lippert didnt have any stock at the time as they were so new and there were shipping issues and on and on.. I ended up getting them to drop the stairs and add a third solar panel instead. best move I ever made in my mind.

I thought about it for a few weeks, for some one who goes some where sets up and stays there for a longer period of time they are probably perfect. but where I camp were moving around a lot , camping in sand, mud, snow and so on, so I didnt like the idea of what ever you don't sweep off the steps when you fold them, ending up inside your camper.

I considered the one piece, fold into RV, steps. Cost and dirt into RV made me think twice. I want step stability. Found these that were discussed on a previous thread....

Lippert Solid Stance

Has anyone used them? What were your results?

Another vote for Glowsteps. Assuming I posted this link correctly, this discussion may be of some help:
