Video Transcript for Stromberg Carlson RV and Camper Steps AC-530 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail for RVs. This is a commercial handrail that helps you steady yourself as you go up and down steps and ramps, really helps increase safety and adds stability. It's going to be perfect for motorhomes but it can also be used in a variety of applications like portable restrooms as well as support vehicles. The folding rail is going to secure in the open position with a unique locking mechanism so, you can see, located right here it's got this bolt with a flat washer, split lock washer, and then it's going to have this fastener right here which is just like a wingnut. It's going to have a lock nut on it as well. Same set up down here.What you can do to lock it in the open position like this is you can tighten that all the way up and that's going to prevent it from being able to fold to the side.

When you do want to fold it to the side, make sure that these are loosened top and bottom, which I already have the bottom one loosened up. Then all you have to do is lift up on the rail, rotate it until it's stored out of the way, so it's a really nice, easy to use design. It can be swung to either side of the unit, whatever works best for your application. Then put it in this position when you're ready to use it and simply just tighten your fasteners. Again, you're going to have one on top and one on the bottom.Now the mounting hardware that you need is included.

The unit itself is made from a heavy-duty stainless steel construction so you don't have to worry about rust or corrosion. It's going to do a great job at resisting those. It's going to come with eight screws to get it installed. Simply screws onto your coach's wall studs, allows for a quick and easy installation. The hardware that does come with it is anodized aluminum.When it comes to the dimensions of the rail, I measured from the wall to the furthest out point of the unit and got a measurement of around 24 3/8" deep.

From the top of this bracket to the bottom of this bracket I got a height measurement of around 26 3/4" and then the overall height, so from the top of the bracket to the lowest point right here in a straight line, I got a measurement of around 38". Rail diameter is 1" diameter pipe. Your mount holes, center on center on these brackets up and down, are separated by 1". Side to side is 1 7/16". Then I also took a measurement from the center of this top hole to the center of this top hole and got a measurement of around 24 3/16".

That would be the same if you measure it from center of bottom hole to center of bottom hole, about 24 3/16". This unit's going to have a weight capacity, pulling force of up to 200 pounds.That's going to do it for today's look at the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail.

good product works well for short people 485876

Absolutely love this handrail for my trailer. It has created safety for my wife ,great grandkids as well as myself. It also looks great and make it easy to enter and exit my RV thanks and I would highly recommend this product 570253

- AC-530

Was easy to install no drilling on our Montana 5th wheel ,same manufacturer as the original handrail so same screw hole pattern just unscrew old one and install. bingo done Wife has put her stamp of approval on it as she is unsteady on her feet and this one has a longer extension so she is able to grasp it on her way up the stairs sooner 697454

My wife recently had hip surgery and coming down the four steps from our Toy Hauler made her uneasy as the stock hand rail was not long enough. Installed with ease in about 20 minutes. 4 of the 8 existing holes lined up but that was not an issue as the screws provided we self taping and long enough to provide a solid install. Had my wife try exiting and re-entering the rig and she really likes this rail...feels very sold and safe. Seems well build and looks great! Really like that it folds back for travel like the original... Good investment/addition Also, I really appreciate the ease of the order process and followup by a rep with customer service... The only thing so far that would make this even better would be a rubber grip the entire length...like what comes on the standard rail supplied by the OEM. That said we have ordered some rubber wrapping from E-Trailer... 233533

This product is well made and very sturdy. I would have given it a 5 star if it came with instructions. This handrail should aid my wife getting in and out of our motorhome, she had a stroke years ago and has a balance problem. The only thing I don't like is etrailer lowered the price $31 after I received my order, bad timing. 545074

The handrail is still working great.It still looks like new, no rust still shines. My wife uses it every time she goes in and out of the motor home.

Great addition. Only problem was the hardware. Should have been stainless steel. The galvanized steel bolts react w/ alumimnium. Added a backing plate 428310

I ordered two of these last year and mounted one outside the door and one inside the door of our motorhome. They are priceless! Because of these my 83 year old grandmother can travel in her motorhome with family again. She was having trouble getting in & out, until I installed these awesome grab bars. They installed very easily & securely, folds away perfectly when driving, excellent stainless steel durability, great design, can't recommend them enough. I am very happy with them to say the least. Giving the confidence & freedom of independence to travel again has been priceless to my grandmother & family. 427628

Better than expected! I use this for the steps from our garage into our house. It's solid, looks great and can be swung out of the way if needed for added room in a small 2 car attached garage. 399019

This is exactly what I needed. They price was right and no shipping charge. I have started buying all my trailer supplies from etrailer.com. Thanks 365522

This appears to be very high quality, I'm replacing the original equipment rail on my truck camper and this is quite a bit beefier. Got it because it is bigger than the original. 333308

We don't actually use these on an RV, we use them in the garage. We've installed them next to the three step staircases that lead from the garage to the kitchen and from the garage to the back storage room. (We just installed them on one side of the stairs -- the same side as the door handles.) They are very solid since we were able to screw the mounting blocks into the studs for the doorways. It was nice not having to try to drive any anchors into the concrete floor since they mount on the wall as opposed to a traditional stair rail. We also like the idea that we can fold them out of the way if we need to get a large item through the door or any other time a traditional railing would get in the way. 285469

etrailer is always quick with shipments, the handrail arrived a day earlier than estimated. It fit the original brackets on my 5th wheel, so no extra holes in the wall. If the original composite brackets don't withstand the additional leverage I can always convert to the brackets provided. 284011

I installed this longer handrail because my wife had taken a fall with the old handrail. We really like the additional length. It is working great, still on the original composite brackets.

My wife has arthritis and has difficulty getting up into our RV. This really helps her! We are both very happy with this product. Great service, great product! 283287

- AC-530

This hand rail was even better quality than expected. Local rv dealers should learn to carry quality instead of the cheap stuff they might even sell some. This was even well priced for the quality. I will never need another one. My wife loves the better length access as well. Extremely pleased with all portions of the sale including follow up. 282817

- AC-530

I am very happy with my new hand rail. I received it quickly from etrailer and put it on my 5th wheel. The original railing had 4 screws attaching it so I had to drill 4 additional holes. Everything needed was in kit. Very simple. The entire installation took less than 10 minutes. It works great with my 4 step entry. Looks great too. 258904

Bought this for my mother who is elderly and my sister who has MS. They needed a hand rail that would fasten to the wall and could move out of the way when we needed to move something in and out the door. This worked perfectly! It is designed for a motor home or travel trailer, but worked perfectly in the garage of my mothers home. She did not want to drill holes in the concrete to mount a traditional rail so this worked great. I had to fasten a block to the wall because the mounting bracket was to wide for a standard stud. I mounted a block across 2 studs and mounted this to the blocks. Well made and fairly sturdy. Much sturdier than the aluminum and plastic block one on my travel trailer. 235112

- AC-530

It didn't have any instructions on how to assemble the brackets that bolt to the trailer . springs nuts washers with no instructions on how they went. I was able to use my original brackets after I ran my drill through the old bracket and new handle in position. It is a great addition to our trailer. It is really nessasry for 5th wheel with 4 steps. 226542

- AC-530

Much more heavy duty than the aluminum and plastic hand rail that came on the RV. Out of the box, the mounts did not line up with the existing position on the RV wall. I squeezed the mounts toward each other about 3/4 inch and every thing lined up. The holes lined up with the two already in the RV, I drilled four more pilot holes and installed the screws. Mounted up solid! My only complaint is that the bolts that go thru the mounts to the thumb screws tend to slip against the stainless tubing when you tighten the thumb screws. I used a little super glue to secure the bolt heads, a machined recess would be nice out of the factory. 163359

- AC-530

Fit perfect without drilling new holes. This handrail replaces an ITC unit that the plastic catch locks broke off of. The all aluminum brackets are a good upgrade. 157524
