Speaker 1: Today we're gonna take a look at the Lend-A-Hand Extended Aluminum Folding Grab Handle for RVs. This is an extra large fold-out rail, makes entering and exiting your RV safer and easier. The rail offers stability and convenience as you climb into and out of your RV. And this new rail will extend out and down to meet the needs of the new fold-down step craze. It extends out an additional 10 inches, and down an additional 13 1/2 inches to help the user maintain balance. But when you do install this, it fits the same footprint as the standard size Lend-A-Hand rail.Locking mechanisms right here.

This is what would be bolted to your RV, and you just lift it up and rotate it out just like that. And then you can use the handle. The locking mechanisms secure the handle in the open position for use, and if you fold it back in, in the stow position for travel.This is an aluminum construction. It's very lightweight and rust-proof, has a nice black powder-coat finish on it to help resist corrosion. If you notice on the handle dyke down here, it has a black foam padding to provide a nice, comfortable grip.It is a simple installation, mounts to the RV's sidewall next to your door with these four included two inch screws.

And it can be mounted on the left or the right side of the door. Now, it may require drilling through the wall of your RV, so you want to use long bolts with washers or a plate that we do sell separately if a door stud cannot be found. This part is made in the U.S.A.A few overall specs on this: The total height of this is 37 inches tall. The width is 25 1/2 inches wide, and the distance between these mounting brackets is 19 1/4 inches.But that should do it for the review on the Lend-A-Hand Extended Aluminum Folding Grab Handle for RVs.

Super quick delivery, we are so pleased. We are ordering a second hand railing. This hand railing does everything as promised. Really easy to install. 602189

The extended handle makes entering our trailer much easier. I would especially recommend if someone has limited strength in there arm/shoulder. The installation was very easy as it used the same mounting holes as the original handle. 672226

I bought two of these for our travel trailer. My wife has mobility issues and this has very helpful to her. They were relatively easy to install. Most trailers have very limited blocking in the wall so it is best if they can be attached at the same attachment points as the original handles. Not the same holes just the same general location. 667744

etrailer , great product thank you 634181

I installed one of these at both trailer doors. They have been terrific. After a knee and hip joint replacement surgeries and arthritis in the others, my wife is mobility challenged. Not only do these handrails help her get into the trailer, it gives her more confidence about getting in. You should realize there is a chance there may not be blocking at your mounting locations but this is somewhat mitigated by the fact there are 3 screws per mounting block. Special fasteners may be advisable. 628110

Bought this unit for my 89 year young mother in law. Needed to get her a little more help with the camper steps. Easy to install and worked just like we planned. She now has places to put both hands on the rail and they start nice and low too. Perfect. 517518

received the handle in a very short period of time. My wife had knee replacement surgery and the extended handle gives her more stability for going up the stairs to our camper. It is also a great safety factor being to reach the handle from the ground. 496352

Ask the Experts about this Stromberg Carlson Accessories and Parts

  • Will Lend-a-Hand Grab Handle Require Drilling
    Trailer manufacturers don't keep records of the exact parts they have so there would really be no way to know if the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 will mount exactly inline with the existing door on your Keystone Springdale. The mounting brackets of this handle are 19-1/4" apart so you can measure where your current grab handle is to see if it has that distance. If it does not you will need to drill to install the grab handle. I have added a link to a video...

  • Diameter of Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle
    I went out to the warehouse and found that the diameter of the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 is right at 0.99". We actually carry the Foam Grip Wrap for Lend-a-Hand Grab Handles # FP-1002-R that you can use for this application! Attached are review videos you can check out as well.

  • Does Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle AM-533 Include Hardware
    The Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 does include four mounting screws for installation on an RV door stud. The handle can mount on either side of a door but it folds in only one direction (toward the rear of the RV when mounted on the passenger side).

  • Mounting Hole Locations on Lend-a-Hand Folding Handrail for RV
    The Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs - Black with Black Foam Grip - Aluminum # AM-533 have brackets that have three holes in each. I went out to our warehouse to measure for you and the holes from top bracket to bottom bracket are all 23-3/4 inches on center. On each bracket there are two holes vertically and they are 1-1/8 inch on center. Then there is one horizontal hole aligned with the top hole of each bracket and to the right of it which is also 1-1/8 inch on...

  • Mounting Bracket Spacing of Lend-a-Hand Grab Handle AM-533
    The mounting bracket spacing of the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 is 19-1/4 inches as opposed to 31 inches, and this handle has the closest spacing to the 17-3/4 inches you mentioned needing. If you are having a bit of trouble with the install and cannot find a door stud what you can do instead is just use 1/4"-20 bolts with washers and you'll be able to secure the rail.

  • Replacement Lend a Hand Handle for 2015 Forest River Cherokee 16BHS Camper Trailer
    Yes, the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-533 that you referenced will fit your 2015 Forest River Cherokee 16BHS. The mounting bracket dimensions will be the same as what you have since this was designed to be as universal as possible and fit that standard bracket dimensions on RVs that is 19-1/4 inches apart. The extra dip in the handle will also be easier for kids to reach. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Exterior Folding Handrail for 2015 Grand Design 385TH Toy Hauler
    RV makers don't keep track of items such as the door railings that they install on their trailers but since the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 can fold in either direction it should work great for your Grand Design 385TH toy hauler. The distance between the mounting brackets is 19-1/4-inches so you can compare this to your handle mounts. If you cannot find a door stud for mounting you can locally source long bolts and a plate to provide a secure mounting point. Four...

  • Is There a Handrail Available For The Lippert SolidStep Fold-Down Steps
    I do have an option for you but the Lippert Handrail for Victory Step Manual Fold-Down Steps part # LC726866 is designed for the Victory Step fold-down steps. From your photo, it looks like you have a Lippert Solid Step like part # LC698799 and there is not a handrail available that mounts directly to the solid step. However, you can use the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs - Black with Black Foam Grip part # AM-533 which is going to attach the door frame stud and give...

  • RV Step Rail Recommendation That Has Round Handle
    I would agree that a round handle for RV steps would be easier to grab and would feel more natural than a square shape. A better option for you might be the Lend A Hand Handle part # AM-533 which does have a round handle shape and has a pad for grabbing onto that helps as well.

  • Does Lippert SolidStep Have a Handle Available?
    If you were referring to a handrail, there is one available that would work with the Lippert SolidStep # LC678044. The Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-533 mounts to the side of your RV door, locks when in use and locks again in the stowed position when it is not in use. I've added a link to a video review of this handrail for you to take a look at.

  • Recommended Hand Rail for Electric Steps on RV
    The TorkLift GlowGuide Handrail # TLA7621 referenced in your question is designed to work with TorkLift scissor step assemblies. It can technically be used on assemblies from other manufacturers, but you will not be able to physically attach the handrail to the steps. This is because the handrail will use mounting brackets specific to the TorkLift step design. In order to use this with the electric steps on your Holiday Rambler RV, you would likely need to extend the vertical rail down...

  • Handrail Recommendation for Electric RV Steps
    The Stromberg Carlson Rail Mate, # AP-101, that you mentioned is designed for use with manual steps only. However, Stromberg Carlson does make the Lend-a-Hand XL Folding Grab Handle, # AM-533, that can be mounted to the RV and used with electric steps. This handrail securely locks in place while in use and locks in the stowed position alongside the RV when not in use. Another great accessory to have for your RV is the TempMinder Digital Thermometer, # MRI-122AG, which displays indoor...

  • Can TorkLift GlowGuide Handrail be Used with Other Brand Scissor Steps
    The TorkLift GlowGuide Handrail # TLA7621 referenced in your question is designed specifically for the TorkLift scissor step assemblies. I spoke with my contact at TorkLift and he said that this unit can technically be used with other brand units, but you will not be able to physically attach the handrail to the steps. This is because the handrail uses mounting brackets that are specific to the TorkLift step design. In order to use this with your existing scissor steps, you will likely...

  • Handrail Recommendation for Use with SolidStep RV System
    Since the SolidStep RV Steps fold up into the interior of the camper you'd need to use a hand rail that attaches to only the outside of the camper like the Stromberg # AM-533. This folds out when needed and would work great. The # AP-101 wouldn't work with a SolidStep.

  • Recommended Handrail for Use with Lippert SolidStep Assembly
    While there isn't a handrail available that will attach directly to the Lippert StolidStep Assembly # LC678041, we do have options that will attach to the trailer/RV that will work well. I recommend taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle # AM-533. This 37 inch x 25-1/2 inch rail will mount to either side of your door to offer stability as you climb the steps. It features locking mechanisms that secure the handle in the open position for use or in the stowed...
