This is just what I needed for the front door of my travel trailer. It matches the grab handle on the rear door exactly, same brand, same dimensions. Installation was fast and easy, and now I am more comfortable using that secondary entrance. Fast shipping and great service as usual from etrailer

Excellent! I feel more secure entering and exiting the secondary door on my travel trailer



by:

Three photos of my recent handrail purchase are attached. They
show the rail folded flat against the side of the trailer, in
position for use with the stairs and across the door for travel.

This is a 2017 Keystone trailer. I left the small original grab
handle in place.

Thank you for the great service!

WE ORDERED THE LEND-A-HAND FOLDING GRAB HANDLE TO REPLACE ONE ON OUR RV THAT WAS DAMAGED. WE RECIEVED AN EMAIL THAT IT HAD BEEN SHIPPED. IT ARRIVED ON TIME, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND WAS ALL WE EXPECTED IT TO BE. VERY HAPPY WITH THE PRODUCT AND THIS COMPANY!



by:

The Grab handle works great! I Received it Pretty quickly, And the install Was very easy. I don't think it took more than 10 minutes to install.



by:

Easy to instal, works as advertised very happy



by:

Just finished the install on the rear door of a grand design momentum/ it will help my wife feel safer as it gives her a handle to hold all the way down the steps/ easy install just follow the direction I left the original handle in place and put the top of the new handle about two inches above the old so we can use either

We now have a working Video Remote Trailer Which all persons can get inside of Thank you so much Earl and Pam Clark.

The folding Handles are being used on a Mobile Video Studio Trailer A remote Trailer they have work out very well Thank you so Much



by:

It installs easy and is sturdy enough but the foam leave marks on the door or wall it folds against when not in use. Solution; Wrap with gorilla tape when you install it.



by:

Worked as advertised, Speedy shipment and easy to install. I would use etrailer‘s website again.



by:

It worked as intended although it was lighter in construction than the original



by:

This the second of these handles I have installed and it works great. This unit went on a friends camper she is a little unstable on her feet so a big help



by:

Great quality. Operates as described and was easy to install. Comes with screws which was super helpful. Would definitely recommend when replacing or installing new.



by:

Great product at a good price with timely shipping..



by:

Item arrived on time. It was a direct fit with the original handle which made installation easy. Etrailer kept in touch through the entire process. This will be my go-to source for trailer parts and supplies.



by:

Came just like it was supposed to. Even had the Fasteners to bolt it to the side of the trailer. Works great super add-on



by:

All is fine. Just replacing the handle as the foam grip deteriorated and ripped on the original.
I do note the the new handle assy has a third mounting hole where the original had only two. Not a big deal But I won't be drilling another hole.



by:

Great ad on to my traier…. Must have…

Still handles well, literally... I dont see this item going anywhere but camping... The foam padding is slightly beginning to tear on the ends but I do know that replacement padding in the future is a simple DIY fix...



by:

Website easy to navigate. Product arrived right away & looks to be of excellent quality.



by:

Love these, have them on both of my campers, all doors. I just feel safer going up and down the steps when I have a good handle to hang onto. These fold away, which makes them even more awesome!



by:

I already have one of these on the front of our toy hauler. This one is for the back door. Our back door has a small handle so this makes it safer to enter and exit.

Jim T.

Handle is working great. We are full timing in our toy hauler so it’s used everyday. Finish is like new. It easily swivels in and out and is staying tight.



by:

Easy to order, easy to receive althogh I expected it to come to the house and not the Post Office.

Installed like a breeze, works like it should. Very satisfied.



by:

Hand rail installed easily enough. The pilot hole mentioned in the directions is just that--a pilot hole for a larger drill bit needed for the large screws. The hand rail works and looks great.
I'll always check etrailer first. If you don't have it I'll be forced to reluctantly go to another store.



by:

I do not usually write a lot of reviews, but in this case the product warrants it. I had lost the handle on my fifth wheel and needed a new one. The video for this handle was great as I was able to measure from hole to hole and it was an exact match. Making install much easier and without having to drill additional holes and anchors. So product was as described and shipping and payment was with issue.



by:

Doesn’t show how many screws it is to have. We needed 2 and this one had 3. Very disappointing.

Katrina B.

I have looked into the mounting holes on this handle, and it does indeed need three. I have gotten a picture of the mounting holes added to our site.



by:

Got exactly what I wanted. E-Trailer has a great variety of products and fast deleivery.

  • Will Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle Fold Both Ways
    Yes, the Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle # AM-800 will fold both ways against the wall of the wall. It measures about 15-1/4 inches away from the wall when in the usable position.

  • Backing Plate to Install Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle
    There isn't a specific plate but you could use backing plate # BPEZ or something similar. Without a door stud present the material of the trailer cannot support the stress of someone pulling on the handle. A plate will disperse the force to a larger area.

  • How to Remove Spring From Older Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle
    To swap out your new Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-800 handle to fit the older mounting bracket you have all you'll need to do is cut that lock washer and the bolt will be free to come out. You'll need to use the new hardware from your new Lend-a-Hand to install the new handle since it has a lock nut that will keep the spring in place. Depending on the size of everything you may need a washer as well if you have to reuse the old spring.

  • Is There a Stud Around RV Door Frame to Install Folding RV Handle
    Around the frame of your door would be studs like you are wanting to install a larger RV handle into like the Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle for RV # AM-800. If you installed this close to the door frame like what you have you'd hit a stud like you are wanting.

  • Will the Replacement Hardware Kit for Stromberg Carlson Lend-A-Hand Fit Other Grab Handles
    The Replacement Hardware Kit for Stromberg Carlson Lend-A-Hand and Mini Lend-A-Hand Grab Handles for RVs part # 1091 is an exact replacement part for the Stromberg Carlson Lend-A-Hand and Mini Lend-A-Hand grab handles as the title states, it is not really a retro-fit type of product so I am not sure I would have much advice on how to do so. However, I can confirm that the grab handle this kit is designed to work with has a 1" diameter. That said, the best option for you would be to just...

  • Will Shim for Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handles Move Lend-A-Hand Outward
    Yes, the Shim for Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handles for RVs # 5991-SM that you referenced will move the Lend a Hand part # AM-800 further from where it mounts to the RV.

  • Dimensions of Mounting Holes on Lend a Hand RV Handle AM-800
    The vertical distance between the mounting holes of the # 5991-SM are 1-1/8 inches. When you use this shim you only use either the left or the right set of holes. I attached a picture that shows the back side of the Lend a Hand # AM-800 mounting bracket that shows this.

  • Recommended Hand Rail For A 2017 Jayco Jayflight SLX
    The first thing that comes to mind is a folding grab handle since it will permanently install to the side of the camper. A really good option is the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533. The handle itself is 37" tall and 25-1/2" wide so there is plenty of railing to grab on to. It can be installed on either flat or corrugated surfaces, you just want to be sure it is secured to the wood framing or a wall stud. The picture below shows one installed on a camper very similar...

  • TorkLIft Glow Steps for 2014 Lance 1995
    The TorkLIft # TLA8102 will be a good fit for your trailer if the "Entry Height" is between 18-1/2" and 28" and the Mounting Bracket width is no more than 25-1/2". To determine Entry Height, measure from the ground up to the top of the the bracket frame that held the old steps. The product page has a picture showing how to measure. Then, determine the "Mounting Bracket Width". If your mounting bracket is no more than 25-1/2" wide then the # TLA8102 is a fit. If you have different measurements...

This grab handle measures 24" tall, 14" wide, and is black in color, however if you're able to let me know what size handle you're needing replaced I'd be happy to find you a correct replacement.

  • Could Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle Lock You in RV
    Your concern about being potentially trapped inside your RV is certainly a valid one, and also a common one with the Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand. While there isn't a way to easily stop it from pivoting across the front of the door, there truly is nothing to worry about here as it will not trap you inside your RV. If some mean individual did try and do that to you for some reason, all you would need to do is push your door open and the handle will flip back into place without issue. I...

  • Recommended Way to Two Handles for RV Steps
    Sounds like you are looking for a way to have two handles on your RV. One further out to help with the lower steps and one closer to the body which helps more on the higher steps. For that the best option would be the Lend-A-Hand part # AM-800 which has a distance of 19-1/4 inches between the mounting brackets and then the Soft Touch Assist Handle # AH-150 mounted between those brackets as it has an overall length of 18-1/2 inches. This would be a much better solution than trying to shim...

  • Adjustable Platform Step recommendation For 2004 Jayco 23B Trailer
    For your 2004 Jayco 23B trailer I recommend the Adjustable-Height Folding Plastic Platform Step, part # S-150. This has adjustable height legs that let you change the step height from 4 inches to 8 inches. It also features a 24 inch by 16 inch platform and has an open-grated tread surface that helps reduce the amount of dirt that can be tracked into the trailer. This step has a weight capacity of 300 lbs and has folding legs for easy storage when it is not needed. We do not carry any permanently...

  • Replacement Steps For Wolf Pup Travel Trailer
    The Wolf Pups sit pretty close to the ground. You are likely at the cusp of 2 steps is not enough and three steps may be too many. To measure for replacement steps, first measure the "entry height" which is the height from the ground to the top of the steps mounting flange. Then measure the inside width of the bracket that holds the steps. If the inside width of your steps mounting bracket is 25-1/2", and your entry height is 18-1/2" to 28", then the TorkLift # TLA8003 will be a good...
