Received my trailer step today 7-15-19 and installed it on the trailer tongue.Fit perfectly and was coated with a coating that will protect it for many years.I might order one more for the trailer winch upright post so I can get off the boat easier when boating alone.Thanks. 670742

- MT70089

Good addition for the angler that launches a boat by themselves. 710803

This is a good cheap alternative to a full step with handle. If you are in an area where rust is a concern, purchase the aluminum model.

Installed on boat trailer ffg or bow disembarking on solo launch. Fit as expected. Sturdy. 690647

- MT70089

This thing was just what I was looking for at a very very reasonable price. I just needed one step and not three like most places sell for over $400. I am glad I found this and will be recommending it to others. It really helps me get in and out of my deep V while launching and storing when i come back. 754968

The v-stop, crank and steps are first class, well made and fit perfectly, with good instructions and easy installation. But the boat guides by Smith were not so good. The metal was galvanized and had a lot of sharp edges. I cleaned up the sharp edges (remember, kids play areound the boat and trailer) and the metal looked cheap that way, so I painted everything. I suggest that you contact Smith and tell them to add "break all edges" to their manufacturing process, as well as at least add a coat of primer ot the metal. Overall, I rate the products with 4 stars and the service at etrailer as AWESOME! 695457

I bought this to make it easier to climb onto the bow of my boat from the tongue of the trailer when launching. It's an alternative to stepping on the winch gear. Firstly the step looks well worth the $25. It seems well made, very robust and coated with something that encourages me to think it will last in a wet environment. There are two issues: the first may be minor. There's a 2" groove in the support bar that goes through the protective covering. Probably a manufacturing mistake. We'll see if it affects the corrosion. The second problem is a bigger problem to me and maybe to others. The product will not fit a vertical 3"x 5" frame. There is only one way to fit the product and if one is trying to fit it to a vertical 3" x 5" frame it can't be done without buying longer bolts. This was my fault for not thinking it through before I bought the product so only four stars because of the manufacturing fault. If you were buying this to fit to a horizontal frame I would give it a strong recommendation. 660995

I installed these steps (I bought several of them) on my Bass Tracker boat trailer. I have an 18.5 foot Jon boat and could not get into the boat without difficulty. These steps are great. The boat is wide enough that the steps do not protrude out from the frame to be "knee busters!" and a great addition to the trailer's functionality. I did use stainless steel carriage bolts to install the steps so the bolts wouldn't rust. 410420

Still working GREAT. I highly recommend them.

Solid, sturdy product. Bolts, washers, lock nuts will likely need a bath of Never Seez or similar for salt water environment protection. Though I normally utilize a step-on fender to access the boat, this accessory step is mounted way forward on the frame for quickly exiting the boat in the bow area in order to hook up the manual winch when boating alone. Given that my I-beam trailer frame bows inward approaching the winch stand area, a step that extended outward (thus away from boat gunwale) several more inches would serve my purposes even better. None is made to my knowledge. Overall, this unit will work and seem very well made. 422166

I ordered 2 of these for my husband's boat trailer to make it easier and safer to climb on it to tie the boat down after loading it on the trailer. He loves it and I feel better about him going fishing by himself or with someone else. He put one on each side of the trailer tongue to add a safe step to stand on while tying the boat to the trailer up front. 391642

Works great. My husband loves it because it keeps him from slipping off the trailer tongue when loading boat back on trailer.

Added to spare tire carrier. Just the right height 422313

Easy to install and works great for me tog off and back on my boat doing loading up when fishing by myself. 516442

Very nice, good and stout. 584418

- MT70089

Seems to be well made, only issue was one of the mounting bolts was a different size than the other three. Have to see once I take the boat out to see if it does what I need 584234

This step has made getting into my boat from the tongue of the trailer so much easier!!! I go out Alone a lot, and I don’t have to worry about launching or loading up any more. Great product and fast shipping. 525350

- MT70089

A great item for loading and unloading boat. 905539

- MT70089

Gave me just the right distance to step off while loading my boat 887142

- MT70089

This trailer step is excellent. Installed it the day I received it. Just as described and very sturdy. Used it as a top, (last step before bow railing) much easier now to board ontothe bow when on trailer. Thank you for the quick delivery! 883758

- MT70089

Mounted the step on the side of my wench post of my trailer. The step works great for stepping off the bow down onto the trailer tongue after loading the boat on the trailer on unimproved launches. 881452

Nice product was exactly what I was expecting! Quick delivery time as well 880690

It seems to be a good unit. I do like it. I gave it 4 stars because the hardware was not stainless steel and the flat washers and lock washers were the wrong size. Had to go to the Home Depot. 877122

Just what I asked for. That is a real accomplish these days. 872842

The overall product is good, but the welded points continue to rust. The weld have to be sanded and rust protected. 868823

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Boat Trailer Parts

  • Can the MaxxTow Trailer Step be Mounted at an Angle on a Boat Trailer
    The only real stipulation for the MaxxTow Trailer Step # MT70089 is that it is mounted on a 3" x 5" frame which means you can get creative. If you check out the attached picture a customer sent in it looks like they did exactly what you are wanting to do!

  • Will The MaxxTow Trailer Step Fit My 3-1/4 by 5-1/4 Trailer Frame?
    I went into the warehouse to do some specific measuring for you and it looks like it may fit although it will be tight with the hardware. The footprint of the holes is 6-3/4 inches by 3-7/8 inches. I've attached a picture to help you see these measurements.

  • Will the Trailer Steps Mount on Winch Stand of Pontoon Trailer?
    Although the design of the MaxxTow Trailer Step for up to 3" x 5" Frame # MT70089 was not intended for the winch mount, these have been used for similar applications as you can see from this customer photo. The angle for a flat surface may not be possible, but you will be able to have something usable. The multiple holes will allow some flexibility in mounting options, but the 300 lb capacity rating was passed on a horizontal frame mount.

  • Can the MaxxTow Trailer Step # MT70089 Be Installed on Aluminum I-Beam Trailer Frame
    As long as your trailer frame is no larger than 3" x 5" the MaxxTow Trailer Step # MT70089 will install on an aluminum I-beam frame.

  • Can Two of MaxxTow Trailer Step MT70089 Be Installed Back-to-Back
    Yes, so long as you still use the included mounting hardware for the installation you could install two of the MaxxTow Trailer Step # MT70089 back to back, not using the included flat plates that are required for individual installation. But do note that this will NOT double the weight capacity for either step, which remains at 300-lbs maximum per step.

  • Strength of Steel Fender to Withstand 200 lb Utilizing as a Step
    The Single Axle Trailer Fender # F9X32-1RTP is made of 14 gauge steel and has one edge that is a 90 degree angle to weld it to your trailer and the other has a more rolled edge. The strength of the fender and ability to hold 200 lbs is based on your mounting. To stand on this fender, you will need to not only weld the edge but also as you stated add brackets which will support the weight. The steel is strong, but I recommend using brackets that can hold the weight on their own to ensure...

  • Trailer Mounted Step That Can Be Installed on Trailer Tongue Near Tool Box
    The DeeZee Specialty Series Trailer Tongue Toolbox # DZ91717P is made of tough polyethylene plastic that is naturally non-corrosive and sturdy but it is not expressly meant for a person to step or stand on it. A child or a person that weighs 110-lbs could probably do so briefly without mishap but a sturdy fellow that weighs 280-lbs probably should not. But we DO have handy step products that might be worth considering for installation near this tool box's same trailer tongue mounting...
