Video Transcript for MaxxTow Trailer Step Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the 9 by 5 Max Tow Trailer Step, part number MT70089. This Max Tow Trailer Step allows ease of access to get out of your boat trailer, or into your utility trailer, to get into the bench of your ATV or UTV. The bracket itself mounts to the frame and can adjust for different sizes, although you cannot exceed 3 inches wide by 5 inches tall. The step itself measures 9 inches long by 5 inches wide and has this rubber pad on top to ensure solid footing once you're getting into your trailer. This step is made from solid steel construction and has a corrosion resisting gray powder coat finish and be sure not to exceed 300 pound load capacity for this step. Now that we've gone over some of the features of this product, let's go ahead and show you how it installs on our trailer. The first thing we want to do is we want to get a general idea of exactly where we're going to place this step and it's probably going to be right around this area here for us on this one.

Then we will set it up against and we want to adjust to what height it suits us. It looks like we will start there and we'll put our bolts through first and we'll get our back plate and set that in place. We will take our hardware and put it into place as well. That is going to consist of a washer and a nut. Put the washer on first, followed by the nut. We'll do this for the bottom screws as well.

Now to tighten this down, we'll use an 11/16 bit and a ratchet or wrench, it doesn't matter which. We will tighten it down until it is nice and snug against the frame of your trailer, being careful not to bend our bracket back here. Now with it installed, we will do a quick test to make sure it's nice and sturdy. It looks like we are ready to go. With that easy install, we are now ready to climb and get inside our boat, get whatever we need, or get inside our trailer and get whatever we need. There you have it for the 9 by 5 Max Tow Trailer Step, part number MT70089..

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

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

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

- MT70089

the product was much more substantial than i expected! my order arrived promptly, thank you. 660369

- MT70089

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

- MT70089

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Installed it on my boat trailer so I could reach the trim switch when pulling in and out of the garage. I might paint it so it blends in with the trailer. 393077

Installed works great. This product makes it so much easier to get on , off the boat I use. Thanks so much for selling me this product... Thanks... Kennn 739869

Ordered two of these steps from etrailer on Wednesday. Received expedited shipping free. Arrived Saturday and had them mounted in about 15 minutes. I most often launch my 21' Tidewater by myself. When putting the boat back onto the trailer, these steps will make it much safer and easier to simply drive the boat on, step down from the bow, attach the winch hook, finish winching the boat into the bow cradle and step off the trailer tongue onto dry land. The only change I'd make to the product is to offer them in aluminum or at least galvanized steel to help with corrosion and rust. But I'll keep these waxed and otherwise painted with rustoleum to help with that issue. But the service from etrailer was exceptional. 739171

- MT70089

Easy to bolt on on many places on trailer. Good product, makes it easier to get on my boat from trailer 728120

- MT70089

I received my 2 trailer steps yesterday. I’m impressed with the sturdiness and quality of this product not to mention the quality of customer service I always have received from etrailer. The price of my trailer steps was very good as well. 726059

- MT70089

perfect adjunct for single person trailering when mounted on winch post 714326

- MT70089

Appears to be extremely well built. Recommend sending small length bolts. Maybe could ask what size bolts customer would like. 702975

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!
    view full answer...
  • 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.
    view full answer...
  • 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.

    We have a few options for you to consider in a platform for your boat trailer tongue. We don't carry a specific walk board, but we do have some similar items like the following: HitchMate Boat Trailer Step - 5" Wide x 9" Long - 400 lbs # HE4036 MaxxTow Trailer Step for up to 3" x 5" Frame - 9" Long x 5" Wide - Steel # MT70089 CE Smith Galvanized Steel Step for 2" Trailer Frame - 15-1/4" Long x 3" Wide # CE26212G-15284GA I've attached some videos to assist.

  • 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...
