Rugged - sensible - easy to install. The most difficult decision you will have to make is which foot to put on this as you enter / exit your boat... which will determine where you mount this step. Also know that if you mount it too close to your vehicle, it could run into your vehicle bumper if you make a extremely tight turn. It sliced into my Jeep Wrangler's plastic rear bumper. Gee too bad - guess I have to purchase a heavy duty rear bumper like i have on the front! Enjoy!

Installed MaxxToe Step today. Product arrived in damaged box. However the item looked good, made of heavy metal stock, paint finish good, installation was easy, all parts were in the box. However, would like to see the step 2” higher. I believe it would make it easier for the boater to make the next step on to the deck. The installation bolts were to long for my mount. I purchased shorter bolts it gave a neater cleaner look. Do understand why longer bolts are used for multiple uses.

I've been doing a balancing beam act everytime I launch my boat. Recently I started taking my 2 grandsons and wanted to make sure I was being safe. I ordered 2 steps and mounted them side by side to create a stable wide platform by the boat winch. I'm now confident I won't take an accidental spill! Great product!

- MT70089

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

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.

Seems very well made. Easy to install. Fast shipping from etrailer.

- 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.

Great! Can be installed on the most appropriate part of the trailer for ease of climbing on board.

I love this step it's big enough to step on without falling and it does not get in the way. As a matter of fact this is the second one I'm going to put on right across from my last one I bought from you. Putting a trolling motor on the other side so I don't know what size I'll be getting on but the other one works so good I can't wait to put this one on. And it looks awesome always have comments. People say how good it looks.

Awesome safe Looks great

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.

- MT70089

The step works great used it today loading the boat have to crawl off front of boat to ratchet it tight, stepped on to step than on spare tire made it a lot safer and was easier, so far good buy bolted on like I had planned so far good idea and I really like it.

- 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.

- MT70089

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.

- MT70089

It is well made and adapted to my trailer very well I am please with the product.

- MT70089

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.

- MT70089

Great product to add that extra step to a boat trailer for boarding.

- MT70089

This is an excellent product and a great price. It fit my boat trailer perfect.

- MT70089

The steps look great and fit very well I put them on a boat trailer to help snap on the boat cover it is going to make it a lot easier thanks I hope the picture works

- MT70089

Well made product that can be easily mounted in a convenient location on a yrailer

- MT70089

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

- MT70089

These bolt-on steps are great! Just what our drift boat trailer needed. Thanks.

- MT70089

Quality well built step

- MT70089

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.

Still working GREAT. I highly recommend them.
Bob - 07/25/2018

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.

Works great. My husband loves it because it keeps him from slipping off the trailer tongue when loading boat back on trailer.
GERRIE M - 06/10/2018

- MT70089

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

- MT70089

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

- MT70089

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

Very good product and great addition to help get out of and in the boat. Good company to buy from and always willing to provide assistance to customers. Again very good quality product.

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Boat Trailer Parts

  • Will MaxxTow Trailer Step MT70089 Fit Winch Brace On A 2021 Nitro Z18 Bass Boat Trailer?
    The MaxxTow Trailer Step for up to 3" x 5" Frame - 9" Long x 5" Wide - Steel # MT70089 will fit any frame that is 3" x 5" or smaller, so if the winch support brace on your 2021 Z18 Nitro Bass Boat is this size or smaller it will fit perfectly. I included a video of the # MT70089 and a picture of it installed on the winch brace for you to take a look at.

  • 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.

  • Is the MaxxTow Trailer Step MT70089 Available in Aluminum or a Galvanized Finish?
    The MaxxTow Trailer Step for up to 3" x 5" Frame - 9" Long x 5" Wide # MT70089 does only come as powder coated steel. This will offer corrosion resistance, but it will also need to be kept clean to keep this up. We do have a galvanized step available, but it is a different design. The Polar Hardware Folding Assist Step # PLR900 will have a galvanized finish and has multiple applications. The mounting holes will measure 4 inches from center to center though, so depending on how tall your...

  • 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...
