Video Transcript for Brophy Hitch Stair Trailer Hitch Step Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy hitch step. This is the 2-step style. It's designed for use in 2" hitches. It's part number is RHS2. It's a 2-step stair. It's designed to help get into the back of campers, on a pickup truck to get in the bed of campers.

A few other uses that we found it to be really good for is like on this Suburban here, we've got the roof rack up there. We're easily able to step up on here and access anything in the back portion of that rack that we need to get to that maybe our side steps don't allow us to get up onto the roof to do. Also, this is a great thing to have if you're out cleaning your vehicle, so you can really get up here to the roof and get a good angle on it and get it nice and clean. This is a completely assembly-free item. It's made of welded construction at all the connection points, so there's no bolts to deal with or anything to loosen up. It's got a black powder-coat finish on it.

We have 3 positions to choose from when we install it. We've got the first hole here, 6-1/2" from the back of our first step. The second hole's 3-1/2" from the back of that step. The third one that we see here is just a 1/2" behind the rear of the step. So this is going to give you multiple positions to fit a wide variety of vehicles. Now that we've gone over some of the key features, I'll show you how to install it.

It's a very simple process. Just like you would a ball mount, we're just going to slide it into the receiver tube of the hitch, line up one of the pin holes that we want to use. I'm thinking this application, that middle one looked like it worked the best. So we're just going to slide it in till the pin holes are lined up. Slide through our pin and secure it with our clip.

Now the pin and clip are sold separately. You can find those on our website as part number Pc3. Our steps have a diamond plate surface. That's going to help us out if we ever have any mud, rain, or snow on our shoes. The Brophy hitch stair offers a 250-lb. capacity. That will complete today's look at the Brophy 2-step hitch there, designed for use with 2" hitches, part number RHS2. .

Well as a truck camper owner the big, big thing is always getting up into the rig. These steps are highly talked of online. I like them and knew they would solve my entering problem. They did....but they are very awkward and bulky to travel with.... I actually think they should make them break down for tvavel... etrailer.com....seemed to work hard to ship my order fast and etrailer seems to be very willing to work hard at reasonable prices... .So, I must try to help etrailer on this one honest mistake..... When my order shipped, etrailer combined my two items..one BIG BuLKY. Awkwad set of steps.....with my hitch-lock that goes in it.... Well the awkward steel steps ripped and gashed its cardboard box in about 3 or 4 areas. There was no packing foam or bunched news paper... This poor master hitch lock hadn't a chance.....it rattled around on the steps and got bashed out of its little box......and out of its internal bag....and its little set of keys likely went bye bye out one of 4 big box gashes..... So, now I need to... somehow get new keys to this lock...it is useless as is..... If etrailer can send keys the key number is on the box as : 1480 KA. Key:0501. If etrailer sends me a working hitch-lock with keys... my problem is solved... Aside of this unfortunate happening, I am happy with the price and quality and service that eTrailer has delivered...I just need this one little issue fixed to give etrailer 5 Stars.! Thank You for your concern Chas Youngs Poughkeepsie, NY 420012

I came upon a reference to this product while searching on line for a receiver-mounted platform to replace the folding step stool we had been using to enter our Four-Wheel camper. It appeared to be just what we needed, and I found that it was an almost perfect fit. The top step is at nearly the same level as the step built into the bumper of our 2001 GMC Sierra, so this provides a large level place for our feet when we are exiting the camper. With the step unit inserted into the receiver with the middle hitch pit hole aligned, there is only a very small gap between the top step and the bumper step. I am not sure yet if we will be traveling with the steps in place, but I did install reflective red tape on the back edges of both steps, and on each side of the lower step, so that it is more visible. Be aware that the mounting bar of the step unit is not a tight fit in the receiver, so there is some movement when weight is placed off-center on the steps. Wrapping tape around the mounting bar, or perhaps inserting shims, might improve this situation. 142229

Hi, Shipping was fast. I believe the stairs are going to work great. The height is perfect. They are a little wobbly but I was thinking if I just find the right item to fit in the crease that will do the trick. Also was thinking I would get some sort of rubber edging so I don't bang up my shins. The receiver lock will ease my mind for the stairs not to walk away too easily. Thank You. 213348


Comments

the stairs work great. Great height. Way easier for my knees and back. Used a large washer to shove in the space of the hitch to stop the wobble. The stairs work great. I stopped the wobble by using a metal washer in the space to make a snug fit for my hitch.

allows easy access to my 4x4 ram bed even when the tailgate is on. should work very well when we use it with our truck camper too. solid well made product. 79046


Comments

Since getting the truck steps they were a little slippery when wet so I coated them with some black metallic rust o leum textured paint which gives them a sandpaper like finish.

Product was built fine but did not work for our camper.The door on our palomino pop up truck camper is offset to the left ,not over the ball. it would have been very dangerous to attempt to usethis step. someone would miss the step and tumble to the ground potentialy causing great harm. I would advise future buyers with Palomino pop up campers that this product will not work for them. I have taken the step to a metal fabricator to resovle this problem albeit with additional costs. 128569

Being somewhat disabled I had a hard time exiting my boat. With the help of these steps it is no longer an issue. These steps are solid. I used a small bumper receiver mounted unto the riser. Much easier to exit the boat now without the fear of missing my step on the trailer beam and falling or slipping. 390978

This two step hitch stair setup was exactly what I was looking for to provide easy access to our truck camper. The steps feel very solid and secure when going in and out of the camper. I bolted on some 2x10s to make the steps even a bit larger. I painted the wood and added antislip strips for safety. I also offset the wood steps a bit as our camper door is offset to the left. Silas the dog has no trouble going up and down these stairs! Great price for a great product! 258102

These steps are just what I was looking for!!!!, they fit perfectly on my truck to get up to our Grandby Shell model Four Wheel Camper, it is a 8' unit fit on my 2003 Dodge Ram Quad cab ( 6'2" BED), which means my tailgate is down, and not able to use the step bumper, bought a hitch extender to tow the boat, and these steps to get in the camper, they fit exactly as advertised, and the rise on them is spot on, GLAD I got this brand, you will not be disappointed!!! Shipping was fast, and the whole experience was painless, will order from these folks again!!! 300720

This step is a lot more sturdy than I anticipated when I bought it. It doesn't twist at all when I step on just one side or the other and it is about the right step separation distance for getting into the back of the camper door on a slide in camper. I thought about putting some grip tape used on skateboards on the steps but so far it doesn't seem to need extra traction. (the skateboarder kids buy sheets of the sand coated tape the size of a skateboard for way less than buying the same stuff at a parts house) The step is rather solid. 290448

I use the stairs on my Ford F150 with our Real Lite truck camper. My wife and I are completely satisfied with the stairs. Our truck is high off the ground and we are in our mid 60s and the stairs really make entering and exiting our camper much easier. There is a little wobble which is due to our camper door not being centered on the camper, it sits a few inches to the driver's side of the camper, but we've learned how to enter and exit in order to not experience any wobble at all. We are very happy with our purchase. 338355

If you have a truck camper, this step is a necessary addition. I've used this step in conjunction with a Lance 835 on a Dodge 3500 Dually. I'm in and out of my camper multiple times during the day when traveling. This step allows easy, fast ingress and egress. I recommend you don't use a hitch pin with this step. Use a bolt, two flat washers, lock washer and not. Tighten the bolt until all side to side play is removed. Much more stable and sold than a hitch pin, which allows some wobble. 457879

I received my 2 step hitch stair in excellent condition. I'm impressed with the service and delivery. I unpacked it this morning and can say that the quality is exactly what I had expected. This is a simple and sturdy product that will provided a much improved access to my Four Wheel Camper. I like the way that I can leave it attached to the hitch while not fully extended for use. This sure beats the 3 step stool that came with my camper. Safe and sturdy. 109772

Very satisfied with the steps! I have a 4x4 so the bottom step is a little high off the ground, but the top step is in line with the truck bed. So we can step directly into the camper. When it's fitted to the hitch with the last hole, it can be left on while driving. It tended to wiggle a bit, so I put a wedge in the small gap where it fits into the receiver. There was nothing on the internet that I could find that compares to these steps. Happy camper! 16081

On my second camping trip, my feet were wet and I was on tiptoes trying to reach the lightswitch for the back door of my camper. It was at that exact moment that the top stair gave way and I went crashing to the ground with a nasty gash in my back. It was not a pretty sight. I have since had a welder make additional supports and it seems to be fine now. Right out of the box I'd definitely say it's a bit flimsy. Best of luck to those who make this purchase. 420180

Just as pictured - nice sturdy product ....but I was to use this step with my 4 wheel truck camper in a 14 F250, but since I have the camper, the back-up camper camera has been moved down low (just above the license plate) which in turn is right in line with this step - so when I back up the reverse warning system goes off. Needless to say I can't live with it. Good product but can't be used with my set-up. 320702


Comments

Thanks for your feedback, Chris! I have a 2013 Ford F-150 and whenever we use hitch-mounted accessories that interfere with our backup camera/alarm system, we turn off our backup alarm. You can consult your vehicle manual to learn how to turn it off in your truck. Hope this helps!

Steps for Truck Camper They fit the receiver nice and snug and they are sturdy. Keep your weight in the center and they will last forever. I also had some grip tape so I used it to make sure there were no slips. These are painted metal so you could slip if feet are wet or muddy. Both things happen when your camping. I noticed ETrailer.com has the grip tape also so if you don't have any get it from them. 4304

I just wanted to say, better than I thought It would get. Really well made. Dimensions were right and fits perfect. The 3 holes make it convenient for traveling and while stopped to set your distance from the camper door. I have a 2012 Nissan Frontier and the top step slides in just over the bumper. I use that position when traveling. It is high enough to leave on. You will not be disappointed. 72086

Great product. This step has been very helpful. I would have given it 5 stars if it were a little higher. The receiver that I am using it in is fairly low so the first step is short and then the distance from the top step to the bed is a bit tall. If this product was available in different ground heights it would be a 5 star for sure. 265774

Good looking steps. I tried them and they seem to be sturdy. I wish top step was a 1/2" higher so it would slide into the center of the bumper thus moving it as far forward as possible when not in use. No problem just an observation. Super fast shipping was a big plus! 116599

Only took a few days to arrive. These steps work great. I use these steps to get in and out of my truck camper. No more balancing acts or acrobatics to get up. No slack either. I thought there would be some wobbling left and right but there is none...very sturdy. 57481

I was so very disappointed in the steps. It wont go far enough back to fit in the last hole because of the spare tire. And I didn't realize that I would have to remove it all the time because it sticks out to far when not in use. such a disappointment 363025

I received my RHS2 in good shape. Knowing the weight rated is so low at 250lbs. I know I am going to reinforce it to handle heavier weights. This gave me a good building block so I can improve and design it to be heavy duty steps. 176744

Do you have a question about this Hitch Step?


  • Stair Recommendation for a In-Bed Camper with Entry Door 48 Inches Up from the Ground
  • The 2-step # RHS2 is the only multi-step hitch mounted steps that I have seen. You might want to look at steps # TLA7806. You can attach these steps to the threshold and they will reach all the way to the ground when pulled out. They also feature glowing parts on each step so they are more visible at night. I have linked the installation instructions to the right for you. We also have # AS25 and # AS05 that can reach 48 inches.

  • Will Trailer Hitch Mount Hitch Steps RHS2 Clear a Palomino Slide-in Camper in a Truck Bed
  • What you are going to want to do is wait until your husband is busy and then take a measurement on the truck and hitch. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on the truck straight back to the distance required to clear the camper. If that measurement is less than 6-1/2 inches then the hitch stairs, # RHS2, will clear the obstruction. If it will not then you have some options. You can use a hitch extender.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount or Truck Bed Mount Step to Clear Lowered Tailgate
  • You might be interested in the HitchMate TruckStep, # HE4045. The step extends out 23-1/2 inches from the face of the trailer hitch receiver. Depending on the position of the receiver and the length of the tailgate when down, this could work. We also have the nifty tailgate step, # CAB-SG-2R, so you could use the tailgate to your advantage. I have included links to the right to videos on both of these steps for you.

  • I may have a solution for you, however the Bestop TrekStep Side Mounted Truck Step # B7540315 referenced in your question will not work for your 2017 Ford F-250. There is not a custom truck bed step currently available that will fit your truck. I instead recommend looking into a hitch mounted step like the Brophy Stair with 2 Steps # RHS2. This will slide right into a 2 inch hitch receiver to provide you with two steps for easy access to your truck bed. It features 3 hitch pin holes...

  • How to Use a Hitch Step in a 2-1/2 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • I have a solution for you but there are not hitch steps that have a drop and fit a 2-1/2 inch hitch. First you will need a reducer sleeve such as # C45405. Then you could use hitch step # RHS2 which is 2 steps with the first step with a drop below the hitch receiver. None of the other steps really have a drop with the exception of # HE4045 or # HE4037.

The bottom step is 3 inches below the bottom of the shank. This stair has a 250 lb weight capacity. I also recommend the pin and clip, part # PC3. If you are looking for a locking...

  • Recommended Camper Steps For Truck Bed Camper
  • Unfortunately the Brophy 2-Step, part # RHS2 are the only steps that install in a hitch we offer. The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps, part # AS24 may be a better solution for you. These steps are made of aluminum and can be expanded from 31 to 39 inches. They are not designed to be mounted permanently but simply clip into the included mounting bracket and then are folded and stored when you are traveling. .

  • Can I Leave the Tailgate On the Truck and Use the Brophy Hitch Stair # RHS2
  • You do not have to remove the tailgate on your 1997 Ford F-150 to use the Brophy Hitch Stair, # RHS2. If you keep the tailgate down you will not be able to use the top step because it will be covered by the tailgate, but you can still use the lower step. If you are worried about the tailgate hitting the top step when it is down, you will want to measure the distance between your tailgate and the top of your trailer hitch receiver when the tailgate is down. As long as you have more than...

  • Can Hitch Stair Steps for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches be Left in Hitch While Driving 2001 Toyota Tundra
  • Technically, you could leave the hitch stair steps, # RHS2, mounted in the hitch while you drive. But it is going to affect ground clearance since the lower step is several inches below the receiver. I advise also adding an anti-rattle device such as # RM-061.

  • Truck Bed Step for 2013 Silverado That Works with Tailgate Open
  • The bottom step of the Brophy Hitch Stair # RHS2 would still be usable with the tailgate down, but the top step would be blocked by the tailgate, so it might not be the best choice for you. In addition to the Hitch Stair, we offer several other options that might work for you. Bestop offers the Trek Step, part # B75300 which mounts under the vehicle, and will extend or retract with a push of the foot. It's really a slick system, you can see how it installs by clicking the provided...

  • Measurements of Brophy Hitch Stair with 2 Steps RHS2 on Ram 1500 Pickup
  • The way to determine if you will be happy with the fit of Brophy Hitch Stair with 2 Steps # RHS2 on your Ram is to take note of the height of the top step relative to your receiver opening. The top step of this unit will be 5-1/4-inches above the top of the receiver opening on your Ram's hitch. The three hitch pin holes allow for flexibility in how close to the vehicle the step will be positioned. I went to our warehouse to measure these holes' positions relative to the top step. The...

  • Distance Between Slat Openings in the Deck of MaxxTow Aluminum Cargo Carrier with Ramp
  • The spaces between the slats in the deck on MaxxTow cargo carrier # MT70275 are approximately 1 inch wide. That would be fine for a pup the size of your German Shepherd. But if your primary reason for wanting this cargo carrier is to enter/exit the camper in the truck bed then I recommend some hitch steps such as # RHS2. I have linked a video review of this product for you. Hitch mount cargo carriers are not meant to stand or walk on, just to hold a static load. Standing/walking on it...

  • Would the Hitch Stair part # RHS2 Work Well to Aid Getting In and Out of a Truck Bed Camper
  • Yes, since your camper is flush with the back of the truck bed of your 2007 Toyota Tundra the Hitch Stair part # RHS2 that you referenced would be an excellent way to help you get in and out of the camper. That's actually what this product was designed to do. To prevent theft of this product you may also be interested in the hitch lock part # 7683.

  • Fit of Brophy Hitch Stair with 2 Steps RHS2 with Open Tailgate
  • You can measure the space between the underside of your open tailgate and the top of your hitch receiver tube to see if there is enough space for the Brophy Hitch Stair with 2 Steps # RHS2. From the top of the step's 2-inch shank up to the top surface of the upper step the distance is 5-1/4-inches. If the bottom of your open tailgate is more than 5-1/4-inches above the top of the hitch opening then the tailgate will open with the step in place. Please refer to the linked photo. When...

  • Recommended Trailer Step For Camper With Offset Door
  • The trailer hitch mounted steps we offer are for the center of the truck and are not designed with an offset as you described your trailer has, but I may have an option that will work for you. I recommend the Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail and Landing, part # EHS-102-R. This has an overall height of 21 inches and the top landing measures 27 inches wide by 16 inches deep. This also features a handrail and has a weight capacity of 350 lbs. This would require assembling and disassembling...

  • Available Hitch-Mounted Step That is Less Than 15-Inches Wide
  • We do have many styles of hitch-mount step including 2-step models like # RHS2 (which is a bit too wide for you at 17-inches) as well as lighted steps like # BBS-1104L. For a good basic step that is less than 15-inches wide you might consider one of these: WeatherTech BumpStep # WT81BS1 Carr Mega Step # CARR190011 MaxxTow Hitch Extender with Step # MT70069 If you can tell me your vehicle year, make and model I might be able to offer additional custom-fit product options.

  • Do You Measure Straight Up and Down to Choose RV/Camper Steps
  • You can measure straight down from the bottom of the door to the ground to choose stairs. A popular option is scissor steps. I have included a link to the options for you. We have 2 to 6 step models available with different heights.

  • Hitch Step Recommendation with Step Lower than Hitch Tube
  • I believe we have just what you are looking for. Check out the Brophy Hitch Step part # RHS2. This actually has two steps. One lower than the hitch shank and one that sits above it. This would not require any hitch adapters to get a step lower than the hitch tube. For a locking hitch pin we have the part # 7683 which would work well.

  • Top Step Height Above Shank on Brophy Hitch Stair with 2 Steps RHS2
  • I went to our warehouse to measure the Brophy Hitch Stair with 2 Steps # RHS2. From the top of the shank tube to the top of the upper step the distance is 5-1/2-inches, as shown in the linked photo I prepared for you. From the top of the shank to the very bottom of the entire step assembly the distance is 6-1/2-inches.

  • Truck Bed Step for 2008 Ford F150 Usable With Tailgate Open
  • Anytime a hitch extender of any kind is used, the tongue weight capacity of the hitch (the amount of downward force that can safely be applied to the hitch) is cut in half. The further away from the hitch a load is moved, the more leverage is applied to the hitch. If this distance and weight applied becomes large enough, the extender, hitch accessory and the hitch can be damaged. In my opinion, the best step option for when the tailgate is down would be the Bestop TrekStep, part # B75302....

  • Would the Hitch Stair with 2 Steps part # RHS2 Clear the Rear Door of a 2012 Jeep Wrangler
  • You will need to take one measurement to determine if the Hitch Stair with 2 Steps, part # RHS2 will fit on your 2012 Jeep Wrangler and allow you to swing the door open. You will need to measure the distance from the top of the hitch opening to the bottom of the door when it is swung open. If this distance is less than 5-1/4 inches the # RHS2 would clear your door.
