Hitch Stair with 2 Steps for 2" Trailer Hitches - RHS2

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (181 Customer Reviews)

Steps and extender appear they will work well for my Ram 2500 with slide-in camper, having not loaded the camper to date. Unfortunately, the receiver on heavy duty Rams are 2 and 1/2 inches, so I needed to add a 2 inch reducer which doesn't fit as tightly, making the set up less rigid. But, this will be better than the bulky set of steps I used to carry and then hope for level ground on which to set them.

Weve now welded component pieces together including 2 and 12 inch hitch adapter which the entire unit much more solid.

Great product! I used this with an extension and 3 hitch stabilizers. Extend the steps perfectly to match my slide in camper and provides a solid step. I would definitely recommend adding traction adhesive and grit to the steps, they are extremely slippery in wet conditions.

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.

Great, still solid and no flex

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.

I had my neighborhood boat shop drill additional holes so it could slide farther into the receiver hitch extension when not needed. Providing multiple hole options for installations would make it more flexible for more uses.

by:

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!

I like it! I use my '55 Grumman (Doughboy) for camping and was looking for an alternative to carrying around a stool/step to put on the ground. I came across this Hitch Stair and I already had a 2" receiver on Doughboy, so figured I'd give it a try. I was going to make one myself, but didn't want to take the time. It does have a little "wobble" in it, but that could also be my receiver. I just carry a couple of wooden shims with me to make it steady and it works just fine. I recommend it!



- RHS2
by:

I bought this to access my truck camper on a 2019 Toyota Tundra. It is sturdy and functional. Just know that your under-mounted spare tire may interfere with your ability to push the hitch stair to its most tucked away position (3rd hold nearest the steps). Otherwise, it has been great. I do worry sometimes that other drivers may not see the protruding steps and get to close to my rear. Adding reflective tape would be advisable.

Using as steps to make getting in and out of the boat safer. Not as nice as trick steps for this use but much cheaper and serves the purpose

My truck bed camper is so easy to access with hitch stair and extender. Having them has finished off my project perfectly. Thanks

Absolutely amazing customer service..orginal package was damaged and missing a part..i called the number on the website and without any hesitation they sent out a replacement. Highly recommend this company!



- RHS2
by:

Service was great and step was delivered quickly. However, I couldn't give 5 stars because the bottom step does not extend out far enough beyond my F150 tailgate when it is down. I knew the top step would be unusable, but I read what one of the etrailer reps wrote, that the bottom step would extend beyond the tailgate. One of the main reasons for purchasing the step was so I could use it to get in and out of my truck tent without a step stool. Now, I need to purchase an extension tube.



- RHS2
by:

Step wobbles when you step at it's left and right sides. I tried shimming left right and bottom of the hitch which helped. I had though that it needs an angled split in the part that goes into the hitch with a draw bolt that pulls the 2 split halves towards each other allowing the size to grow and tighten into the hitch receiver. I thought about drilling a hole into receiver and welding a 5/8" nut onto side of receiver to tighten a bolt into the tongue of the step. I like the split tapered idea better as I would not be compromising the hitch integrity. I switched back to folding stair and do not use the step.



- RHS2
by:

overall design is a good idea Had to take the stairs down to a metal fabricator to put some gussets in to make it more Stable Work great as long as you only took a step in the middle of the stairs

Just received our stairs. Perfect fit, perfect height. Quality construction and great value. Tammy in customer service was awesome!

Great stairs for our camper.

by:

Step arrived in a cardboard box that was almost completely destroyed. There was no extra padding around all the sharp corners and therefore the sharp corners chewed right through the box. A little black spray paint will hide the scratches though so I suppose it is all here, still just a little bubble wrap would have solved this issue. The step is heavy, the step is big, the step is well constructed and when used as a step works well. When not used as a step though what do you do with it? Leaving it inserted isn't an option, loss of ground clearance is an issue so removing the step and placing it in the camper is the answer, I suppose. Remember the step is large and heavy and if it get wet and muddy it will be in your camper while moving to your next camping area. Because of this the step won't work for me very well, my fault though for not thinking it through.



- RHS2
by:

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.


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!

Works good, but I would add an Anti Rattle stabilizer to take the wobble out when stepping on it.



- RHS2
by:

I love my step. I live in my truck full time and getting in and out is much easier and safer. I have to back out but I know where the step is and can find it safely.

It is still great for me

Steps work great, look great and priced right. Love them. I will be using them with my truck camper. They are the perfect height.



- RHS2
by:

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.



- RHS2
by:

Previously, I used a step ladder to get up to the bed of the truck. I never felt the ladder was stable enough. Now that I am using this hitch step ladder, I can feel the strength of the metal and the stability in my steps which gives me a safe feeling.



- RHS2
by:

I think it will work on my truck. I have to put it in last hole when the gate is still on the truck. I think after I get a camper on the back these stairs will work very well. Only one problem, the bottom step is pretty high for me. I will have p. to get another little step to comfortably get to the bottom step. Also, the top step is very near the bumper but with some adjustment I think it will work out fine. thank you



- RHS2
by:

This product showed up very quickly at my door! It is very well made and the adjustable attachment is critical for a truck camper. I'm very pleased with the durability and it could also be used for getting in and out of the truck even if it wasn't being used for a camper. etrailer is one of my favorite sites for excellent service.

  • Recommended Steps for Front of Boat Trailer
    It sounds like you are trying to add some steps to the tongue of your boat trailer for help getting in the boat. If that is the case then only bolt-on option we'd have is the HitchMate Boat Trailer Step part # HE4036 which bolts onto the frame. The photo attached of the Hitch Stair with 2 Steps part # RHS2 is a custom installation in which the customer welded the shank to the frame but it is not designed for this purpose.

  • 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, 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.

  • 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....
