Today we're going to review part number EHS-103-R. This is the Stromberg Carlson Econo-Porch Trailer Step with the handrail and the landing. This is the triple step design. This part model trailer step will provide the stability of a stationary step with an interchangeable handrail that you can use on either side, right or left side.This does come fully assembled and to put it together it's very simply you just unfold it and attach these braces. Basically there's two braces on each step so there's six here and then two back here-you just unbolt these and the braces will rotate out of the way. The whole unit will collapse, you'll remove the handrail and it's ready to go.
It comes shipped to you just like that-you'll put it up, raise it into position, attach the braces, attach the handrail and it's ready to go; very simple way to put it together.The size on this landing-the width is going to be 27 inches, the depth is 16 inches. Now on the steps themselves they're 27 inches, the depth on them is nine inches. Now the rise or drop is going to be seven inches. The seven inches give you a nice comfortable rise or drop for the entire family-makes it very easy to walk up and down.This part is made in the USA. Now the overall height where the landing is-is going to be 28 inches.
Weight capacity on this part is 350 pounds. It does come with a one year limited warranty and last thing I want to give you is some dimensions on these handrails and again as I mentioned they can be bolted-a bolt there and a bolt there on this side or on that side whichever way you prefer.The height in the front is about 41 inches; the height on the rear extends up to about 61 inches. The depth on the whole handrail overall is going to be right at about 34 inches. That should do it for the review on part number EHS-103-R the Stromberg Carlson Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail and Landing, the Triple Step Design.
Average Customer Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (125 Customer Reviews)This park-model trailer step provides the stability of a stationary step with an interchangeable handrail for use on either side. The triple-step Econo Porch comes fully assembled: To use, simply unfold and attach braces.

This step unit is just what we needed for our entrance to our park model/destination trailer. It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy. The landing at the top is a great feature. It is now so much easier to go in and out - for the old lady and for our elderly dog. We looked at fiberglass, but the heavy, chunky designs were ugly. This open unit does not detract from the trailer. The price was also reasonable. Most pre-fab RV steps are a total rip-off price-wise. I highly recommend this product. 95115

I am going to rate this item excellent. These steps are very sturdy. Not light however at 70 pounds but they do fold up for transporting. We bought the steps to make it easier for our 15 year old Border Collie to get in and out of the trailer. The steps and landing are covered with traction material and prevents her from slipping on the steps. The steps are well made and easy to assemble. I would buy these again; however......... My only complaint is the poor packaging provided by the manufacturer. It does not protect the contents during shipping. This is no fault of etrailer or UPS. The staples that hold the two sides of the box together really beat up the paint job in numerous spots and the bolts were strewn all over the inside of the box, likely adding to the paint damage. I have posted a message on Stromberg Carlson's website as they should be providing better protection in the packaging for their products especially heavy ones such as this. I will keep the steps as I really like them, but I was disappointed in seeing the damaged paint, even if it is only cosmetic. I have not heard back from the manufacturer. Etrailer had the steps in stock and the free UPS shipping was a bonus. I had them within three business days. I have bought from etrailer in the past and will do so in the future. 106585

Many prior reviews mentioned the poor packing of these steps and the parts that were missing as a result of the packing damage. Thanks to Kim and the added packing the steps arrived with no damage and all the parts were in the package and it arrived promptly. Kim was very knowledgeable, prompt, concerned and showed that she wanted the business. Being that we are in a very large and active campground I am sure many here will stop ro see the steps. I will definately recommend etrailer and Kim. I bought these steps as both me and my wife are in our 80s and find the steps on our Park Model trailer getting hard to handle. Now we can continue camping in comfort and with safety going up and down the stairs. Assembly was easy. The hadrest part was to open the steps from a flat position but once opened all went smoothly and quickly. 175522
These are wonderful steps! Very sturdy, extremely easy to assemble and very secure. I use them to access my pool deck and they are PERFECT, strong, slip proof (even in wet, bare feet) and step width and spacing is perfect for older fat person such as myself! They shipped quickly and box was slightly banged up, I would like to suggest that shippers use two fiberglass bonded tapes one wrapped horizontally and the other wrapper vertically to make handling during shipping slightly easier (gives someone something to grip when moving box). Thanks so much for such a great product! 91220
So easy to setup, took just a few minutes. We have our steps sideways, so we will be adding yellow chain link at the top of the platform so no one takes a left turn off the steps. I understand all previous shipping comments. Shipping is difficult because the steps are heavy and the box is large and difficult to move around. Ours came with a few scrapes on the edge but nothing that can't be touched up. 229065

We purchased the folding stairs over a year ago to use with our destination RV that we have permanently parked in NW Montana. As we did not want to continue to use the attached RV fold-out steps, we actually folded up the RV steps and attached these in their place. These were easy to assemble, take down, & store, so would work well for traveling, too. Having the four steps makes it easy to go up and down with your arms full. The steps are very sturdy, the handrail is useful, and they look very nice on our RV. We are in our second winter (some temperatures have hit 20 below zero with 2 feet of snow) and do not see any wear/tear, e.g., rust, etc. The skid-proof strips work well to give sure footing in the rain. We are able to use a non-salt snow melt on them to keep them from being slick when it freezes or after we've shoveled snow off without seeing any damage to them. One of our family members is over 300# and the steps support them very well. Our little mixed-breed Chihuahua/Terrier dog loves them. He has plenty of room to lie out on the top step to sun himself in nice weather & patrol his yard. (We put a pad down so he isn't lying on the skid-proof strip which is a little rough.) Thank you for such a quality product! 346341

We spent 3 weeks in Desert hot springs Ca. and loved our steps. My husband has a bad knee and it was easier for him to get in and out and the dogs did so much better than using the regular trailer steps. It folded up enough (4 step model) to barely squeak unter the storage bin. The three step would have been a snap to store. It was packaged well, and my only complant was that there were no nuts and bolts etc for assembly and we had to go to the hardware store before being able to use it. Will get pics later 121399

This has to be the safest way to enter and exit your trailer, very easy set up ( 10 minutes) the only improvement would be some kind of leveling feet just so it could be dialed in . 150658

In the time it takes to tighten 8 nuts & bolts, the steps were ready to use. I did add 2 lock washers to the bolts of the handrail to reduce the chance they might loosen. Very strong! Heavy duty! 343140
we had some problems getting it folded out but finally succeeded, hopefully when we get it to the campsite we will not have the same problem. as others have said the packaging was horrible and the FedEx driver pointed out the damages on the box. luckily the steps do not look damaged because of that, however the paint does look scuffed and scratched. will watch for rust in these areas. through no fault of the company we are somewaht concerned that we ordered to high of steps but again will wait until we are set up at a campsite to judge, keeping our fingers crossed. we are excited about having these steps to get in and out of the camper as we are both getting a little older and not as sure footed as we used to be. 185730

Great quality for the price. easy to set and very sturdy. If it were about three inch's wider it would be excellent. so it was as wide as the door on my 5th wheel. But it is a good product. 234091
I called the company to inquire about the steps, the young man James that answered my call was more than helpful, I explained that I was a senior citizen and what I was looking for. Within minutes he had me all fixed up with what he figured I needed. What service, your company should be so proud to have such a good helpful person working for you. The nicest part of all this is the efficiency and speed of this sale. It arrived on my doorstep two days later. EXACTLY what I had been looking for. THANK YOU JAMES you are a sweetheart. I highly recommend this step it is fabulous.!!!!!!!!!! Your company deserves 10 stars!!!!!!and James at least 20!!! ........ 309973
Pros: Easily assembled although some bolt holes were difficult to line up and bolt had to be screwed into holes. I assembled it by myself in less than 45 minutes with help from wife to unfold the stairs. The stairs look as pictured. Cons: No way to level the stairs on uneven concrete and keep them from being slightly unstable. Lock washers could be included but its to soon to tell if they are needed. Rivets, that were installed at the factory, make the unit hard to unfold as they are very tight. 139157
Great design, very easy to assemble. Product was exactly as it was advertised. Negative is that bolts and nuts arived loose, one nut missing,need to put them in a plastic bag that will not tear . Box was torn mainly because one corner is empty and it gets crushed in shipping. The hand rail holes were only drilled on one side of the pipe, so needed to drill holes. In the end a good product...just needs a little more attention in getting it to the customer. 161425
The steps arrived ok. But the box was destroyed. Fasteners scattered around the UPS truck. A trip to Home Depot for more nuts and screws fixed that problem. It required a crow bar and a 2x4 to convince the assembly to unfold. But now all is well. the steps are too short for our 5th wheel. 66710

We've now made two orders, each of two sets of steps through etrailer, and they've always shipped/arrive quickly and as described. The steps themselves come in a big cardboard box that looks like it could be for a flat screen TV. Heavy box, of course, so your local UPS guy might honk at you to come out and help him, as mine does. Assembly is quick and minor, the steps practically unfold into shape straight out of the box. 303753

I ordered the 28 inch steps for my camper as my inlaws are now 84 and 88 years old and have a hard time negotiating the fold down steps that are attached to the camper. We found them to be very sturdy and easy for older or handicapped people to use. The 7 inch rise and top platform or the a perfect combination for getting up and down. I would highly recommend this product for anyone that needs a better step. 181984
by: Bill F.01/02/2014
Box was ripped and torn. One bolt loose in box - no nuts so a rating of " good" is based on the "looks" of the stairs as they lie unassembled in my garage. They look "good". Now I have to find a hardware store and spend more time and money to buy the bolts and nuts that should have come with the stairs. What a pain. You need to pay more attention to your reviews and to detail. Can't say I wasn't forewarned. 111756

Very pleased with the Econo Porch Trailer Step w/handrail. It fit perfectly at the door into the travel trailer. It was very easy to set up. The box looked like it had come open as there was a lot of tape on one side and there were no bolt/nuts for the step braces. Assume the bolt/nuts were lost when box came apart. Definitely recommend this project. Thank you. 129772
Product is quite sturdy. I use it as a second stair case at my school for stage performances and it's gotten a lot of use over the past year. However, most use comes from the weight of children. We have tile flooring so the stair case slides a bit, but I use a carpet mat to keep that from being a problem. Collapsing requires some disassembly but not too difficult. 329553
by: Susie T.06/24/2013
It's just what we wanted. It is perfect for our RV, and our son assembled it easily. Glad for the skid proof on the steps, etc. I have only one suggestion--package the nuts and bolts. Some came out when we moved the box, and some were missing. The shipment arrived in good time, and we are very pleased with our service from etrailer.com. 85879
by: Tanya T.09/26/2015
I have to thank Etrailer for making the process of buying stairs really easy! We looked for a long time online before we came across these. For such an inexpensive price, they work great, are very solid, and look good! Our son (who barely helps out) put these together in about 10 minutes. That's saying a lot coming from him! 227774
by: Julie B05/19/2015
We love the steps. They provide much sturdier, safer access to our camper. We also have 3 dogs and it's much easier for them to get in and out of the camper too. I was worried about the railing being sturdy, but it's fantastic too. I am so happy we found these steps. They are a bit expensive, but SO worth it. 194281
by: Mary L.03/20/2017
We are using our stairs on a 5th wheel that is permanently parked. We love our new stairs with a platform area at the top, wide non-slip steps and a handrail. They are so much safer than the standard small pull-out steps that come standard on mobile trailers & 5th wheels. Thank you for such a GREAT product! 356253
by: Sam A07/26/2016
We actually have two sets of these stairs. The first we bought for our 1974 Starcraft popup and the second pair for out 2015 Keystone self contained. Our family really enjoys them. It makes getting in and out so much easier. My brother also bought a set for his self contained after seeing our first set. 276530
These steps are great and do a wonderful job but are heavy to carry and move around, You must put something under the sides to keep them from moving, Even as heavy as they are they will move after a given time. But over all they are a great product. Thank You Stromberg Carlson 346193
by: D. Jenkins02/02/2017
The stairs were delivered on time and the box was here when I got home from work. I put it together in the dark in about 15 minutes so I was very satisfied. The product description was accurate and I will be using this site again when I need more items for my RV. Thank you. 338092
We have a fifth wheel so the stairs are too short. My husband raised them with a 6x6 and they work much better. The safety of a platform entering and exiting has made all the difference. The stairs had several deep paint scratches but the hard ware was all there. 248733
by: bill w.04/10/2016
Purchased so my father(90) would be able to enter and exit his 5th wheel camper. Worked great for him to get in and out.Unfortunately he was unable to take it on any trips but I have used it 3 times makes entering and exiting much easier and it very stable 243669
We've been using our stairs to get in and out of our box trucks on industrial job sites for the past year and they've been holding up very well. A surprise benefit is that they also help to cut down on the amount of dirt tracked into the trucks. 311542
by: Nancy C02/18/2015
Totally happy with this purchase. Strong and stable. Makes it so easy to enter and exit our trailer! Would recommend for anyone to buy. It is a little too heavy to move around often. Must take out 10 bolts in order to fold steps and it is 70 #!! 175232
by: Gary C02/16/2017
Very sturdy and fit perfectly against our Montana 5th wheel. So glad we purchased it. The shipping box was terrible and mostly destroyed, but stairs were fine. Assembly was a no brainer, had in place in 15 minutes. My wife and dog love it. 342465
by: Terry H.11/16/2016
Product was just what I wanted, and as advertised. Went together in about ten minutes. Packaging was horrible, very hard to handle by yourself. Not enough cardboard packing to secure the steps inside the box. 317172
I like the steps. They were easy to unfold. But as others have experienced, the cardboard box in which they were packed was damaged All Parts were present. The loose items were in a seated plastic bag. 315858
by: Joseph P11/08/2014
Great product. My wife had a knee replacement & had difficulty going on & out of the steep steps of the rig. This steps are lower & much better with yellow markings. Very happy with this product. 159991
by: Tom B09/17/2013
Product arrived today and the UPS guy said we better look at it since the package box was really in bad condition. Much to my surprise the steps were unharmed. Very happy with the product. 100379
by: Delma K.03/26/2016
We really like our steps. They make it easier for us old folk to get in and out of our travel trailer, also, helps our quests to get in and out. Folds up so their easy to take with us. 241860
by: Janey A09/18/2016
Easy to open/set up. A little heavy for one person to carry but these are heavy duty in strength. Managed to fit them in the back seat of my car for transport. 296041
Easy to put together. Steps make it easy for elderly mother-in-law to get into trailer. Great handrail for all. Would not be without it. 248541

Great product for my Mom who has arthritis and my brother who is handicap and neither can do camper steps easily. Fast shipping! 196764
by: Reed h09/11/2013
The packaging sucks. Box was in shreds nuts and bolts was gone. Had to go to store and buy them. Stairs look good. 99416
by: Howie Manke07/29/2016
The quality of these steps is very good & very sturdy--they are quite heavy for us old folks though!!!!! 277584

The stairs are an excellent buy. They provide a stable and easy entrance into the trailer. 155645
