Will Brophy Camper Scissor Steps Work for You?

Scissor steps are typically installed on truck campers, but can be attached to your truck's tailgate using a special mounting bracket (TSSB - sold separately). After the initial installation, they're easy to attach when needed and detach for compact storage. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.

Brophy Mounting Bracket

The Brophy scissor steps have a single mounting bracket that attaches to either the camper wall or the truck bumper beneath the doorway. To decide which size you'll need, locate the space available for the mounting bracket on your application that lines up with the doorframe, and measure the width and height. You will need a mounting space at least 18-1/4" wide and 1" tall.

If it turns out you have more space beneath your doorway, there are larger step assemblies available with 24" wide brackets. A full list of the available steps is below.

Once you have an approximation of where the mounting bracket will go and what size mounting bracket you need, the spot you chose will be used as the "mounting point" to determine how many steps you will need.

How Many Steps Do You Need?

Brophy Entry Height

To decide on how many steps you'll need, measure from the "mounting point" to the ground. This is called the entry height. The entry height should roughly match the height of the steps when they're fully extended, and it will also tell you how many steps you need.

The chart below displays entry height measurement ranges in the first column. If you determined you need an 18-1/4" mounting bracket, the step part numbers with that width are in the second column. If you determined you need a 24" mounting bracket width, the step part numbers with that width are in the third column. Choose the bracket size that is closest to your measurements without going over.

This page's step assembly is in bold text.

31" - 40"AS04, SS04AS24
40" - 48"AS05AS25

How Do You Install the Steps?

To install the steps:

  1. Find the mounting spot for the bracket on your vehicle
  2. Unfold the steps and attach to the mounting bracket "V" clamps
  3. Place step assembly against camper or bumper

    -Make sure assembly is centered beneath the doorway

  4. Mark the mounting holes on the camper and drill
  5. Remove steps from bracket and set aside
  6. Attach the mounting bracket to the camper

    -Secure in place with included lag screws

  7. Hook stairs into mounting bracket "V" clamps and extend

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (787 Customer Reviews)

6-1/4" Deep x 17" wide aluminum camper steps expand from 31" to 39" tall and fold up for storage. Steps self-adjust for stability on any terrain. Non-slip tread ensures solid footing. Mounting bracket and hardware included.


I added rubber anti slip pads
on each step.


What I like:
1) It's compact for easy
storage when not needed.
2) It's well built and firmly attaches to my tailgate.
3) It works great for steps to our truck camping tent, see attached photos.
What I don't like:
1) The 6" gap between the top step and the tailgate. I've filled it in with a block of wood but eventually like to replace that with a bent aluminum plate.


Great product! Installed easily. Took me less than 30 minutes! Easy to put on and take off and folds up to put away. Couldn’t have asked for a better steps!


We ordered the Brophy camper Sissor steps for our truck camper. We could have gone the inexpensive "household step ladder" route but we wanted something sturdy and secure. We are so glad we got this outstanding, quality product. They are secure, safe, look nice and are totally worth it. No rickety steps for us!


Good fit strong and sturdy,maybe consider a wider top step to close up the gap and create a safer first step down.


Very nice sturdy light weight steps. Upgraded from the 3 to 4 step version.


Everything is good except the pin for the step lock tab was laying in the bottom of the box and will not stay installed where it goes,poor design.


Absolutely the best customer service and information available. The product is the best quality and reasonable price. I paid twice as much my last ladder purchase. Needless to say we will be frequenting this business.


Great steps. Sturdy and getting in and out of our slide in Four Wheel Camper is so much easier and safer.


This set of four steps is very sturdy. My old set lasted about five years when an outside support broke where a rivet was. I removed that step and the rest lasted 18 years. My camper is taller due to a new taller pickup, so I needed this set of four steps, which should last even longer.

The four-step scissors set is excellent. However, the rivets are so tight my wife cant unfold nor close the steps. Otherwise Im very pleased with the set.


Very fast delivery and was as advertised I have waited awhile to make this investment and I can after install say nice can’t wait to use them out in the outdoors


I had a Brophy 4-step, steel scissor step for my last truck camper, and it worked great. I thought I would spend a little extra for the much lighter aluminum version for my new camper. I already like it a lot. It is solid and of superior workmanship. I would definitely recommend them.


Light weight, perfect height, used with the TSSB tailgate bracket. Works great for my application.


Ordered stairs on Monday and had them Wednesday morning (3 day shipping).
Stair installation was easy and took an hour (including gathering and putting away tools). I can't speak to using them long term but they seem really solid and are easy to operate. This is definitely a great upgrade for our truck camper.



1 year later and the steps are working great theyre solid. Theyre easy to unfold, easy to get on and off bracket and store easily. I couldnt imagine not having them.


The Brophy Aluminum Four Step Scissors steps appear to be an excellent product and installed easily. I like the mounting bracket - the bracket provides for easy attachment and removal as well as slight sliding of the steps to either side. The steps provide secure footing even when wet. And they are relatively light weight and compact when retracted and detached prior to movement. The watch outs are:

1. The lower, forward edge of each step could cause cuts.
2. The metal strap used to secure the steps in the collapsed/storage position also posed a potential cut issue when installed on my Lance 1050s. The uppermost step rests on my Lance's bumper. The strap must be rotated up parallel to the uppermost step. The edge of the strap then protrudes slightly above the back edge of the uppermost step. We removed the strap and I will bevel the lower forward edge of the steps.

All that said, a good product that I highly recommend. I wish I had bought them two years ago when we got the camper. Our camper spends most of its time mounted on the truck, and the climb up is a nuisance. These steps make entry and exit a snap.

Of course etrailer's service is outstanding. I received my order quickly - the third business day after placing my order. I have ordered three large items from etTrailer and have received all three expeditiously and without damage/incident. These guys are pro's.



Excellent quality, light weight. Perfect for pop-up truck campers.


Stable and very well built



Great, no issues at all.

@Bob We're glad to hear you're happy with your # AS04 Scissor Steps!


We are getting older and found it hard to climb into our camper using a folding stool. These steps are lightweight and simple to use. Getting in and out of the camper is no longer a challenge. The mounting instructions were easy to follow. Although I did add a strip of butyl tape under the bracket to seal the holes from moister.


Happy with the step but the bracket it hangs on rusted immediately


We love it
Makes it easier to get in
and out of our pop up camper




Perfect for our needs, very easy to set up and solid to climb, fits perfect under our camper door.


Phone help was fantastic, used them several times before, great service every time.


Great product would wish they were wider


These scissor steps are light and very sturdy, exactly what we were looking for. They also fold up quite easily into a compact unit. We are actually going to use these to get in and out of the back of our F150, and we didn't want a steep ladder type of set up. It's not a camper and so will not be permanently installing the bracket, so we may attach the bracket to a 2x4 just to make sure there is no sliding of the unit while in use. It's a great product!

    You may be able to use the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go steps, though it is going to depend on the width of the area you are looking to mount them.

  • Scissor Step Options for Truck Bed Camper with Door Measuring 38-1/2 Inches Above Ground
    Going with a 5 step or a 4 step scissor step for your slide-in truck bed camper will depend on where you want to mount the step, the manufacturer of the step, and also personal preference. If you like the TorkLift GlowSteps better, I spoke with my contact at TorkLift and he recommended a 5-step scissor step # TLA7805 for your camper's door height. He said if it was mounted lower, the 4-step # TLA7804 would work fine, but he would go up to the 5-step scissor step. I personally also think...

    Given that the mount of the Torklift # TLA7844 is 2-1/2 inches wider than the available spot on the landing, these particular steps wouldn't be the best choice. CR Brophy makes a narrower 4 step unit, part # AS04 that would be a better choice. This set measures 17 inches wide and would fit your fox landing much better.

    The TorkLift SafeStep Vinyl Barriers are 18-1/2" long and 10-1/2" tall, so they're going to be just a tad too big for the Brophy Scissor Steps # AS04 which are 17" wide.

  • Truck Bed Camper Step Recommendations for Camper in a 2000 Dodge Ram 2500
    Brophy steps # AS04 are a great option because they have an extended range of 31 to 39 inches. With your height at 35 inches it is right in the middle of that range and that is a good place to be. These steps have a 250 pound capacity. For a little higher capacity but still in a 4-step model with the same 31 to 39 inch range I recommend # AS24. They are rated for 300 pounds.

  • Can I Use A Piece On Angle Iron To Attach The Brophy Scissor Step AS04 To The Sub Floor Of My Camper
    Hey Robert, that is an interesting question. While the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS04 are generally not installed in this way, I see no reason why you could not use angle iron to attach the bracket to the sub floor. The sub floor should be plenty strong to support the weight of the step. As long as you have your angle iron attached securely to the sub floor I do not see any issues with doing it this way.
