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 24" wide and 1" tall.


If it turns out you have less space beneath your doorway, there are smaller step assemblies available with 18-1/4" 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.

24" - 30"AS03, SS03AS23
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

This is the exact thing I needed to make it easier to get into and out of my camper. I couldn't use the mounting bracket, but I rest it on the OEM step with a piece of wood as a spacer.



by:

I could not find a product specifically made for my application, but these steps were a very close fit. I little cutting here some drilling there and what do you know, steps 'custom made' for a 1999 Roadtrek 190P. Now anyone with mobility issues can enter the camper easily. You cannot see it in the picture, but there are blocks under the top step that are pinned to the campers step, it is a very solid connection and will not pull out accidentally. Also not visible there are commercial handicapped grab bars on both doors as well as on the left hand 'wall' of the bathroom. With the addition of these steps the camper is now easily accessible for my wife.

After 1 year everything is still working as intended.



by:

Great product and easy to mount. The larger size step is great for my pyrenees dogs to enter and exit my four wheel pop up hawk camper. Wasn’t sure the 3 step was going to be tall enough, but seems to be working so far. Was trying to avoid the 4 step version because of extra size and weight. The package only comes with 4 bolts and the mounting bracket has five holes so i picked up 1 more 1/4”x1 1/2”x 14 sheet metal screw for extra security. Get one of these , so much nicer than a hitch mount step or fold up step.

All good and zero rust



by:

I bought these steps because my wife had trouble getting into our 4wd pop up camper. The door is at the rear of the camper, mounted on a Ford F-150. I myself did not want the steps because I thought they would add weight, bulk while traveling, and hassle.

I was unable to use the mounting bracket supplied. If I were to mount the bracket to the back of the camper, it would be too high, and also leave a gap between the camper and the top step. I solved the problem by mounting a flat aluminum step across the bumper, and then on top of that bolting on two plywood boards with a gap just big enough to take the top aluminum bar of the steps. The steps fit onto this perfectly.

In use, I now like these steps a lot. They are VERY solid and secure - much more than any other option, such as the plastic folding stepstool I used before. Since the steps are securely attached to the truck, and also resting securely on the ground, it makes for a VERY stable and secure step.

When traveling it is very easy to fold them up and put them into the back of the camper. They are the first thing unpacked, and the last thing packed. Yet it does add weight and takes up room, but in my opinion it is well worth it.



by:

I like these steps. I modified them slightly for my purposes. I removed the lower bar with a sawzall to shorten the steps slightly. Still seems very steady without the bar. This made the steps a perfect height for my custom trailer. They close up nicely and I can keep them attached even while driving since they fit under the door. I made some safety straps to make sure they would not unzip (probably overkill); there is already a metal clip in the back which does already hold the steps.



by:

I have been using this trailer step for over a year. It is fabulous. I decided on this model because the stairs are deeper making it easier and safer for myself, family members as well as my old dog to get in and out of the camper. I am able to use my single folding step during travel, placing the scissor step on without conflict. I highly recommend the step to anyone who has a camper.



by:

I appreciated the good technical information on this product.I was in a hurry to replace the factory installed steps on my older wood framed camper so we could put it to use this year.We stopped using the old steps some time ago but had no practical replacement for them. My wife ,who began experiencing knee problems, gave me an ultimatum to either fix the stairs or go buy a new trailer or our camping days would be over.This style worked very well. I had a local fabricator weld the top support bracket to the existing step housing for the old stairs as can be seen in the photos. The top support design puts very little stress on the camper's wood frame that the old steps are anchored to. Looks good and works well.Thanks folks



by:

Easy to install and have been using regularly for about one year. e-trailer was easy to work with and we are very glad we purchased. Had to replace the pins at the bottom step with a nut/ bolt to prevent steps from opening too far. The original pins kept falling out until they were finally lost.



by:

Very well made product. Going in and out of the camper is much more secure, my old ladder was OK when I was younger but was wobbly. I had to make a 2" x 2" angle aluminum mount to lower the steps to clear the door opening.



by:

I would give these steps 10 Stars if I could. They have really saved my knees over my previous step system. I also really like the wider and deeper steps. When I was younger I had the smaller brophy steps. But my older knees really like the bigger steps now, and for me the extra cost was really worth it.



by:

steps worked great for the 400 square feet not-so-tiny portable house being built. light but very sturdy and easy to install. after the deck boards are installed the gap at the top will be covered. speedy delivery at a fair price. I highly recommend them. etrailer is definitely one of my go to internet sites. reasonable prices, fast delivery and good selections, with good customer support. thanks etrailer !!!



by:

Purchased these to use on our Jumping Jack Blackout Trailer. Didn't want to drill directly into the trailer, so my Husband devised a creative way to use it. Will be using it camping this weekend for the first time. So far love the extra room of the 24". They feel sturdy & it feels natural (It's nice to not have to think about how or where you are placing your feet) walking on them- like real stairs...



by:

This product is great, easy install, very stable. I added the top step to make it my own ( added step is removed by twisting 2 tabs). Highly recommend



by:

Easy to attach. When not in use the fold up nicely and for me store just in side door. In my case the built-in step that came with camper are still attached. There are times when the need for one or the other is handy. Depending on the ground slope.



by:

Purchased these because my wife had an issue with her knee and couldn’t climb into my truck camper. These were Excellent use of my money and saved my camping season in 2018.



by:

These steps worked perfectly with my camper. So easy to get up and down and super easy to fold up and set inside the door for travel. I'm so glad I found your product. It saved me from a possible fall!



by:

I have a non-standard use, I've attached these to my shed with a floor 30 inches above ground. I love how easy the stairs are to put on & take off. I stow them in the shed and pull them out when needed for access. The width and sturdiness of these steps are excellent.

After a year of use, the folding stairs have been excellent. Ive kept them out through all sorts of weather and they still will come off easily, fold up and stow when needed.



by:

I bought this for stairs to my tailgate and bought the special bar for hookup to the tailgate. The aluminum will bend on the top and the bottom if you are on uneven ground. Steps are sturdy but the top connection worries me.

Gunny B.

I really dont feel safe going up and down these steps. The aluminum strip at the top that attaches to the bracket is not very strong and bends. Theyou should have some bracing from the middle to the ground to give it some extra strength. Needs to be beefed up more.



by:

Came within 2 days. Did not expect the solid nature of the top step. Seen others without the top step being like the rest of them. Will use on slide in camper. Width is great. Have not had chance to attach yet.

These are great lightweight and portable steps. Sets up and takes down in about 5 seconds to provide access to a high man door in a box truck.



by:

stairs are sturdy, light, and easy to use at a good price.



by:

Love it!!! One of the best choices we made for our tiny house!



by:

We were excited to find wide 3-step scissor steps to use on our truck camper. The width would allow us to put a dog ramp along one side and still have room for our feet. Unfortunately, the steps are just too tall so we had to return them. Our camper has a side door entry and the bracket is only 22" from the ground. We couldn't open the steps far enough to get the steps level or to be able to close the door. They seemed to be really well made and a quality product!

  • Fitment of 5-step Brophy Camper Scissor Steps for 39 Entry Height
    For your 39" entry height, the 5-step Brophy Camper Scissor Steps, # AS25 will work just fine. I prefer this to the 4-step for your entry height; I think you will find these steps to be a great addition to your camper and they will not be setting at an awkward angle. If you want to a handrail, I recommend the Aluminum Hand Rail for 5 Step Scissor Stair, # AHR5.

  • Does Brophy Scissor Step Mount Permanently to Rear of Camper
    The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS24 that you referenced is designed to get removed when travelling. So the bracket would install on the camper under the door permanently and then you'd mount the steps to them when you are parked as needed. To determine if you need this 4 step or the 3 step comes down to the height of your door from ground. The 4 step is good for if the entry height is between 31 and 39 inches whereas the 3 step # AS23 is for 24 to 30 inch entry heights.

  • Do Fold-Out Steps Need to be Removed When Mounting Brophy Scissor Steps
    That is a good question, and you can leave your current fold-out steps up and in the folded position when installing the mounting bracket of the Brophy Scissor Steps. The reason is, the bracket will be installed just underneath the door so as long as when your steps are folded up there is no interference in that area the Brophy steps will be a great option. I added a photo for you a customer sent in which shows the bracket and steps installed so you can get an idea of how they mount. The...

    Great question! The All Terrain Landing Gear for RV Scissor Steps, # TLA8000, work with most factory scissor steps. Many steps like Brophy Scissor Steps # AS23 use rivets. You are correct - the rivets will need to be drilled out using a 1/4" drill bit. Once this is completed, you will replace the lower hoop of the steps using the hardware that is provided.

The distance from the mounting strip on the step assembly to the back of the top step is 3-1/4 inches. The distance from the inside of the mounting strip that is installed on the Trailer or RV to the back of the top step is right at 4 inches.

  • Recommended Scissor Steps for Varying Distance From Door to Ground
    I took a look at each of the scissor steps we carry and there are not any available that have the range of 18" to 26" you are looking for. You are not going to want to use the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS23, which have a range of 24" to 30" when your door is 18" off the ground so your best option would be to use both the # AS23 steps as well as the Brophy # AS02 which have a height range of 18" to 23". I've added a link to video reviews of both steps for you to take a look at.

  • Why are Brophy Aluminum Scissor Steps # AS23 Not Suitable for Permanent Installation
