TorkLift's GlowStep Stow N' Go steps offer stability and adjustability. The built-in landing gear legs let you fine-tune the height of the steps. And they can be adjusted independently of one another to stabilize the steps on uneven terrain, eliminating any wobble.


These GlowStep Stow N' Go steps have a bolt-on mounting base that installs on the outside of your camper. The base provides a strong and stable connection to your camper, and it attaches permanently using the included mounting hardware. When you're ready to roll, just collapse the steps, fold them up, and snap them into the base of the bracket. The stabilizing bracket not only holds the steps in place on the outside of your camper, but it also prevents unwanted movement and rattle. For ultimate security, add on a TorkLift pin lock (TLA7509 - sold separately) to lock the steps to the bracket.


Installation

Scissor steps are typically installed on truck campers. The Stow N' Go scissor steps from Torklift are easy to install and lock into the mounting bracket while on the go. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.


Will Torklift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps Work For Me?

StowNGo Mounting

The Stow N' Go 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 and measure the width and height. You will need an area of at least 23" wide and 3-1/2" tall.


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


How Many Steps Do I Need?

StowNGo 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 tell you how many steps you need.


The chart below displays entry height measurements in the first column. The step part numbers with the 21-1/2" mounting bracket width are in the second column.


This page's step assembly is in bold text.


Entry Height21-1/2" Mounting Bracket Width
23-1/2" - 34-1/2"TLA7843, TLA7833
31" - 42"TLA7844, TLA7834
38-1/2" - 50"TLA7845, TLA7835
46-1/2" - 58"TLA7836, TLA7846


How Do I Install the Steps?

To install the steps:

  1. Determine the correct mounting spot for the bracket by unfolding the steps, attaching them to the mounting bracket using the "V" clamps, and setting them in place against the camper or bumper. Make sure they are centered beneath the doorway.
  2. Once you have determined the best spot, mark where the mounting holes will go on the camper, set aside the steps and bracket, and drill holes into the camper wall.
  3. Remove the steps from the bracket for mounting.
  4. Secure the bracket in place under the camper doorway with lag screws.
  5. Attach the stairs to the mounting bracket with the included pins and extend until the foot bar touches the ground.
  6. The steps lock into the mounting bracket with manual side locks and deploy using the release lever.

GlowStep Accessories

Torklift Accessories

Add any of these accessories to your Stow N' Go steps for stability, eliminating gaps, and keeps your steps and RV interior clean. The GlowGuide handrail (TLA7621 - sold separately) attaches to the outside of your RV and a bracket on the bottom of the steps. This helps to steady the assembly and adds 25 lbs to the weight capacity of the stairs. The SafeStep vinyl barrier (TLA7602 - sold separately) easily fastens with Velcro strips in between any 2 steps. This prevents your or your pets from accidentally slipping between steps. The DirtDestroyer boot brush (Tla7603 - sold separately) affixes to the bottom of the steps so you can scrape your shoes before climbing into your RV.

Fit my custom camper perfect, easy installation I will prolly remove the steps when traveling but the setup will make it easy to put the back up and use.

Excellent product, still filling my needs as expected



by:

Steps work well. I had to fabricate a custom mount for my application but it performs as designed



by:

Well made, steps seem quite sturdy. The thing that frustrated me was the advertised height of 58” causes the steps to angle downward, it is hard to descend the steps. My truck was 56” and the steps are quite awkward. I would say don’t use for anything over 46” in height.



by:

I didn't purchase the steps for an RV. I purchased this product specifically because of its durability since it would normally be mounted on the outside of an RV. I live on a canal and the slope to the water is deep. I couldn't afford to build a whole new dock so I got the steps to lay fully opened on the ground down to the water. It's secured with bolts in cement in the ground at the top. The weight is substantial because of its very good quality so it's secure on the slope. The steps have safety tread built in. Eventually I will get a railing, but for now I am completely satisfied with the steps. I can confidently get to the canal and in and out of my kayak.



by:

Great product. Should be standard on all trailers. I have multiple trailers and use them from salt winter Vermont roads to hot humid Florida roads. Usually get 6 months out of blade style 7 pin. These are far superior!



by:

Great stairs. Very good service and nice to get a follow up a year later so you can give a proper accolade. Thanks



by:

not installed yet, but the product looks great as expected. like always etrailer is easy and very quick shipping. Thanks again



by:

We use the stairs for our dogs to get in and out of the bay. They love it and so do we!



by:

We have one year to use on those stairs using them every day they work very well with no troubles. These stairs were installed in a tiny house for access to a loft bedroom we retract them and extend them every day flawlessly

I have a Lance truck camper in the bed of a Ford superduty 4x4 truck. The door opening to the camper is about 40" above the ground when in the truck. The two step setup that was factory installed on the camper was simply too high above the ground to use. So I installed the Torklift 5 step scissor step system. It is very easy to use, very sturdy, and easily adapts to different ground heights if the camper is parked on a slope. I fabricated a steel bracket that mounts up under the camper to the factory installed mounting studs, then bolted the scissor steps to the new bracket.



by:

Easy installation, good quality product, stable stairs when deployed.
Like the abilty to pull the 2 pins and easily remove the assembly from the bracket and lock it to the bracket with the same pin lock as the Fastgun bed camper tiedowns. Included all stainless steel bracket mounting hardware for mounting to metal bumper or on wood. very nice product overall.



by:

I installed my tow N Go steps today. Instillation was easy and I think they will work well. The reason I did not give an excellent rating is because the bolt fisher TorkLift provides is two feet short of what is needed. The door on my truck camper is a touch right of center at the back. The door on the bumper is o the left so a five foot bolt fisher is needed. For the price of this unit I would think TorkLift could provide a longer fisher. I ended up soldering some single strand wire musky leader material to the provided bolt fisher to extend it. Had photos but would not upload.



by:

Arrived in a couple days to a part of the country where most Amazon orders take almost a week. Order was correct and the product is built like you would expect from TorkLift.



by:

Trevor W. and etrailer did a great job. Quick shipping. Product as described. Easy install.

Excellent “steps” for a high clearance Truck Camper!



by:

These scissor steps make a huge difference for us to safely and easily enter our camper whether it is on the truck or not. I did modify one thing. The gap between the top scissor step and the truck landing was too wide and I was concerned we might step through the opening. I rectified this by attaching one of the original steps to the landing which gave an extra step and took up the space between the top scissor step and the landing. Attached pictures show this modification. The steps still fold nicely to the Arctic Fox Landing while traveling and attacing the steps to the side gave easy reach to the ladder for stability until I reach the handle on the camper itself.



by:

Mounted this on camper. Because bummer was weak, my husband build a box, attached that ontop of camper bumper, then attached this. Great work around as our camper was so high, without this step I could not teach door handle. Love it!



by:

The steps are great. Installation directions were clear and the end result looks really good. The only advice I can give is to measure the steps when the camper is on the truck (I had to swap out for a larger set) and look closely at where you are mounting it- I put it a little closer than I wanted to my propane access.



by:

Killer steps. My Cirrus 820 truck camper came with a 2step Lippert, but my wife didn’t feel comfortable or safe. The 4 step Glow Steps are perfect!



by:

I have a 2022 Lance Truck camper model 825 and they came with the fold down 2 steps which did not work since my 2016 Ford F250 is lifted I added 19inch rims.
So I ordered the Torklift 5 steps to compensate for the Hight of the truck and this model worked out just right. I had to fabricate 2 L shape brackets by using 2 old bed frames made of steel and used the bolt mounts from the old steps. as you can see in the pictures. As of 2023 Lance Campers now have contracted with Torklift to add these Torklift steps to all their truck campers. This is a fine product it does what it is supposed to do. Just have to be creative when you have something that's not an easy fix.



by:

I’ve always been very impressed with torklift products. From their camper tie downs to their super hitch and super truss. Now I just installed their glowsteps on my 2021 Arctic Fox 990 slide in camper. I attached it to the fox landing. The glow step mount was a few inches wider than the landing but I just let it hang out the extra width and drilled and bolted it to the landing with the 6 provided stainless steel bolts. Outstanding quality and all the tork lift products I purchased through etrailer and received all in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend both torklift and etrailer to anyone.



by:

Very sturdy and quick to pack away. Installation was not too difficult at all.



by:

Great way to get into my truck camper. Keep them lubed for easy, one-handed extend & contract.



by:

Great steps and easy to use.
The glow
in the dark part does not work as good as they make it out to be, but still highly recommend these step.

  • What Are Maximum and Minimum Extensions for TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps
    The TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA7836 have a max extension of 54" (see attached) but when it comes to minimum extension there really isn't a specific number - you just need to make sure the landing gear can remain flat on the ground and understand that the steps will overlap the closer you get to your trailer. I confirmed all of this with my contact at TorkLift. Hope this helps you out!

  • What Does the Bracket Height Measurement Mean for TorkLift GlowStep Stow N Go Scissor Steps
    The mounting bracket height you see listed for the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7836 is the ideal distance from where the bracket will mount below the door threshold to the ground. Based on the height clearance you mentioned this set of steps would be too tall. The 5-step model, # TLA7835, is almost exactly the height you need.

  • Collapsible Steps For Basement Entry With 5' Entry Height
    Hello Gwen, we do have a potential option for you, but unfortunately, there is nothing made specifically for a 5' (60") entry height. The closest thing we have is the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7836 which has 6 steps and is made to span up to a 58" entry height. If you can find a way to reduce the entry height by 2 or 3 inches, this step will work very nicely. Otherwise you can use the Single Add-On Step # TLA7801 to add an additional step.

    The TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA7836 are not designed to be retracted and extended from the top of the steps. This would be difficult to accomplish since these steps will mount below the door and you would have to hang out the door to pull up the steps and anchor them into the mounting bracket. You might find a set of steps like the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps # TL77YR easier to use in this manner as these fold up inside the door. Do...

  • Option For Replacement Pins For TorkLift GlowStep TLA7836
    Hey Glenn, we do have a potential option for a replacement pin. The pins that come with the TorkLift GlowStep # TLA7836 are not available individually, so I am afraid we cannot offer a direct replacement. What we do have is the Pin Lock for TorkLift GlowStep Scissor Steps # TLA7509, which can be used to replace the pins that hold the step to the bracket (see picture below). The # LP14 that you were looking at appears to be the right size pin. The problem is there is no clip on the other...

    We have Torklift scissor steps that have 6 steps like the Torklift part # TLA7806 or the part # TLA7506-8000 that come with the landing gear on the bottom of them. Or if you wanted the permanent mount style that also come with the landing gear you would want the part # TLA7836.

Unfortunately, the Victory Step Manual Fold-Down Steps for RV and Toy Haulers # LC726895 will only work with entryways that are 30-45 inches high. Victory Step models sadly do not come with a 5-step option that will be able to get you the 50-inch height you need.
