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.

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

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. 628019

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 852937

Works better than I ever expected. Easy on and off and compact in storage, rugged sturdy construction. We love the “no slip “ abrasive pads on the steps. Would definitely recommend these to anyone needing folding/telescoping steps! 682012

We purchased a Brophy 3-step scissor stair unit...but needed the 4 - step. Katie made the the whole thing seem less...new all the right answers and how to make it right. As a Canadian ...I can't stress the importance of getting what you need the first time. Don't guess the math...its costly to return. Although Katie helped me undue my mistake and made good the exchange on my return. It's the return shipping that'll cost ya in the end not to mention the exchange on the dollar. Overall the scissor stairs are amazing. We just recently made a trip to PEI and Nova Scotia and a few campers commented on our Brophy stair system and how good they look. And they are a solid product too. Thanks Katie for all your help. 665298

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. 657231

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.

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. 642242

- AS23

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. 613900

All good and zero rust

Everything was great except the shipping boxes were banged up pretty bad. One of the items had several scratches on it. I really like the items. They are working very well for me. Just think the packaging needs to be sturdier. 541550

This set of steps fit even better then I thought they might without a lot extra work that I anticipated. I wanted a set to put in our "17" Mercedes Sprinter side door and was sure I could "make them work", well they mount to the floor plywood right in the entry and done. Thanks 521085

The scissor steps are perfect for the food truck I'm building. Very strong, easy to install and easy to use. The customer service I received from etrailer was superb, they were very knowledgable and patient with me when I asked many questions trying to decide which product was best for my needs. I will definitely use them again. 518973

These stairs are excellent!!!! They are well built and work perfectly. I hghly recommend them to anyone. 502532

- AS23

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. 478639

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. 472746

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... 435288

- AS23

Sturdy and easy to install on the bumper of my Arctic Fox truck camper. The 3 steps are right for the height of my camper when loaded onto truck. I would have given it 5 stars except for the gap between the last step an bumper. As I read in another post, if one fell into the gap and fell, I feel that a serious injury could occur. I cured that problem by filling the gap with and appropriate size of wood block placed on the top folding camper step. 430402

- AS23

These stairs are excellent. Light weight, easy to install, nice and wide with great grip. Has been a year and I'm always thankful to have these stairs. Highly recommend! 416671

- AS23

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. 416632

- AS23

Great product, I am a big guy and find the steps stable and safe. We have a big dog with leg problems and he finds the stairs easy to climb. Unit was shipped and delivered on time, many thanks for your service. 402287

  • Where Does Scissor Step AS23 Install Typically at Rear of Camper
    If you check out the install picture I attached for the # AS23 you can see where it normally installs at the rear of a camper that is installed on a truck. Without seeing your setup it's hard to be more specific but there should be a spot on the camper below the door that allows the mounting bracket to install.

  • What Is Distance From Mounting Strip To Top Step On Brophy Aluminum Scissor Steps
    I went to the warehouse and pulled one of the Aluminum Scissor Steps, part # AS23 to take a measurement for you. I have attached a photo of the top mounting strip and step you can check out. 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.

  • Aluminum Scissor Steps AS23 Dimensions
    The height measurement on the item you selected is 24 to 30 inches to the mounting bracket. As long as the distance from the area the stairs are to be mounted straight down to the ground is within this 6 inch range the stairs will work nicely. We have other sizes of steps (see links below) if this size is not correct for you. I have posted links to hand rails for the adjustable steps also. If I can be of further assistance let me know.

  • What are the Roll Pins Made of on the Aluminum Scissor Steps part # AS23

  • Replacement RV Steps for 2015 Shasta Flyte Travel Trailer
    From the photos I've seen of your 2015 FR Shasta Flyte 215CK, it looks like you need a 2-step unit. To identify the correct replacement, you'll want to determine the width of the mounting base of your existing steps. If that base is about 27-1/2 inches, either the Hickory Springs # 98224EXTALC1 or the Flexco # SMFP-2100 would be a good choice. Due to the additional corrosion resistance offered by the aluminum step treads of the Hickory Springs model, that would be my recommendation. If...

  • Why are Brophy Aluminum Scissor Steps # AS23 Not Suitable for Permanent Installation
    Brophy does not recommend their Aluminum Scissor Steps # AS23 for permanent installation due to their height when retracted. Even when fully retracted the steps will have a height of 10-1/2-inches which could present a hazard. Their other steps that you referenced, part # AS02, extend down only 7-inches when retracted. Also, the # AS23 Aluminum Scissor Steps have nothing to hold them in place while travelling.

  • Recommended Camper Steps For Evergreen Trailer
    Since the distance from the bottom of your door sill is 30 inches I recommend steps like part # AS23. These steps are 24-inches wide and 8-1/2 inches deep. These steps are designed to expand from 24 to 30-inches. The mounting bracket and screws are included. Just secure the bracket to your camper and clip the stairs into the "V" clamps on the mounting bracket. Since you said you have a steel beam, you will need to drill into the frame to mount the step bracket.

  • 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.

    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".
