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.


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.


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


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.


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


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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...


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.


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.


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!


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.


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.


Thanks for the updates on my recent ord er.


Easy installation. Fast delivery.


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.


Need a railing to attach to it


Awesome steps! Made in the USA +easy to install +lightweight. We added some glow in the dark tape to aid at night and some traction mat to cushion the steps.


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 !!!


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!


My 2003 Lance 815 (8' 6") came with four 3/8 " diameter studs for mounting stairs below the door and pointed downward. (I contacted Lance about purchasing "bolt-on" steps, but received no response.) I then purchased an aluminum angle brace and drilled to fit the step mounting bracket. Then I drilled the aluminum angle brace to fit the four existing mounting studs. The resulting mounting bracket is about 1" below the door, and the step work very well for a ground clearance of 30 inches. My one issue is where to store the steps when traveling.


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.

  • Do The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps Collapse?
    The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS23 does fold down for storage, so you do not have to leave them fully extended if you don't want to. Simply, remove the arm from the upper bracket, lift the steps up, push the steps down, and secure the, to the keeper located on the back.

    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.

    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.

    The Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS23 are designed for use with in-bed campers, but they simply bolt on with a mounting bracket so you would definitely be able to attach them to a deck. They fit an entry height of 24" - 30" and are 24" wide with an 8" rise.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Can Camper Scissor Steps Be Mounted To The End Of Factory RV Steps
    No, the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # AS23 need a solid base to mount to and the steps on your camper are going to be too unstable to manage the leverage the # AS23 is going to place on them, leading to damage to the factory steps or the # AS23. You'll want to measure the entry height you have and we can then pick out the right steps to fit the height. Additional mounting brackets can be purchased separately with part # AS2002

  • Scissor Step for Slide-In Camper in 2017 Toyota Tacoma 4x4
    The Brophy 4-Step Camper Scissor Steps # AS24 work with campers that have an entryway height of 31 to 39-inches. So long as your camper's threshold is within this height range above level ground this step will work fine. If your camper's door height is lower, in the range of 24 to 31-inches, then instead you can use the similar 3-step unit # AS23. Both of these steps are rated for 300-lbs and are only to be used while your vehicle is stationary. They should not be mounted permanently....

  • 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 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".

  • What Size Scissor Steps for Rear Ramp of Toy Hauler 32 inches From Ground?
    If 32 inches is the height unloaded, I think you are cutting it too close. With your toy hauler loaded, the height will definitely shorten a few inches. You would be better off with the smaller one that is 24 to 30 inches tall. You could mount the steps a little lower to accommodate the unloaded height of the toy hauler. The Aluminum Scissor Steps, 24 inches wide, 24-30 inches tall (part AS23) can be fully extended to 30 inches tall, or can be slightly compressed so that they measure 24...
