Video Transcript for Brophy RV and Camper Steps - Truck Camper - SS03 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy Steel Scissor Steps. These are going to be manufactured from steel for strength and durability. The weight capacity on these steps is going to be 300 pounds. They're going to feature a nice, diamond tread surface that's going to really help provide some good grip to prevent falls. The steel is going to have a nice powder coating, a black finish. It does a great job at resisting rust and corrosion and protecting the steel. That way these last a long time and they also look good for a long time.

The vertical height on the unit's going to measure between 24 and 30 inches, so if the area where you need some stairs is between those measurements then this set up is going to work great for your application. At the base the stairs are going to actually self-adjust, and really all throughout the scissor design, they're going to self-adjust to the terrain to provide that maximum amount of stability, and they're going to be able to fold easily for a nice compact storage. The unit's going to come fully assembled, ready to be installed right out of the box, very easy to install and to use. It does come with some detailed installation instructions that are very helpful. It's also going to include your mounting bracket, which is this piece right here. Your mounting bracket has nice V-clamps or V-holds on it that goes around this upper arm, and then it provides that nice, flat surface here at the back that's designed to mount an eighth of an inch below the door, below the lowest point of your door. That measurement is according to the instructions.

But again, this is going to be the included mounting bracket. It's also going to come with 4 lag screws. The bracket itself is going to measure 18 1/4 of an inch long and it's going to have 1-inch lips, so 1 inch tall by 1 inch deep or 1 inch wide. Now a separate mounting bracket is required if you're going to attach these stairs to a pickup tailgate. You can find that bracket here at etrailer.com using part number TSSB.

That is sold separately. The mount hold separation on the unit from outer hole to outer hole, center on center, is going to measure 15 3/4 of an inch, which means that in between which hole we have a hole separation, center on center, of 5 1/4 of an inch. You could also purchase an optional handrail. That's available here at etrailer.com. It's sold separately, part number AHR3. That's really going to help provide some additional stability and safety.

This is going to be the included hardware, so you're going to have your 4 lag screws right there so you can get that mounting bracket installed. The product's going to be made right here in the USA. You can see that it's a 3-step design. If we take a measurement of the actual step size, going across, so overall width, outer edge to outer edge, we're looking at about 18 inches. When it comes to just the width of the step, we're looking at about 17 1/4, and then the depth of just the step is going to be about 6 1/4. Really nice design, very strong, durable design. The steel scissor, that's going to be the scissor design right here. That's going to be 3/16 of an inch thick by 1 inch wide, so a nice durable design. Please keep in mind that this step is only to be used while the vehicle's in a stationary position. You do not want to attach the steps. You definitely want to use the included mounting bracket, so that the step can easily be removed prior to vehicle travel. One other measurement I want to give you real quick is just the distance between the steps, so from the top of one step to the top of the other, I'm just going to put a straight edge across there and I'm going to measure up to that. We're looking at about, it looks to measure about 7 1/2 inches from the top here to the top of this one. Now again, this is going to fold easily for compact storage. What you would want to do is you would want to remove the upper arm from the mounting bracket, and then you can simply push down on the steps. They're going to fold together, and then here at the back, it's going to have a little keeper that's going to keep the steps folded, so as you fold, lift out on that. It's going to click into place, and then they're going to stay nice and compact without expanding back out. Now when they're folded, the overall width is going to be about 18 1/2 inches. The overall height if you have this bracket bent all the way down, that's going to be about 8 1/4 inch tall and then front to back's going to be about 10 inches deep. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy Steel Scissor Steps.

Great product for less than half the price of aluminum steps and equally as good. They are perfect,,shipping was SUPER fast and I saved $162.00 on the purchase of these steps versus a set of aluminum steps I was going to buy. Thanks for an excellent product with such a fantastic price. 274776

I have attached the step photos as you requested. We are happy with the quick service and quality of the product. Our only concern is the large open area from the top step to the trailer, you have to be careful and wee ones with short strides cannot use it alone. 135682

Here’s my review of the removable folding steps I’m bought installed on my old truck. Now I’m an older person that really likes to go camping/fishing at 1-2 weeks at a time, needed some easier way to get me in my camper that’s over 30 inches from the ground that is stable and safe. These folding stairs worked out great for me and are easy enough to remove and store when not used. This unit came with all hard ware needed to install, and directions on how to do the job at task. Very well-built unit, very strong too. My chose to leave my tailgate on my truck worked out great for me. Very happy with the fast shipping and quality of this unit and would remind to others as well. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for…! They get this old man in and out of my camper safely and stable to. Hope this helps others…! 571880

Received these steps today. Seem to be well made. I will be installing them tomorrow. I needed to go to the hardware store first as I needed nut & bolts to do the install Not the Lag Screws that came with the steps. Other than that the steps seem like they will fit the bill really well. I had to cut the rear bumper off the Lance 1010 due to it being bent under enough to make it a dander to use/ trust the bumper as a step any longer. So Now I can use these steps and have a safer way to enter/exit my camper. I am happy with the purchase. 763138

Just got them in, very nice!! Not installed yet but they will work great! The steel are less expensive and hold more weight, not too heavy to handle at all! Great deal! 746109

by:

Well since you asked for a review. truthfully we found the folding step thing heavier than I would have liked. and it is too short to be used with the camper on the truck. And my truck is not raised. I have to use about 3-4 in of 2 x 6 wood boards to get it to work at a safe height. I should have looked at what else was available. It is sturdy. but a longer aluminum one is really what I should have bought. I probably opted for cheap. so my bad most likely. 739950

These portable stairs were exactly what we needed with my slide in truck camper. In a years worth of use, there has never been a problem, the build quality is impressive. I have total confidence these stairs will outlast my truck and camper. They were easy to install, 1 plate/bracket. They are a breeze to take on and off. I just fold, stow and go. 633731

Absolutely perfect. I recently purchased a Freightliner M2 tanker. Unfortunately it was too steep for my dog climb into. The scissor steps made it so much easier for the both of us. I'm sure they weren't designed specifically for dogs but they definitely work. The mount was easy to install and the steps are sturdy, easy to set up and detach. I highly recommend this product 600482

I put the steps on the tail gate for my slide in camper. Using Brophy Tailgate Scissor Step Mounting Bracket - TSSB, installation was easy. It all works well and feels very strong. The spacing between the individual steps (in the horizontal orientation not vertically) is rather large. It takes a little getting used to, but is not terrible. I expect it to last, we will see. Happy with purchase and product. 555303

Bought a set of the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps - 3 Steps, for my older camper that the original steps broke off. Had them installed in about 30 minutes. I couldn't be happier with this product. Extremely sturdy, extremely fast shipping, and the price was terrific!! My wife will now go camping happily. 554469

  • Camper Steps for 24 Inch Doorway and 24 Inch Height
    There are steps that can work for your Northwind camper and I recommend checking out the Brophy Camper Scissor Steps # SS03 which is a triple step that will work with your 24" height. These are not permanently mounted; instead you install a mounting bracket to your camper and then attach the stairs after reaching your destination. I have added a photo from a customer who has these steps installed as well as a link to a video review.

  • Would the Scissor Steps # SS03 fit a 2012 Nissan NV 2500
    If you would be willing to attach the mounting bracket of the # SS03 somewhere 24-30 inches off of the ground the Scissor Steps # SS03 would fit and work well. These are a fairly universal fit step system that should work just fine as long as you install the mounting bracket.

  • Can Brophy Steel Scissor Steps Rust
    The Brophy scissor steps # SS03 are steel with a black powder coat. Steel can rust if it is exposed to the elements.

Another option is to go with the aluminum version, # AS03. Aluminum is naturally corrosion resistant and will not rust like steel. I have linked a video review of the aluminum...

But you might like hitch step # HE4045 if your truck has a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. You would use the tailgate as one step then this step as the second step down.

I haven't heard of anyone attaching them to a vehicle bumper but I am sure it is possible.

    The Econo Porch Trailer Steps, # EHS-102-R, are stand-alone steps that you would place in front of the door of anything. They do not attach to the vehicle so you can use them with your Dutchman RV. They can fold up for storage by removing the braces that normally hold the stairs upright. For steps that attach to the RV you could use Scissor Steps # SS03. It comes with a bracket that attaches to the RV and the steps attach to that for easy on/off operation.
