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 18-1/4" wide and 1" tall.


If it turns out you have more space beneath your doorway, there are larger step assemblies available with 24" 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

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…!

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



- SS03
by:

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.

Not enough space under the door of my Northstar TC650 camper for the stairs to mount. Had to makeshift a piece of plywood with a 2x4 attached to hang off from under my camper to mount it. Not sure if I will keep them at this point. Quality seems fine just doesn't work for a slide in camper.

The scisser steps I recieved work absulutley awsome. Only took 4 days from Missouri USA to Nova Scotia Canada.As advertised easy to install.Noah, my service provider was fanastic on all details and never missed a beat. Three thumbs up.

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!


Comments
Great Product! These were very easy to install. Make sure you measure the distance correctly to get the proper steps. They are light and easy to set on the camper. We would not be able to use our camper without them. Having a handle on the outside of the camper makes them very easy to use even with balance issues my wife has. I would never try a small step ladder again after installing these!

Super Sturdy steps that work perfectly on our Shadow Cruiser Slide in Truck Camper on our Chevy Colorado. This are heavy duty steps, well built and rugged. I would highly recommend these if you are in need of steps.


Comments
These steps are extremely well made, the only modification we did was to apply an anti-slip spray to make them safer. They remain in perfect condition after lots of camping trips.

I really like these steps. They are easy to take down and setup. We normally camp out in the forest where there is little to no artificial lighting so I sprayed some florescent paint on them and they really glow in the woods making them easier to see when entering or exiting the camper.

We have had these step for a year now and they are still working great.

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.

It’s always an easy experience to order from etrailer! Thanks, for the quick service and the quick turn around time!



- SS03
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.



- SS03
by:

I installed these on a self-built tiny house and they work great. Some campsites you can't get a good angle, but that's not the product's fault--that's the campsite. I have found ease in retracting and expanding the steps with no issues. I don't think I have seen any rust on these bad boys yet. They hold a lot of weight and don't feel unsafe in the least.



- SS03
by:

These are solid basic steps. I had repaired my fold under steps several times until finally deciding to remove them. The RV is long and the steps would hit the pavement on odd road to driveway transitions. These folding steps fit the bill since I remove and stow them. There are fancier products out there but those are just fine for entry to the garage on my toyhauler. The price is right!



- SS03
by:

We put this step on our expedition camper. It has held up remarkably well, even the finish looks new after one year of hard use, 3 kids, off road trails, and many visitors walking up and down the steps. Thanks



- SS03
by:

Very handy and works well. Does take up a little space when not in use and one of the pins has become loose, but would definitely buy again.

Perfect fit and looks great

    You can attach the mounting bracket for Brophy scissor steps # SS03 to any flat surface that can support the weight of the steps with a person on them. I haven't heard of anyone attaching them to a vehicle bumper but I am sure it is possible. You might want to consider a step that mounts under the bumper such as # B75304, a tailgate step such as # CAB-SG, or tailgate ladder such as # 10-3000. I have included some links to videos for you.

    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.
