TorkLift GlowStep Glow-in-the-Dark Tape

Made of durable, rustproof aluminum, the GlowSteps are built to last. The heavy-duty stainless steel hinges provide strength and stability, and they can be easily taken apart in case you need to remove steps or add a step onto the existing stairs. SureGrip tread on each step surface helps to ensure proper footing as you climb into or out of your camper or RV.

Each strip of tape requires only 5 minutes of light exposure for it to illuminate up to 10 hours.


Will Torklift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps Work for You?

Scissor steps are typically installed on truck campers. The GlowStep scissor steps from Torklift are simple to install. After the initial installation, they're also 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.


Torklift Scissor Mounting

The Torklift GlowStep 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 a mounting space of at least 20" wide x 1" 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 You Need?

Torklift 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.

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
  3. Place the step assembly against the camper or bumper

    -Make sure the assembly is centered beneath the doorway

  4. Mark the mounting holes on the camper and drill
  5. Remove the steps from the bracket and set aside
  6. Attach the mounting bracket to the camper

    -Secure in place with included lag screws

  7. Attach the stairs to the mounting bracket and extend

GlowStep Accessories

Torklift Accessories

Add any of these accessories to your GlowSteps for stability, eliminating gaps, and keeping 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 you 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.

Super impressed…great product, great service, great customer support, great tracking on shipment, great follow up. Highly recommend etrailer.com. We will definitely be using these folks for our RV purchases. Absolutely the best online shopping experience we have ever had!!!



by:

Solid steps. Great purchase and worth the money.



by:

I give this product 4 stars.

Adding
a side man door to my truck to rv conversion required a set of special folding steps.

After a year I am still impressed.

These stairs are strong and durable.

I weigh 250 lbs.

All through the construction phase of my project, I
have gone up and down, in and out hundreds of times carrying various construction related loads.

With all of the use to date, my TorkLift Scissor Steps are tight and right with many more years of service to enjoy in the future.

I had a 3 stair unit on my truck camper which was very precarious so I upgraded to this 5 step. The difference is tremendous. I especially love the glow steps. Great product and very sturdy.

Perfect, I love the smaller steps for the sake of my knees!

Since I was unable to purchase direct from Tork Lift, I ordered the steps through ETrailer.
Just a few days later, I was contacted by Tork Lift that I had won the same item for submitting the best sob story in their contest. The steps that I received from ETrailer are still in the original box, resting on the counter top next to the non-working fridge. The fit through the camper door was painless, and so far they have been problem free holding down the counter top. The camper was last licenced in 2007. The 'factory supplied' 5 steps that I already had came with every tread set at a different angle. I have been a Tork Lift customer since near their beginning. If they make something I already know that it is the best quality & engineering out there. Adding the landing gear means the end of wood blocks
and shimming to level the bottom step.



by:

I mounted one on my travel trailer and one on my Lance truck camper. Both applications have been exceptional. The step is very sturdy and easy to adjust and deploy. I fabricated a unit that mounts in my hitch receiver to hold the bottom of the step while traveling with the lance camper. It takes 3 seconds to deploy the step (no lifting of the step as a unit and it stays mounted to the outside of the camper).



by:

I've mounted these step's along with the hand railing and we really like them. Makes it easy to get in and out . I feel a lot safer knowing my wife can get in and out of the camper with the stability of the hand rails. Unable to send pictures at this time but will as soon as I can. We have order several items from etrailer and your service was very good . Thank you I'm sure we will be ordering from you in the furture.



by:

I ordered these steps after doing a lot of research and review checking. Turns out they were the best option for the older truck camper we have. Steps are just as strong and sturdy as advertised. I would highly recommend that if you find yourself in need of new steps, these Torklift steps or their newer versions are something you should throw in the mix to consider.



by:

Camper step for my Bigfoot camper. Much better step than the one delivered from Bigfoot. I have almost all accessories for my camper from TorkLift. I have never regreted a torklift product purchase.
etrailer has fantastic service with quick shipping.



by:

These tears were great I really like how they’re easy to takeoff and put on and how they fall together into a small package. I deducted one star because I bought the handholds for the stairs and I just don’t like the way that it attaches at the bottom. You just stick it in the holes in the bottom and it makes it not a stable as it should be. I think how it attaches at the bottom should be redesigned.



by:

Steps are exactly what we wanted. The only problem was that we should have ordered a 4 step instead of a 5 step like the dealer told us to - that was their screw up. The nice thing about these steps is that they are bolted together so all we had to do was remove one step and voila! We made our own 4-step and it works great!

Love these steps! Very sturdy and easy to see in low light!

I have purchased a ton of accessories made by TorkLift that I purchased from/through etrailer. TorkLift Fastguns, frame mounted truck camper tie-downs, upper and lower StableLoads and last year I replaced my factory RV steps with these TorkLift GlowSteps. I had a problem fitting the “scissor steps” to my truck camper because my measurements fell in between the measurements nessesary for three-step set and a two-step set of stairs. After much debate I purchased the 3 step set and it turned out that the 2 step GlowSteps actually fit my application much better. etrailer customer service assisted me making the exchange as inexpensive and fast as possible. We as consumers have countless retail outlets to purchase from online from but it is good customer service that keeps us using and supporting the same business repeatedly. etrailer?

The 5 step Torklift steps work very well for our setup. We have a Ram pickup that is lifted and running 37" tires. Bought the steps for a Four Wheel Camper Hawk popup camper. The mount point for the stairs is 42" off the ground, so we needed a good solution for entry/exit, it's way too tall for us to use step stools or short ladders.

The steps were easy to install (took about 30 minutes total) and are very solid in use. The landing gear option for the base was a very good addition as we are almost always camped on uneven terrain. The landing gear is very adjustable with enough steps/stops so I can always get the steps level and solid.

Attaching and removing the steps is pretty quick. They weigh 31.5 lbs, so there's a bit of heft to them, but to be expected for something as heavy duty as these are.

Overall, my wife and I really like the steps after our first year of use. They are solid, the treads provide a good grip even when wet, snowy, muddy, or all of the above. The glow strips are nice too in the late evening or middle of the night and provide a good step guide.



by:

I bought these stairs at what I felt was a pretty hefty price only to find it either used or a demonstrator model with scratches and dings directly from the sealed box from the manufacturer. Furthermore the manufacturing process has poor quality control with the aluminum struts having been cut with a water-jet and never being eased or smoothed out in any way. Next, the holes in the bracket are 3/8" in diameter but the supplied lag bolts which some of us must use due to the design of our campers are tiny #14 x 1 1/2! Right in the literature it says if you use the supplied lag bolts your warranty is void. Yes, you read that right. Oh, someone needs a swift kick! A trip to town and I bought bigger, longer stainless steel lags and bushings to make it work right but obviously these should have been included. HOWEVER - etrailer was excellent to work with and had superior communication at every step. They were also very gracious in addressing my concerns.

The Torklift steps are so functional and comfortable for my basement slide in. And etrailer is my goto for purchases of rv pieces and parts.

  • Scissor Step Options for Truck Bed Camper with Door Measuring 38-1/2 Inches Above Ground
    Going with a 5 step or a 4 step scissor step for your slide-in truck bed camper will depend on where you want to mount the step, the manufacturer of the step, and also personal preference. If you like the TorkLift GlowSteps better, I spoke with my contact at TorkLift and he recommended a 5-step scissor step # TLA7805 for your camper's door height. He said if it was mounted lower, the 4-step # TLA7804 would work fine, but he would go up to the 5-step scissor step. I personally also think...

  • Can the GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps # TLA7805 be Used on an Eagle Cap 1200 Truck Bed Camper
    Yes, since the mounting bracket for the TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps # TLA7805 can be mounted under your door this will reduce the distance for that last step into your camper. I went out to the warehouse and found that the mounting bracket for the steps measures 1" tall and 20" long. Just be sure that this can fit under your door and that there is a solid place for the screws to install into for a secure connection (see attached installation instructions). Please note that...

  • Actual Weight of TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps TLA7805
    No need to worry! The 350-lbs referred to in our description of the TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps # TLA7805 is their weight carrying capacity, not the actual weight of the step assembly. The step itself weighs only about 34-lbs thanks to its aluminum construction. But if you wanted to add more weight carrying capacity to the step you can add the matching handrail # TLA7621 which gives it a weight rating of 375-lbs.
