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.

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.

Video Transcript for FAQ Trailer Step Measuring

Hey guys, this is Jake here with etrailer. Today, we're gonna go over some details and the measurements that you're gonna need to take if you're wanting to replace your fifth wheel or your travel trailer steps. If you're looking to replace your motor home or your RV steps, we're gonna have a separate video made just for that. Now, a couple of reasons why you might want to replace your steps. One of the biggest reasons is because people don't like these pull out steps because they're uncomfortable and makes for a not pleasant experience on the inside of the camper if they're folded out because they hover above the ground. When somebody steps on 'em, it rocks the whole camper.

So that might be a reason why you wanna upgrade from the pullout style steps to the fold out style which will fold up into the door of your camper. The nice part about the fold out is that they're going to be rested on the ground, so all the weight from the person walking into the camper is gonna be pushing on the ground and not pulling on the side of the camper. With that being said, a lot of people like this style because it's not gonna take up space on the inside of your door. So regardless of which kind you would like to go with, there's gonna be different measurements for each. There's gonna be a measurement for the pullout style if you wanna replace just the steps you have outside already.

And then there's gonna be different measurements for the fold up style, to be able to measure, you know, you're gonna have to measure from the ground to the inside and then side to side in the door. So, it's gonna be different because they're gonna be located in a different spot. Now, here we have a different set of pull down camper steps. The reason why I switched from my camper to these is because my camper, the bracket's actually welded in. If that's the case, you're just gonna have to cut it out.

But the reason we're showing you here is because these are bolted on and I'll be able to give you the proper measurements to replace 'em. So, first measurement you need to take is from this bracket, the bracket that's actually attached to your camper, not the step bracket, from the inside to the inside of these two brackets, which for us here is gonna be 27.5. And then what you need to do is you need to measure the depth of this bracket. So from this outer edge here to the trailer frame. Good for that.

We get about 13 and 3/8. And then the last measurement is from the ground. Now you wanna make sure you're on level ground and your camper is level from the ground to this bolt right here on the outside. So that. we're getting about 26 and 1/4. Now, if you're looking to upgrade to a set of fold-down steps that actually store inside of your camper, the two measurements that you need to take is from inside flange to inside flange, not the inside of the actual door frame, because it's gonna need to fit in between these flanges. So for us measure right up against there and we get about 24.5. You can see there. The other measurement we need to take is from the ground, again, being on level ground from the ground to the top inside of the threshold itself. So for us, it's going to be about 35. And the last thing that you need to do is you need to match up the measurements that you've taken, whether you're replacing your steps that came on your camper or you're replacing them and upgrading to the fold up type. You just need to match up those measurements to the measurements on our product page for the steps that you're looking for. Well, guys, hopefully this information was helpful in helping you to find the right information and the right measurements you need to replace your camper steps. If you have any questions, please leave 'em in comments below and we'll see you next time..

The steps are great, easy to install. Better care when packaging would make it even better.

These Torklift GlowStep Scissor Steps (6 step) with Landing Gear are excellent! I built a fixed platform top step to mount these so that we can use them to board our very tall houseboat when it's on the trailer in our yard. The steps attach approximately 50" off the ground, with the highest step about 48" off the ground, plus the top step of the platform I built, bringing us to the requisite 54" of height to climb aboard easily.

Much quicker, easier, and safer for our kids to go up and down than a ladder, especially when carrying objects like blankets, toys, or heavy propane cylinders. Best of all, I can fold them up out of the way to mow the lawn.

They're less wobbly than I thought they might be. At the top three steps, you can feel ever so slight flex, but nothing disconcerting that throws you off balance. And I trust the 325lbs. rated capacity. I weigh 190 and I jumped on them (gently), with very little flex and no sense they were in danger of buckling.

They were a little spendy with the landing gear, but worth it in my opinion for the safety and convenience they add for our needs. I would estimate the 6-step version with landing gear weighs ~40 lbs., but it feels lighter than that to carry (no problem to move them around). I was surprised that I had to install the Landing Gear legs myself when ordered this way, but it only took removal of four screws/nuts and about 15 minutes to replace the stock aluminum leg with the Landing Gear.

The Landing Gear is super nice. The legs are lighter than expected, and very easy to adjust, with swivel feet and multiple height settings to accommodate uneven terrain easily. Again, they're a little spendy but nicer than anything I could've built myself, and probably lighter and stronger too. What good are stairs if you can't level them properly for good stability, so I think they're a must-have.

All in all, very nice stairs and the best solution you're going to find of this collapsible/portable/lightweight type. Highly recommended!



by:

These steps are a life saver. The steps that came with our camper are a death trap. I can't believe we didn't order these sooner! I highly recommend this product for anyone with a camper that has a high entry point. E-Trailer has been extremely helpful and professional and is what customer service should be like.

Great heavy duty steps, it will work great for my application

Still great, can’t say enough on how well built they are. Only thing I added is so reflective tape on the sides and front so if I have them down at a rest stop they can be seen

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? On this purchase was a 10/10 and

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.



by:

Rapid delivery, very well-packed, and complete hardware complement.
As always, well done by eTrailer.



by:

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.



by:

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:

These are very high quality steps! I mounted them to a large aluminum storage box that I have on a receiver style hitch plate The box and step combo make it really nice for getting up and into my camper. The nice thing about these steps is that you can purchase addition mounts and place them at other locations and use the same steps. They also fold and stow very neatly. I purchased the pin lock assy.... but if you have the room they are easy to remove and store elsewhere.



by:

Great product. Light weight, sturdy, well worth the safety. Easy to install on camper, hook up and take down a snap. Pleasure to deal with etrailer, fast shipping and pleasant employees. Knowledgeable and helpful. Steps work in Canada!



by:

Order came sooner than expected !!! Etrailer.com offers used item at a discounted price which was amazing deal. And item is in perfect like new condition. Highly reccomend



by:

Mounted to the bottom of the sprinter on the drip rail and works great.



by:

Sheila was very helpful steps came on time. All the products I have received from etrailer have been correct and on time. 5 stars to Sheila for her help.



by:

This step is wonderfully! Lightweight, easy to use, and very sturdy. Great product and perfect for our application.



by:

very happy with the stairs, they don't fit the existing rail on the camper, but we are able to replace the rail with the one included with the kit. Thank you



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.

Excellent Add-on - Access either side now, Happy Wife, Happy Life!



by:

The perfect item to make easier access in and out of our Arctic Fox 1150. It work well with the Torklift glow steps. I love when folded down you can still access the storage tray. One very minor disappointment the instructions shows lock washer which my hardware pack did not have in it.



by:

Great customer service and speedy delivery! We clamped the steps into place and theylook great. Can't wait to get them mounted on our rig.



by: 04/16/2024

Great product!



by:

We are so glad we invested in these. I have bad knees and use a cane, so having these wide and sturdy steps makes it easy for me to enter and exit using my cane! Our setup is a little unusual, a built up canopy on a dually flatbed. The steps are so quick and easy to put up and down. We bought the six step model but found we only needed five. With some online instructions wow were able to tackle that too. We also bought the small keyed lock that is available.

  • Larger Mounting Options for Lippert Steps
    Good news, I can help you find a wider step than the 24 inch LC341504. I've linked all the steps for you but if you look through the filters there should be a measurement column and there are sizes from 14 inches to 30 inches wide. The Lippert Steps are made for RVs which is why they are the 24 inch wide spread. I have something similar that may work for you that has brackets that have a variety of widths.
