No, if you:

  • Get tired of having to take the steps off while you're on the road and then set them up again when you camp

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.

46-1/2" - 58"TLA7806-8000, TLA7506-8000


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.

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.




by:

Love love these stairs. Our old ones were too short and narrow. These were just right and wider. The reflective tape is an added bonus. Great people to deal with as far as shipping I liked how you kept me informed as to the whereabouts of my order.

Still good as new. Have held up well.

I just finished building a new house. I wanted access to the attic but did not want one of those narrow ceiling hatches with pull-down steps. I had a wide door installed 52 inches above the floor (had no choice here as the framing required this) in my game room for access to my entire attic. These steps worked perfectly. I did have to loosen the joint bolts (as described in the directions) to allow for easier pull down and storage. These steps are quite sturdy and well built. They easily support this 220 lbs. guy carrying attic storage items.


Comments
Its been one year and I absolutely love these steps. I purchased the two-step version to step down into my crawlspace. Awesomeness! I would definitely purchase these steps again.
Todd M - 06/21/2016

It took a 6 step to reach the height of our truck camper but these steps fit perfectly. Best made we've seen. Strong, wide, deep ------ now we just want to go camping! Etrailer rocks!! Great customer service, fast delivery and great prices. This is our second purchase from you but won't be our last.


Comments
One year later and even more happy now that weve used them for season. Steps you can put your whole foot on. We didnt want to spend th money, but no question wed buy them again if needed.

Always fast on delivery ,except for something happened and my order ended up in Hawaii a few years ago. Ive never been jealous of a package ,but I really wanted to go pick it up myself. But you guys even hotrodded that back to my door in record time. So you guys always do good. The steps work great ,heavy duty and sturdy. They have glow in the dark large steps that work well after dark. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING CARE OF US CUSTOMERS!!!




by:

These scissor stairs beat the rickety set that came with my 97 Bigfoot camper hands down. The 6 step Tork Lifts work perfectly for my tall basement model camper and each step is level with the stairs extended to the ground. These stairs are heavy which adds to their stability. I plan on leaving them attached to the mounting bracket most of the time. Suggest using marine grade silicon caulk for any penetrations needed for installing mounting the bracket.




by:

I love the stairs! I have had a knee replacement, and using a ladder is out of the question (although I have done it!) My husband has a very nice Bigfoot camper on top of a semi, and getting it to it was impossible for me! Now he is building a deck to go onto the camper and getting into the camper is going to be a breeze with the beautiful stairs and the handrail!




by:

I found the stairs to be easily mounted to the existing hardware that was placed on my Bigfoot in 1996. Same manufacturer but a different model that is more accommodating and sturdy for older users. The glow steps are a nice addition after campfire drinking!




by:

I have now purchased items twice from etrailer and have been extremely satisfied with the product and the service. They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Good job and great service.

Review from a similar GlowStep in RV and Camper Steps


Scissor steps seem fine; just got them mounted on Ford F150 tailgate. Thus, no real feedback on their function other than I like stairs easily detach from truck and mounting bracket.

Installation on tailgate was very difficult. I had to construct my own mounting bracket to back up sheet metal on the tailgate. Underneath the tailgate plastic endcap, the sheet metal had several large holes. The Torklift mounting bracket bolt hole pattern aligned with multiple large holes. Thus I had to construct my own mounting bracket back plate to span the holes in sheet metal.

Etrailer rep answered my online question that the Torklift mounting bracket was good fit for mounting on tailgate of F150. He was wrong and mislead me. Thus giving 2 star rating

I will have our customer service team reach out to you. These scissor steps are typically installed on truck campers.

Review from a similar GlowStep in RV and Camper Steps


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.

Works well with the fox landing. The Original fox landing flexes so much it requires both hands on the grab bar and a helper pushing you up. No hands required here!

Review from a similar GlowStep in RV and Camper Steps


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.

Review from a similar GlowStep in RV and Camper Steps


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.

Review from a similar GlowStep in RV and Camper Steps


Very timely delivery, product looks great, we are currently installing it with a different application, using it for a safer way to thread up machinery, operators need access in middle of equipment above their head, this looks like it will work well. After installation and testing of function I will send a picture and feedback and possibly purchase additional units

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.

As advertised ! Very good quality and, at least for me, easy install. Our camper bought used 10 years ago came with stairs that were never right. 5 steps.
These 6 step stairs were what we needed. Thanks for the prompt delivery also.

Review from a similar GlowStep in RV and Camper Steps


Hard to find a six scissors step , found your site on the web and took a chance as we traveled down the Alcan highway and had a major malfunction with the existing steps that are approaching 20 years old,
Ordered your steps and was impressed with the staff and the updates as they where in route and when I received the package was surprised with all the hardware to handle where ever the steps will be mounted or on what , was really easy on a big foot camper , so as far as ordering and receiving and mounting on camper your 5 star ! But give me a year with your steps before I can review them .

  • Determining the Angle Using TorkLift GlowStep Scissor Steps on Truck Bed 53 Inches Off Ground
    The TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps - 6 Steps - Aluminum - 20" Wide - 325 lbs # TLA7806 will work with your truck bed 53 inches off the ground. These steps fit an entry height between 46-1/2 inches and 54 inches, so you will be on the steeper end of that spectrum. When fully extended the steps reach 52 inches from bracket to ground, so you will have a about a 45 degree angle.

  • Available RV Scissor Steps with 6-Steps
    You can see our range of 6-step RV step assemblies on the linked page. We have none with 7 or 8 steps. All of these feature aluminum construction for reduced weight. You have options with either 6-inch-deep or 8-inch-deep steps. Each item will have a shipping weight shown (above the 'add to cart' button) so you can deduct about 5-lbs for the packaging/carton to estimate the actual weight of the step assembly. Please note that none of these will reach up to the 7-foot height since RVs...

  • Weight of TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps # TLA7806-8000
    The TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps # TLA7806-8000 referenced in your question weigh in at only around 40 pounds total. This light weight is due to its aircraft-grade aluminum construction. The actual weight capacity of the steps is 325 pounds. I have attached the written installation instructions that you can also check out.

  • Can Scissor Steps be Mounted on a Pontoon Boat/Trailer for Getting in and out of the Water
    Technically, you could install scissor steps such as # TLA7806 or # AS25 on anything that you want. However you would need to make sure that the bottom of the steps, when pulled out, makes contact with the ground because that is where half of the support would come from. You also might consider a bunk ladder. I have included a link to the bunk ladder options we have.

  • Availability of 6 Step Scissor Step for Campers
    We do have a 6 step scissor step setup for a camper like the TorkLift part # TLA7806. This is the same style of scissor step as the Brophy part # AS23 you mentioned but has 3 additional steps like you mentioned wanting.

    We have Torklift scissor steps that have 6 steps like the Torklift part # TLA7806 or the part # TLA7506-8000 that come with the landing gear on the bottom of them. Or if you wanted the permanent mount style that also come with the landing gear you would want the part # TLA7836. The mounting bracket height for this is 50-3/8 inches which will be perfect for your 51 inch height that you mentioned.

You can attach these steps to the threshold and they will reach all the way to the ground when pulled out. They also feature glowing parts on each step so they are more visible at night.

I may have a few other options that will work for you, but they will be quite a bit different. The first alternate will be a ladder, like the Jif Marine Telescoping Gunwale Hook Ladder - 4 Steps - 47" Tall - 400 lbs - Stainless Steel # JIF53FR.
