TorkLift's GlowStep Stow N' Go steps offer stability and adjustability. The built-in landing gear legs let you fine-tune the height of the steps. And they can be adjusted independently of one another to stabilize the steps on uneven terrain, eliminating any wobble.


These GlowStep Stow N' Go steps have a bolt-on mounting base that installs on the outside of your camper. The base provides a strong and stable connection to your camper, and it attaches permanently using the included mounting hardware. When you're ready to roll, just collapse the steps, fold them up, and snap them into the base of the bracket. The stabilizing bracket not only holds the steps in place on the outside of your camper, but it also prevents unwanted movement and rattle. For ultimate security, add on a TorkLift pin lock (TLA7509 - sold separately) to lock the steps to the bracket.


Will Torklift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps Work for You?

Scissor steps are typically installed on truck campers. The Stow N' Go scissor steps from Torklift are easy to install and lock into the mounting bracket while on the go. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.


StowNGo Mounting

The Stow N' Go 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 an area of at least 23" wide and 3-1/2" 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?

StowNGo 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.


This page's step assembly is in bold text.


Entry Height21-1/2" Mounting Bracket Width

38-1/2" - 50"TLA7845, TLA7835
46-1/2" - 58"TLA7836, TLA7846


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 Stow N' Go steps for stability, eliminating gaps, and keeps 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 your 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.

The stairs are great, they work excellent. You want to make sure you mock it up before drilling any holes especially if you are going to install the hand rail so it all lines up correctly.



by:

Received a package with the ladder and the handrail in good shape. The only problem is that the parts package for the ladder was open and the parts are spelled out I think I found them all. How was not using this for a RV as it was designed. How was using it as a egress ladder all my boat from the main deck to the flybridge. At work fairly well with minor modifications that I was expecting to make whatever I ordered the ladder. Enclosed is a photo I love the way it looks without the handrail. Thank you for the service I'm satisfied with the product



by:

I just got them installed and they are lighter and better than expected!
On note, when people order these, remind them to order the locking pins also. (BTW, you are out of inventory for them.)

For ultimate security, add on a TorkLift pin lock item # TLA7509, which is sold separately, to lock the steps to the bracket.

These have been working out amazingly! They havent had any issues or problems and I couldnt be happier with them!



by:

Just what we needed to get in and out of our flat bed camper very well built and easy to use



by:

We were extremely satisfied. Our order was delivered within two days. The package was in perfect condition and the torque lift steps that we ordered our exactly what we wanted. We would highly recommend etrailer



by:

Fast delivery. Exactly what I wanted. Easy to install. The only complaint I have is it didn't come with any bolts, so I had to buy them myself. According to the instructions the bolts where to be included.



by:

Heavy duty , sturdy very pleased. Will be ordering some for our new trailer

I have a Lance truck camper in the bed of a Ford superduty 4x4 truck. The door opening to the camper is about 40" above the ground when in the truck. The two step setup that was factory installed on the camper was simply too high above the ground to use. So I installed the Torklift 5 step scissor step system. It is very easy to use, very sturdy, and easily adapts to different ground heights if the camper is parked on a slope. I fabricated a steel bracket that mounts up under the camper to the factory installed mounting studs, then bolted the scissor steps to the new bracket.



by:

These scissor steps make a huge difference for us to safely and easily enter our camper whether it is on the truck or not. I did modify one thing. The gap between the top scissor step and the truck landing was too wide and I was concerned we might step through the opening. I rectified this by attaching one of the original steps to the landing which gave an extra step and took up the space between the top scissor step and the landing. Attached pictures show this modification. The steps still fold nicely to the Arctic Fox Landing while traveling and attacing the steps to the side gave easy reach to the ladder for stability until I reach the handle on the camper itself.



by:

I have a 2022 Lance Truck camper model 825 and they came with the fold down 2 steps which did not work since my 2016 Ford F250 is lifted I added 19inch rims.
So I ordered the Torklift 5 steps to compensate for the Hight of the truck and this model worked out just right. I had to fabricate 2 L shape brackets by using 2 old bed frames made of steel and used the bolt mounts from the old steps. as you can see in the pictures. As of 2023 Lance Campers now have contracted with Torklift to add these Torklift steps to all their truck campers. This is a fine product it does what it is supposed to do. Just have to be creative when you have something that's not an easy fix.



by:

These steps are a game changer! Very sturdy and installation was fairly easy. Fellow truck campers, ditch the bounce of factory steps or the use of a step ladder and get these!



by:

The steps are great. However, the installation instructions were for a different model and the hardware bag was missing the hardware needed for my model requiring me to purchase from a local retailer. Had to call Torklift tech support to clarify installation since the instructions were not for my model. Overall poor attention to detail from Torklift manufacturing.



by:

I installed my tow N Go steps today. Instillation was easy and I think they will work well. The reason I did not give an excellent rating is because the bolt fisher TorkLift provides is two feet short of what is needed. The door on my truck camper is a touch right of center at the back. The door on the bumper is o the left so a five foot bolt fisher is needed. For the price of this unit I would think TorkLift could provide a longer fisher. I ended up soldering some single strand wire musky leader material to the provided bolt fisher to extend it. Had photos but would not upload.



by:

Was very easy to order. Received it fast.
It
was simple to install and works as we wanted it to.
Will continue to order from E Trailer as they are very
trusted and helpful every step of the way



by:

This Torklift stairway is very well engineered and constructed. Installation instructions are very clear an concise. The only problem that I encountered was that the bolt fishing device was too short to install the center and right side bolts on a Lance camper bumper, which is open on only one end. I solved this problem by using an electrical wire crimper to add apiece of piano to the fishing device. Seethe attached photos. Neither etrailer nor Torklift tech support had a solution for me. So , here it is .



by:

Install took about 30 minutes on the back bumper of my Lance camper well built nice looking product just wish the Detachment pins were a little larger but I think they will be just fine have not used them yet the Chaser wire to slide through the bumper worked very well



by:

I installed the steps on a popup truck camper and after a 7500 mile trip to Alaska and back they worked very well. I had to add a piece of angle under the camper to make the installation more solid. See pics



by:

Just installed these on my new Four Wheel camper. Had to add a 2 1/2" x3" block to accommodate the lower bolts. The steps feel very sturdy and look like they may have decent traction in icy conditions. I like that they can be collapsed and removed to store inside for driving on bumpy rough roads. I haven't been camping with these yet but i'm sure they will be safer and more stable than the foldable 2 step flimsy ladder we have been using.



by:

The product works fine. However if I was to do it again I would of ordered a 6 step instead of the 5. When I installed it [which was easy] I discovered my truck was a tad higher than I had measured.
My wife likes the ease of climbing in the Overhead Camper when loaded on the truck.



by:

Well made, steps seem quite sturdy. The thing that frustrated me was the advertised height of 58” causes the steps to angle downward, it is hard to descend the steps. My truck was 56” and the steps are quite awkward. I would say don’t use for anything over 46” in height.



by:

Fit my custom camper perfect, easy installation I will prolly remove the steps when traveling but the setup will make it easy to put the back up and use.



by:

Everything is as advertised! Very stable, the wide steps are great. Straightforward to install the mounting bracket. The stairs retract easily. Adjustment to territory excellent. Love the glo-in-the-dark patches on either side of every step. Quality product!

    We don't have that info handy unfortunately, but finding out what you need is pretty straight forward. What you'll need to do to see if the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA7835 will replace your OEM steps or not is, measure the width and height of the mounting bracket location - you're going to need at least a 23" wide and 3-1/2" tall space.

  • What Does the Bracket Height Measurement Mean for TorkLift GlowStep Stow N Go Scissor Steps
    The mounting bracket height you see listed for the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7836 is the ideal distance from where the bracket will mount below the door threshold to the ground. Based on the height clearance you mentioned this set of steps would be too tall. The 5-step model, # TLA7835, is almost exactly the height you need.

  • Recommended Steps for Box Truck with Rear Platform
    The best option we can offer would be the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps part # TLA7835 which are very stable and the step portion can be easily removed when not in use. In order to affix these to your application you'd need to weld a plate to the platform larger enough for the mounting brackets on the steps.

    A set of the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7835 which uses the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Mounting Bracket # TLA7810 cannot be used as a step in the stowed position. You will therefor need to step over the steps to get in your camper if you are unable to extend the steps.

  • What Steps do you Recommend for my In Bed Camper that Will be More Stable
    They do not produce a step in that size as you have seen. They also do not do custom sizing. As an alternative the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear part # TLA7835 has been specifically designed for use with in bed truck campers. They do make ground contact with the landing gear giving you a more stable step than what we get as standard equipment on most in bed campers

  • Can Cargo Carrier Be Used As Step for Truck Bed Camper
    Since the 19x60 Curt Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches # C18100 has a 500 lb weight capacity you can potentially use it for this application, but my hesitation is that you'd likely be stepping directly on the mesh part of the carrier which is is designed to carry a load that's more spread out than your feet. So while it will definitely hold up, if you step on it enough that mesh will wear down. What I recommend doing is picking up the cargo carrier for your extra cargo and then installing some...
