Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Are tired of taking off the steps every time and want something you can just fold up and secure when you're ready to hit the road
  • Put your camper to frequent use and need adjustable steps that you can replace individually to keep them in good shape for years
  • Have a camper with an entry height (the distance from the ground to where the steps attach) between 23-1/2" and 34-1/2"

No, if you:

  • Don't have room below the threshold of the door for the bracket to fit - you need at least 23" x 3" to get it mounted properly
  • Prefer a black mounting bracket
8" x 20" Aluminum steps are designed for truck bed campers. Steps mount on camper and don't need to be removed for travel. Easy deployment with retention strap.

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
23-1/2" - 34-1/2"TLA7843, TLA7833

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.

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:

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 .

We mounted a receiver hitch cargo carrier on an extended receiver tube and I mounted the steps on the rear of the cargo carrier. These steps are stable and performed very well on several trips including a four month 18K mile trip to Alaska. I did have to alter the mounting so they stow almost flipped over backwards to maintain clearance on inclines but that has nothing to do with the steps: only our particular use. Highly recommended!

Great set of steps. They were exactly as I had hoped.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


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

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


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.

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.)

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.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


Steps work well. I had to fabricate a custom mount for my application but it performs as designed




by:

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


This worked out even better than I had hoped. We have a backyard storm shelter. They come with a steep set of stairs. Our 100 pound dog couldn't use the ladder and it is impossible to carry an unwilling dog into the shelter. Voila - these stairs are the perfect solution. Leave them steep for us then open them out for the dogs. Even the big one just walks down. Even better for us while we are in the shelter we can close the steps and have more floor space.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


These stairs replaced the factory stairs/patio bumper on a Northern Lite truck camper. The stairs are a good fit for the camper but you need to account for the basement compartment that has an access door. That means installing the stairs below the "basement" and having a long step up from the last step to the camper. I had a local welding shop attach an intermediate step to the portable stair outside the door that made the transition easier. Not perfect but much better that the original. The stairs are made well and the glow step is useful at night. The rubber fasteners that hold the stairs up and out of the way are great. A great solution for truck campers.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


Solid and well built. I mounted on a 4” aluminum L for use on my outfitter caribou lite 6.5. Eventually I will build an aluminum extended tailgate and offset the steps so I don’t need to remove when traveling as they block license plate visibility.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


Great product. Should be standard on all trailers. I have multiple trailers and use them from salt winter Vermont roads to hot humid Florida roads. Usually get 6 months out of blade style 7 pin. These are far superior!

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


The stairs are okay. Shipping was absolutely horrid. They arrived with the box open, no packing material. A bolt is actually missing from the stairs, they were so banged up they appears to be used.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


Thanks for following up. We ordered this from you not having any previous experience with your company or products. I can say honestly we are very happy with both!



I must confess, however, these steps are not for an RV. We have an office that has a window designated for "emergency egress." Office occupants could not safely and easily access the window without steps. Moreover, to conserve space, the steps needed to be able to retract out of the way. Solution: your retractable RV steps! They are sturdy, the height is perfect and they fold out of the way-check, check, check.



I didn't go to the link you provided since our organization frowns on using external links in email. But please forward our comments to your reviews.



Glad we found these and glad for your help.

three separate types of steps and these are the most solid and easy to use, the contact with the ground is a game changer.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


I'm pleased with the quality of the 5 step Stow N' Go Scissor Steps. I had to manufacture a bracket to mount the steps to my Arctic Fox camper bumper as the steps would not mount directly. Once that was done, the steps have been solid and safe. I'm glad I ordered the 5 step as sometimes that extra step is needed. All in all, quite pleased with the quality of the product.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


I’ve never been disappointed with a Tork Lift product, I have their Camper tie down kit AND the Stable Loads on this truck, so putting the Glow Steps on was a no brainer. etrailer had the best price, free shipping and the order process was simple. Arrived a day earlier than I expected!
Easy install, solid set of steps, completely changed the access dynamic of our truck camper. I’d buy again.
My only request would be that Tork Lift would make the bolt holder/fisher tool about 2’ longer as I installed on a bumper that only opened on one end.

Review from a similar GlowStep Stow and Go in RV and Camper Steps


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

  • Can Torklift GlowSteps part # TLA7843 Fit Trailer that is 25 inches Off Ground
    When installed the mounting bracket for the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps # TLA7843 is designed to be 27-7/8 inches from the ground. If your trailer height is 25 inches off the ground you should be close enough to get the bracket where it needs to be to function properly.

  • Can the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Steps be Mounted on a Flat surface Rather tha an Upright
    No the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear part # TLA7843 needs to be mounted to a vertical surface. The one way around this would be to have bracket fabricated at a local shop to change your mounting position to a vertical one. The mounting bracket is 21.5" wide so if that matches the width of your opening you will be in good shape. If it doesn't give me the width and a pic of the steps and I can make a suggestion for you.

  • Are The TorkLift GlowSteps Available Without the Glow Strips?
    The TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps with Landing Gear # TLA7843 is only available with the glow strip tape.

They have a 350 lb weight capacity that can be raised to 375 lbs with handrail # TLA7621. They are constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum and made in the USA.

  • Torklift Glowstep Recommendation for Doorway Height of 36 Inches
    Since your doorway/threshold height is 36 inches the correct Torklift GlowStep is the part # TLA8004 which has a threshold height range of 32-1/2" - 44" and would work perfectly. I attached an install video for this kit as well as a picture of what it looks like installed too.

You would need the GlowStep Revolution Scissor Step for it to store under the Grand Design like what you have now. I recommend TorkLift GlowStep Revolution part # TLA8004 for the Grand Design Reflection. Torklift has told us that the TLA8004 replaces the 3 step assembly on the Grand Design campers.

    When using the hand rail part # TLA7621 with a set of Torklift GlowSteps part # TLA7843 mounted to a tailgate you'd have to mount the middle rail of the hand rail to the top of the tailgate so that it matches up when the tailgate is folded down.

    I have a solution for you, but the TorkLift # TLA7843 require much more mounting space than you've got available on your 2020 Palomino SS1240. Because of the limited mounting space under your door, you'll need to use something similar to the TorkLift GlowStep Camper Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear - 4 Steps - 20" Wide # TLA7804-8000, which has a very narrow mounting bracket that is 1" tall x 20" long and will work well in the limited space you've got on your Palomino SS1240 camper.

    While we do not have a video of these steps being specifically installed on your camper I took a look at the instruction manual, which is also linked, and there is a method for installing these steps on a camper that does not have a bumper. You would need to remove your current bracket and it would require a 19.5" x 3.5" mounting area below the door.
