Will Torklift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps Work for You?

Fold-down steps are typically installed on travel trailers and some RVs. The fold-down steps from Torklift lift up to latch into your camper's doorway for storage. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.


Uprising

The Torklift revolution Uprising Steps install inside your camper's doorframe. Measuring for this may seem tricky, but once you know what to look for, figuring out the right fit for your RV doorway is easy.


First, you will need to measure the doorsill plate, both the height and the clearance between it and the bottom of the door. For the Revolution Uprising steps to fit, the doorsill height should be between 5/8" and 3/4", and the clearance should be at least 3/8".


Torklift

Next measure between the door frame flanges - the doorway width - to determine the step size that will fit into your camper's doorway. You will need a doorway that is at least 28" wide for these steps to work.


If it turns out you have a narrower doorway, there are smaller step assemblies available that fit 24" wide doorways. A full list of the available steps is below.


The doorway threshold will be used as the "mounting point" to determine how many steps you will need.


How Many Steps Do You Need?

Uprising

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 measurement ranges in the first column. If you determined you need a mounting bracket that fits a 24" doorway, the step part numbers with that width are in the second column. If you determined you need a bracket that fits a 28" doorway, the step part numbers with that width are in the third column. Choose the doorway width that is closest to your measurements without going over.

  2. Place the mounting bracket into the camper doorway
  3. Extend until feet touch the ground
  4. Attach the door brackets to the main mounting bracket with the included hardware

  6. Slide assembly forward until the two door brackets touch the inside of the doorframe

    -Make sure the brackets are flush against the doorframe and the floor

  7. Drill holes through both sides of the doorframe
  8. Secure the door brackets to the doorframe and the floor with included hardware
  9. Push the main bracket forward until the vertical piece makes contact with the threshold

Video Transcript for TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps Review

Shane: Hey everyone, Shane here with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a look at the Torklift GlowStep Revolution Uprising. What would be the reason we'd want to add different steps to our camper Well, if we come down here and we take a look at the steps that normally come on your campers, steel construction and they tend to rush fairly quick so they become hard to put in and out. Plus they're floating steps, so there's nothing touching the ground. So when we walk on these, there's not a whole lot of stability there and you can see, they kind of move around. Plus if you're inside the camper sleeping and you come out at night or somebody's sleeping, you go to walk in, you're shaking the camper around.With the Torklift steps, you can see they're going to fold...

These are going to fold inside the door so once we leave, close our door, our steps stay inside, we don't have to worry about them staying outside in the weather. But they're easy to fold out, we simply fold them down. We'll grab this lower bar, I'm going to pull them out like this, we can adjust our feet and then we're ready to go. And you can see these are a lot more stable than our free-hanging steps. These are going to have a 325 pound weight capacity, they're going to be aluminum construction so we don't have to worry about the rust and corrosion.

All of our hinges, hardware, our hardware is going to be a stainless steel construction. Again, we don't have to worry about rust and corrosion or anything like that.I mentioned the GlowSteps, they're going to have a sticker that runs down each step down. Now, five minutes of direct light will give you 10 hours of glow. So you can see with all of our lights off, each one of our steps has a glow sticker on it that help when walking in at night. These are going to be a scissor style, so you'll notice we have three hinge points and what that allows us to do, is it allows us to fold up our steps into a nice compact space.

So it's not a whole lot of room that it would be taking up, it makes it easy to pull out and to push back in. Unlike some of the other steps where, on the factory steps that come out, once you get your second step in there it might be hard to lift up those two steps to slide them in place. Where with these being aluminum, they're nice and lightweight, we don't have to worry about all that extra weight.Let's say we parked somewhere and we have a little unlevel terrain. Each leg is going to have 12 holes that allows us to adjust this leg in one inch increments. The footpad on the bottom, now you can see a nice wide base so it gives us plenty of stability once they're on the ground.

But it has four rubber pads, so it gives us a nice grip when it's down. And this is actually the four step design. So you're probably asking yourself, "Well, if it's a four step design, what's the extra step" They actually call this a booster step. So what you would do is there's a lever down here that locks it and you slide it over. And this allows you to extend the steps out farther, or even to give you a little bit more height for ground that may be a little bit lower, different terrain levels.And this bottom step is a little bit closer to the ground for somebody that may have a problem actually stepping up higher. Now, if I didn't mentioned this before, these steps, these are the 28 inch wide ones and that's this inside bracket. Our step is actually going to be eight inches by 22 and a half inches, each one is going to have raised corrugation almost on it, to provide tread if your steps are wet. We'll come up here to this bracket and you'll notice it wraps all the way down, this is to provide support. So if you're walking up here and you happen to maybe step a little bit forward, you don't have to worry about your foot sliding in there. So it gives you plenty of protection there.We're going to have a nice grip here so when we're stepping up here with this being a metal surface, if it gets wet, obviously it's going to be slick. So having the grip tape there, we can step on it and we're not going to have to worry about sliding. Now being 28 inches, that's this bracket right here, inside edge to inside edge of this bracket is going to be 28 inches. And how you measure that is this flange on your doorframe, inside edge to inside edge. So that's what you need to measure to get the correct size steps, correct width steps. And then you want to take a measurement from the ground to the top of your sill plate right here. So you can see what we're measuring, we're measuring inside of that lip and we're at 28 inches. So, that's the measurement you need to give you the correct steps.Now to measure your height, you're going to measure from the ground to the top edge of your threshold right there. And these steps are going to fit 34 and seven eighths up to 42 and three eighths distance there. As I mentioned, these are very easy to fold back up into place, we're simply going to lift them up. If you have your booster step out, there's a lever down here on the bottom, you're going to push it over, fold it up into place, and you're going to rotate them right inside the door just like that. Now let's say you wanted to take these out for some reason. These are actually not bolted in place so they're very simple to get out. You're going to fold them up like this, we're going to rotate them back just a little, we're going to lift, and they come out fairly easy.Maybe you're asking yourself, "Well, if they're not actually attached to anything, how they keep from bouncing around inside the camper when you're going down the road" Well, right on the inside here on this bracket, there are rubber boots. What they do is they sit against the plate right here. When you're installing it, close your screen door and you push the steps up against your screen door. You can see these rubber pads here, push it up against the screen door, you adjust those boots up against this plate. When you close your screen door, it keeps this solid against it so we don't have any movement out of the steps. Let's say we have our camper parked where we park it for the winter, for the off season. We park it in a lot and we have to get up close to another camper, or they parked them close or tight.Let's say we have to get something. Maybe we come back in the middle of the winter and we need to get something out of the camper, for the solid step or the MORryde step, they actually come up in here so when you fold them out, they fold out like this. So if you're parked close to someone, you're not getting your steps out. So that means if you don't have a second door, you're not going to be able to get in your camper. With these, we can basically pull them straight out and pull them straight down to the ground to get in our camper if we need to get anything. Now, keep in mind with them set up like this, this is just temporary. You don't want to actually use them like this consistently but again, this allows you to get into a tight space if you need to get inside your camper or RV to get something that you may have forgot.Another thing I like about these steps is they, you can also get hand railings and you can find those here at etrailer. The railing would go from the bottom up to the top, it mounts to the side of your camper to give you a little extra stability when walking in and out of the camper. The other thing they offer is if you have pets, a lot of times if you have steps that are open, a dog will get nervous about going up the steps because they can see through it and they're worried about falling through. Well, Torklift makes a cover that has hook and loop fastener, and it basically mounts to the backside lip of your step and provides them with a cover so they can't see through. They feel a lot safer when they're going in and out.Another thing that they make, now this is a really neat thing. This is the shoe scrubber and where this mounts, it mounts right to the side of the step and you basically just set it down on there. Put it right on the bracket and it allows you to clean off your shoes, boots, whatever it may be, before you walk up your steps into your camper so you're leaving all the dirt and debris out here and not dragging it inside.Now we didn't remove this customer's steps, or the factory steps that came on the camper because they're actually welded in. If you have welded in steps and you want to remove them, or if you have bolt in steps and you want to remove those, you can find storage boxes that will fill this space, and you can find those here at etrailer, to give you a little extra storage for any of those other items that you may want to bring with you. As far as the installation process, the installation process is pretty simple and straightforward. You're going to have a bracket here that basically spans from one side to the other side of the doorframe. It's going to fit on the inside and you can see this lip, it actually is going to get bolted through that. So other than that, that is really the only thing you have to install other than setting the steps into place. That's going to do for the look at the Torklift GlowStep Revolution Uprising.

Glad I got rid of my Step Above!!!!

This is one of the best products I’ve purchased. I replaced my Step-Above steps (<1 year old) with Torklift because of weight and ease of use...the coach parked next to me in storage never allowed enough room without pulling out my Solitude when gaining access. The install was a snap it took less than and hour with my buddy Tom. Matt at etrailor was top notch and helped coordinate the delivery while we were on the road. Five star rating for service, product and installation.

Just finished the installation. I replaced Mor-Ryde steps, which came stock in our Grand Design. The original steps are good, but we had Torkilifts on out prior camper and really liked them. They are sturdy and the level of the camper is not an issue anymore when wanting to open the camper door wit the Mor-Ryde steps. Definitely would recommend. (They are pricey, but it is a quality item.)

Ask the Experts about this TorkLift RV and Camper Steps

  • Replacement Steps for Seasonal 5th Wheel with Door 38 Off Ground
    I have a solution for you, but as far as porch style trailer steps go, the Econo Porch Trailer Step with Handrail # EHS-103-R is going to be the tallest step we have available. I recommend going with the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution # TLA9005 . These steps can be used for entries 34-7/8" to 42-3/8" and the steps have a rise/drop of 7-1/2" which is going to keep you from having to step up too high/too far down at any point. They easily pull out from the trailer and the scissor design...

  • Quick Release Hinge For Lippert Manual Fold Down Steps
    I spoke with Lippert and they confirmed that SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps for 29" to 36" Wide RV Door Frames # LC791575 does not have a quick hinge function, just manual fold down and raise up. We do offer the Torklift GlowStep Revolution # TLA9005 that is a scissor style design made to fit and be used in small or tight paces. This product also extends to reveal a 5th step for use and fits doorways 28" wide. We do carry the detachable quick hinge kit for Morryde first generation...

  • Need Fold-In Style Steps for Trailer With Narrow Storage Space to Deploy
    Yes the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps, # TLA9004 has a booster/bonus step intended for use when needed. This is a three steep model intended for an entry height of 27-3/8" to 34-7/8" with 28" doorways. If you will need the 4th step regularly because of threshold height, it is suggest that you select the four step model, # TLA9005. This too will have that additional booster/bonus step as well as landing gear that creates a stable connection from the bottom step to the ground.
