We needed some kind of a step for using the racks on top of our teardrop camper. The camper has 15" wheels. Tried various stools, sometimes they sunk into the ground, and some broke, none were satisfactory. The camper has tight fenders and I knew this Hitchmate TireStep would need a custom fit of some kind. Synopsis: Replaced the 10mm bolts and wing nuts for mounting the step with 3/8" pins that have the wire strap retainers (3/8" Wire Lock Pins with the thumb tab) which snap onto the pins to lock them secure. Worked great. Lowes, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, and others have these pins. The universal clevis pins that use cotter pins or clips to retain them could also be used. But then you have additional small parts that are easy to lose. Drilled and deburred additional 5/16" holes (original holes are a little bigger, but 5/16" worked good) in the supports where the supports fit the elongated U that rests on the tire -- so as to fit a tire not so wide as an SUV tire. Worked great. Last hole was close to the weld. Used a bench drill press and small vice, not a hand drill motor. Careful layout. Later I drilled just one last hole near the weld on the side with no holes -- so you only have to snap it once. Just change the supports side to side. To assemble the step lay the elongated U on the tire by starting low on one side and work it up to level position under the fender, rest it on the tire. You have to crouch down or kneel to do this. It would not fit going straight in, no way close. Then snap in the long, vertical step supports, one side at a time, to the elongated U for a tight fit to the outside of the tire. Position the step approximately on the long supports with one hand, install the pins with the other hand, and then lock the wire retainer straps to the pins. If you want to change the height, the pins make it easy to do so. Much easier now to throw a kayak on top the camper and secure it. Sorry, I'm old, long retired, and techy challenged, no photos. Summary: very, very happy. This tire step is the best solution for our problem. Of course with the modifications I'm sure the warranty is voided. I don't care, this thing is really solid. Super happy, as always, with eTrailer. 580017

The Hitchmate tire step arrived in excellent condition and works very well, accommodating my 250# w/o a groan. As per the picture, it also seems to work as an auxiliary table on my RV trailer! Kudos to ETrailer for the fast shipment and excellent pricing. 45441

Excellent!! I purchased the tirestep to more easily access the 5th wheel hitch in the truck bed. When hitching and unhitching I always needed to stand on the top of the tire to reach it. Being a Silverado 3500 dually it was a huge step. Considered other options but this was the most economical and placed the step in the exact location I needed it. The hitchstep easily fit my 17" tires without any adjustment. The product has no problem handling my weight and is simple to use. Unfold it, place it over the tire and step up. The product is great quality and useful for accessing things in a truck bed from the side. I'm glad I purchased it. 122060

2019 f350 out of the box fit. Works great when pulling pin on fifth wheel hitch. Quick on delivery from Etrailer. 594696



- HE4040
by:

Does the job as advertised. Useful to reach top of camper shell to adjust/install roof rack and rack accessories; also to reach windshield of truck for cleaning. Be careful not to pinch your fingers when setting it up and taking it down. Extends your reach, but only from the tires it may be installed on. It is heavy and bulky, but comes with a convenient storage case. Suggestion to manufacturer: include a "flag" for user to place on the steering wheel of the vehicle to warn driver that the TireStep is installed: "CAUTION-Remove TireStep Before moving vehicle!" 593726

This step works really well for me. I used to keep a 4 ft aluminum ladder in the bed of my truck behind the fifth wheel hitch. Of course it took up some space and to get to it the tailgate had to be opened. With this step I keep it in the toolbox where it belongs and it doesn't take up much space. It works well over the ladder. I'm able to reach the hitch to pin, unpin, lock, and unlock. I highly recommend it. 566680

I was hoping to use this to reach the roof rack on my Honda CR-V. The wheel well is just a bit too narrow to accommodate this product. No problem, it fits perfectly on my Tacoma truck and will receive a lot of use on that vehicle. The wheel step fits perfectly over the tire and provides a safe and secure platform. 526283

I've had one of these in the past and seem to have lost it, however, I've looked this one over and it appears to be well built. I purchased this to help in working in the engine compartment where you need a step up to safely work the area, stools/small step ladders are not stationary enough to be safe. Both men and women need one of these to work on cars, trucks and RV's. I recommend one to all as not everyone is over 5 ft 9 inches tall or more. 202840

Heavy duty; definitely solid construction. Giving it 3/5 as it is an adjustable step; however, it requires practically taking it apart to move the step or the arm. Also, the step does not fit in the provided bag when adjusted. 178504

This tire step is just what I have been looking for. I have seen them on many web site but no one had the right information on what size wheel/tire that it would fit the people at eTrail had the right information. The other sites and people that I had talked to didn't know much about this step. I bought 2 one for a gift for a 1 Ton Dually with 17" wheels and LT 235x 85 R 17 that will adjust and one for myself a1ton Dually with 16" wheel LT 215x 85 R 16 and they are great for cleaning your hood to reaching my 5th wheel pin must buy! 163897

TireStep worked straight out of the box. Just had to adjust for tire size and I can now reach my fifth wheel hitch. I like that it comes with a zippered storage bag so it doesn't rattle around in the truck. The step is painted black so it blends in with the tire which could create a problem.The only thing I will do is put some fluorescent tape on the step so I remember to remove it before I move the truck. 16025

  • Largest Yakima Skybox Roof Cargo Box for 2011 Yukon Denali for Transporting Skis
  • Thank you for the photo of the roof rack on your 2011 GMC Yukon Denali. These elliptical-shape bars will work great with the Yakima Skybox 21 rooftop cargo box # Y07337 so long as their size does not exceed 3-1/2-inches wide x 1-11/16-inches tall and so long as they can be positioned apart between 24- and 42-inches (measured from the center of one bar to the center of the other). The rear hatch will be able to open fully without interference with the box so long as you have at least...

  • Will HitchMate TireStep # HE4040 Fit 2019 Honda CR-V
  • The HitchMate TireStep Adjustable Step # HE4040 that you referenced will fit your 2019 Honda CR-V with tire size 235/60-18. While this didn't work for a 2004 model it will work on a 2019 as the tire size on your vehicle is larger and the wheel well area is also larger.

  • Tire Step Recommendation to Make Accessing Roof Cargo Basket Easier
  • I think the best solution we can provide would be a step that attaches to the tires of your vehicle to give you a boost in height. For that we have the HitchMate # HE4040 which would be a great option. I attached a picture and install video down below for you to check out. I wish there was a way to use the folding ladder # RRRFL that you mentioned on a factory roof rack but it's not rated for that so we can't say for certain if it would fit without issue.

  • Recommended Tire Step For Increased Height When Loading And Unloading
  • I recommend the HitchMate TireStep Adjustable Step for SUVs, RVs and Light Trucks - 22" x 10" - 400 lbs, # HE4040 over the Powerbuilt Adjustable Tire Step for SUVs, RVs, and Trucks - 300 lbs # ALL647596. I prefer the HitchMate because the actual step is 3 inches deeper and that gives a little more support. The weight rating is 100 lbs more which makes it feel stonger, and it comes with a bag to store or carry it.

This is our most popular selling roof cargo basket. Your crossbars also need to be adjusted to accommodate the proper mounting location for the cargo carrier on the your crossbars. The crossbar spreads that are required for this cargo basket are: 26-1/4 inches, 30 inches, 33-3/4 inches, or...

  • Saddle Style Kayak Carrier for Hobie Pro Angler Kayak
  • First, I recommend checking the weight capacity of your vehicle's roof as well as the weight capacity of the crossbars on your roof. Most vehicle roofs do not have a very high weight capacity. This information will likely be located in your owner's manual. The weight capacity of a roof rack will vary by manufacturer as well as make and model of vehicle. I spoke with my contact at SportRack about using the Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # SR5512 for your Hobie Pro Angler. Though most saddle...

I recommend taking a quick measurement to just to make sure that the cargo box will not interfere with opening your hatch.

When loading a cargo bag such as # CG-13 you will want to place the heaviest items at the bottom. I would not put any more than 100 pounds in the bag, even if the roof was rated higher. The bag will work well to keep out water but there is always the chance that water could get in. We always recommend putting items that can't get...

No cargo bag is waterproof because to be considered waterproof the bag would have to be able to be submerged under water for a certain amount of time and remain dry inside. Bags are weather resistant and would not let rain in. Regardless of the weather resistance we still recommend putting items that cannot get wet in plastic containers just to be safe. Yakima bag...

This cargo box should work very well for you and will attach and remove very easily.

I have linked you to an install video showing the FrontLoader being installed on an older 3rd generation RAV4. In case your riding partner is not tall like Sasquatch, we offer a tire step part # HE4040 that would make accessing the roof much easier.

If your CRV has the flush mount side rails you will want the foot pack # TH460R, with the fit kit # THKIT3118.

Please note that the minimum crossbar spread for this carrier is 24 inches.

  • Roof Rack and Largest Capacity Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2005 Honda Odyssey
  • You are correct that you will need a crossbar system to mount your roof-top cargo carrier. For a cargo carrier your most aerodynamic and weather proof option is to use a cargo box. For a set of cross bars for your 2005 Honda Oddesy I recommend the Thule Aeroblade Edge Roof Rack System. These aeroblade bars are designed to be a quieter and more aerodynamic option. With a lower profile and less overhang from the existing rails on your Odyssey this will be the quietest and sleekest design...

  • Roof Mounted Cargo Bag for 2007 Honda CR-V with Roof Rack and Crossbars
  • Ideally, you would want to choose a cargo bag that will fit in between the crossbars on your CR-V and sit flat on the vehicle roof. However, since all of the cargo bags we offer in the 12-15 cubic foot capacity would be too long to fit in between, you can have the bag sit behind the front crossbar and overlap the rear, if you wish. With a soft sided bag your best option would be to have the bag sit on a cargo basket like part # C18115. The basket would provide a flat and stable mounting...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier to Haul 2 Kayaks on a 2014 Nissan Xterra
  • To carry 2 kayaks on the roof rack of your 2014 Nissan Xterra Pro 4x I recommend using the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04073. The J-style carrier will adjust so you can carry 1 or 2 kayaks and has a minimum crossbar spread requirement of 24 inches. It is also made to fit Aero, most factory, round, square, and elliptical styles of crossbars. To add some security to your setup I recommend using the Yakima Same Key System Lock Cores # Y07202 which will allow you to lock...

  • Recommended Cargo Box For 2012 Dodge Durango With Factory Roof Rack
  • I did some research on your 2012 Dodge Durango with the stowable rack system installed. Per the owners manual the maximum weight capacity of the system is 150 lbs. That would include the weight of any roof top cargo carrier along with the enclosed cargo. You will want to check with your dealership or your owners manual to make certain you do not exceed the roof weight capacity of your Durango. I was unable to find the crossbar spread in the owners manual, I did find some online conversations...

  • Roof Rack and Box Recommendation for Blacked Out 2015 Dodge Durango RT
  • I have included a link to the roof racks that are available for your 2015 Dodge Durango RT. One of my personal favorites is the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack, # RRRS540B. This rack is aerodynamic, all black, and looks as though it was from the factory so it will look great on your Durango. Now for a cargo box that won't interfere with the opening of your hatch. To determine which box will work for you, a couple of measurements will need to be made. First, you will need to measure 3-5/16...

  • Will SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 Fit on 2011 Subaru Outback
  • In order for the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box, # SR7018, to fit on your 2011 Subaru Outback, the crossbars must have a spread of either 25-7/8 inches, 27-7/8 inches, or 29-7/8 inches. This cargo box will work with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. To ensure your rear hatch is able to fully open when the cargo box is mounted, you will want to measure the distance from the center of your front crossbar to the rear hatch seam. If your front crossbar is adjustable,...

  • Yakima SkyBox Cargo Box Compatible with 2011 Toyota Sienna with a Spoiler
  • The best way to determine which size cargo box will fit on your vehicle without interference with the rear hatch or spoiler interfering would be to take a few quick meaurements. I have included a diagram that shows the measurements that Yakima provides to determine hatch interference on your vehicle.
