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.


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".


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?


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.

How Do You Install the Steps?

To install the steps:

  1. Make sure the camper is level on flat ground
  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
  5. Center the steps in the doorframe
  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
  10. Torque the hardware to 25 in-lbs

These steps were purchased to replace a factory set of MorRyde Step Above steps - excellent steps but with a fixed length. The fixed length did not allow us to get inside our trailer inside the storage barn.

The TorkLift steps are more flimsy (they flex) and don't have the side support of the MorRyde steps. The way they mount inside the door is not as robust as the MorRyde steps. To get a comforable angle we have to use the pull out bottom step everywhere we go (improved campgrounds) and those adjustable posts on the front corners will trip you all the time. The "glow" aspect doesn't apply to us because we use covers on the steps which covers them. The grooves in the steps are so aggresive they would grab our dog's claws (we keep them clipped). The big thing, and the reason they're still on, is that I can adjust them in the barn and get into the RV. If the ability to adjust the length wasn't so important I would put the MorRyde steps back on.



The assessment after a year is the same as the first review. The ability to adjust the length of the steps outside the door and get inside the trailer while inside the barn is more important than the other faults.


A big improvement over the MorRyde steps. One improvement that could be made is an easier to use leg let-down mechanism. The release on the legs takes a fairly strong hand to depress the button and another hand to pull the leg down to the next notch. This leaves no hands to lift the steps so the leg can extend an extra bit to accommodate it sinking into the ground a bit when weight is applied. If the leg needs to go down a few inches, it's a tedious process.

My fifth step will not release or the linkage is too tight for it to drop. This is probably an adjustment that I can make.


Very well made steps. Took me about an hour to remove the old Moryde step above steps and install these in their place. Will definitely take care of my clearance issues. The box that the steps came in was decimated but all the parts were there and nothing was bent. Perhaps you could use a heavier cardboard packaging because one of the other channel guys said his packaging was totaled.



Very well. Have performed beautifully. Have been able to adjust to any situation and many that the old Moryde steps would not have worked.


These were a replacement for the Morryde steps, which were just a little to short for my 5th wheel. These steps are great and much more functional than the MorRydes were. Awesome product. Thanks Etrailer!

Fantastically! They were exactly what I needed.


Great product. Fit perfectly and very easy installation. Also, very fast shipping.


We had a set of these on our 2014 KZ Toyhauler and loved them. WE expect the same from these - to be mounted this weekend (Memorial Day weekend)
The only downside was due to the delivery system. We had to send back two sets of 'damaged in transit' sets (broken boxes and pieces hanging out on my front porch). The third time was the charm. Customer service on all of this was EXEMPLARY!! Every one spoken to and emailed back & forth was exceedingly pleasant and knowledgeable to deal with.


One of the better accessories we've added to the trailer. Makes life easy unwinding and rewinding the bulky 50a cord. Easy it !


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


We bought Torklift Glowstep Revolution steps from for our previous 2016 Rockwood 8329SS, which had a stepwell. We have now traded for a 2019 Flagstaff 8321KBS (Forest River twins: same trailers and floorplan, made in same factory, different brand names, which doesn't have a stepwell to mount the Glowstep Revolution steps, so we had to order the Glowstep Revolution UPRISING steps for the Flagstaff, also from etrailer. The Flagstaff came factory equipped with the swing-out SolidSteps that fold upwards into the doorway, and there isn't room in our RV garage to open these steps. The Torklift Glowstep Revolution UPRISING steps were our only option if we wanted to gain access to the interior of our trailer while in the garage. Unlike the Rockwood, we had no stepwell in which to install the Glowstep Revolution steps, as we installed on the Rockwood. Like the Lippert Solidsteps, they also swing up to store upside down inside the doorway, but the folded stack of 5 steps is only about 2 feet high when folded and stored inside. Torklift Glowsteps can be used to gain access into a travel trailer in any "tight" place. They can be extended straight down and used like a ladder, if need be. I have disabilities, but the UPRISING steps were easier for me to install, because all the work was at waist level, instead of under the stepwell. The steps attach to the trailer doorframe with 6 bolts. You do have to do some precise measuring before you drill those 6 holes. It was tedious work to mark the holes, but not difficult. The UPRISING steps have a "booster" step under the bottom step that will fold out if the terrain surrounding the trailer is lower than the surface the wheels are parked on, and we have camped in sites that did require folding out the "booster" (5th) step, making a separate 4-legged platform unnecessary. All in all, we like the UPRISING steps just as much or better than the regular Torklift Glowstep Revolution steps that store in a stepwell. At 70 and 71, with my wife's "trick" hip and my "bum" knees, the 7 1/2-inch rise of Torklift's "scissoring" steps make it MUCH easier for us to get into and out of our RV than SolidSteps, Step Above, or factory hanging steps. Don't be worried about any minor 'flexing" of the steps when using them. You don't feel it, and Torklift has been making these steps for truck campers for a long, long time. However, we will be purchasing the Torklift "quick-connect" railing system soon. I am taller than my wife, and have little balance problems with them at this time, but with the 5th "booster" step deployed, my wife feels she may lose her balance if she doesn't go slowly and hang on to the door. It IS a "long way" to the ground when the "booster" step is deployed, and just this elevation can make some people feel uneasy without a railing for "reassurance". Even if we didn't have the clearance problem with the SolidSteps or Step Above steps in our garage, we still prefer the Torklft Glowsteps because of the reduced "rise" between steps. Family members have both of the other "swing-out" steps on their RVs, and it is MUCH harder for us to climb OR descend the others. The Glowsteps are somewhat more expensive than the others (the others don't FOLD), but we have NO regrets about the cost. Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of the installation at this time. We have been working on "personalizing" this new trailer to the extent that we had done on the 2016, and we have been busy! lol


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.



My Torklift stairs remains the best purchase I’ve made for my Solitude. No matter where we stop these conform to every situation.


The package was not in the best shape upon arrival, but the steps appear to be unharmed. The installation instructions were laid out nicely and very clear.


The steps worked great. Good concept but unfortunately my wife could not raise them up by herself so we had to go back to the strut assisted steps that came with our RV.


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.)


Awesome steps. Easy install and easy to use. Very sturdy.



These steps are awesome. Exactly what we were looking for. Well built.





The OEM steps on our trailer developed a crack in the mounting bracket and had to be replaced. These steps are an outstanding because of the accordion design. This allows us to park our trailer in storage and still open the steps to get inside with only a small amount of clearance, between the trailer and the wall. At the bottom the step legs have a lot of adjustability for uneven ground or slope. If I had one critique it would be that sometimes the push buttons on those step legs are a little hard to push, while you are holding the steps up to get them adjusted to match the ground.


These steps have worked out well. We stayed in campsites in all conditions and were always able to get the steps level and stable due to the ease of adjustment. Would definitely buy again Etrailer is always a great place to shop.


Simple to install and love the lower rise height. Did have to do a little dremel work on a slooooopy weld that kept the stairs from deploying. Very pleased, now to see how well they "ride" inside. Great replacement for my Lippert Solid 2 step.


This is my second experience with the glowstep, first on our travel trailer and now on our Alliance 5th wheel. Before I installed the glowstep, we were having trouble with the solid step (installed at the factory) interfering with the door closing. Now, problem solved, door works as it should. Easy to adjust for unlevel terrain also.


I used these steps to replace the solid steps that came with our fifth wheel. The version of solid steps we had did not have a hydraulic lift kit available at the time and it was almost impossible for my wife to lower them. These were easy to install and now everyone can lower or raise them, since they are a lot more manageable. They can be used in tight areas like our storage lot or rest areas. Also I leave them out while hitching up, since they have enough play to raise and lower without binding (Not sure if that is a recommend use). I have had them for a year now with no issues or regrets.


These stairs are a great upgrade over the factory floating style stair. The installation was very easy and took less than hour including time to get tools out and put them away. The steps easily fold in and out and have smooth operation.

My trailer was towards the upper end of the 4 step height range, time will tell if they are tall enough or if I should of gone with the 5 step version.
As a note the box used to ship the stairs was not up to the task and arrived heavily damaged. The box had no reinforced corners and the stairs were just wrapped with some paper. Luckily they arrived undamaged.


Easy to install. Just make sure if you have any drawers by the doorway, clear the lift brackets. I had to trim my cabinet drawer, which was no big deal.
Steps work great. Entry is a breeze.


We LOVE our TorkLift Revolution steps. Our New Horizons fifth wheel sits pretty high off the ground, and having the Booster Step on the 5-step model has been great. We use that extra step more often than not. The steps are easy to pull out and put back in. And the glow squares are great when we're camping in a "Dark Sky" location. They're unobtrusive, but help us find our way in the dark. We have two of these, one for each entry door on our toyhauler. We've also used them like a ladder when stopping in tight places or on the side of the road where it slopes away too fast to put the stairs out. Very versatile and well-made, we highly recommend. In the photos, the back door has the 24" steps with the extra step not in use, and the front door (side with awnings) has the 28" steps with the extra step extended.

    In order for the bracket of the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps # TLA9005 that you referenced to fit the door sill the height does need to be between 5/8 inch and 3/4 inch to allow the door to still close over it. So if you can use a spacer like you mentioned to raise your height to fit that range then this will fit well in this regard as well as as the threshold height dimension you mentioned.
