How to Install the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail on a 2007 Starcraft Homestead Lite Fifth Whee


Shane: Hey, guys, Shane here with the etrailer.com. Today I have a 2007 Starcraft Homestead Fifth Wheel Trailer and I want to walk through how to install the Stromberg Carlson 45-inch Folding Handrail.This handrail is going to be a one-inch diameter stainless steel bar. It's going to be 45 inches from the top to bottom with a 45-degree angle slope. The handrail is going to be mainly designed for your fleet RVs for individuals that may have mobility issues, maybe walking up the ramp, getting into the RV, or going up the steps. However, it doesn't necessarily have to be put on a fleet RV. You can see here we have it installed in a camper.

You can see we have plenty of room for anybody who is going from the ground into the camper and out to give them something solid to grab onto so they're stable when walking up and down the stairs.Another really nice feature with this is it's going to come with two keys so you can lock it in a position. So let's say we have it open like this, simply turn the lock and it's going to lock it to keep the handle from being able to be lifted up when either somebody is walking out or walking in the camper. One of the nice features that I really like about this, you'll notice how far this comes down here. Let's say we have some little kids that are getting a little bit better at learning how to walk but not quite good enough to where they're really stable walking up and down the stairs without a rail. You can see it comes down really low so it gives them something to hold onto as they're going up to make sure that they're stable and they don't fall off.Another nice thing is we have all rounded edges, so when anybody's using that, just not kids, we don't have to worry about them jabbing their hands or their arms or anything like that when they're going to grab on to it to help them get in and out of the camper.

The same rail can be folded in three different positions. It is a pretty long handrail, so in my opinion, I probably wouldn't fold it this way, but as you can see it can be folded that way. You can fold that way again here where we're using it or we can turn it and fold it in front of our door. Another nice thing that I really like about it that I would use it for is with that locking feature, when we have it folded against our door, when we're not using our camper, we can lock it and it kind of deters anyone from coming up and trying to move this out and trying to break in our camper.As far as the installation process, it's pretty simple and straightforward. It's going to come with the necessary mounting hardware.

It's also going to come with nice caps to cover up your hardware so we don't have to worry about dirt and debris or water getting in and damaging our hardware or getting into the holes where our hardware is going into the wall. Keep in mind, when mounting this to the wall, you want to make sure it's going into a wall stud because it's going to have a 200-pound weight capacity. You want to make sure it's going to be able to handle that amount of weight.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's walk you through how to get it installed. To start our installation we need to remove our old handrail. The kit is going to come with new mounting hardware.

We're going to line it up. Once you have all your hardware put in place, you're going to have a cap for each one. You're going to slide it over. Then you're going to have a screw that goes right into the bottom to help hold your cap on. Once you have your caps in place, you're ready to go. That's going to do it for a look at and installation on the Stromberg Carlson Folding Handrail on your 2007 Starcraft Homestead Fifth Wheel.
