Review and How to Install the Lippert SolidStep Locking RV Storage Box


Jake: Hey guys, it's Jake here with etrailer. Today we're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to show you how to install this storage box by SolidStep. It's going to install where your factory steps from your RV used to be before you got your SolidStep. With this box you're going to be able to lock it up, so it's going to keep any of the contents on the inside safe from anybody else. With a simple push of a button, you can see it's going to be spring loaded latch, so that you can open it up and load any type of wheel chocks or if you have any other gear to help you get your landing gear in place, this will be a great location for it, because you'll know it'll always be in this compartment. And then to close it up, simply push it close and set the latch.The storage box is going to have a heavy steel construction with a nice black powder coat finish to be able to resist rust and corrosion.

And one thing I like is it's extremely easy to use. As long as it's unlocked, you push that button, the latch pops out and you can load anything in it. Now this box is going to have a hundred pound weight capacity, so you can see as much space as we have, you're going to be able to load it pretty well to the max before you hit that limit. On the inside of our door, you're going to see there is a weatherstripping. That's going to help to resist any water or dirt and debris from getting inside our box.The box dimensions are going to be 27-1/4" long and 11-5/16" wide.Here's a quick demonstration on how they're designed to work with your SolidSteps.

It is going to be a flush mount design, so it's going to sit back where your old steps used to be. So when you open up your SolidSteps, simply pull down your steps, set them in place, and it's not going to interfere and it's going to be hidden back behind your steps. Then to replace your steps, you just simply lift them back up into place, load up your box and you're ready to hit the road.Now that we've gone over some of those cool features, let's go ahead and show you how easy it is to get installed. To start our install, we're going to need to get our bracket in place. Now in order to install this toolbox in the side of your camper, you're going to have to remove your factory steps.

So if you don't have a set of SolidSteps or if you do and you just never took your factory steps out, you're going to need you to remove those. Then you're going to have to figure out via your specific set of steps, the opening may be different from ours here, but we went from the bottom of our I beam one inch up to make sure that our storage compartment is level. Now we're going to take our plate, line it up with our holes. We put some markings where our holes are so that all we have to do is just line the holes up. Now we'll take our self tapping screw that's included in your hardware and lag it to the frame.Now we'll do the same for the other six holes.

On the back of your box, you're going to have these two tabs which are going to hook into the bracket and hold on so that you can get your four screws in the back of your box. These are the two slots in which those tabs are gonna hook into. So now we can go ahead and set our box in place.Now since the box does have a significant weight to itself, it's a lot easier if you sit around in a little chair and lift it in place. And what you can do is you can push on this button opening your latch and let your door down. Now you're going to locate the four holes to insert your bolts. You'll see here our bolt holes are not lined up exactly. So we'll have to scoot our box over till they are. And we can take our included hardware with our locking washer and thread it on.With your four screws safely securing your box to the inside, you're ready to load it up with some tools or accessories, close it up, latch it, and hit the road.Well guys, with all that being said, that's going to do it for our look and installation of the SolidStep RV Locking Storage Box.
