TLI Hershey Blog 3Just like how ice cream brings a smile to your face when it’s still ice cold on a hot summer afternoon, we designed a high-quality step system made right here in America that will do the same. With 7-inches of vertical elevation adjustment, these steps are easy on the knees and back, have unparalleled stability by eliminating the unsafe diving board effect, don’t require you to lift them over your head for storage and install in your factory step opening – keeping the interior of your trailer dirt and debris free.

What is happening at the Heartland Owners rally?

On June 13-18, at the County Fair Grounds, in Elkhart the 2017 North American Heartland Owners Rally will take place. This rally is for anyone who owns a Heartland RV, and is a paid member of the Heartland Owners Club. With an expectancy of more than 550 people, we are all looking forward to seeing the latest and greatest from Heartland.

What kind of units can you expect to see at the rally?
With anywhere from 275- 300 units to be present, there will be a wide variety of Heartland RVs and fifth wheels. You can expect large groups of Bighorn, Big Country and Landmarks. As an RV enthusiast like many of you reading this we are all excited to see the latest from Heartland. Big Country's new 3560 SS is going to be something we are hoping to see. Coming in at 13’3” feet tall, 40.7 feet long, and 8 feet wide, it has the ability to sleep four people. This Big Country offers a master suite (queen standard, king optional) and a full bath with many other options available like a fire place or theater seats. Another unit we are hoping to see is 3575 Elite designed by Big Horn. It’s 8 feet wide, 13’3 feet tall and 39’4 feet long and able to sleep four people. This RV has standard hand crafted cabinetry with Amish-crafted natural hardwood cabinet doors with hidden hinges and drawers. With an optional electric fireplace, large four door refrigerator, or a programmable safe, this RV is the top of the line.

Will Torklift be there?
Heartland Blog 1We wouldn’t miss it! Our very own Kyle Bonita will be there giving a demonstration of our GlowStep Revolution. He will be comparing a factory step to the GlowStep Revolution and all of the features it has to offer. We are hoping to see Heartland family member Kelly Barnett, owner of a Landmark Key Largo who loves our GlowStep Revolution. She personally wrote a article to Heartland that was posted on their Heartlands’ blogs and event page, about the replacement of her factory steps and installation of our GlowStep Revolution and what difference it has made to her:

A quote directly from her write-up is, “There is a major difference in the stability of the old steps and the new. Walking up and down the steps there is no ‘give’ because the steps are supported by the legs that rest upon the ground and don’t just hang freely in the air. The GlowStep Revolution makes you feel more safe and secure while going up and down the steps.”

Another Heartland owners club member we are looking forward to see is user Coram8. He posted on the forum with a couple questions and concerns, and was wondering if the GlowStep Revolution would solve these issues. Our steps have a weight capacity of 375 pounds, so there is more than enough support. As far as the clearance between the ground and the first step on your 

RV steps Torklift’s GlowStep Revolution is your solution! Our steps connect to the RV and directly to the ground eliminating the unstable and unsafe diving board feeling. We have also designed an accessory called SafeSteps that may benefit you as well! This is a protective panel that creates a vertical barrier closing the gap between the steps to prevent your children or pets from falling between the steps. Check out this GlowStep Revolution thread on the Heartland Owners Club member forum at Heartlandowners.org.

Gimme my GlowStep Revolution- find out how to get one free
Heartland Owners Club member Avviclif was wondering if Torklift was going to have any rally specials, and with a lot of excitement about our GlowStep Revolution Torklift will be running a promotion this year. For this rally, attendees must post a photo of their current steps on our Facebook page using the caption, “Gimme my GlowStep Revolution!” with #Torklift in order to be entered to win. The rally director will choose and announce the winner of a free set of GlowStep Revolution steps. Let’s see your steps! Check out Avviclif’s post on the 2017 Goshen Rally- Vendor Specials thread.

We have two winners for the #RVStepFail Drawing!!

RVStepFailSince January, we have been having the #RVStepFail contest where people shared their stories and photos about their unreliable or unsafe RV steps. Factory RV steps are notorious for needing modification: the RV steps are too high or too shaky, they can’t easily accommodate uneven ground and the surface area is always too small. Complaints about RV steps are as numerous as the way folks have tried to fix them —with stool legs, concrete blocks, wooden platforms, RV booster step, and makeshift handrails.


The drawing ended May 25, 2016 and the winners of the drawing were Doug Metcalfe and Steve Murray! With an overwhelming amount of entries, we decided to draw not one, but two winners! Below you can see their #RVStepFail entries.

Would be perfect for our dog…
Here is the story the Steve Murray shared with us in his submission:

“We have a tall 5th wheeler. It has only 3 steps and our older dog is unable to do them due to steepness. A set of the GlowStep Revolution steps would be great to help him get in and out of the 5th wheeler easier.” 

Steve Murray

One small step for me; one giant step for the wife….
Here’s the story that Doug Metcalfe shared with us in his #RVStepFail submission:

“One small step for me; one giant step for the wife! I was reading a year-old issue of Trailer Life Magazine last night and saw your ad for the steps. This is the first time that I have gone online to your website.

You guys keep coming up with new products that are the best that can be bought!

In Feb. 1997, I ordered both the Dodge RAM and a Bigfoot 10.6 basement camper as our pre-retirement package. Because of the extra height, the camper came with 5 steps made by a small company in Kelowna, B.C. From day 1- no matter how I stretched, leveled, or set those steps, every one was at a different angle. I contacted the builder, and he sent me an upgrade at no additional charge. All of the side pieces are made in the same jig, and there was no improvement. A local RV supply business said that they had seen this before; and they were made wrong. I am better at math than most, and following the basic laws of trig, I can't see what's wrong (equal sides yield equal angles). Only the middle step is level- each step up ore down is off by about 5-10 degrees, compounded with each step. The top one is like a ski jump, and the bottom one is an ankle buster. To make things even worse, every pivot is a fully threaded 1/4" coarse thread grade 5 bolt. At least three of these have snapped over the years.

My wife is afraid to continue to use these steps. According to the license tabs, it hasn't moved since 2008. By chance I met an identical owner at Fred Meyer in Yakima last year; same brand of steps on his newer Bigfoot- SAME PROBLEM. It sounds like you guys have made something that will really improve our situation.” 

Doug Metcalfe

Congratulations Doug and Steve! Thank you to everyone that entered your submissions for #RVStepFail, we really appreciate the stories you’ve shared with us.

What Steve is Winning
Steve will be winning the GlowStep Revolution for his 5th wheel and will get the 7” of vertical precision elevation adjustment. This feature will help his dog enter and exit the 5th wheel with ease since it connects to ground level. The GlowStep Revolution step system is unparalleled in stability and eliminates the unsafe diving board effect so Steve’s dog and entire family will feel much safer when entering and exiting the RV.

All Terrain Landing GearThe All Terrain Landing Gear for the GlowStep

What Doug is Winning
Instead of having to deal with his terrible factory RV steps, Doug won a set of GlowSteps and All Terrain Landing Gear for his Bigfoot truck camper application. This combination is the best step configuration available for truck campers. These leveling RV steps also have many accessories available including the GlowStep Handrail, the SafeStep which makes these pet friendly steps and DirtDestroyer, a shoe cleaning attachment.
