“Last spring (2015) Bruce and I saw a trailer at an RV show that had scissor-type stairs like the ones we've seen for truck campers. The first thing we noticed when we climbed aboard is that the trailer didn't shake when either of us walked up and down the stairs due to the two supports on the bottom step. The stairs were called the GlowStep Revolution and were made by Torklift. We asked about buying some. Turns out they were pretty new and not available for every trailer manufacturer yet. So we left our contact info and asked them to let us know if a version was available for Lance trailers. We found out that there was no version that would fit Lance trailers.... yet.”
Lance Owners of America forum. When they first inquired about the GlowStep Revolution RV step system, at that time we debuted the 27.5” width for the steps.So begins the story of Bruce and Shannon Pound and their journey to getting the GlowStep Revolution which is written out on the
After further development and research, we created the 25.5” GlowStep Revolution width steps that fit Bruce and Shannon’s RV like a glove. We reached out to them in November to have them be one of the first to try out the new width of the RV steps and they jumped at the chance! The 27.5” width and the 25.5” width of the GlowStep Revolution will fit the majority of trailers on the market.
Features of the GlowStep Revolution
Are your RV steps too high? Are your RV steps broken or do you have recalled steps? Do you want to get rid of your RV booster step? Well, look no further because the GlowStep Revolution RV step will solve all of your old factory trailer step issues especially with the precision elevation control. Patent pending, the precision elevation control allows you to have 7 inches of vertical elevation adjustment. But don’t take our word for it. Shannon goes on to say this in her GlowStep Revolution review:
“The GlowStep Revolution stairs have a nifty feature that allows the steps to remain level in uneven terrain and eliminate the need for a portable step when the door side of the trailer is elevated for leveling.”
This nifty feature that she’s referring to? The All Terrain Landing Gear which is designed to be leveling feet for RV steps and provide Earth to RV stability.
