While camping is fun at any age, the best outdoor experiences always seem to stem from roughing it in your childhood. Everything is fun when you’re younger -- even the ‘diving-board’ effect you feel when stepping onto the factory steps of an RV or trailer. Why? It almost seems like a trampoline launch pad while in the throes of one’s childhood imagination.
But alas as we grow older, wobbly RV factory steps become nerve wrecking and adding a booster step becomes necessity. Not just to avoid hip pain or sciatica flare ups when the first step starts to seem too high, but to keep children from hurting themselves. If you’re not careful, once you and your family settle into your trailer you might end up staying inside to avoid the steps—and we all know that being indoors defeats the purpose of camping. Don’t let faulty trailer steps inhibit your experience. If only there was a company that specialized in adjustable trailer steps…
Torklift International was listening and created a solution. The GlowStep Revolution step system is the first leveling scissor step of its kind for trailer and towable applications.
The secret of the GlowStep Revolution’s durability is its uniquely engineered hinge design, where the bushing bearings are bolted for maximum stability and longevity. Our design uses specialty phenolic washers on each hinge, making deploying and stowing the steps smooth and seamless. What sets these steps apart from any other trailer steps on the market is its 7 inches of vertical step elevation adjustment.
Choose from three positions of elevation for the top step. This determines the ideal plane from the top step to your trailer entry. The All Terrain Landing Gear provides even more adjustment options on the base of the steps. Set the step landing gear individually to accommodate any uneven terrain.
All Terrain Landing Gear ensures level step configuration and supreme stability by eliminating the unsafe diving board effect. The steps connect Earth to RV so your trailer step system is firmly rooted and stable on ground level. Included with the GlowStep Revolution, the All Terrain Landing Gear can also be purchased separately and added to the original GlowStep for truck camper applications.GlowStep Revolution’s

Click here to see RVers give their first-hand accounts on how the GlowStep Revolution compares to traditional factory trailer steps. Perhaps one of the most endearing compliments we’ve received comes from RV.net forum member “Tequila.”
During Tequila’s installation of the GlowStep Revolution, the service technicians revealed that the welds holding original factory steps to his travel trailer were starting to crack and break. No doubt Tequila was blessed with good timing considering he had only owned his trailer for a year. Thanks to the GlowStep Revolution installation, a potential crisis was averted and Tequila has only positive things to say about his revolutionary trailer steps:
“I must say I am impressed… It is nice to have stable steps, especially when carrying loads in and out of the trailer. All in all, one of the best mods I have done to my trailer. They are a winner. They certainly attract attention in RV parks.” - Tequila
