Gather around everyone! We have a wonderful story to tell you that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. Over the past year, we worked with Jim Allen who wanted to upgrade his trailer steps that would make their lives easier. In August 2017, Jim had a stroke which made it difficult for him to get in and out of the trailer due to the bouncy steps. Kathy, Jim’s wife, had also had a hip replacement so the bouncy steps were a no-go for her as well. Since they were planning on living in the trailer full-time, they needed steps that would provide full stability.
Torklift saw this as a great opportunity to help a couple of campers make their experience safer and more fun. We sent the GlowStep Revolution trailer steps to Jim and Kathy. This is what they had to say about their new trailer steps:
“We love our Torklift GlowStep Revolution!!! We love how solid the steps are, as do our boxers. EASILY retracted for towing and EASILY opened and deployed for use.”
Jim and Kathy loved using their GlowStep Revolution steps and were elated with how much easier it made it for them and their pups to enter and exit the RV. This includes the All Terrain Landing Gear that allowed for Earth to RV contact – which means no more shaky steps. Then, disaster struck! Due to the flooding that occurred in the east, Jim and Kathy’s Jayco was destroyed in the West Virginia floods, and they had to replace everything they lost.
Once Jim and Kathy got their new RV, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get them a “RV warming present” – a new set of GlowStep Revolution steps to replace the ones they lost!
“You guys are the “cat’s meow.” We received the new GlowSteps today! You are all AWESOME! Never thought we would get another GlowStep Revolution set up, it’s unbelievably great!! Your team makes us feel more like family, and not just customers.”
Happily Trailer Step After
It’s now been some time since Jim and Kathy have had their second set of GlowStep Revolution steps installed, and living in their trailer has been better than ever.
“Got rid of the OEM steps on our Mobile Suites 5th wheel. High first step. Wife had a hip replacement and I’d had a stroke with a weak left leg. Installed a 5-step GlowStep Revolution steps a little over a year ago. We love them. No issues. Adjustable step into the 5er on the top step and bottom step legs for stabilization. They also work great for our dog… well worth it and I’d highly recommend!”

Now, Jim and Kathy are living happily ever after in their trailer with their boxers Buddy and Sheba. So how exactly is the GlowStep Revolution making Jim and Kathy’s RVing experience more convenient and safer? These trailer steps require minimal effort and space to deploy, so no matter where you’re parked, you will be able to use your GlowStep Revolution steps.
Also, a prevalent issue that is common with aftermarket RV steps is that they’re designed to install within the doorway and have to be lowered down from overhead. You have to stand underneath it to lower them down, and also have a certain amount of room next to your RV in order to deploy these steps. The GlowStep Revolution is a no-drill, direct bolt-on installation that installs into your factory step compartment. That means that these RV steps stay outside the RV and you don’t have to deploy them over your head to get into the trailer.
Features of the GlowStep Revolution steps:
• Only RV step system with 7 inches of vertical step elevation adjustment
• Unparalleled stability eliminating the unsafe diving board effect
• Earth to RV: Brings step to ground level (No more unsafe booster step)
• Landing gear quickly levels on uneven terrain (included)
• Step system accessories: Handrail, pet safety barriers and shoe cleaning attachment
• Made from lightweight aircraft grade aluminum (rust free)
• Direct bolt-on installation easily replaces your factory step system
• Bushing bearing bolted for maximum stability and longevity – also provides smooth operation when deploying or retracting steps to prevent binding and grinding common with factory steps
• Glows in the dark for up to 10 hours with only five minutes of light exposure
• Secures into place via locking mechanism
• Legendary Lifetime Warranty
• Proudly made in the USA
As an added bonus, the GlowStep Revolution has many accessories available to make a complete system. There is the GlowGuide Handrail to make getting in and out of your RV easier and safer, the SafeStep barrier for pet friendly steps and DirtDestroyer which is a shoe cleaning attachment to prevent debris from coming into the RV.
