There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing a customer is completely happy with a product and that it’s making their lives better and easier. At Torklift, we’re dedicated to making your RVing and camping experience amazing, and Bob is no exception! Recently, we worked with Bob Vaughn who wanted to upgrade his steps, but didn’t want to go with a ladder or drawbridge-style step that allows mud, water, sand and other debris to get inside his RV. Bob chose to install the GlowStep Revolution trailer steps and had this to say:
“I received my Torklift steps the other day and installed them. They are truly awesome. My old steps were 3 steps and it was a chore to get in and out of my 5th wheel. These are 4 steps and what a difference. I have an artificial knee on my left leg and an artificial hip joint on my right leg and these steps make getting in and out a breeze.”

Upgrading factory steps
GlowStep Revolution trailer steps are designed to store inside the existing factory compartment underneath your doorway. As you can see to the left and above, Bob’s factory steps hang well below his trailer when stored and don’t reach the ground once deployed. Once installed, the GlowStep Revolution reaches the ground with its All Terrain Landing Gear and improves ground clearance when the steps are stored. Similar to the staircase found in your home, the GlowStep Revolution entry step system also has the shortest riser height in the industry at only 7.5 inches.
These trailer steps also require minimal effort and space to deploy, so no matter where you’re parked, you will be able to use your GlowStep Revolution steps. One of the most prevalent issues that are common with aftermarket RV steps is that they are designed to install within the doorway and have to be lowered down from overhead. That means 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. This could be very inconvenient in many circumstances including storage facilities, RV shop repair bays, stopping at gas stations and tight camping spots.
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)

• 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

• Secures into place via locking mechanism
• Legendary Lifetime Warranty
• Proudly made in the USA
All Terrain Landing Gear
One thing that Bob mentioned was that because of his artificial knee and hip joints, getting in and out of the 5th wheel trailer was a chore due to its step instability. With the All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet, the GlowStep Revolution RV steps connect firmly to ground level and eliminate the unsafe diving board feeling associated with factory trailer steps.
“They are solid as a rock with no jiggling or bounce. They are adjustable at the top and on the bottom also. Our dogs did not like our old steps, but with these they just go right up in the camper… This is undoubtedly the best mod I have ever done to my 5th wheel. I am truly impressed…”

The All Terrain Landing Gear come standard with the GlowStep Revolution but aren’t the only additional features available for this step system. There are also accessories that make a complete system that includes safety support and cleaning for your steps. 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.
